I recently caught up with Paul van der Walt who is behind Watermark High to find out more about his latest 5-track EP, ‘For Good’ and what his plans in the industry are.
Who are your musical influences?
I’d say my three main music influences at the moment are Lapalux, Prefuse 73 and Bonobo.
How would you describe your sound?
On a very basic level I guess you could say it’s a mixture of instrumental hip-hop and experimental electronica.
How do you feel your sound has progressed with each EP release?
I think I’ve just been building on the foundations set by my previous work. The latest EP is a progression and just a more refined sound I think.
What were the main influences behind ‘For Good’?
I guess I just wanted to refine my existing sound as mentioned earlier, but to also try some new things.
What would you like to achieve in the music industry?
Just to be able to connect with people through my music and to offer them something different.
Last but not least, what is next for you?
I’m already working on some new music and planning my next release. I’m also busy working on a new live set. I’m hoping to be out and playing again from around July/August this year.
