We are sharing our recent interview with singer, songwriter, DJ aand producer Jesse Neo.

Pro Media Mag : First of all tell us about the start of your music career.

Jesse Neo :

I have been into music since I was a kid. I remember being introduced to violin, piano and singing lessons at the age of 7. At first, I didn’t see it as a career or anything like that. However, as I got older and my musical knowledge improved, I was encouraged by a lot of my friends to do so. Then in 2016, I took some electronic music production classes and realized this was what I wanted to do after all.  

Pro Media Mag : Who or what inspired you to get into music industry?

Jesse Neo :

While taking the electronic music production classes, I was drawn into the work of David Guetta, Martin Garrix and Steve Aoki. I was also a big fan of Lady Gaga and Michael Jackson. After seeing how they have constantly reinvented their brands and sound, inspired me to do the same.

Pro Media Mag : Tell us about your recent release ?

Jesse Neo :

My latest, and first release is titled ‘Sex Magic’ that I wrote upon finishing my electronic music class. I was so eager and excited to put my new skill into use that I wrote the song in half an hour. It took about an hour to record and a week to produce. It is a song about spiritualism, sex and partying.

Pro Media Mag : What kind of response you have received from the release?

Jesse Neo :

The responses that I got after releasing ‘Sex Magic’ was surprising. Several big magazines picked up the song and wrote great reviews. Suddenly several radios were playing the song. Then record labels and YouTube channels began contacting me to write songs for them. So in a nutshell, the song boosted my career.

Pro Media Mag : What attracts you more, Working in studios or performing on stage? 

Jesse Neo :

I actually love working in the studio. It reminds me of a scientist working in a secret lab or something like that. It is just a magical moment when anything can happen, and you somehow have all the time in the world to get the sound and music right. Performing on stage is fun too, but the only bad thing is that it becomes over very soon.

Pro Media Mag : What’s the best part of being a music artist?

Jesse Neo :

The best part is putting everything that inspires me into a work of art. If I’m feeling happy one day, I can write a song that reflects by joy. If I’m moody, I can easily pen a song that goes with my sorrow. Unlike other jobs, being an artist gives me an emotional and intimacy attachment to my work.

Pro Media Mag : What kind of experience you had with Gemtracks?

Jesse Neo : 

When I finished my contract as a songwriter, I decided to not renew it and instead, start my online business where I could sell beats and instrumentals. I remember a week after the launch of Gemtracks, I immediately sold several tracks without even trying. Today, Gemtracks has grown into a marketplace where anyone can buy and sell original music.

So if this Gemtracks sound like something that interests you as an artist too, make sure you head over to buy beats.

Pro Media Mag : Are you working on any new project?

Jesse Neo :  

Besides growing Gemtracks, I have been composing several new tracks that I am hoping to record next year once the pandemic is over. I am also planning to record my first music video because it is something that I have wanted to do for a very long time.
