How Faith Shaped Bachi’s Music Journey
Hey family! Welcome to another episode of Da Fixx. In this special episode, DJ Focus and Dice Gamble sat down with the incredibly talented artist Bachi to explore his faith journey, his impressive accomplishments in the music industry, and what he wants his legacy to be.
A Leap of Faith: Bachi’s Spiritual and Musical Odyssey
Bachi’s story is one of unwavering faith and musical prowess. Growing up with a church background, he experienced a defining moment at the tender age of nine when he dedicated his life to God. This spiritual commitment has been the compass guiding him through the highs and lows of life.
From Track to Tracks: The Accidental Musician
Interestingly, Bachi’s foray into music was a happy accident. A college track runner, his path took an unexpected turn when his Xbox was stolen. This loss led him to dabble in music production using Pro Tools, a skill his mother had introduced to him. Despite initial hesitations about the music industry, his first song quickly gained local acclaim, opening doors to perform alongside renowned artists like Gucci Mane and Kodak during his college’s homecoming festivities.
The Business of Music: Education Meets Industry

His contributions have not gone unnoticed, with his work in movies, video games, and celebrity events making waves on social media.
Skateboarding and Sports Anthems: The Rhythms of Resilience
Beyond the recording studio, Bachi has a passion for skateboarding, a culture that has significantly influenced his life. He shared his excitement about the new skate park at his HBCU and the sense of community it fosters in Tallahassee. His sports anthems “Rise Up” and “No Fear” are testaments to his ability to create motivational music that resonates within the sports world.
“Gleeful”: The Anticipated Comeback
Looking forward, Bachi is gearing up to release his new project “Gleeful” after a hiatus marked by personal challenges and the pandemic’s impact. The album’s title is a reflection of his journey through loss and the rediscovery of joy amidst adversity. He remains committed to creating music with intention and purpose, aiming to serve and uplift others through his art.
The Legacy of Joy and Service
When asked about his legacy, Bachi hopes to be remembered as someone who embodies “gleeful” triumph over challenges. His dedication to giving and serving is evident not only in his music but also in his personal life.
