Interview with ThaGata Negrra
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I am working on some nerdcore projects.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I will work on your project as much as is needed to suit your vision.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: The biggest misconception is that I am a one-trick pony. Most folx in my genre don't get me, or what I do, and barely know what I'm capable of. They just go on looks and my dancey material, and dismiss my stuff because it's not what they do.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Straight-no-chaser spunky velvety technicoulour hip-hop realness. Kawaii in the streets; senpai in the sheets (vocally/lyrically, of course).
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Artist: This is gonna seem odd, but Billie Joe Armstrong. I like his style. I would probably want to work with ?Love because of how he thinks, and De La Soul because childhood dream, LOL. Producer: Rick Rubin. Because Rick Rubin.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I work on mainly alt. hip-hop, but I have worked with rock and dance music.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Map out what the client wants, build, revise, record, maybe revise again to client's tweaks, and then present finished product.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My strongest skill would be rhyme vocals, but I'm a good writer as well.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring a quirky, unique-but-still-familiar vibe to a song.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: Professional setup in a family-run studio.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I'm still inspired by Golden-era Hip-Hop as well as some funk and plenty of New Wave music.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: The most common type of work is rap vocals, usually when they'd prefer something cute and sassy/no-nonsense.
