Phuture: Let’s take a stroll through the creation of ‘Cry’. Tell us what inspirations were behind this track & any intentions you have or had with it.
Paul Point: So cry it was basically based off of several tracks really. First one came off of medasin track which I’m a big fan of so I based off of him and also kind of Went around the same idea as my last track anything. It was fun to make and every time I would get something down I would go back and look at the banner of phuture seeing if it would fit the art. My intentions were basically for the track to be unique and based off a style I kinda created or sound I created.
Phuture: If your music was a fruit, what fruit would it be?
Paul Point: I think if my music was a fruit it would be an orange haha because every time you would bite into orange it would be sweet and make you happy. So Every time you would click on my track it would be sweet and happy.
