There are many diverse ways that someone can nourish every aspect of their lives – from their relationships to their emotional well-being to their creative nature.
There is always a way to “nourish every you” when putting yourself in the spotlight, especially if you work in the music industry where anxiety can sometimes get the best of you. In partnership with vitaminwater, that sentiment is taken to a whole new level with music creators, also known as “bedroom producers,” as they develop their sound from the comfort of their own home studios.
That’s where Latine Miami-based DJ and producer Coffintexts currently finds herself. She’s working to create the next big beats from her home and has always had an inspiring outlook on her music and life.
For Coffintexts, working from home allows her to tap into something special in her creative process and push the limits of what she can do as an artist. During an interview, she spoke about the personal space where she makes music and how her work as a music producer replenishes her creative spirit.
“The best thing about working from home is just to really be in your element and the headspace that you are in that day,” Coffintexts says.
Coffintext was inspired to be a musician by her parents. Her mother toured as a musician through Lima, Peru, and her dad played the drums.
“[My parents] are just very passionate about music,” she said. “So, that’s what really brought me closer to [it].”
When she first started her career, Coffintexts says she was interested in “R&B and indie-type stuff.” Her tastes evolved, however, when she realized the kinds of venues that she wanted to hear her music playing in. “I kind of want to make music to be played in the clubs,” she said.
As she thinks about the future, Coffintexts can already envision what her first EP will look like and what its theme will be . She describes it as “trippy and cinematic.” She wants her work to feel effortless when audiences hear it.
“I’m not going to try to force myself to put out a record every three weeks,” she said. “I like to take my time and put together a cohesive project, so that I feel good about it. If I’m not doing that, and it’s not making me feel like I have a natural rhythm, then it’s not gonna work.”
It’s in her home studio where Coffintexts can use her “natural rhythm” with ease since being alone is something she’s used to. She grew up an only child, so staying isolated doesn’t bother her. In fact, she quite likes it.
“Being in the studio, I feel safe, and I feel good,” she said. “I do get nervous when there’s a bunch of people just staring at me DJing. I try to calm myself down and go back out there again.”
When she feels a bit anxious, Coffintexts can take a step back and count on her talent and versatility to get her through those tough moments.
Through her career, Coffintexts says she has been described by other DJs as someone who is “fearless” and has “no boundaries.” She hopes to continue to expand her skills, reach new audiences and encourage others to overcome their fears.
“I’m not afraid to push,” she said. “I just want to inspire people to not be afraid to explore.”
