‘Ya No Te Conozco’ | [Video] Demo by Phantasiis

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rngcXDTnYLs Hello, Here's a video of a song I wrote in July. It's in Spanish. I hope that you like it. I was having lots of nostalgia when I was writing the lyrics, and the music felt right. There's times where I write the music first, and the lyrics follow suit. Other times it's the [...]

‘Estoy Tranquilo’ – Instrumental by Phantasiis

https://soundcloud.com/phantasiis/lofi-2020-04 Hello, Here's a new beat that I made recently. I hope that you like it. I spent several days without making any music. I've been, however, playing my guitar and doing freestyles in Spanish to get a creative flow going. I'm finally sleeping better and feel like a human being again. I feel that [...]

Phantasiis – ‘Summer Beats’ | Instrumental Hip-Hop Playlist

Here's a playlist of several singles that I released today on my SoundCloud. For some reason which I yet need to explore, I didn't want to release it. Perhaps it was a sensation of impostor syndrome disguised as procrastination. I had several songs finished and ready to go, and I still did not do the [...]

The Summer Demos

The Summer Demos

I'd like to share with you a playlist with some songs I've made during the summer. I've been practicing and learning how to produce hip-hop. My goal is to produce the LoFi genre.

Checking-In

Next week is finals week. I’ll earn a bachelor’s degree in applied psychology. Last Thursday was my last lecture as an undergrad. I felt nostalgia.  A chapter ends and another begins. Many years and sacrifices happened to get to this point. Below are some questions that I’m exploring tonight. I would love to read your [...]

phantasiis – My New Music Project

Exploring new sounds and emotions through music is important to me. I'm revisiting lyrics and ideas in Spanish, as reflected on my last spoken word record. This turned into my new project: phantasiis. This project of mine is going to be entirely in Spanish, my first language. There's something in me that I want to [...]

Music Updates And Recommendations

Music Updates And Recommendations

This winter break was supposed to be dedicated to the craft. I was waiting for it. Almost to the point of romanticizing it. I didn't go as planned, however. I wanted to use the newest addition to the home studio, the Maschine MK3. Going deep with this one during my spare time. I have a [...]

Five Lessons Learned After a Year of Music Releases

Five Lessons Learned After a Year of Music Releases

Time flies. It's been a year since I started to release songs through Spotify, Apple Music, Deezer, YouTube, Amazon, and iHeart Radio among many other outlets and stores. I released 21 songs since October 2017. A spoken-word record will be released in the near future. I decided to do things differently with the latter. I decided [...]

When It’s Time To Record Music

When It’s Time To Record Music

You know it’s time. The ideas are there, and you can hear the melody inside of you. Maybe you feel the rhythm in your hands. Perhaps you already got the chorus down, or the last verse for your unwritten song. The build up of emotions and ideas that will be your fuel when you are [...]

Concluding Thoughts After Finishing A Song

I am releasing a new single this Friday, September 21st on Spotify. This song has a lot of meaning for me because I recorded it at the tipping point of desperation. Hence, it seemed appropriate to title it “Completely Desperate.” This song was cathartic and necessary for me to do. I have been wanting to [...]
