With his single, “Sweetest Mistake,” out now, we took some time to hear more from ASPEN. Read below to learn more about ASPEN, the story behind his latest single, and what’s to come.

Hi ASPEN! Let’s start with how did you get your artist name?

It is just my first name. I have an interesting name, so I thought that it fit well as an artist name as well.

What city are you from and where are you based now?

I am originally from Tel Aviv, Israel, but I live in Miami now.

At what point in your life did you decide to pursue a career in music? How did you get started?

I went to Ultra a few years back, and I knew that I loved electronic music, but I didn’t realize how much I really loved it. Once I went there, I just had an overwhelming urge to pursue music myself.

Has your upbringing played a role in shaping who you are and defining your sound today? If so, how?

Absolutely, my upbringing has been instrumental in shaping both who I am and my sound. Being in Miami, a melting pot of cultures and musical styles, exposed me to a variety of sounds. This diverse musical environment instilled in me a love for blending different genres and influences, which is evident in tracks like ‘Sweetest Mistake.’ The emotional depth and eclectic beats of my music are reflections of the vibrance.

How would you describe your sound to readers who may not be familiar with you?

My sound can best be described as an emotive journey through soundscapes that blend electronic beats with soulful melodies. It’s about capturing both the highs and lows of the human experience, packaged within compelling rhythms that invite you to both reflect and dance. With each track, like ‘Sweetest Mistake,’ I aim to create a unique auditory experience that resonates on a personal level with listeners, drawing on elements from downtempo to more upbeat electronic vibes.

Do you have any hobbies outside of music? What do you do to stay creative?

Outside of music, I enjoy exploring the vibrant art scene here in Miami, from street art to gallery exhibitions. These visual experiences often inspire the textures and layers of my music. I also stay active with lifting, which not only keeps me physically fit, but also mentally sharp and creatively fluid. Engaging with different environments and activities helps me to maintain a fresh perspective and brings new ideas into my music production.

Who are some of your main musical influences?

Martin Garrix, Gryffin, and Tiesto.

What are some of your future music career goals?

Music for me has been about following my passion. So, as I progress in my career, I want to share my passion with others. For me, I just want my crowd to be engaged, and I want to make the lives of the people that listen to my music just a little bit better.

Now onto your release, ‘Sweetest Mistake.’ What inspired this song?

I was listening to ‘High on Life’ by Martin Garrix and just came to the conclusion that I really want to make a song like that. I love the message and the euphoric feeling that the song creates, and I wanted to recreate that.

What is ‘Sweetest Mistake’ about in your own words?

‘Sweetest Mistake’ is a captivating blend of introspective lyrics and dynamic melodies. Featuring the compelling contributions of JWild, this track explores the bittersweet journey of embracing imperfections and finding beauty in unexpected turns.

How did the collaboration with JWild come about?

We have some mutual friends, and I just DMed him on Instagram because I listened to some of his stuff and really liked his voice.

What message do you hope fans take away from your music and from ‘Sweetest Mistake?’

Go find love and put yourself out there. You will get hurt in life, but all of those experiences build you up as a person and make you into who you are.

What’s one of the proudest moments of your music career so far?

I played for a crowd of almost 10,000 people in a basketball arena with Lil Jon. Everyone really enjoyed the set, and I was just so happy that I could share the stuff that I was working on with all these other people.

What would you say are the greatest lessons that you’ve learned so far?

You have to be patient. In this industry you have to pay your dues, and you have to be patient in terms of your growth. Also, in life as a whole, you have to be patient in terms of your career growth. There is no such thing as instant success.

What’s next for you? Are you working on any upcoming projects, or do you have any upcoming shows that we should be on the lookout for?

I am going to continue grinding and releasing music. I have been working really hard, and I have a ton of projects that I am waiting to roll out. I’m excited for everyone to hear them. I also have a headline show on June 15th at Hyde in the SLS in South Beach.

    Hold onto your headphones, because Lonely Leonard is here to shake up your playlists with his electrifying debut album, ‘BLOCKBUSTER’! This Phoenix-based rapper isn’t just any artist—he’s a former porn director turned hip-hop sensation, bringing his wild, unconventional experiences straight to your ears.

    ‘BLOCKBUSTER’ is a 12-track rollercoaster ride through the realms of drill, EDM, and jersey club. Leonard pulls out all the stops, delivering catchy hooks and provocative raps that are guaranteed to get stuck in your head. He describes the album as “like watching a 3D movie without the glasses on”—a trippy, vibrant mix of genres and themes that paints a vivid picture of the ups and downs of fame.

    Leading the charge is “I Did It”, an anthem for New Jersey that showcases Leonard’s swagger and his ability to slay a jersey club beat. Inspired by legends like Eminem, BandmanRill, and Travis Scott, Leonard mixes their powerful vibes with his own unique style. The result? A banger that’s impossible to ignore.

    But wait, there’s more! the artist isn’t just making music; he’s making a difference. A portion of the profits from his merchandise sales will be donated to the AZ Access to Abortion Fund, proving that he’s got a big heart to match his big talent.

    Lonely Leonard’s journey is just as impressive as his music. He records with Killroy, the mastermind behind tracks for Snoop Dogg, and gets engineering help from Fritzthaproducer, known for working with Pop Smoke. His music has already caught the attention of big names like Ebro from Apple Music and Rick Ross, setting the stage for Leonard’s meteoric rise.

    So, plug in, turn up the volume, and let Lonely Leonard take you on a wild ride through his mind. This is one blockbuster you won’t want to miss!
