By teckzilla Word Is Bond

TWIB Meets returns with a short one on one with UK hip-hop/soul group Raylo. The group took some time out of their busy schedule to share with us their humble beginnings in the music inndustry and much more. Sit back, relax and get to know more of them below.
How and when did you all get started in music?
Our music journey started years ago tbh, four different worlds that came together.
Do you remember the first song you ever made as a group? How was the process like?
A song called Rest Easy but it isn’t online. Really cool song… haha
What has been your biggest challenge?The biggest challenge I would say is getting your name out there. Being creatives and then putting on our business hat, then back to creative is a lot to take on. I would say getting our music heard has been the hardest, trying to find the right demographic, the right shows, the right outlets to promote our music.

What have been the biggest highlights?

Finishing and releasing our EP and getting the single “So Gone” played on BBC 1XTRA

What is the greatest thing about working in the music industry? And what would you change if you had the opportunity?

Greatest thing would be being able to create something you love. Something I would change is coming across people who I feel aren’t transparent and honest. I feel these are sometimes individuals in the greatest positions to change an artists position. You would want honesty and a straight answer.

Are there any other interesting facts about the group that hardly anyone else knows?

Our first song was featured on a pot noodle advert

What has been your strangest celebrity encounter?

We remixed Mark Ronson “stop me” and I met him two days after at a party. Broke it down to him and he was very approachable and wanted to hear it. He gave me his email and up until this day we have yet to send it to him hahaha.

 

Who would be your ideal dinner guest, living or dead, and what would you serve them?

Pharell Williams, and probably say fam tbh there’s the fridge bro… I ain’t cooking nothing bro but make yourself at home.

What has been a seminal experience for you?

Seeing people like our music. Gravitate to it and spread it around. That gives a creative a lot of energy.

Is there a particular song or musical passage that never fails to move you emotionally?

Hmmm, I would say gospel, Any style of music I would say that is honest and truthful. You can always tell when your listening.

What are the greatest songs, albums, books, movies, TV shows, websites you’ve ever come across?

Song, Outkast hey yeah!! I think is incredible always makes you smile. , book the bible. Pretty cool book. Movies, paid in full I’ve watched like 10 times. TV shows mmmm Fresh Prince of bel air.

Name 5 songs (yours excluded) that we would expect to find on your iPod or Music Player

Travis Scott – antidote
Drake – any drake song tbh
N.E.R.D – Provider
2pac – letter to my unborn
Miguel – Sky Walker
