Who is Imanbek Zeikenov?
Imanbek Zeikenov is 19 years old. The guy lives in Aksu with his family, works as a signalman on the railway, and ... creates tracks on his laptop!
“... I remember, I just sat at home and listened to music on VK. St. John's "Roses" came on and I wanted to experiment with it! Creating a remix took me no more than two hours ... I published my "masterpiece" on the wall in VK, my friends appreciated it, and that's it. I could not even think of any fame ... Only a few months later someone advised me to publish the work in one group, which had something like a million subscribers. Many appreciated my remix, and soon producers of labels began to approach me with offers to cooperate! It was cool and unexpected… I was shocked!” Imanbek shared with correspondents.
In the end, the guy chose the Russian label Effective records! The brand is now selling the viral remix of "Roses" on popular platforms like Apple Music, Google Play Music, Spotify, BOOM...
Release and success
The official release was submitted in agreement with the author of the original. Of course, Imanbek is not yet personally acquainted with Saint John:
“... We do not know each other personally, but I wrote to him. True, he has not yet answered ... "
“... The remix entered the Top Charts after some four months, since I recorded it! I didn’t expect this… I just did what I liked and decided to share my work with other listeners!” - said the young remixer of house music.
Of course, Imanbek gets a good fee from sales of the remix on music platforms! What amount or percentage is in question - the guy does not voice. The terms of the contract do not allow...
“Will these funds be enough to leave the main job? I think yes. But I'm not going to do it - I can't do it. As for my own studio, I don't need it. At least now. I like to record music at home, in headphones, on a very ordinary laptop ... As you can see, it turns out very well!” Imanbek answered.
"Imanbek remix" on "Roses" breaks all records! #2 in Shazam Russia, #7 in Shazam World, #6 on the Yandex Music Chart, #10 in the Apple Music Russia Top 100… Less than a year after its release, the remix reached the Billboard Hot 100, ranking #39! In the US, the track was listened to more than "Godzilla" by Eminem, or "Myron" by Lil Uzi and "Yummy" by Justin Bieber.
In this situation, the most interesting thing to watch is Saint John! Just imagine: a successful rapper, with concerts and a million-strong army of fans, who successfully recorded the soundtrack for The Lion King with the beauty Beyonce ... And then his track is remixed by an ordinary 19-year-old guy from Kazakhstan, who instantly conquers the world's Top Charts!
Well, Imanbek only wants to be sincerely glad: in fact, he managed to realize the wildest dream of thousands of Russian musicians - to conquer the hearts of the West, knocking out the doors to the most prestigious chart in the world!
