Interview: Getting to know Hansaa

Hansaa recently released a brand new single, Primavera. We asked him to tell us about himself:

I am Hansaa (AKA) Vinay. I’m 22. I’m a scorpio. I’m passionate, meticulous, secretive, obsessive and a good lover. I look up to Eric Andre. My lucky number is 4. I like beer, home-cooked meals and wearing winter clothes throughout the year and I don’t think Sophie Monk is that cute.

‘Primavera’ is a record co produced with LA-based production duo soso featuring vocals from LA RnB artist A.CHAL. In a nutshell it is about hoping to connect back with a girl after a long time of being apart but realising that there is no spark left. I produced it with soso in LA.

Home is a weird hybrid of Los Angeles, Florida and Sydney. I was born in New Zealand. I grew up and went to high school in Sydney. Moved to Florida to pursue a double degree at the University of Miami, then quit college to go to music school in California. I’m thinking about finishing my degree as I have a year left but it’s just on the cards.

I spend too much time writing demos then trashing them. Nothing is perfect for me.

I’ve never kissed a girl. Jk.

It might surprise people to learn that I smoked weed with the Weeknds cousin on the 4th of July in Santa Barbara. Really cool dude.

In 2018, I hope to continue to write really amazing records and collaborate with talented artists.
