With his 2nd album being listed as one of the top 10 albums of 2019 by the Time, the virtuoso has been consistently blessing us with releases, juxtaposing dark sounds with hopeful emotions through a variety of seemingly undefinable cosmic music. Thank you so much for giving us your time and knowledge. The concert was amazing man. So how is Switzerland and Montreux so far ? It’s been treating me very well, man.

Soulquest LAB #14 - An interview with Blue November

He told us how recording his own voice took his music to the next level, the producers he works with, the music that he's currently working on and a lot more. Hey what’s up man ?  How are you?

You have the ability to rap on uptempo trap beats like Swamp or Sanctuary, be flawless on Spacey and melancholic beats like Void or Pea Coat Pimp and rap/even sing very melodic hooks on Neo-Soul/Hip-Hop productions. What would you attribute this to? I’ve never felt confined as far...
