Tyler ICU tells Apple Music about Chasing the Unforgettable

What can do we that’s surprising, that’s gonna be something that people remember forever? That’s always something I’ve been chasing. I don’t have to have a lot of songs in an album that people are going to say “OK, this what what what,” so I just want that one specific moment of a song that will always catch you. It’s things like that, that’s what I chase. I chase unforgettable, that’s what it’s like. Even just the lyrics, they’re always repetitive so it’s easy to catch on. It’s easier for them to stay within you.

Tyler ICU tells Apple Music about Making Music in Tembisa

Nandi: You come from the east of Johannesburg in a place called Tembisa, which is a hood that for some reason… There’s something in Tembisa, man, I can’t put my finger on it, but it produces some of the best artists in the continent and arguably the world. What is it about Tembisa? Is it the vibe? The ambience? Because you guys are killing it there.

Tyler: It has always been about the vibe, like how the streets move. Everybody there, they just love going out and they love the music that Tembisa people produce. It’s actually crazy the support we get from that hood, it’s very normal.
