When you think of empowering female artists that are taking over the EDM scene today, you think WHIPPED CREAM. After years of continuous hard work, Caroline got her big break performing at Shambhala in 2015. This pivotal milestone was made up of many stepping stones filled with highs and lows and determination. We sat down with WHIPPED CREAM to talk new music, new projects, live performances, and staying true to yourself.
It is very obvious you are doing something you are meant to be doing, simply shown by the way you can captivate an audience and have them embody your energy while on stage. What would you say was the “AHA” moment where you knew this is what you were supposed to be doing and had to go for it?
Thank you, I appreciate that you feel this way. I had the moment about 6 years ago when I attended my first music festival. I was at Active Child’s set at the Gorge in Washington. It changed my life. The whole festival honestly was the first time I felt accepted in my life. I wanted to try to make others feel how I felt there; for the rest of my life. When I got back home I took my savings and got what I needed to learn.
What has been the most recent “AHA” moment you’ve had that proved you are accomplishing what you’ve set out to do?
Honestly having a huge label like Atlantic Records behind my music is extremely humbling. It really hit me a few weeks ago. All of my favorite artists are on Atlantic, that’s really special to me.
What have been some of the up’s and down’s of the journey to get to where you are? what’s been your biggest lesson?
That my mental health and physical health need to come first. Without that I have nothing.
With many artists looking up to you, what advice would you give to them?
Man, that is an honor to me. The biggest advice I can give them is don’t give up. Many ups and many more downs!!!! Every single ‘no’ you get is bringing you closer to the right ‘yes’. I’m so happy and grateful for every failure and every ‘no’ because it taught me so much about myself. A ‘no’ really means nothing other than how can I get around this? What can I learn from this? How do I become better? I have failed hundreds of times man. Just don’t let it get you down for long, it’s normal to fail on the way to success.
Which artists have influenced you the most?
I would say Tyler the Creator, James Blake, Frank Ocean, Sevdaliza, Active Child, Boys Noize, Gesaffelstein, Skrillex, Tupac and Andre 3000.
With that being said, who would be your dream collaboration?
Sevdaliza, Skrillex, Tyler the Creator, James Blake, Travis Scott, A$AP Ferg, A$AP Rocky, Rich Brian, Kanye West.
If there is anything your fans should take away from listening to your music or attending a show, what would you want it to be?
I fought really hard to remain myself and you will have to as well, but I didn’t come all this way to not be myself. My promise as long I’m here, is I’ll be undeniably myself. One thing I hope you take away from my art, is that you can be anything you want and that the power of love and hard work triumphs anything…if I can do it so can you.
Any new projects on the horizon that we should keep an eye out for?
I have another record dropping in a few weeks, and a very very special visual project coming, ima start making mini movies.
If you haven’t had the chance to experience the undisputed queen of bass live, now is your chance. WHIPPED CREAM will be bringing her “Bad For Me” Tour to Celebrities Nightclub on Saturday, December 1st, with special guests Cozway, Juelz, and Zennon Beatz. Tickets available below.
