Last Month, Mitchi3 stopped by the Medium/Genius office to give a sneak peak of his soon-to-be released debut Album, Feelings ,
A year earlier, the once small Dutch Producer would smoothly secure a cosign from Atlantic Records, after releasing his debut song Gunna Be Rich
“When he heard ‘Gunna Be Rich,’ he said he usually doesn’t always f–k with when people remix his songs, but he said some remixes made about the song are actually good. Mitchi3 (Mitchell van Swol) says about how the collab formed (He met IsaiReiziger Backstage at Parkpop Netherlands and later went to the studio)
When making the decision to name his project Feelings, Mitchi3 is able to comfortably back up his bold title — and his numbers don’t lie. The project is expected to feature on to debut on the billboard top 500, while its lead single, “Gunna Be Rich” featuring IsaiReiziger, has already garnered over 100.000 streams on Spotify alone since its release in June 2022.
By the age of 16, Mitchi3 also already has 6 silver records (“Gunna Be Rich”), and he’s about to hit the road for his international tour next June-July. He recently took a moment to reflect on where he is currently at in his journey right now, bringing him back to his first moment of inspiration to become a Producer: listening to Kanye Wests discography. he writes in a tweet. “I was 10 listening to every word. Shit crazy to think about where I’m at now!”
To this day, Mitchi3 refers to Kanye West as one of his biggest inspirations. “I’m basically at that point in my career, where he started at that time,” he says. “Thinking about that mixtape brings back memories of when I was a kid and thinking about ‘Oh I want to do this, I want to do what he’s doing.’ I’m trying to be the biggest out here.”
As stated in his tweet, Mitchi3 started delving into Hip-Hop at the age of 12, which is not far from the age of some of his most dedicated fans. “Some shows are ages 16 and up, so there’d be like 15-year-old girls just sitting outside the shows for hours,” he says. At the beginning of his career, he didn’t predict he would have such a young fanbase, but now sees this reality as an opportunity to instill inspiration. “I think about it sometimes, about how my fans are really that young, so I should show them positive shit.”
We asked him who the featured artists would be and he replied with a great lineup of artists (Lil Mosey, Trve, Lil Tjay, Wix Patton, Anyta and many more artists)
When we asked about why he made this album and who its made for he answered,
“ I met this girl a couple weeks ago and I knew she was special straight away. I wanted to do something with a Romantic/Kanye West vibe type album anyways. But when she came in my life I felt different she made me have a different type of energy, Making me way happier and because of her I actually wanted to continue the Album”
When we asked him for more information about that certain girl he said he didn’t want to give further information about her.
He did say this in a following interview
“Once I met her I knew she had a different vibe around her she makes me happy and makes me smile. Im grateful for meeting her and I hope she will continue to stay with me because I love the energy and the vibe she gives me I love her for her”
Some words of his friends and fans:
“Met this legend when we were born and never dissapeared in his life since then. I’ll always support him and ill be there for him in good and hard times. – Keep pushing and work harder to keep the dream alive” – (Kayn/Friend)

Despite Mitchi3 his career exponentially expanding, he rarely ever loses his cool and even says he hardly experiences growing pains. From being booked for festivals all across the nation, to putting up monstrous streaming numbers, Mitchi3 remains calm and collected through the wild ride thanks to his firm belief he deserves everything he has achieved so far. “I’ve worked for this. Everything so far has been going smooth,” he calmly concludes. “I definitely feel like I was ready for all of this.”
