After releasing his self entitled project Allamuto and recently releasing his visuals for single "Fly away with me" we got a chance to tap in with artist Allamuto and find out more about him. Check out his full interview below:

Walk us through your background- Tell us more about you and your music

I’m a Creator from The Dirty South presenting a humorous , afrofuturist romanticized surreality through harmonies and hypnotic beats ranging from R&B Bedroom POP EDM and Hiphop . It presents An escapism while giving you an entertaining trip of a lifetime that you can playback like a classic.

What inspires you?

The feeling that you can feel and inspire people through art and music the way it has for me my entire life . Music and Art has always been there when I look and I have nothing but myself to hold onto because at the end of the day money and relationships has been a temporary. I hope for longevity but dealing with life and it’s turns I could always get lost in a pair of headphones and a microphone.

What are some of the obstacles you've faced and how has it made you better?

Having to make something from nothing but a dollar and a dream you tend to try everything and see it all . I’ve hosted countless house parties and worked rave dance floors of hundreds to try to entertain a crowd and network while achieving my dream and make rent at the same time. I’ve laughed in the face of a man at gunpoint as he asked for everything I had as we counted a nights work and gave him a shot and a pat on the back . Been Raided by police at the height of the hype of a movement. Learned different ways to save people from seizures during my shows . Gained and lost everything to go back and gain everything again. It’s made me relentless in this mission because I LOVE what I do ! This will never change. I’ve gained a lot of lasting connections that has pushed me to this point as I hope I’ve done the same for them.

What is your 5 year plan for your music and for yourself?

I want to be on a world tour five years from now and to be a father .

What do you want people to takeaway from your music?

I want you to feel Damn Good anytime you are going through something where you just want to get lost in a pair of headphones or what to entertain a group of friends with something different they never heard before. I want you to listen like it’s an Art Piece at a Millionaire Art Gallery.
