Future Relic

Music is the expression of the soul; a melody that relieves one off of their melancholies.

Future Relic has some beliefs along the lines that compelled him to follow his heart and liberate his spirit through the freeing tunes of music. Born, raised and residing in San Antonio, Texas, this artist raps to the beats of his hearts which infusions in the darker genre of R&B. Future Relic focuses on instilling the elements of consciousness and fulfillment in his music to make it an exalted experience for his listeners.

Ever since childhood, Relic was attracted to the chords and strums. Soon enough, he discovered his innate aesthetics for music and voyaged out to finding his own identity in the vast ocean of melodies. So far, Future Relic has been told about touching the hearts of his fans and inspiring them to do something better and productive with their lives which is absolutely priceless for him.

Relic makes sure to leave his audiences touched and tazed with his meaningful lyrics and energizing, up-beat performances. One such stellar performance was his opening act for Paul Wall on 6th Street in Austin, TX where he left the crowd wild and dazed. More often than not, his sound has been compared to that of Drake, Tech N9ne, and Quavo. But Relic has vibes of his own. He has opened stages for GT Garza, Lil Flip, Paul Wall, Big Mike, and Corey Gunz. With the release of his latest single’s video, ‘In Motion’ and his mix-tape album called, ‘Track Casualties,’ he has certainly gained a new surge of confidence and believes that his career is leading him in the right direction. As of now, he is entirely focused on recording new music and promoting his upcoming album, ‘Conscience.’

Interview by Tim Brown

Have you been in competitions? Any prizes? 
I have been in plenty competitions. I performed for a XXL Slot and won second. I traveled to San Diego and Las Vegas for Coast to Coast and placed top three in both city’s. I’ve had competition shows is Houston, Austin and Tyler, Texas where I placed top two in all three. It’s safe to say I’m no stranger to performing!

Do you perform in public? Describe those occasions? Concerts, radio, TV
Yes, I have performed all over the nation. I’ve hit the stage in ATL three times. I have performed in Little Rock, Arkansas, San Diego, California, Las Vegas, Nevada and all over the state of Texas; each where the crowd showed mad love to my music! I have done radio interviews with “Highly Unique Radio” based out of Atlanta, “Culture News Radio” on iHeartRadio and “Street Dreamz Radio” out of San Antonio TX. I have opened up for Cory Guns in Austin, TX for SXSW. I opened up for Paul Wall in Austin as well and competed for a opening slot for Kid Ink in Atlanta.

Let’s Talk about your music and your last work…
I have plenty of music out on every platform. My latest release was a free 5 track EP. Entitled “KD”. You can find the project on datpiff.com. Months before that I dropped my most impactful project entitled “Track Casualties”, a nine track EP that was released on all major platforms such as Tidal, Apple Music, Google Play, Spotify and much more. I also have older projects on soundcloud.com and youtube.com. You can also go to YouTube and watch my new music vids.

How do you feel about the internet in the music business?
It has its good and bad but ultimately for me it’s watering down the game. As you can see people are blowing up and it has nothing to do with music and I don’t think that’s a good thing. Back in the day there was a lot more love put into the craft and now some culture vulture could get clout from something ridiculous and then be like how am I gonna keep my following? Oh I got it, I’ll release a dumb song about drugs because that’s what’s the kids like and I’ll see how that goes.. To me it just seems like people abuse their influence with Hip Hop in particular, now more than ever.

What are the plans for the future?
Right now I’m working on dropping a lot of vids to my new project “Broken Records”. I have this new track I just released called “Trust the Process”, with a video dropping to it really soon. This track is getting love in the clubs.

How has your music evolved since you first began playing music? 
I have gotten a lot better at pin-pointing my songs construction such as ad-libs, hooks and vocals.

Could you briefly describe the music-making process?
It’s hard to describe. It’s really the instrumental. Sometimes the song sounds best when you go straight into rapping and other times starting the song with a hook is vital. I use different formulas all the time.

Where are you from? 
I’m from North East San Antonio Texas.

Is there a team or label that u represent? Or are you just solo?
I rep KBS Records go check us out on kbs-records.com

Are there any fellow teammates you would like to acknowledge at this time?
Yes my dawg and business partner Tyni Toon, a very talented artist from the city of San Antonio. I encourage everyone to check him out, he has music available on all major platforms. He is always making moves and lots of noise. He just had his first headlined show of the year and it went pretty good. He has a new mixtape coming soon entitled “Ventilation”. Be on the look out for his new singles “Ice Cube” featuring myself, Future Relic, and “Attention”, available on Spotify, Apple Music, etc. Check out his new video for single “Opposite” on YouTube.
