Dylan Eisenhauer aka HiVibes is a type of artists that’s unpredictable when it comes to their method and ensuing musical prowess. The younger musician was set upon his path by way of a psychedelic expertise in his youth which has illuminated the trail he now treads on. His intention by way of his music is to convey a way of unity and understanding with each launch.
The artist has simply launched his newest album combine entitled Duality: Gentle To Darkish, which is a trippy and exploratory tackle the world because it presently stands, and the potentials that lay past it. He took the time to take a seat down with us and focus on his varied influences, how he received began within the trade, and the place he plans to take issues subsequent.
Hey Dylan, thanks for taking the time to reply a couple of questions, let’s begin off straightforward, what led you into music manufacturing?
Hello, it’s an actual pleasure to be right here! I received into creating music once I was simply a teen. I’ve at all times been so moved by music when there was no person to narrate to or give me hope or inspiration music was at all times my treatment. I had at all times thought of the thought of making music however by no means took it critically till I used to be 17. I had a life altering psychedelic expertise that jogged my memory of my function. I’ve this mission to assist and heal as many individuals on this planet as I presumably can with this quick time I’ve right here.
After that have I simply knew music is the simplest approach to affect individuals particularly the youthful generations, whether or not it’s a constructive affect or not – music and music tradition is likely one of the most, if not essentially the most influential issues on the planet at the moment. That alone is what led me into making music critically together with across the similar time as that have, I misplaced my pals, household, and girlfriend and was simply in any respect time low and new there was just one approach out and that was to develop and work on my craft and expertise.
Any explicit influences you have got in your type or method?
My largest affect in music by far is The Underachievers significantly AKthesavior and the remainder of the beast coast tremendous group. The primary time I heard The Underachievers and Flatbush Zombies Capital STEEZ and all of them I used to be solely 13 again in 2013, listening to that music it was simply so completely different my younger thoughts gravitated in direction of it. Again then, I didn’t actually perceive all of the religious references and philosophical bars they had been spitting however I knew it was high quality in comparison with what I had been listening to.
By the point I used to be 14 going into 2014, I used to be already obsessive about the third eye and different chakras and simply elevating my consciousness typically. No particular person or artist I’ve ever associated to love AKthesavior (Akeem Joseph) it’s like each phrase he says is talking to my soul, like his experiences are simply so like mine, or possibly he’s simply capable of convey his experiences in a approach that’s tremendous relatable to me. His music has critically healed and constructed my consciousness.
I don’t know the place I might be in life with out Beast Coast rappers influencing me a lot… However I doubt my life would look remotely something prefer it does now.
How has the pandemic affected you when it comes to music manufacturing, you discovering extra inspiration in closed quarters?
With the pandemic altering the entire world quickly, I discovered myself and music altering quickly together with it. Because it appears we now have no alternative, or we get left previously. I see a lot mistaken with the way in which individuals and governments are responding to this entire scenario and it motivates me to get some constructive music on the market to actually assist shine some gentle on this darkish time. I don’t suppose influencing individuals in a constructive approach has ever been so essential in my lifetime. So, this has gotten me motivated to get my album out earlier than it’s too late for the world to come back again. So a lot of inspiration from this tragedy.
Describe your course of slightly bit, some go for lyrics first, others for the music first, what’s the HiVibes type entail?
For me the method is all about flowing freely, to me nothing ought to really feel pressured or your music will sound pressured. I’ll take heed to 100 beats and never even use a single one. It must be one thing excellent that simply hits my soul and the vibe alone makes me wish to communicate.
As soon as I received the precise beat the lyrics simply circulation out of my coronary heart with out actually a lot thought wanted. The feelings in my soul are so sturdy they communicate for themselves. Generally I don’t even write the lyrics down. When recording I at all times try to clear the vitality of the room with incense or sage and use normally blue crystals to cost my throat chakra and hold it sturdy all through the hours and lengthy nights of recording.
I normally like to make use of psychedelics whereas within the recording course of as a result of I really feel very related with supply and it’s like I get suggestions from Gaia whereas tapped in like that but it surely’s completely pointless I can spit on the drop of a hat.
Any tracks you have got which are significantly private for you?
The intro to my new album Duality Gentle to Darkish is titled “HiVibes” clearly after my stage identify. This music means lots to me it begins the entire album off with a double entendre “HiVibes will make life an excellent time” as both I’ll make life an excellent time or having excessive vibrations will make your life an excellent time which is a metaphor for what I’m all about elevating vibrations of anybody my vitality meets and making the most effective out of the loopy traumatic life all of us are caught in collectively.
The title monitor “Duality Darkish to Gentle” might be my favourite on the album due to the attractive dualistic nature of the music. I put blood sweat and tears in that one significantly it took me days and days to file, and all I can say is the sound speaks for itself. That music has a number of potential to heal and actually simply change life’s for my part. It modified mine that’s for certain.
What’s the dream for HiVibes? Touring, contracts, there are a lot of avenues to discover, what’s yours?
The dream for HiVibes is a planet stuffed with unified wholesome individuals all working collectively for the higher good of humanity and the universe as an entire. I simply dream of a world the place we are able to all be free slot in and love and empathize with one another. No person ought to starve no person must be homeless no person must be poor we must always all be wealthy bodily mentally and spiritually. In fact, I wish to journey the world and contact souls in each metropolis. However I solely actually need this highlight as a result of I do know I can change lives of so many if I actually apply myself and steadiness my coronary heart and thoughts.
What’s subsequent for HiVibes?
Subsequent HiVibes is about to drop a bunch of banger music movies, merch and different unique content material for the followers now and blow up within the meantime. I’ve been taking off on social media nothing too loopy received my TikTok banned at 12k but it surely solely took me a month to get 12k so I’m assured I can do it once more 10x higher. The long run is trying vivid, I’ve no doubts about that!
