Extended Play is a four-part video series, created by J&K Present, showing off some of the amazing musical talent that El Paso has been cultivating.

Extended Play’s second episode premiers Monday. The episode features El Paso R&B singer Miles Angel, whose smooth voice and trap-influenced beats can be heard on his debut album, “No Apologies,” available on Apple Music and Spotify. The Del Valle graduate is currently preparing a new album, “Seasons,” set to be released in May.

Every other week, you can check out a video interview with one of the four acts being showcased, including singer-songwriter Wildsters, rapper Young Deluxe and indie band Fat Camp. The series culminates with an exclusive, invite-only showcase with performances by all four artists on May 25 at the El Paso Museum of Art.

MILES ANGEL

Miles Angel

Q: What inspired you to start making music and at what age did you begin?

I started making music when I was like 12, and once I began writing my own songs, I just knew that that’s what I wanted to do with my life. You just don’t see yourself doing something else once you find your true passion.

Q: Who would be your dream collaboration?

My dream collaboration would have to be J. Cole, Bryson Tiller or PARTYNEXTDOOR. You can actually hear their musical influence on my lyrics and musical theory in my compositions.

Q: What do you want El Pasoans to know about you as an artist?

If there’s anything I would want my fellow El Pasoans to know about me, it’s that I am aware and I am proud of our culture, and I consistently rep it anyway and anytime I am given the opportunity to do so. There’s really nowhere I’d rather be than El Paso.

Q: What’s your favorite thing about performing in El Paso?

My favorite thing about performing in El Paso is obvious: It’s my home, and I just want to make my city proud. I don’t think there’s a greater feeling to me than to see your people sing along to what you wrote in a dark room when no one was listening.

Q: What are the challenges of being an artist from El Paso?

Convincing your own city to support you is perhaps the biggest challenge of being an artist from El Paso. It took me forever for people in my city to believe in me, and even though I wished my people started supporting me earlier, it forced me to make better music.
