The Unlimited talked to Elliot Michaud, singer and guitarist of Little Racer

Why Little Racer ?

Little Racer is a Beach Boy reference for me personally. 

What Inspire you?

For me, lyrics are pretty inspiring part of the process. They are the most free part. I really enjoy telling stories and having a chance to dream up a possibility that maybe somebody else hadn’t really imagined. Just taking all the rich wonderful things around us, especially being a bartender, I get to experience so many different kinds of people and really observe them pretty accurately while I’m at the bar. People watching is a big part of writing lyrics for me. Observing all the different ways of living around us.

What is your favorite word?

Satisfaction

Let's talk social media...
Well social media is self-aware. Everyone who is sharing on the internet is totally self-aware of the image that they are giving off. I would think. There are definitely some socially ignorant people who post things without really realizing how it is portraying themselves. I think for the most part it is an inaccurate representation of people, because people can put whatever they want up there. I almost infer the opposite message when someone posts something online. When someone is so desperate to make their life seen so glamorous or wonderful it makes me kind of question the sincerity. If it was really so wonderful wouldn’t they be enjoying it instead of wondering how many likes they got on a photo?

How do you relate NYC to the band?
Well, I would say New York has a lot to do with at least how we feel about the band. It is hard not to be impacted by New York while you are inside of it. It is like this huge wall of glass the encompasses us. Its hard not to be effected by it. Being a band in NYC you can not escape it, it demands things of you. If the band was located elsewhere would the band be different? Probably. We are definitely not trying to be a New York band but it just kind of imparts itself on to you in a way. As a person New York has helped me grow. I think personal growth is required here to really create a life here, you have to grow and adapt. I think I could be happy in a lot of different places, a lot of different worlds.

What would you consider your biggest goal?
I want to believe that there is a happy balance, a way to achieve your creative vision and popularity at the same time. I feel like success for this band would be, to jump onto a nice label, and going on some tours and release some records that we were proud of. I produce and mix the music, and I would love to see the band propel that into something I am able to do outside the bands entity, into a career in itself. That is my personal vision, but I mean jumping onto some tours would be great, we just want to play music and have fun.

Zak Downtown is #alwaysdown for anything.

Established in Downtown, New York City Zak is making hip hop fun again with his new single “Don’t Blow My High”. The record is making waves at NYC clubs and the video is bursting with energy. We caught up with Zak to find out where exactly is “downtown”, talk about his new video, and what is to come in the future for this chill rapper.

Inspiration and NY 

    I was born and raised in lower Manhattan, hence the name Zak Downtown. I'm inspired by ambition and generally anything dope. I appreciate people who have an eye for things that are aesthetically unique and I really just draw inspiration from the experiences I’ve had growing up in NYC and being in love with hip-hop music.

The birth of “Don’t Blow my High” 

    “Don't Blow My High” is a remix of TNGHT's “Higher Ground.” They’re a super dope production duo and when my engineer and I heard the record we knew I had to remix it. I sent it over to my homie [Murda] Mook and he immediately came through to put a verse on it. After that, I was lucky to have DJ Sinatra start playing it at clubs in NYC followed by a ton of other DJs. Every time I hear this record it gets everyone in the room hyped no matter what, so I linked up with Ben Guzman to shoot the music video and bring the record to life.

 The future

   I’ll be releasing a mix tape come June followed by an EP in the summer/fall. I’m about to connect with new management so there should be a lot of things going down. I want to push boundaries as far as the music and creative content goes; I’m always experimenting with new sounds and ideas. That's just how it is when you grow up surrounded by so many different types of people and see so much crazy shit in your life.
