Interview - Dreemy Alpha


Dreemy Alpha is a seasoned artist, executive producer, director, and graphic designer who is taking the hip-hop and rap industry by storm.


Dreemy Alpha is an international artist from the DMV who has spent years manoeuvring behind multiple successful rap entities as he built his own brand, using his graphic and cinematography skill set. His music caught on around sets and studios, becoming encouraged by DMV Hometown Heroes, Fat Trel, 3ohBlack, WillThaRapper, and more to take his music seriously. This is why it was no surprise his first official debut single ‘K.I.L.L.A,’ quickly climbed the charts to #40 on iTunes. The album, ReLOADN, also debuted at #13 on the charts as well. Legends such as T-Pain have taken to Twitch and Twitter to show their support, reacting to the hit record in excitement. Dreemy Alpha is now a touring artist with constant radio spins, who is quickly becoming a household name.


“‘Ooh’ is a dope confident party song. The track honestly came together organically. When I heard the beat I just went into the booth and just felt like saying ‘Ooh!’ Everything else just fell into place melodically.” - Dreemy Alpha comments on the track.


We sat down with Dreemy Alpha to discuss his music and much more. Here's what he had to say:


Hey Dreemy Alpha, welcome to FLEX! How are you?


That’s crazy, we call one of my best friends, Cannon as well ha! Thanks for having me on FLEX, it’s a blessing to be here. I’m doing good man I can’t complain. I’ve just been keeping my head down and working.


Congratulations on your new single ‘Ooh’ - what inspired this particular song?


I wanted to create a song that made me feel confident when I heard it, something I can get fly to, and pull up to the club too. you know, that feeling you get right before you pull up to an event and you know you got the perfect outfit on and nobody could tell you anything, I wanted the song to make me feel like that.

And do you have to be in a certain mood to write?


Sometimes I do, and most times I don’t. If I get a beat from my team, safe space sounds, all I have to do is be feeling the vibe of the instrumental. Actually, that’s what puts me in the mood.


How was the recording and writing process?


The recording process was pretty easy, my engineer, Jamal the great usually doesn’t let me listen to a beat until I get into the studio. He believes that I am inspired the most when I first hear the beat, and he could be right ha. I didn’t even write the hook to this song down. I just went into the booth and started saying, “Ooh”. And then I mumble the next few lines maybe about four or five times until I knew exactly what I wanted to say. After that, I just let the vibe of the beat take over and wrote whatever I felt came to my mind.


For viewers that don’t know Dreemy Alpha, how would you describe your sound?


I actually have a hard time describing my music, because I have so many different bags to hop in, it’s hard to put me into one genre. But what I can say is that my music feels like home, a lot of my music will take you back to a good memory of yours, so I’ve been told. Even when I’m not using samples, my sound is very nostalgic. And at times very lyrical as well.


And what are some of those activities that you engage yourself in when you aren't writing or recording in the studio?


When I’m not writing and recording in the studio, I also handle a lot of visual treatments and artwork to go with my music. The point I’m at in my music career, it requires a lot more attention than just writing and recording in the studio. I have to constantly be thinking about the next move, the next song, the next visual. And I have so much music to give the world, honestly, it feels like I’m playing catch-up. So now, more than ever, if it’s not spending time with my family, or my wife, I am doing something music related.
