Featured Artist #23: Introducing Jaime Deraz on Fresh Dose.

Each week Fresh Dose. will be featuring a new artist from our playlist on our blog to highlight great independent talent.
1: Choose 3 words that best describe you as an artist?
Three words that describe me as an artist are honest, emotional, and versatile. I always write from personal experience, and try to cover all genres from the softer, singer-songwriter style music to all types of dance music!
2. What was your inspiration for writing this record?
This song came to me when I was reflecting on a relationship that just didn’t survive the summer. I wanted it to be simple and catchy, for people to easily relate to, but I also wanted to include some more personal details about the relationship. The track is super special to me, and it is one of those tracks that I think had to be written for me to be able to fully heal.
3: Shout out section - who’s your favourite independent artist we should listen out for?
My favorite independent artist that you should look out for is Bad Boyfriend! He’s an artist that I collaborate with frequently, who I really respect. His sound is super unique, and he always brings something to our tracks together that makes them feel whole. I couldn’t do it without him!
4: What’s your other favourite record on this week's Fresh Dose. Top 20?
‘FTS’ by Brooke Daye is a super amazing track! Her voice is super unique and I really love the hook…it’s stuck in my head! Definitely glad I discovered it from this weeks top 20 and I’ll be adding it to my library for sure. :)
