Interview with Borino!


Out team got to sitdown with upcoming artis Borino! Here's what he had to tell us!

Who is Borino?

Borino is a young man who is working hard to achieve as much as he can in the music industry, he has been writing songs since he was about 9 years old, he has always had an interest in Rap and Grime. He was encouraged to write down lyrics as a way to help with his depression and anxiety and over the years this has helped greatly. He will work tirelessly to achieve a high standard with his music, he has collaborated with quite a few people and he is always willing to listen to good advice. Being drill influenced despite his recent release Borino is extremely versatile, he has displayed this in songs such as Levis Song which has a crazy level of Lyricism and songs like Big Bitz with E L Prince where he uses word play and punchlines over a catchy afro swing instrumental.

The Interview:

What first got you into Music?

My Mum watching MTV and it seemed so cool, I would see people like N-dubz and Robbie Williams and I would just be glued to the screen 

Who or What inspired you to make Music?

I was listening a lot to Eminem when I was younger and the stories he was telling and I thought I could be just as good if not better

What is your creative process like?

Firstly, I would find an instrumental and then I’d find a Melody once I did that I’d take it line by line and make sure every Lyric made sense and then add a few punchlines and wordplays in there

Has your Musical Journey had a deliberate direction?

I would say it was deliberate in many ways because the type of music I make is the type of music I listen to, most of my music is for me so I’m not trying to cater to an audience as long as I’m happy with the product then it is fine and if people take some joy from listening or feel the same way I do then it’s even better.

What is your biggest Musical challenge?

My biggest musical challenge is being taken seriously as an Artist as I am independent and it is very hard to get peoples attention especially when you’re doing everything yourself.

What would you be doing right now if it wasn’t for your music career?

Believe it or not when I was 17 I was actually signed to Burnley Football Club but due to unforeseen circumstances I had to change my career path, luckily for me I had been doing music from a young age so the career change wasn’t as hard as it might have been.

How do you feel the Internet has impacted the Music Business? 

I think it’s great for exposure however it’s terrible for helping musician to stay afloat, because years ago if you sold 30,000 Albums you could make £300,000 but nowadays if you get 30,000 streams you end up with only £35 unfortunatley.

What’s the best advice you’ve ever been given?

Stay Consistent and Never Lie.

If you were talking to a younger version of you, what advice would you give yourself?

I would say, to just stay focused as there is so many temptations that it is hard to keep both eyes on the end goal.

What’s next for you?

I’m currently working on my second project and I’m hoping it will be ready for The New Year, you should expect to see me working with some big artists and doing more shows in 2022.

I have just released the first single off The EP called Heart Attack the video came out on Friday 29th October 2021 however on Spotify it’s already my third most streamed song after only being out for 3 weeks. The Song is about claiming my place within the UK Rap scene, in the first verse I go into a little bit of detail about why I stopped releasing Music when I was 16 however in the second verse I have tried to show the growth in my pen game displaying multiple types of lyricism. I have another single on the way as well named Watch me Bleed both of these songs will be available to stream on all digital platforms.
