Our Tim floated a few questions over to D.R.A.M., the Virginian soul-trap rapper who’s heading Down Under for Falls Festival and Sydney’s Field Day.
It’s been just over a year since Big Baby DRAM was released – how has that record changed your life?
Big Baby DRAM literally put the world onto my full range of sounds, and solidified me in the name of music.
What are you most looking forward to about your impending trip to Australia?
I’m most looking forward to just the sites, and feeling the vibes of everyone. It’s another place I never been to before; I’m gonna just expect the unexpected.
You spend a lot of time collaborating on tracks; who has been your favourite act with which you’ve shared a collab?
George Clinton, ’cause he’s the captain of the mothership!
The Falls Festival line-up is stacked with talent; is there anyone on there you’re planning to collaborate with?
Not necessarily anyone, but I am very cool with Joey Bada$$ – that’s the bro.
The fest dates sit squarely over the New Year period; what’s your 2018 resolution?
To keep levelling up, that’s it! That’s really it!
What does 2018 have install for D.R.A.M.?
Your guess is as good as mine, “honey!”
