Konsequence: “Being an artist nowadays does not only mean being great at what you do.”
Interview with Konsequence, recordJet Passenger of the Month in August 2015
Who and what are you?
How and why did you start making music?
I wanna bring life to something greater than I can imagine it to be.
How and why did you end up at recordJet?
It is an easy and effective way to share what I create.
Which music do you like to listen to privately?
No genre limit: Jamie XX, the Weeknd, J. Cole …
What do you do when you’re not making music?
Thinking about the next step.
You are very active in the music industry. What are the biggest fault and the greatest thing (in your opinion) about the music industry today?
Being an artist nowadays does not only mean being great at what you do. You have to expand your limits and be the best in a lot of ways.
Have you ever written a song you aren’t proud of anymore? Which one?
I am a perfectionist and of course your creative output is at a somewhat level. But if I would think about literally all the songs and sketches I wrote and produced, I would get a headache. Obviously, the more recent the work is the more you can identify your current mindset with it. Every artist telling you differently is lying.
Who are your heroes and why?
Every single person that comes or is in my life and inspires me.
What is your best tip for young, talented and unknown artists?
Think about yourself, think about the best in the game. Can you compete? If not, try breaking boundaries. If so keep breaking boundaries.
What was the first and most recent album you bought?
Miguel’s Wildheart is a phenomenal record.
If you had the real recordJet at your disposal for one day, where would you go, and why?
This August, I will release an exclusive EP in Japan, so I would take the plane there.
