Tanki brings in a completely different musical style, which he personally refers to as “Guitar-Trap”. The rock-like elements in his music stem from his passion for playing guitar, which he started at the age of 14. He is extremely skilled in all acoustic, bass, and electric guitar.
“This is my first ever single release. More songs will follow soon,” he shares.
When it comes to juggling a full-time job and his musical career, he had this to say: “It’s quite challenging because my job requires careful attention to detail and thinking. So I’ve had to push myself by having sleepless nights just so I can also be able to do my music.
“Rock music has a lot of energy to it, mainly because of the hard guitar. That’s why I decided to bring in the same energy to trap music since it’s something that has never been done.”
“It’s just about the experiences I’ve had, mainly those of when I decided to pursue my career in music despite my extremely demanding job. I mention things such as staying up at night because I had to teach myself how to produce music, which I mostly did via YouTube.”
