Subconscious Culture – What Separates Us [Interview]

Describe your sound in 3 words

Bohemian Jazz Hip-Hop

Tell us a few things about your new album.

The new album is a commentary on many of our social dilemmas and my own personal struggles and observations. It is the first of two EPs discussing these topics. The second album will be called What Unifies Us and will be coming out some time in 202The second album will be discussing things that bring us together as the title states.

You blend many different genres.

We blend Hip Hop with most every other genre out there.
I don’t like confining ourselves to one category or another. Music is fluid and open to whatever style speaks to the concept and mood of the song.

What is your creative process like?

We work in many different ways. Sometime jamming on a tune and freestyling lyrics over it then taking it into the studio and working up a rough idea then refining it. I also have started writing my own music now. So I will record the rough idea, bring it to my team and elaborate on it then record the finished song. I like to leave things open to my collaborators as much as possible because I don’t always have the best ideas. Collaboration is all about getting everyone’s input and bringing the best ideas to the table.

Which song of the album reflects you the most?

Pices of Me and Concerning Karen. They portray both my serious side and my goofy side.

Do you think there is a true underground hip hop sound today?

I think Hip Hop is ever evolving so I don’t think there is one true Underground Hip Hop sound by an amalgam of different sounds and styles. To answer this in full I would have to discuss it in a conversation.

Is Spotify the music industry’s new Gatekeepers?

They definitely hold a lot of cards seeing as they are the main streaming platform. All the same I think they need to respect artists more and pay them more for their streams and find better ways to give back to their community that makes them tons of money every year. I personally think they are rather scandalous in how they work right now.

In which state of mind do you imagine people might listen to your music?

In a reflective and thoughtful state of mind.

One last thing we should know about?

We are currently working on a bunch of new singles and a whole new full band album as well as a full Video and audio spoken word album. We are constantly evolving and looking to inspire people from every demographic, through multiple styles of music and media.

Thank you!
