Where are you from?
My name is Laitsi Diesa, I am an 18 years old upcoming Australian hip-hop artist based in Adelaide. I originally came from Malawi which is in Southeastern Africa. I came to Adelaide Australia Early in 2016
When did you start making music?
I didn’t start making music until i came to Australia in 2016, but when I was back in Malawi i used to see other people doing music and i really liked what i was hearing, the art and everything was just awesome so when i came in Australia in 2016 that’s when i decided to try it for myself.
How do you describe your music?
My music has that up and coming unique sound of hip-hop/rap. Pretty gentle and yet so powerful. I also do some pop and indie rock type things in a very unique way. But mainly it’s just hip-hop/rap.
Favorite moment from your career?
The most favorite moment of my career is when I am performing. For me, that’s the best feeling. Especially when every single person at the show is singing along to your lyrics. That’s amazing. There’s no other feeling like that.
Who is your biggest musical inspiration?
My biggest inspiration right now is The Kid Laroi. He’s an Australian rap artist but now lives in the US. Laroi inspires me in so many ways. Every time i want to make a new song, I just listen to his music and the inspiration that I get from that is crazy. The fact that he is only 17 years old and has done so many incredible things just proves that nothing is impossible. You can do anything you want. It doesn’t matter how old you are, Just focus on your dreams, put in the work, and keep chasing.
What is your producing software?
I use FL Studio to produce my music. I used to use Ableton Live but it was too complicated so I just went back to FL Studio because i knew how to use it and just mastered it and improved everything. I have been using this program for a while now and it works very awesomely for me.
What other things do you do besides making music?
Some other interesting things I do would probably be dancing. My brothers and I actually formed a dance group. We do breakdance, choreography. people actually book us to go perform on their birthday parties, different things, different events. Everywhere which is pretty cool.
What is your favorite track of all time?
Throughout my career, I have written and produced so many tracks. Every time i make a new song I love it and I really think I did better than last time, which is true. This loop keeps ongoing. Every time i make a new song it becomes my favorite. I don’t really have one specific song that’s my favorite, but there’s this new song I made, it’s called ‘IF SHE BAD’’ it’s Coming out November 23rd. This is the only song I would call my favorite. Ever since I recorded it, I can’t stop playing it. So I will definitely say this my favorite song of all time.
What is your best-producing tip?
The best tip I can give you about producing is having a vision. Understand what you want to work on and how you’re going to achieve that. Most importantly is trusting your ears when listening to the project while working on it.
Why did you start making music?
Music has always had such a deep connection with me ever since I was a kid. As I grew older I started to understand the concept of music. I’ve been through a lot of things in my life, ups, and downs. In my whole life i never really had anyone i could rely on and open up all my feelings to them. I make music because it helps me get off what’s on my chest, helps me breathe. Write my heart out through my music and I hope somebody out there could relate. Music is my life.
What are your goals for the future?
My biggest goal right now is performing at big events, for example, Laneway Festival, FOMO plus more. Am also trying to collaborate with one of my favorite artist The Kid Laroi, so I am really working hard to make it happen.
What advice could you give to young artists/producers/dj’s?
My advice to young musicians is, do not get discouraged by a lack of success in a certain project. Love your craft and expect support from people close to you/ colleagues. Most importantly, don’t compare yourself to others.
Please write a message to your fans.
I just want to say a huge thanks to every single person who has been with me from the very start of my career and always supports my movement. Y’all really mean the world to me. Keep being amazing and much love to y’all.
