Interview with Dubble-U

Love Music : Let’s talk a bit about your music and what is the secret behind your success ?

Dedication, persistence and the will to want this more than the million other people that want the same thing you have to wake up every day and want more than everybody else, every time.

Love Music :  Can you please tell our readers about your Album ' Freestyle Only Vol. 1 ' ?

Freestyle only volume one is a 17 track album it's all freestyles only, hence the name and also it's all recorded off an iPhone and that's that that's the whole agenda is I'm freestyling only and all recorded on the phone with bare minimal editing tools, until I get a deal, till I signed a record deal and if not then I guess I'll be free styling the rest of my life. and when I say freestyle I'm talking my real raw unedited no redo freestyle. Not this time with these other guys that do this reciting what they wrote you know a month, a week before I don't write ever so is straight up real freestyling. about to drop volume two and then three immediately after that Vol 2 is going to be a 40 track album , i feel its the best one. three is going to be about a 15 track album to finish it up

Love Music :  Any upcoming project?

Like I said I got volume 2 dropping any day now and I've got volume three come in immediately after that like a week or 2 after that and then after that you know if there's no deal in the works I'll just start the next the saga of freestyle mixtapes

Love Music :  Please tell us more about your singing style ? 

Well you know it's not just a steady one tone,  one dimensional freestyle so it's either a switch up a lot in my flows here and there then breakout of some some some tune but you know it's just straight up hip-hop rap freestyling. i paint a different picture every song. u really don't ever know exactly what its going to be

Love Music :  Who are your musical inspirations?

I'm from Houston originally so no with that i grew up listening to a lot of flip, Chamillionaire ,zero ,Scarface, screw u know I jam at all

Love Music :  Do you have any advice for anyone wanting to be a professional musician ?

Yeah, if you want it bad enough you know put your mind to it and do it. A lot of people talk about it and say “I want to be a rapper you know I want to do this and I want to do that” but they spend most the time you know talking about it when you wake up, put your goals into action but the action to it less mouth to it and you will achieve. 

Love Music :  Have you set some goals to achieve ? 

Yeah like I said my goal is to only free style. I can easily write, anybody can easily write stories and poetry…. Whatever, but mine personally….really the only goal I have until I sign with a major label is to only freestyle. And if I cant make that happen, I can tell you that’s the end of me ever writing music. And i can compose some great lyrics. Well last time when I was 16 yrs old I could anyway.

Love Music :  If you could perform anywhere, in the world, where would it have to be?

I've been hearing that the new cowboy Stadium is mighty nice with the big Megatron you know I'd like to see my pretty face on there but in honesty, I grew up a basketball fan I played basketball and it was another thing a ran too in the streets, it was basketball & music that saved me and pulled me thru those times. So if I have to choose a venue…. then the Rose Garden honestly 

Love Music : Please share with us your proudest moments ?

Pretty much every time I step on stage to do a show. I never thought that I would even make it to this point… so yeah feel proud every time I step on stage

Love Music :  Are you active on social media?

Interview With J.T. Pender

Jacoby “J.T.” Pender was born into a family of musicians in the rurally located town of Port Angeles, Washington. His mother, father and brothers were all aspiring musicians throughout his life. He credits his family for providing an environment of constant musical creativeness growing up.

Although he is skilled with a beat pad or sampler, he is also a capable musician with the keys, guitar and bass. A typical studio session with J.T. reveals that he can create a track from scratch with any arrangement of instruments and develop it into a published song. As a recording engineer, songwriter and vocalist, J.T. has shown an ability to perform well in all areas of the song creation process. Under his urban music label, GameRunnaZ Records, J.T. has amassed a catalog of over 10 published albums with various artists from the Northwest.
J.T. also stays in demand as a music publisher for his self-founded company True Audible, gaining music placements in many different media outlets. Most recently his music has been placed on the UK’s re-airing of The Hills for MTV Networks, the feature film Something Like A Business, the PGA Tour and web series such as Sorority Forever and Prom Queen 2.

J.T. Recently most recently revamped GameRunnaZ Music Publishing through GameRunnaZ Records, and has secured music placements with Fuse TV, Bravo!, B.E.T., amongst other TV networks.

Love Music : Let’s talk a bit about your music and what is the secret behind your success ?

Persistence. I've been making music for 20 years. A lot of people when they think Hip Hop producer or rapper, they think Bentley, champaign, mansions. Overnight success. Hit single. But, the truth is, everything takes a lot of work behind the scenes. I've known artists that quit music for good, just because someone criticized their album. This was before the internet. Look at it now…the negativity is all summed up on one social media post. So, just sticking with it is half the battle for any musician, and persistently improving your skills and formula. Even when my music was struggling for inspiration, I’d still be making it. So, when you get a hit or something that’s fire, it makes it all that much more gratifying. 

Love Music : Can you please tell our readers about your latest project, The Success Freestyle?

For the last year I've been working heavy on the business side. Our record label, publishing company, and brand GameRunnaZ Records has secured some contracts that have allowed us to put our Hip Hop music into TV networks and film more than ever. But, at the core, I’m a musician and an artist. The Success Freestyle is my “back again” project. It is the first song from my incoming word in progress the “It Is What It Isn't.”

Love Music : And background Of The Success Freestyle Song & Video?

I just kept seeing people posting freestyles online, and I honestly questioned that they were freestyles or off the top. It kind of bothered my a little. Like, what is a freestyle nowadays then?  Like, most people that know me know I CAN freestyle, but I don’t step in cyphers and battle and all that. In the studio, half my songs start with Freestyles we end up keeping. With “The Success” freestyle I had an idea of what topic, but I wanted to do it from the top. So, that was where the live recording in booth concept happened. Cut a video with two iPhones and just let it roll. I actually did one freestyle and I forgot to arm the track in Logic, so the freestyle that made the video is actually the second attempt, like it shows. I had to keep it real.

Love Music : Please tell us more about your music style ? 

I've switched up a few times over the years. My style has been very artistically inclined since I released the No Apologies album. Even more with Affirmations. I try to put a message in my music an always take the listener somewhere. That doesn't always jive with what’s on the radio or what’s trending, but it’s what I do. One of my goals in music production has always been to try to bring the most dynamic energy without crowding my beats. I've gotten away from that the last few projects, but I’m bringing that concept back for “It Is What It Isn't”

Love Music : Who are your musical inspirations?

Too many to name in a sit down. I was raised on my pop’s vinyl collection…everyone from Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, Gil Scott Heron. All the way through B.I.G., Tribe Called Quest,Wu Tang, and 2Pac. New guys like J. Cole and Kendrick really inspire me to make new music.

Love Music : Do you have any advice for anyone wanting to be a professional musician ?

It’s easier now than ever in history to start experimenting with music production and recording. If you really want to do it, start now. Quit waiting. There’s really no excuse anymore to not do music if that’s what you want to do. Professionally, remember, it’s BUSINESS… it’s not always beats and rhymes. Be ready for when it gets complicated. Study the game. BE READY AND STAY READY!

Love Music : Have you set some goals to achieve ? 

Just had a dope experience composing for Season 2 of The Hollywood Puppet Show on Fuse. I’d like to compose music for a movie someday in between everything else I’m trying to do out here.

Love Music : If you could perform anywhere, in the world, where would it have to be?

Those huge festivals in Europe look wild. Dubai looks dope. My backyard would be dope at this point….it’s been a couple years since I've performed live. That’s about to change. Anyone that’s seen me knows my stage game is legit.

Love Music : Please share with us your proudest moments ?

Seeing my one year old son hit the pads on my beat pad.

Love Music : Are you active on social media?

I stay pretty active on my Instagram @jtpender and I’m on the others. The new IGTV platform is starting to catch some exclusive content. Youtube stays up with new stuff as well.

Exodus Swift’s “Woke” Album

I had a chance to listen to Exodus Swift’s “Woke” Album. First off, this is unlike any gospel rap album I’ve ever heard. I would listen to this all day if I had the time too. And I’m not just saying that. This is too good to be a gospel rap album. And I’m not putting down gospel music or the hard working gospel rap artist that’s out here. 

I listen to Andy, Lecrae, Da Truth, KB, and so many more. But none of their albums left me thinking on a deep aspect the way Exodus Swift just did with this “Woke” album. The features are crazy! From Hollywood actors to legendary musicians, it’s crazy! I’m not going to spoil it because it hasn't dropped yet. But, speaking as a music critic. Exodus Swift’s “Woke “ is the realest gospel rap album of all time.

Interview with Hakan Sunar of Spiritual Machinery

Love Music : Let’s talk a bit about your music and what is the secret behind your success ? 

Well, the thing is that pop and rock music have their limitations due to the set of rules that define the music. It's not just about the musical rules. Scales, notes, chords etc. But it's also about the fact that what you do is that you just copy something and try to add some of your own personality, or whatever to it.  

I mean, almost anything you hear can be placed in a genre. If you make a reggae track you copy reggae and try to come up with something of your own. That last part is very difficult. It doesn't get easier when you have all those favorite reggae tunes in your head. It's sort of unavoidable. 

Nine times out of ten you'll most likely end up with something like a remake or remix of all that reggae stuff stored in your memory. 

So what I'm trying to do is to add as much of my own musical identity , or whatever, to what I do.

Love Music : Can you please tell our readers about your latest released project? 

"As The World Goes Around" - That was a very difficult track. It started out as a simple synthpop track. But somehow the chorus didn't fit the arrangement. It has a bit of a 60's beat music feel to it. So I'd to rework the orchestration for the chorus part. But that didn't solve the problem. It just reversed it. This time the verse parts didn't fit to the chorus. 

I lost count on how many changes I did on this track. The final version is a hybrid of beat music, eurovision, synthpop and whatever else that's in there. Unfortunately I missed out some pitch issues after the track was released. But despite that I think it's a very catchy and uplifting tune. 

Love Music : Any new project do you have coming up ?

Yea, I'm currently working on a song we recorded a few months back. Struggling actually. Because there are some technical issues I haven't solved yet. However I released a short teaser for fans and followers on the Spiritual Machinery Facebook fan page. 

It's a mid-tempo electro-reggae-ish soulful tune called "Hold On". 

There are also plans for a video for a previous release.

Love Music : Please tell us more about your first synthesizer (a KORG Polysix) ?

I and some classmates used to jam in a music studio. They had a small control room with an 8-track tapemachine, a 12-channel mixer console, some audio processing gear and two synthesizers. A, at that time, new digital synthesizer Yamaha DX 7 and an older analog synth KORG Polysix.

Everybody was drooling over the DX 7. Because you could play acoustic instrument sounds on it. Like piano, saxophone, cello et cetera.  

I didn't quite understood the point of playing saxophone on anything but a real saxophone. To me a synthesizer should sound like a synthesizer and not like an imitation of a cowbell.  

So, I was way more interested in the OTHER SYNTH.

The KORG Polysix is actually a quite simple analog synth. It has only one oscilator. But the sound is very fat and warm. It's great for strings. It has a small memory . So you can store your sounds. There's also a fun arpeggiator aboard.

Anyway, my father bought me a Polysix in a second hand shop for musicians. I think it cost around $250 or something. He also bought me a drum machine and a 4-track portastudio one or two years later. Still to this day I'm endlessly grateful for that. 

Love Music : Who are your musical inspirations? 

Oh, there are so many. When I as 6 or 7 I started out by singing along to StevIe Wonder's LP "Talking Book". Y-know, songs like "You Are The Sunshine Of My Life" and "Superstitious". I also loved MGM musicals with Gene Kelly. "Singing In The Rain", "An American In Paris".

As a teenager I mostly listened to synthpop music. Like Depeche Mode, Kraftwerk, Giorgio Moroder, Jarre, Vangelis stuff like that. 

I actually enjoy all kinds of music. From Bela Bartôk and Karlheniz Stockhausen to Peggy Lee and Bowie.

Sounds are also a great source of inspiration. The funny thing is that soundS somehow dictates the way you play. Depending on the sound's pitch, velocity et cetera you're going to play a certain way.

Love Music : Do you have any advice for anyone wanting to be a professional electronic / pop musician ? 

In the post-punk era of the early 80's there was this idea that anyone could make music. You didn't have to be a brilliant instrumentalist. Sure, that was true - to some extent. Technology made it easier for non-musicians to make music. 

Today that should be even more true. Especially considering the technological development over the last few decades. 

But it's not. 

You have all these loops, samples, presets and production kits that you cna play around with. Like LEGO. You can alter a great drum loop and play a vocal sample on top of it. Naturally the pre-made stuff will sound great. But, apart from that won't really be your own music, it's actually very hard to make a good production out of that. 

A good song or production isn't something you just sneeze out of your nose. It'll still boil down to the fact that you need some level of knowledge and, hopefully, some talent. 

And so, my advice would be to bite in the soar apple and do the homework. 

Love Music : Have you set some goals to achieve ?

Yes, to clean up and organize my audio library. It seems like it's never going to happen.

Love Music : If you could perform anywhere, in the world, where would it have to be? 

I don't really know. Maybe the Meistersal at Hansa studios in Berlin. It's the famous studio next to the, former, Berlin wall where David Bowie recorded his Berlin trilogy albums. He recorded the vocals for "Heroes" in that location [Meistersal aka Studio 2]. Since then a string of well know artists have been recording there. Depeche Mode, U2, R.E.M and so on. The Meistersal is a very big room with absolutely fantastic acoustics. I saw a video a couple years ago when Daniel Miller, the head of Mute records, performed there together with producer Gareth Jones. It was great. I would love to perform there. It won't be a to big audience. So I won't get nervous and play a bum note [laugh].

Love Music : Please share with us your proudest moments ?

Oh, there are so many. I contributed with some music for a commercial for the city's enterprises. There was a reception. Everybody was there. The mayor, all the politicians, business people, local media and so on. We got standing ovations for like 10 minutes or so. That was pretty cool. 

I remember a gig on a club when suddenly somebody in the audience threw something on me that landed on the keyboard. I was thinking "f**k they hate us !" Then I realized it was a girl who had thrown her bra. O.K - that's maybe not a "proud" moment. But it was pretty flattering. I mean, I was just 22 or something and any expression of appreciation from any girl would have been counted as a success. At that time. Well, O.K I admit - I guess I'm still vulnerable to that [laugh]

Love Music : Are you active on social media? 

Yes, you sort of have to these days. There's this Facebook Fanpage and I'm also on Twitter. I guess I should sign up for Instagram, Google+, Snapchat etc. I'm not so familiar with all the social media. I'll have to ask my daughter. She's a dedicated expert.
