Who are you, TheDeepr ?
I am the founder of the Bocrew.
Could you explain to us what the Bocrew is ? Are you carrying some kind of a message ?
The Bocrew is a collective of beat makers. For a long time, rappers delivered their violent messages against society. They were angry, into the « struggle » as they say. Our message is a peaceful one, a positive attitude. We intend to contribute, to show to the world that hip hop can also broadcast a positive energy.
You use a lot of sound textures, samples, in your new album. Where does your inspiration come from ?
Actually, my inspiration comes from multiple influences. Music is like painting… Each style, each period of time, brings its own color, its color gamut. Electronic music, disco, hip hop, house music and most of all electro-funk from the 80s, to name the most influencing backgrounds…
Who would you name as your most influencing artists ?
The people who actually brought change to rap music are the ones who drew bridges between different styles, like DJ Spinna, who really succeeded in mixing electronic music, house music and hip hop.
Along with J-Dilla, King Britt and many more…
What drives us is the fusion of musical genres, the connections, between different worlds, different inspirations.
Your work is inspired by the life on the streets…
Oh yes. My friends and I, when we were kids, we used to go out and conquer the streets. We would express ourselves through graffiti. Of course, we wanted to be famous one day. There was an artistic, poetic dimension in our actions. We were dreaming that one day we would eventually be acknowledged for our work and our art would be shown in urban art galleries.
So why did you swap from the world of graffiti to music ?
Because I think that graffiti is still an efficient tool to become famous but the Internet is a wider web to be seen, especially through social networks. The web is no longer an urban area but it turns into an infinite range of possibilities.
Why did you call your album Airdrop ?
I wanted to give the idea of a burst of air, if that makes any sense, share the idea of change, of evolution, a progression into my music, like a breath of fresh air, but as compressed and thick as my sounds.
How do you intend to distribute your album, Airdrop ?
People will find it on the main online music stores.
Is there anything I forgot to ask you ?
Oh yes, we could have talked about Star Wars! Star Wars has crafted our culture, we grew up with it. With Airdrop, we use the machines to propel us into an intergalactic universe!
Thanks TheDeepr !
