To see everybody have a great time, leave their stress and worries at the door and get down

If it’s an old school hip hop night DMX ruff ryders anthem. If it’s an r&b situation destiny’s child like bugg a boo or usher Yeahhhh or what’s love or ghetto romance.

Moné - 'The God Complex 2: The Conquest of Monesa Musa' Interview

Amanda Giordano

Why did you make this album?

I made this album to God up everyone who is ready to step into their excellence. It is only then change things. 

What inspired the title 'The God Complex 2: The Conquest of Monesa Musa'?

The God Complex album, the one prior to this was more of a coming of age album driven by the need to change a society that existed prior to us. The God Complex 2 is more of a guide to inner peace, and self awareness from our most basic needs to self actualization. The conquest of Monesa Musa is the rich spiritual connection that I have with the universe. The goal is to give these jewels bestowed upon me of a greater understanding to win the hearts of listeners with purpose and intent to be the best version of themselves to change the world. 

If you could do remix to one song on the album and anyone as your guest feature, what song what it would be and who would you have on it?

J. Cole on Tek Care would be dope. 

Who helped make this album what it is? Writers, Producers, Muses, Support System, Etc

There are 2 producers on the album @saintbeliev3 on 'Wishing' and @apmg_kimogod made all the rest. It took ten hours to complete the beats and recording for this album in an insane music session that should've been videotaped lol

What is your favorite track?

My fave track to perform is 'Don't Call the PoPo Ho' but my fave track to listen to I can't decide, they all mean something different to me and are equally fire in their own way. 


What is your goal as an artist?

My goal is to make people think about what we should be instead of accepting what is just for the sake of following the norm. There is so much potential once we really take care of ourselves and thinking for ourselves. But the goal is a utopian planet even if I wont be around to see it. 

When did you know you wanted to make music?

I started making music at age 7. I just always knew this is what I'm put here for. Ive worked at it relentlessly since then. 


What is your dream now that you just accomplished this dream?

My dream is to build a village. An example if you will of self sufficiency completely free of government influence, structure, or hindrance. I just dream of the day I'm fully FREE.

Have you ever been Stereotype'd? Tell us more.

As an openly lesbian female rapper everyone expects me to spit aggressively, talk about gangster issues, guns, drugs, all that stuff everybody else is on. Then they get this super awake social lyricist with flow and a totally different sound and every time the look they give me is one of awe. I can tell they 

didn't expect to hear this.

Have you ever broke a Stereotype someone had of you?

I break stereotypes people have of me everyday. I guess from my looks and the way I dress people expect this super hardcore chick to come off aggressive and 'manly' but Im really just down to earth and mad chill. My whole life is spent tryna catch the right vibe at the right moment so thats how I live out my "freedom" lolol. Ima happy, helpful, soul just trying to laugh and free my people. 

What advice would you give to something that is looking to pursuit their dreams?

You gotta be 100% in it. I tried the 50/50, trust me that don't work. You gotta be about it, live, eat, and be honest with yourself and the grind. But if you gonna do it... you really gotta do it WHOLE HEARTEDLY.

Respect the Producer Interview with Duve @duveprod

Amanda Giordano

duvepressebilde1.jpg

How did you get into Producing?
When I heard "Holdin On - Flume remix" in 2013 I instantly wanted to start producing music! it was so different from everything i had heard before. I played the classical violin for seven years before I fell in love with music production.

What did you do to advance your skills/knowledge?

I think that all the hours i practiced the classical violin helped me develop a good ear for melodies and harmony. I also played the drums for three years.

What did your first set up look like?

Just my ipad. And then i switched to a macbook pro + headset when i was 14.

What does your current set up look like?

My current set up contains my new macbook pro 15", Moog Sub Phatty, my KRK Rokit 4's and a Komplete audio 6 soundcard. (very basic, but i like producing on my headset a lot, so i dont need a lot gear.)

How did you get your Producer/Artist name?

I wrote down every name that popped up in my head for about a year, and suddenly the name "duve" got stuck in my head, and it felt different than all the other names i had written down that year.

If you could produce for any artist (dead or alive), who would it be?

Dua Lipa, Coldplay and Flume.

What is your goal when you create?

My goal is to create something that people think is unike and appealing.

What's your go-to song right now?

Taylor Moon - Burial

What is your dream as a Producer?

My dream is to work full-time with music.

What is some advice you would give to someone with a dream to become a Producer?

Produce a heck ton.
