Interview with Wonderland:
Where did it all begin with you?
I started filming bits bobs around college with the classic VHS Cam, then you can pretty much say my life started to change rapidly from there. I began to collaborate with amazing artists, met Matthew Stone and here I am now: a musician.
You’re a very visual artist. Do you prefer creating the vision or executing it?
Well, I like both. The idea of creating a concept and placing it into realisation gets me buzzing.
When did you first start writing and recording?
Music has always been a part of me. It’s in my blood. My dad used to be apart of a band in Ghana, colourblocked suits and all sorts. So I was basically digesting his music and the music around me. I started taking music seriously 2 years ago and it has been great journey ever since.
You’ve collaborated with a tonne of established acts. Give us a rundown of the best.
I’ve collaborated with the likes of Darq E Freaker, Venus X, Zebra Katz on visual projects. Darq E Freaker is my homeboy and i’m loving what he is doing in the UK at the minute. I really enjoyed working with Venus X too, she’s so cool and so Harlem, it was a great experience. In all everyone I’ve worked with have been awesome. Everything is memorable.
Tell us about your work with Mykki Blanco.
He’s so cool, man. I got invited to cameo in two of his music videos that took place in UK. We’ve been homies from then on. I love how different and courageous he is.
