IAMNOBODI è cosi, anticonvenzionale nel senso più puro del termine. È saltato fuori dal nulla con un’album che è pressapoco una meraviglia( Elevated), continua a regalare tracce in free download ai suoi fans, “la ragione del mio successo” citando le sue stesse parole. La cosa che più ti colpisce di lui è che è perfettamente come te lo immagini: un ragazzo, un artista che si sente fortunato, ama il suo lavoro e che ha un talento, a mio modo di vedere, sproporzionato. Abbiamo parlato più volte di lui sulle pagine di DLSO, adesso l’abbiamo raggiunto per un’intervista.
Even if we know that “YOUARENOBODI”, there are few things we would like to know about you. Your moniker IAMNOBODI for example. Is there any particular reason behind it?
It’s probably exactly what you think. False idols man, it bothers me. So with a name like that i want people to think a bit more sometimes.
What’s the kind of music that most rappresent your roots, your background and your musical evolution?
Basically the Jazz.
You like Pop and R&B, as we know. Have you ever thought about producing an instrumental Hip-Hop track to give to some rapper? And if you could choose, which rapper would you like to do his thing on your beats?
I’m listening to a lotta smooth shit lately. I don’t know, Big Krit, Joey Badass.. love what they do.
Talking about production. I’m really curious about your creative process. I mean, how do you choose the sounds to sample, what’s your approach to a production?
It’s always about that feeling. For me as a musician, i want people to really dive into it. So that’s always in my head when i start to make a beat.
In my opinion there was an evolution in the Hip-Hop beats from the old school ones to these new kind of sounds, which in my opinion, among others, you represent. Do you agree? What’s your opinion on it?
Thank you! It’s cool! I like all the different styles. I’m good with it.
Recently, we’ve covered German artists like Flo Mega e Dude & Phaeb. Do you know them? And what do you think about the current status of the more Hip-Hop/ Beats’n’Bass oriented German music scene?
Yo straight up Flo Mega is a Soul God! So much energy. And of course i know Dude & Phaeb, cool cats, also like what they do.
I can see that you’ve a really interactive relationship with your fans, you love speaking with them on facebook and give them (us) a lot of presents in free download. How do you find the time and why do you think it’s so important?
A lot of producers prefer to let others do the social networking for example, or just don’t connect with their fans. It’s important to me man. I wouldn’t be where i am today without my supporters tho. It doesn’t hurt to give some feedback from time to time or answer some questions.
After the success of Elevated, what’s your plans for 2014? Another album maybe?
Yea i’m workin on my new album, but i take my time with it.
