Where You From?
While visiting family in Toronto I received a message from Mr Phillips in Miami Mr. Philips . Mr. Phillips sent me on a quest to meet an artist named Joe Iiimpala who sings the vocals on his unreleased song called “Where You From”.
I caught up with Joe Iiimpala at the Dave and Busters in Vaughan, Ontario.
“We meet in the Lobby of a Studio in Los Angeles while we were Both recording in Different Rooms of the Facility. April, 2016, in LA” Mr. Phillips
Artist, Song Writer and Music Producer Joe Iiimpala creates rock, dancehall, reggaeton and house music.
Upon meeting Joe Iiimpala, I let him know that I was told by reggaeton song writer, artist and music producer Mr. Phillips that there’s an artist in Toronto that I needed to meet and that Phillips spoke highly of him.
When asked how he met meet Mr.Phillips? His response was:
“I was working on my own EP and ” Where You From” is a record that I had in mind to add to it. Phillips and I would have conversations about making a record together and that was the song. I made the beat, wrote the words and sent “Where You From ” to Mr. Phillips. Phillips really liked it and I originally had him as a feature but it kind of flipped I told him that I wanted him to use it for his new album Spanglish King! I am singing on the vocals and once I have my Ep ready, I will ask Mr.Phillips to make a guest appearance on it. The energy that we both have is great, we flow off of each other! The song has an Afro Beat, with Reggaeton, Hip Hop and R&B to give it a stir a nice whip as if I was cooking food by throwing in spices to have a commercial sound.” Joe Iiimpala
