His name is Emojii, spelled with two i’s… and a smile.
He recently proposed to his girlfriend using a song he wrote and created for her and then captured the entire proposal to feature in his brand new music video.
“November 5, 2016, a young woman stands on a pier in Edgewater, New Jersey. Upon discovering a mysterious video message, delivered to her phone moments ago, she opens the attachment. This is what she saw…”
This is how the video for “Can’t Stop Falling” commences.
We see Emojii prepare for the big moment as he goes through a wide range of “emojiions.” The upbeat and catchy song proves to be the perfect soundtrack for one of the most happiest (and nerve-racking) moments many of us get to experience at one point in our lives.
When the song finally comes to a climax, we see Emojii propose to his girlfriend – and she says YES!

Emojii – “Cant Stop Falling”
Tell us about “Cant Stop Falling”. How did you come up with this idea for this song? What Inspired you to make this?
Love was my inspiration. I always felt that a marriage proposal should be something personal, something from the heart. Being a musician there are few things as personal to me as music, so it only felt right to propose in way that had meaning. So I decided I was going to make a song for my now fiancé.
How did you begin producing electronic dance music?
This was actually my first EDM track. I’ve produced other music of different genres but for this song I chose to use this genre because I wanted a song that would be upbeat, spread joy and be something fun to dance to.
Do you have a favorite VST plugin or instrument to use?
Not really before this song I used the program Reason quite often. This song however I used a variety of different sounds that was already available at ANS studios, so I was able to experiment with something new. I can’t really say I have a favorite plug in or instrument since I tend to use whatever fits my ideas at the time… Although I do tend to start things off by checking out piano/keyboard sounds to lay a foundation, since I am kind of partial to piano.
What can we expect from you next year?
I’ll be doing some piano covers of popular songs so you can be on the look out for that. Also, I’m hoping that you, the people that listen to music and love music just as I do, spread this song around. I’m hoping to do more things not only with this song but also with more original music too. I can only do this with your support. Thank you for listening and to those that are a fan of the song thank you for the love.
