When I was 10 I started listening to Hip Hop. I guess it was just cool to listen to that style of music back then. The only band everyone was listening to was “SEL” famous hip hop band in Lithuania. These guys were just 16 years old. Here are some old school videos I found online.
SEL - Kiemas
This song is about the neighborhood. It’s a song about all the things you do and how much you love your neighborhood.
Sel - (aš toks) kaip ir tuThis song is all about how the same we are. You do one thing and I do another thing but in the end, I and you are the same.
So because of “SEL” I, started writing lyrics and every time I heard a hip-hop beat or something similar to it I would start to dance and just imagine myself on stage. I wrote my first lyrics when I was playing “DonkeyKong” on Nintendo. Still, love this song.
Donkey Kong Country Theme
This melody is so nice and brings me back memories when I listen to it.
When I turned 16 my family and me moved to the Netherlands. I went to school, learned Dutch and found out that you could legally drink beer and smoke cigarettes when you were 16. That’s when going out, partying and trying out new things started. If you live in Holland there is just no way you never tried smoking weed. So I tried it, but didn’t like it that much.
So while I was partying I met a guy who had his own studio at home and I was so enthusiastic about it that I went to record to his studio the same day. I always dreamt to have my own song and from that day we baked them like crazy. Here is one of our songs from back in the day.
Tizoy - Louder
Yup, that’s me and my best friend from the Philippines.
We produced many songs and collaborated with many different artists. Our songs were played on the radio and some of the songs that we produced for others were shown on TV. All we needed was to be known just a bit more and get a deal as producers with a label.
My best friend and an amazing producer were deported back to the Philippines just at the moment when everything was going so good with music. This is also the part where my music passion faded away.
Tizoy - Clubbin
This was my last song I have ever recorded.
I always listen to music and I have moments when I feel free or I feel angry or cool or cry. If you love music, you feel it and express how you feel.
