PREMIERE: Julian Stephen “Streaming”
The soundtrack to your next "Netflix & Chill" session
Queens native Julian Stephen has been rapping for a while, but it’s 2016 now and he’s feels it’s time for a change. His mellowed-out tune “Streaming,” produced by Tim Wicked, is a 360 from his more comical tracks like “Blind Date.”
Ahead of the premiere, we reached out to Julian via email to get the details on his new EP, outsider the demo.
[“Streaming”] is the first cut off of my 6-track EP, outsider the demo, set for a release later this spring. This is a Netflix & Chill theme song. Making this EP showed me that everything needs to be seamless and tie in each other to work, from cover art to concepts, lyrics, and beats
No one should be allowed to call themselves an artist without knowing their art. Now I find myself reading books on color just to understand its history if I want a scene to look a certain way. I’m sitting in restaurants arguing over wine about color tones, and even why an ass to tits ratio in my video is important because EVERYTHING MATTERS. Aesthetic is important to me and I treat it with care now. Music is more than verses, and “Streaming” is a vibe you can listen to in all settings. It’s just the start of a new chapter in my career, and outsider the demo is cohesive with many layers, and I’m excited to deliver the journey I created in six songs.
