Good Day Mizgin! How is everything in the music world?
Good day! Everything is great, just in the studio working on my album everyday!
Ok, I always like to ask, what would you say to someone if they came up to you asked “What do you do?”
It’s simple, I’m an artist. It’s something that I live for more than something that I do. I remember being really, really young, and I was watching a concert on TV. I looked at the singer and I just knew that I was going to be that. I think that was before I could even talk!
Tell me more about career? How long have you been doing music? What have been your biggest accomplishments? Biggest setbacks? How did you overcome them?
I’ve been in love with music for as long as I can remember, but my first release was in 2013 with my promotional single Get You Off. It was #1 on iTunes in Sweden the day after it got released, which was super cool! But to be honest I don’t really focus on accomplishments or setbacks. I’m always thinking how to get better and move forward and not what happened in the past.
Your biggest song and video is “Get You Off” (which has become quite controversial), I actually just recently discovered it, I dig it a lot. How was that song concept and video created? Take us into your mind while creating it!
The concept came from the song, which is obviously very sexy. I feel the song should create the music video because I want the video to give the song a face. My team and I shared some ideas with the director, and the rest is history.
You have a natural sexuality in your music and image, which I find empowering and more people in general should embrace it. But I also noticed it has caused some controversy. What are your thoughts on women and sexuality? Are we behind as a society?
I don’t think that we are behind when it comes to women and sexuality, I think a lot of women are open about their sexuality today, but just like you said, it causes controversy. That’s the problem. Would it cause the same controversy if a man would do it?
How important is social media and actually talking to your fans been in elevating your career Mizgin?
I think that social media is very important. It’s definitely the easiest way to have a relationship with your fans. You can share pictures, thoughts and much more with each other. It becomes a personal experience between me and the fans.
Can you tell us about any new projects that you are working on? Who are you working with?
I actually just released my official debut single, “If I Said I’m In Love (Suicide)” which is available on iTunes. I’m really excited about it. The music video is coming in the next few weeks as well.
We have a saying here “DO WHAT YOU DESIRE” or #DWYD. How does that apply to what you are doing with your music?
Do what you desire is the coolest saying. That’s not only how I do my music, that’s how I live my life. It’s simple and easy. If you’re here to live for other people, or to seek approval from them, then you are not living your life to the fullest. You have one life to do what you desire.
How can we find out more about you and your music online? Facebook? Twitter? Website?
Are there any last words of wisdom or advice?
Thank you so much for your time! Do what you desire!
