Premiere: “Nerviosa” by Andrekza
Born Andrekza Andreina in San Antonio de los Altos, Venezuela, her natural flair for poetry began in her childhood, later leading her to victory in various national and state-level competitions in her youth. Graduating high school at the tender age of 15, she set out to study in Toronto, Canada. That re-aligned her with music, and at 16, she began to write rap lyrics. As the first Latina signed to Steve Aoki’s new Latin imprint â€“ Dim Mak en Fuego, she completely identifies with the company. Existing creatively in music, she has one goal: “I hope to encourage people to express themselves through various art forms.” Today Galore premieres her single â€œNerviosa.â€
Living creatively is undeniably a courageous act. Pushing magical thinking, visualization, and music production, the current generation of creatives are well-rounded individuals who embrace a plethora of creative outletsâ€”simultaneously connecting to music, visual storytelling, and fashion. This is best exemplified in ANDREKZA’s evolution. With a definitive style that incorporates global aesthetics and sounds â€”combining the traditional dembow riddim found in dancehall and reggaeton with uplifting melodiesâ€”her music represents fun, eclectic rhythms, and harmonies.
“My overall essence comes from the knowledge I obtained outside of Venezuela and my experience as a child growing up in Venezuela.”
What was the creative process for the making of “Nerviosa“?
â€œThe creative process in making â€˜Nerviosaâ€™ was truly incredible. When we talk for the very first time about someone we like, we almost always deny the possibility to feelâ€¦when I like or am attracted to someone there are so many things I feel but I can only identify, at that very moment, that what I feel is nervousness. I have so much fun creating and sharing my ideas with my fans. PS. Iâ€™ve always dreamed of working with Galore as a creative director! Itâ€™s wild Iâ€™m being featured now for my work as an artist! Thank you for opening the doors for me in such a beautiful way. The illustrations I made on these pics I did with markers and I did them exclusively for Galore!â€ Andrekza
