Quest-Rah Exclusive Interview

Quest-Rah is a rapper from London making some serious moooooves!!! His latest offering “Ancient Tapes Vol.2: The Lost Art” is on rotation at the Da Real Biz HQ so we had to get this interview…

Quest Rah Interview

Thanks for passing by www.darealbiz.com. Please introduce yourself and tell us about what you have released to date.
Quest-Rah, Hip Hop MC and producer and spoken word artist, wass good???

Where do you live and what is it there? What’s the main Hip-Hop radio show in your city?
I live in London. I don’t listen to much radio so I couldn’t tell you man. I seen that BBC Fire in the Booth is kinda big.

When did you start making music and more importantly why did you decide to make music?
I started recording in 2004 but used to make music and tapes a few years before that. I started making music for several reasons, one of them was I had an ear for dope beats, and because I had to channel a lot of my thoughts and energies during the post-9/11 climate around the world man…

When did you release your first song and what was the response like?
I released all my first music online. It was around 2004/2005 and for an unknown artist, I think the response was real good…

How you would you describe your musical style and swagger?
I’d say the music has a lot of flavor man. A lot of thought goes in to the beats and rhymes.

Let’s talk about your latest project. Where can we get it, who features and what label is it on?
My latest project is Ancient Tapes Vol.2:The Lost Art and I’m grateful with the outcome. I’m putting this one out mainly as free download because I want people to really hear it, and there is also a limited edition CD version available. You can find it at www.quest-rah.bandcamp.com it features; The Planets who recently did a project produced by Roc Marciano, Pheonix Da Icefire of Triple Darkness, Digital Martyrs and Ikwon from the States and more. The project is released under Tawheed is Unity which is more of a movement than a label.

How long did it take to create and finish?
I decided to do the follow up to Vol.1 end of last year. Before that I was building on my creativity, deep in thought and the experiences of life. I went through a lot of mental and physical training to come up with this project right here!!  

If you was in the streets and you came up to me with your latest release to try and sell it to me, what would you say? What major points would be in your sales pitch?!!
I’d let you hear the ish and see for yourself. You can describe a delicious food to someone all day long, but until they taste it for themselves they may not be as interested.

What would you consider to be your biggest track to date?
It seems from popularity that it would be ‘1001 Nightz’ and ‘The Groves.’ I’m liking the outcome of the tracks I first put out for this new project too, they are; ‘Legend of a Fighter’, ‘Opium Warz’ and ‘Move On, Elevate.’ All praise is due to the Most High regardless.

Being totally honest, do you still buy music? If so where do you get your CD’s from?
Yeah but not as much as I used to. I used to collect CD’s like Mum and Pop’s would collect vinyl but I don’t anymore. I have bought music recently though. I try support my UK hip-hop fam when they wanna sell me there CD, other than that I just bought some Gnawa music from my recent trip to Essaouira in Morocco.

Do you like any other styles of music outside your genre?
Other styles of music influence me most definitely, there’s no doubt about it. It really has to speak to me though. There is a lot of music that hurts the soul man, or is just plain soulless itself.

So how can promoters book you for shows and what does your live show entail?
They can contact tribezmanproductions@gmail.com. I recently did a few shows where I got a percussionist to assist the backing tracks and it sounds real dope. I can rock the raw hip-hop crowd or the world music crowd, I aint got an issue with that man.

Do you think illegal downloads are killing the music industry or does it help artists to get out there? 
I couldn’t care less about the music industry. They couldn’t care less about real artistry. The music industry is an oppressive machine and I don’t mess with it man. If you got love for good music and appreciate thought provoking messages and want to support that artist then you should support them in any way you can. 

Good luck for the future. Anything you want to add before you go?
Big up Da Real Biz, thanks for opening your door to me, it’s appreciated. People reading this should check out Ancient Tapes Vol.2, I’m confident good Hip-Hop fans wouldn’t be disappointed.

Quest Rah ‘Ancient Tapes Volume 2 – The Lost Art’ FREE MP3 & Vid

“A Lost Art” the alias for Quest-Rah’s final chapter to the “Ancient Tapes” series is making a bold statement. Hip Hop has lost a lot of the fine elements which defined it in its golden era, raw beats, intoxicating melodies and fine lyricism, and Quest is on a mission to not just “bring back” these vital aspects of quality music but to take you forward with them. Quest-Rah’s sound is born out of struggle, celebration and life lessons. He blends the raw elements of Hip Hop MC’ing and production and adds an oriental twist making the final product unique from the norm.

Leading Hip-Hop review website RapReviews.com probably put it the best when they said: “Quest-Rah has a thing for piano samples, cinematic beats, Islam, and twisting tales of street drama into byzantine mythologies. Quest-Rah also proves to be a unique emcee, (his) production style is East Coast meets Middle East, with snapping snares over Arabic instrumentation. It’s a nice combination of familiar and exotic, adding a twist to the usual hip hop sound…”

Ancient Tapes Vol.2: The Lost Art is his latest offering and features UK hip hop veterans The Planets and Phoenix Da Icefire of Triple Darkness amongst others and US MC’s Ikwon (Miami) & Digital Martyrs (Bay Area) and heavy production from Ancient Arts, Ayman Raze (The Planets), J Zak, Quest himself and others. The first single “Legend of a Fighter” is a soulful summer track, an ode to the artists’ various inspirations, including a tribute to the recent uprisings across the world. The next single “Move On, Elevate” is a cinematic journey through grimy city life with Quest declaring its time to ‘Move on and elevate past the madness’. “Opium Warz” with Phoenix Da Icefire & Phonetikz will surely cater to fans of dark Wu-esque music.

Quest has performed around the UK at such venues as London’s Excel centre and Trafalgar Square and festivals up and down the country, always injecting energy and passion into his shows. In late 2009 Quest hooked up with popular video directors Global Faction to film videos for ‘Element of Truth’ and ‘The Quest’ and plans to release a video for his new project in the coming months.

Although he maintains a relatively low profile, the work he has put out has been hard hitting and influential. Fans of quality hip-hop and music in general will surely appreciate this latest offering. The project is available for FREE download, alternatively Quest would appreciate your extra support by purchasing the LIMITED EDITION digipak CD copy from: www.quest-rah.bandcamp.com.

Starch Music Records presents the superb new ILL MOVE SPORADIC & JOEY MENZA album ‘ALPHA CODA’.

Ill Move Sporadic (I.M.S) & Joey Menza ‘Alpha Coda’

01 – Alpha Intro
02 – Mercury
03 – Barcoded
04 – End To End Burners
05 – Wire Taps
06 – Dream Time
07 – Wild Things
08 – Style Gonzo
09 – Bar Crushers Feat. Tenchoo
10 – Battle Axes
11 – Anger Management Feat. Ulysses 31
12 – Superstar
13 – Dump Feat C Sparks & Gus Pony (Bonus Track)
14 – Coda Outro

Do you like good quality UK Hip-Hop with bags of organic goodness and delivered with tight lyrical bars and outstandingly top notch production? Then ‘Alpha Coda’ is one album that you seriously need to check out! This album includes the head-snapping track ‘Battle Axes’ which has already featured on UK Runnings ‘UK Rap Chronicles’ release for iTunes, as well as ‘Anger Management’ being used on the DC Shoes Big Push DVD (Nov Issue of Sidewalk Magazine). Also included on this long-player is the killer cut ‘Bar Crushers’ which features Don’t Flop/Battle Scars Winner -Techno.

With Ill Move Sporadic’s reputation as producers firmly in place, following last years release ‘The Magnetic Mixtape’ and Joey Menza carving out his reputation as one of the scenes brightest, most original MCs, Starch Music Records are now set to unleash I.M.S’s strongest piece of work yet to date. A fourteen track, hard hitting, no holds barred reaction to life in London, conforming to nothing and no one. Matching together Joey Menza’s incredible mind altering lyrics with I.M.S’s raw, unique and twisted analogue beats.

‘Alpha Coda’ was recorded over the course of 2010 at I.M.S Friendly Studios in Deptford. Through a considered process of crafting beats and an unbroken creative correspondence with then localised MC Menza, rough demos soon turned into locked bars and finished tracks. This constant trade off of inspiration, ideas and experience between MC Menza and producers Neil Cage & Ben81 has resulted in a jostling at times, haunting and always severingly thoughtful master work.

Joey had this to say about his contribution

‘I really wanted to match the style of I.M.S, with the stripped down, raw sound and texture of their beats, so I redesigned my flowing style to a degree, brought it back to the root, but kept the delivery hard too. In terms of the subject matter, there is a broad range of topics. Paranoia, hallucinations, drugs, conspiracy, the future, the present, history, myth, dystopian visions, politics, realism, hip hop culture, battle rap and a ton of other things too. I didn’t want to make a record where I just did a whole bunch of rhymes bragging about how great I am or whatever. I was walking a fine line between abstract and direct style. I didn’t want it to be too biased and obvious most of the time, cos ramming my opinions down peoples throats don’t appeal to me. I want people to think for themselves, and come to their own conclusions, understand?’

This album is a timeless piece that doesn’t compromise itself in any way; it is pure, independent hip-hop that is also a relevant commentary on-and reflection of-the world we live in today.

‘Listed People’ is the brand new debut album from UK Rap’s In Your Mind (I.Y.M) No1 Londonboys, consisting of crew members Sosa (CEO/manager), Pliaz (Rapper/Producer), Ratty (Rapper), LG (Rapper), Dreamer (Rapper) and JR6 (singer). The album features guest artist Cobane from The Colony and OEM Records as well as production from guest producers Richie Fargas aka Richie Rich and Dil from Bootylicious. With members from South London as well as East London, this is music that the capitol city should be proud of. IYM is the brainchild of Sosa, who was looking for like-minded MC’s & producers who shared the same enthusiasm and dedication to making something out of nothing.
IYM have already played live at a number of musically crucial gigs and with a roster of experienced and lyrically mature artists, the future looks bright for this young talented outfit.

Sosa says “I feel I.Y.M as a label is now ready to showcase its vision, making music that is fresh and vital, reflecting the scene in London. This London is one that is total… music, fashion, film, entertainment!” Sosa, the labels current producer and driving force is currently putting finishing touches to an album and mix tape which showcases what the hype is all about. I.Y.M. has a line in clothing and accessories that first started out as a way to build a media profile, a way to reach fans out in the Diaspora. This venture offers hooded tops, t-shirts (fitted and loose), jumpers, and polo shirts as well as dedicated swag for the savvy sisters out there. The line is modeled by I.Y.M. artists featured on the website. This line whilst currently sold out, new stock would be available soon via www.iymlondonboys.co.uk.

It’s The Return Of The 5Footaz!‏

Reputable all-female West Coast sextet, The 5Footaz, comprised of Jah Skillz, NebLuv, Knehi, Cobra (Red), Ka-Bar and I-AME, collectively came together as a unit at the behest of founding member Skillz, a.k.a. Diana Floss, following her contributions to mentor Warren G’s multi-platinum solo debut, Regulate…G Funk Era [1994].

After recording her anthem-like stand-out solo selection, “Super Soul Sis,” Jah was invited to accompany Warren on the popular Budweiser Superfest. In turn, she asked her college friend, NebLuv, to also join the trek, backing Jah on her part of the set. Over the next few years, both Jah and Neb, as The 5Footaz, continued to tour the United States and abroad with Warren G.

By the time the original two-woman crew were assembled, The 5Footaz were soon able to secure, under industry impresario Lyor Cohen, a promising deal with Def Jam Recordings. Plans immediately were underway for their, then highly anticipated, premiere outing, Worldwide. Unfortunately, both Warren and the label brass had a major conflict of interest, therefore causing their first project to be shelved indefinitely.

After obtaining a release from “The House that Russell Simmons Built,” The 5Footaz quickly regrouped and found another home at BMG, where they started putting together, what was to become, their sophomore effort, Lifetime. Around this same time, “Walkaway,” a track recorded for the platinum-plus Jason’s Lyric soundtrack, emerged, ultimately bringing Jah and Neb together with their other, future, 5Footaz members [then utilizing the moniker Unit 5]. “The Heist,” which appeared on the musical accompaniment to the movie Set It Off, was the end result of that newly found union. Largely attributed to, specifically, the huge response to “The Heist” composition, The 5Footaz were later nominated for a multitude of awards, including a Lady of Soul nod for Best Female Rap Duo or Group. Sadly, the same fate fell upon their second LP, and it, too, ended up being put on the back burner. Eventually, both albums, The Lost Scrolls (initially titled Worldwide) and Lifetime, were finally made available online, and today are largely considered collector’s items by many Hip-Hop aficionados.

Flash forward to 20-11 and beyond, and the good…No, take that back…Great news is that The 5Footaz have valiantly returned with a brand new mix-tape release, Rewired, to serve as a precursor of sorts to their eagerly awaited, forthcoming third full-length collection, Ride of your Life. A still in development reality show and documentary, as well as both a domestic and world tour, are also in the planning stages to coincide with their musical comeback.

“We are very excited about how much positive feedback we have been getting about our project. We are definitely more seasoned and mature when it comes to the type of music we are making,” Skillz, who is currently working towards her bachelor’s degree with future plans to attend law school, announces, sounding extremely elated about their new material. Re-iterating, she further relays, “Many have grown into producing, playing instruments, singing (and) things of that nature, so you’ll see more of those attributes. This album will be fun, informative and a lyrical 411 on what it is to be a ‘B-Girl,’ and how Hip-Hop really should be represented.”

In addition, all six members continue to be involved in various individual endeavors; including, solo records, literary works, outside business ventures, but all the while continuing to build and re-establish their own unique 5Footaz brand.

“We are all working on solo releases as well, and we are all collabin’ with one another on those projects. Being there are so many of us, you will also get to know us individually as well as artists. All of us have our own ideas and creativity that we want to share with the world,” I-AME [pronounced I AM ME], the latest edition to The 5Footaz family, emphasizes, making her point quite clear. Interjecting, Ka-Bar, who, herself, possesses a bachelor’s degree in mass communications from California State University at Fullerton, summarizes their entire career run beginning with their whole inception, “We were very young when we got started, it was such a different game back then. We didn’t have Myspace, Facebook , Twitter , Ustream or any other digitial social networking media tools back then. It was street teams, live release parties, stickers and billboards everywhere. The industry changed so much…Biggie and Pac got killed, 9-11 happened. We came up in an era of change before Obama…Mase became a pastor…” she pauses for a moment, and then concludes with a sigh relief, “Being a woman the stakes are so high, and when you are beautiful, young and creative it makes it a lot more difficult in this male dominated industry. The life is so fast, and you can easily get mislead by the materialism in front of you that is all just a distraction and illusion to distract from your true purpose in this buisness. I am glad (we) took time out to preserve (ourselves) and reflect on how (we) wanted (our) music to affect and influence the audience. It takes so much more than a hot sixteen, or being swagged out. Now, we have all the creative control, power, wisdom and knowledge, to run our business like Oprah — We OWN our network!”

S.Kalibre Feat. Kashmere, Sonny Jim, D Gritty & Genesis Elijah – Say Peace (Produced by Slapupmill)

Born and raised in Chatham, Kent, S.Kalibre is no new-comer to the rap game. After getting into Hip-Hop at an early age he was soon influenced by the sounds of Ice-T, Krs-One, NWA, Public Enemy and other acts around this time. Being exposed to music from such a young age it wasn’t long before he started scripting rhymes. In 1999 S Kalibre met up with local producer Mike S (Slapupmill) 1999 and joined a crew called UTI (Under The Influence). The crew recorded a collection of songs which never actually saw the light of day due to financing and members relocating to other parts of the country. It was at this point Mike S & S.Kalibre formed the two man team called Hard Livin.

Hard Livin’ started doing shows all over the UK and began collaborating with other artists. They were picked up by record label called Sin Nombre and a distribution deal with Universal followed. They enjoyed various media support including plays of their promotional video ‘Oh Girl’ on TV, reviews in newspapers and magazines, as well as radio play.

Now at the age of 28, S.Kalibre is an accomplished UK artist who has worked with a host of artists from all over the UK and USA including Blade, Skinnyman, Q Unique, Daz Dillinger, Sabotage Yo Style, Scoob Rock, Junior Disprol and up and coming artists like Apocraphe, Genesis Elijah, Syndrome, Dap C, Bury Crew, Conflix, Troy Scalpels, Manage, CLG, DX, Armshouse, Baron Samedi, Natty, Wordperfect, Humark D Gritty, Stig of the Dump, Redeye, Dr Syntax, Frisko Dan, Stag P, Ironbridge and many more.

S.Kalibre has also shared stages with the likes of De La Soul, Blade, Skinnyman, Phi Life Cypher, Kashmere, Jehst and many many more. S.Kalibre is currently in the studio with producer Slapupmill working on his second mixtape and street album and working on soundtracks for up & coming cutting edge urban dramas and short films.

‘Say Peace’ is S.Kalibre’s brand new single which features Kashmere, Sonny Jim, D Gritty & Genesis Elijah and is produced by Slapupmill.

Nightwalker Interview

Q: Thanks for passing by www.darealbiz.com. Please introduce yourself and tell us about what you have released to date.

A: Hi my name is Nightwalker and I’m an alcoholic. In 2007 I independently released an album called ‘Archaeology’. It sucked.

Q: Where do you live and what is it there? What’s the main Hip-Hop radio show in your city?

A: I currently live in Long Island, New York. Honestly I haven’t listened to the radio since about 2001 so I couldn’t tell you. The Long Island music scene is fuckin terrible though. There’s a LOT of really talented cats on the island but the promoters are fuckin horrible and couldn’t pack 100 kids in a venue if Wu-Tang was performing and ODB was back from the dead. That’s why I travel. I’m actually out in Chicago right now! Haha

Q: When did you start making music and more importantly why did you decide to make music?

A: I’ve been playing the guitar and bass since I was about 11 years old. I have been into music as far back as I could remember and was always writing songs and lyrics. I think it was just meant to be. I knew even as a kid that I didn’t wanna live a “normal” life or work a “real” job. I never imagined myself living like that.

Q: When did you release your first song and what was the response like?

A: The first song I recorded was maybe 1999 or 2000. Everyone that I showed to liked it but obviously it was dog shit. I mean that’s like an artist looking at a painting they did when they were a kid.

Q: How you would you describe your musical style and swagger?

A: what?

Q: Let’s talk about your latest project. Where can we get it, who features and what label is it on?

A: My newest project is called ‘Walking At Night’ and is being released June 7th 2011 on Redphone Records. It’s a real independent project so it will be in mom and pop shops across the US and Europe and www.redphonerecords.net

Q: How long did it take to create and finish?

A: The last project I released was in 2007 so I guess you could say it took me about 4 years but really it only takes me a few hours to write a song. The rest of the time I was out drinking and experiencing life. If I wasn’t, I wouldn’t really have anything to write about now would I?

Q: If was in the streets and you came up to me with your latest release to try and sell it to me, what would you say? What major points would be in your sales pitch?!!

A: I would never do that. In fact, when people DO come up to me in the street and try to force me to buy their album without me ever hearing them spit I say to them “Listen, I’m a rapper too. A better one. Good luck with that.” Then they usually give it to me for free. And I throw it out.

Q: What would you consider to be your biggest track to date?

A: ‘The Storm’ was a pretty big song for me. That joint made a LOT of noise for me back in 06′. People always remember “We should hang the president with the American flag”.

Q: Being totally honest, do you still buy music? If so where do you get your CD’s from?

A: Yeah I still buy music. At shows. If it’s someone I support like Jedi Mind Tricks or AOTP or any of my Rebel Armz fam I’ll always cop their CD at a show. Or if I’m impressed by a new artist I see at a show I’ll cop it..

Q: Do you like any other styles of music outside your genre?

A: Most definitely. Metal, hardcore, blues, jazz, some drum n bass etc.. I listen to MAD music..

Q: So how can promoters book you for shows and what does your live show entail?

A: Promoters can hit me up directly at my email Nightwalkeracl@gmail.com or contact my manager Matt Charette at Matt@Redphonerecords.com My live show entails me just generally killing shit. I usually get the crowd pretty amped up and I think my live performances are better than my recordings.

Q: Do you think illegal downloads are killing the music industry or does it help artists to get out there?

A: Steve Jobbs killed music.

Q: Good luck for the future. Anything you want to add before you go?

A: Thanks. I appreciate Y’all taking the time out to hear what I have to say. Oh, and buy shit.
