M-Rock Emrik – Tenderness [Interview]

Describe your sound in 3 words

Funk, dance, sweat

Tell us a few things about your new song “Tenderness”. What is the story behind it?

I got a few musical ideas from a guy called neoholics in the southern part of Sweden. I started out and wrote the lyrics to the first verse which delas with racism, but also being true to yourself and try a little tenderness towards the ones your with. The whole song is a love message, but with a twist. I took the song to my band and we reworked a few parts, and recorded the basic track live in the studio. The chorus came to me later on, and then johanna Hjort a fantastic singer added some nice ad libs and vocals. Also live horns edited by grammy award winner _mattias Bylund. And mixed by Opolopo.

For which lyric you are most proud of?

The first verse, is nice, especialy in the beginning.

Favourite album of all time?

Oh hard one.. there are so many , but when it comes to hip hop probably EPMDs first album so many cool tracks , and really got my old band Stonefunkers going in the right direction.

What would be your dream performance venue?

I did play at a cool venue in amsterdam a long time ago Paradiso, would be nice to visit again.. never played in paris, so a nice underbround club in paris would be nice

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

People getting high or making love, or both i suppose, but also as a nice wake up call before your 9-5 job.

What is the most trouble you’ve ever gotten into?

I was once arrested from skateboarding drunk, and got a ticket from the officer,
also when i took so much acid at the roskilde festival in denmark that i thought the whole festival was a war camp and that the attendants were soldiers ready to kill.

Thank you!
