Adrian 10z is a 23 year old R&B artist born and raised in Toronto. The youngin’ has been featured on tracks with Dom Alli (Signals ft Pesto) and T.yyy (>$ aka More Than Money ft Nicole Ayala), both of which are R&B-influenced tracks to get down to.

Simple but meaningful lyrics jump out over the smooth and catchy beat: “Any day of, the week / I know I, can / Call on, my / Lady.” Adrian expands: “This represents the importance of being with a woman you can trust and depend on. Finding the right woman isn’t easy but, when you do, it’s important to value her.” A-men, babe!

“Mixed It Right” came to be, when friend and producer Tyler Davis played the beat for Adrian. He was immediately taken by thoughts: “A woman I hold dear instantly came to mind. [And then] the first line in the hook came [to me], “Ah bout you, all ah about you.” The rest started to roll from there, creating a track that is at face value about one woman, but when listened twice over, holds images for deeper meaning. “This track is about someone’s vices. With 24 hours in a day, we all shift our focus a few times, [specially] depending on [our] location. The perspective of the song makes you think it’s only about a woman but, the “woman” also symbolizes other vices, [like] alcohol, money, and drugs.”

And then there’s that line, “Mixed it right / I feel like a kid chasing a kite.” Adrian shares this is about “being high and feeling free. I imagine that kids are always happy chasing a kite, running through a park.” The song does have a dream-like feel that is reminiscent of childhood memories.

“My creative process? I’m not good at communication but, I’m working on it. With music, it’s different. I just let myself speak. My brain turns off and whatever I feel like in that exact moment is the direction I take the song.”

Keep your eyes out for this kid as he bangs out more tracks, and plans for his take-over in 2019.
