Surfing The Stratosphere: Queens, NY-based Elevated Focusion breathtakingly boosts our mindsets forever on brilliant interview

Watching from below and moving on from Jonny Rythmns and keeping it rather experimental all the way, Elevated Focusion flows into our lives and illuminates a ray of hope for us all. We find out more in an exclusive interview that can’t be ignored with streetwear added in to make things extra intriguing.

Llewelyn: We appreciate you joining us Elevated Focusion. Firstly, we love your artist name. Where did it come from and what is the story behind it?

Elevated Focusion: Elevated Focusion is the moment where an idea and the execution come together. Counter culture. not being complacent. trying to break the mold. going against the grain

Llewelyn: Please tell us more about your debut album and release of the clothing line?

Elevated Focusion: The self-titled debut album is a genre-bending album in June 2023 that will combine his love for New York culture and all genres of music. It’s a mixed bag from of all my musical and cultural influences as well as life experiences.

Growing up in New York in the 90s, I was a huge fan of the creativity in the graffiti characters in NYC street fashion. The body art in 80s/90s horror always captivated me as well. In addition, I grew up watching trippy cartoons like The Ren & Stimpy Show and Duckman. I love science fiction, and tatoo art always fascinated me. With the Elevated Focusion clothing line, I really wanted to take all of my childhood influences and combine them with the creativity of NYC graffiti and streetwear fashion.

Llewelyn: Jonny Rythmns. That was your artist name before. Please detail the change and what made you rebrand?

Elevated Focusion: I used the name Jonny Rythmns when I made instrumental music on my synthesizer keyboard. All of this music was created during 2001-2004. It is 100% instrumental music made up of hip-hop beats, music for video games, trippy music, concept albums, new age music, experimental music, sci-fi soundtrack, and space music.

In 2022, during quarantine, I decided to release all my old music under the name Jonny Rythmns. The first Jonny Rythmns’ release was my most experimental album called Elevated Focusion.

I chose Elevated Focusion to be my name going forward as it represents who I want to be as an artist, whether in experimental electronic music or as a streetwear clothing brand. My goal with the Elevated Focusion brand is to unite my love for all different genres and art styles through eclectic music and alternative fashion in collaboration with various artists.

Llewelyn: Is there a particular series you’d like to be in or perhaps a movie franchise?

Elevated Focusion: I would love to make music for any kind of movie or TV. But I personally love Horror, Drama, and Sci Fi.

Llewelyn: Experimental electronic music is your game. Why do you love it so much and how did you get into it? Was it through a live show or just exploring different genres?

Elevated Focusion: I really do love every genre of music and I like to make people dance. I’m also a bit of a weirdo. Experimental electronic music just called to me I guess.

Llewelyn: How would you describe your music to someone who’d just arrived from another galaxy?

Elevated Focusion: The Elevated Focusion album is a soundtrack to my life. It is everything I have felt emotionally and experienced physically. It is my life. It is my mind. And it is New York as seen through my eyes.

Llewelyn: Queens, NY. What’s it like there? Some really famous artists are from your home town. Is the music culture alive and kicking like you want it to be?

Elevated Focusion: Queens is the most culturally diverse place in the world. From people to sounds to food and beyond. There is also a mix of darkness, danger, and depression which has heavily influenced my lyrics on the album.

Llewelyn: Lastly, who do you make music for and who inspires you every day?

Elevated Focusion: This is a passion project for me so I make music in whatever way I feel inspired. A lot of love goes into every song. I created this project to reach open-minded people who are looking for something different.

In My Zone: Keylo Jsr is the triple threat on the money-maker ‘Zon3’

He wishes that she was right next to him right now but knows that the trust is there so they can kiss through the phone, as the rejuvenated Keylo Jsr gets into the right mindset to make that ‘Zon3‘.

Keylo Jsr is a driven indie rapper based in Greenville, South Carolina. The Queens, New York-born artist makes that enlightened music as he was behind bars for over five years, so had plenty of time to work out what he wanted from life. Long-term success is what he is after – as he drops proven bars that slam down with much-appeal – to have you inspired by his true redemption story.

This is the type of track that is rapped confidently with so much certain conviction, as he has your ears locked into to a destination of peace and ever-lasting comfort that so many fail to see with their small-minded minds.

He knows that she believes in him and vice-versa, his mind is relaxed and their love is so real. This is the message of putting faith into those caring eyes that are interwoven so naturally, no matter how far your beating hearts are from each other.

Zon3‘ from the highly motivated and excuse-less South Carolina RnB/hip-hop artist Keylo Jsr, is a riveting display from an artist on a mission to let his girl know, that he is there for her no matter what. He refuses to let the distance get to him – as he flows with such a skilled ambiance – which has you overwhelmed at times by his smooth quality.

This is that get-into-the-vibe music which shows us a skilled emcee who has only used his past failures to enhance his life, not the opposite. Music heals all wounds after all.

Double It Up: avi abrams, V Wescott and Marcus stay on point with the winners anthem ‘Living It Up’

Released off the recent well-received eight-track album called ‘A Night Out‘, avi abrams, V Wescott and Marcus rev up the engine hard and head quickly to the top of the clouds above in style with ‘Living It Up‘.

avi abrams, V Wescott and Marcus storm into our lives New York City-style, with a barrage of thumping-down-the door beats that wakes you up real fast, which are also packed full Christmas-stocking-stretched with some confident bars that catches your attention.

Avi Abrams has been producing music for over ten years, channeling both popular and alternative inspirations.” – avi abrams

As a Queens native, Wescott’s sound is certainly a product of his surroundings, but his home is on the stage.” – V Wescott

New Jersey birthed an artist with a keen sense of empathy, felt through his melodic intention. Marcus holds no bars when it comes to his work.” – Marcus

This is the story of smartly brushing away the doubts with a cheeky brush, as you know you need to lose some former friends along the way too. When you start winning – you should always be careful of those who don’t clap for you – as they instead greedily try work out how to bring you down, instead of joining you in the major leagues.

Living It Up‘ from New York artists avi abrams, V Wescott and Marcus, is a bass-heavy statement of intent. They make it known that they are tired of closed-minded fools bringing them down, as they reach for the top and are only taking the self-aware with them. This is an anthem to play when you need motivation to never give up – as your dreams are out there – if you are willing to put the work in.
