Lavish lofi tunes
WallyPDF, otherwise known as Wally Sajimi, forms a completely idysocranic musical project. Originally from New Jersey, he now resides across New York, Los Angeles, and Portugal, bringing a complexion of lavish lofi tunes to life in an extraordinarily unique way.
Venturing into the realm of artificial intelligence art back in 2019, WallyPDF began his exploration into the connection between music and technology, lessening the interaction established by humans, and increasing the unification that AI could create within his musical sphere. He explains,
“I wanted to fuse and integrate technology with music creation. There’s a lack of experimentation between music creation and technology sometimes. I think people think you need 95% of human interaction to make music, but sometimes you don’t. In the world we live in now, technology always helps more than it hurts.”
With an ability to code 98% of the workload, WallyPDF covered everything from production, through to art, without even taking to the booth. Garnering inspiration from the sun-swept beaches of Praia Nova in Portugal, his latest tune, “babyx3” proves that an amalgamation of music and tech can lead to extraordinary things. Lavishing lofi tones sweep across his unique soundscape. Paired with blissful beats with tantalizing tones of calmness and electronica, “babyx3” grows into a mellow soundtrack that would find a home in a sun-stoked coffee house or the earbuds of a budding scholar.
With musical influences varying from Jay-Z to Brandy, WallyPDF proves there are truly no limits to his creativity. His soothing lofi tones unite in a complexion of electronically determined rhythms, integrating AI’s stake in an ever-evolving musical arena.
WallyPDF’s musical endeavours shine brightly. Having recently signed with Downtown Music, he continues to develop exponentially as an artist. With over 300,000 monthly listeners and streaming numbers hitting the millions, he’s becoming a frontier for technology-immersed music. In 2021, he made the Forbes 30 Under 30 Class of 2021 and has also founded several companies, including Nietzsche Labs and an NFT company, Minti. Alongside his work in music, he also helps with Creative Direction for Azuki and is co-founder of the Jewellery company Her Children, hitting worldwide stores with Euphoria’s finest Angus Cloud as the face of the brand.
