On The Q&A Tip with Vaitea

On The Q&A Tip with Vaitea

Psykhomantus: Welcome to the On The Q&A Tip. First things first, Can you tells us who you are and what you do?

Vaitea​: Hi, thank you for having me here. My name is Vaitea. I've been actively involved into the italian and french Hip Hop scene at many levels: mostly as an mc, but also as a dj, vinyl collector, radio host, journalist, events creator, promoter, translator, graffiti writing fan, b-boying admiror, hip hop aficionada, analog philosopher, sneaker addict, and probably more...

Psykhomantus: How did you get to be introduced to this art called Hip Hop?

Vaitea​: In Milan, where I grew up, it was all very underground. A schoolfriend of mine was hanging out with the Muretto breakers, a historical italian Hip Hop spot. I was already writing poems and songs at that time, always loved rhymes. One day she told me there was a song I needed to hear. It was I Need Love by LL Cool J. A total revelation! I knew right away that was gonna be my thing for life. So I started freestyling and writing my raps. Later, through some writers at school, I got to meet the main actors of the Italian Hip Hop scene and, through the years, to collaborate with many of them.
I was also very attracted by the fact Hip Hop music was played ( and scratched ) on vinyl. I've been a record junkie since my early youth. But, most of all, I fell in love with the spirit of unity and happiness, but also the challenge and healthy confrontation you could find at jams.

Psykhomantus: You known as a rapper but you also DJ, which out of the two do you think is your strongest force and why?

Vaitea​: I feel like I am an entertainer, and both mcing and djing complete me as an artist. As I was saying, I started buying records before becoming an MC, but I started freestylin' way before rocking decks. I also approached scratch in 2007, me n my friend had a crew called the Chirpleaders! lol
Probably my main dimension is on stage with a mic in my hand, I guess it's easier to communicate and express who I am through my own rhymes and songs. You know, mcs and their egoes... ;) On the other hand, through djing, I have discovered a much more generous way to entertain people, which has taught me a lot, I perceive it as a different way of storytelling, of taking people into your trip, your own interpretation of the culture, like every other discipline of Hip Hop.

Psykhomantus: You are now signed to the record label BBE. How did you hooked up with them?

Vaitea​: I randomly met Lee Bright from BBE, at dj Vadim and Greg Blackman's "Hartley and Wolfe" album presentation ( wicked album, by the way! ). I was spinning at a place nearby and had my record bag with me. We talked for a bit and he gave me some promo cds. Months later, when my album was finished, I wrote him to have a honest feedback on my work... n the rest is Herstory ,)

Psykhomantus: Can you tell us How long did it take to make the album "Word Citizen"?

Vaitea​: It took me quite a while to find the right producer for my project. Once I connected with parisian producer Gyver Hypman ( who had formerly worked with Saian Supa Crew ) we started working on it right away. I was living in Milan and he was in Paris, so this obviously required some patience. Same thing for the mixing with Eddie Sancho, the historical NYC engineer who has worked on many of my favorite artists' albums ( Gangstarr, Jay-z, Nas, Krs One, MOP... just to name a few ). In total, I'd say a couple of years, then there were release times.

Psykhomantus: How long have you been living in the UK for?

Vaitea​: About two years now. London is a very cosmopolitan city, which makes me feel at home.

Psykhomantus: Can you name 5 rappers you rate and why?

Vaitea​: AG such a perfect flow, the real meaning of "less is more" to me.

KRS One because he's Krs. Ah, 'n

Busta Rhymes too, because he's Busta.

DJ Lugi my favorite italian mc, dj and producer. His beats are funky, rhymes are dope, flow is fresh and he's always smiling.

BLACKBOUL' aka Greg Frite from Triptik, my favorite french group. Amazing lyrics and style.
I also wanna mention Essa and Funky DL in the Uk, really appreciate both of them.
Mhhh but I should also quote Lady of Rage, one of the most underrated mcs ever...and Tracey Lee and his many faces...and Pharcyde, all of them.... and, what, you thought I wasn't gonna say Missy or Lauryn Hill? ......ahahaha ok, there's many more than 5.

Psykhomantus: Can you name one song you wish you written by another artist?

Vaitea​: Besides any Bob Marley song and many jazz standards,

"Respiration" by Blackstar

pure poetry.

Psykhomantus: My favourite question. Is there a Rapper or DJ you feel that should just give it up (Don't be shy now. Lol!)?

Vaitea​: I think that any artist who is not feeling true to his/her art anymore should consider giving up. And then get rid of that idea, get back on his/her feet and go back to work, with a honest soul and a strong spirit. We never stop learning. Staying humble is the key.
( That said, a lot of the current mainstream hip hop leaves me perplexed. Lol! )

Psykhomantus: Last question. What will we be expecting in the future from you?

Vaitea​: More music! I think I will integrate more italian and french in my next release, as I already do in my live shows. Of course, there will be international collaborations, too ...stay tuned! Oneluv Visionbombing crew! Peace out !

The single Chanthem is from her album "Word Citizen" released on BBE earlier in 2014 and is featured on VisionBombing Season 2 Episode 6. ( under construction )

On The Q&A Tip with Junia-T

Psykhomantus: Welcome to the UK and to the Q&A tip. Before we start. Can you tells us who you are, what you do and tell us what you do?

Junia T: What's up y'all. The name is Junia-T and I'm an emcee/producer from Toronto.

Psykhomantus: When and how did you fall in love with Hip Hop?

​Junia T: I could say the music found me in the late 80s. When I first heard De La's 'Me Myself And I' everything changed for me.

Psykhomantus: What inspires you to write your rhymes and to make your beats

​Junia T: Living inspires me to make music. From the vibe that pushes me to write something to the tunnel vision I get when chopping a sample. What I went through that day surely brought me to a point needing to create.

Psykhomantus: Can you break it down to us and explain who are the featured artist on your album Eye See You?

​Junia T: While working on 'Eye See You' I was blessed to work with a league of talented artists. As far as the heads who added to the soundscape I had Marlon James (bass guitar) Octavio Santos (Trumpet) Kiercy Rand (Keys) HMLT (Keys). Voices on the tape are Little Simz, Emerson Brooks, pHoenix, LordQuest, Franc Grams, Jessie Reyez, Kemi, Tassnata, Yancy Deron & Lizzie Nightingale. Pretty heavy cast when you look at it. Surely was a big learning experience for me as a producer.

Psykhomantus: Can you tell us How long did it take to make the album Eye See You?

​Junia T: The project took about 2 years to make. A lot of living went in this body of work.

Psykhomantus: How did you feel when your first seen your video on VisionBombing?

​Junia T: Crazy feeling actually! I had never seen my video cut up or blended like that. Also the over blend is dope so I appreciated being in the mix.

Psykhomantus: Can you name one song you wish you written by another artist?

​Junia T: Kinky Reggae by Bob Marley

Psykhomantus: Can you name 5 producers you rate and why?

​Junia T: - Dilla - For many reasons but mainly for how diverse his sample selection was.
- Elaquent - The studder and lay back drums are too much!
- Madlib - He's a true selector. Has chunes mans dem just don't have.
-Slakah The Beatchild - All of his basslines are crazy.
-LordQuest - Always heavy with the drums

Psykhomantus: My favourite question (Me being a trouble maker) Is there a Rapper you feel that should just put the mic down?

​Junia T: Too many to mention.

Psykhomantus: Last question. What will we be expecting in the future from you?

​Junia T: More music and more music. There are no rules to this so don't expect me to follow any.

Junia-T ft. Kemikal - Sky Is Falling is featured in VisionBombing Season 2 | Episode 5

"Valley Of Eric Lau's Sound" mixed by Psykhomantus

"Valley Of Eric Lau's Sound" mixed by Psykhomantus

It's been a while since I've made a mix for mixcloud, that being said with all the VisionBombing projects, Sneaker Festivals, resurfacing my Drunken Juggles projects, and doing gigs in between where do I find the time. Well! I wasn't really in a making a mixtape mood until I came across this Asian brother at the October VisionBombing Live gig at London's venue Silver Bullet.
Mr. Dex introduced me to the Asian man himself, it was Eric Lau. Me being me I didn't put the two together as I just looked at him as if he was just a normal dude who just came to vibe out at our gig that knew Dex. So I asked him what does he do, not realising that I've got half of this mans work on my computer and a few vinyls at home with his name on it. What's even worse, it clicked in my mind 3 days later on who he was (A Wah' Mi Dah Pon). Anyway, I started to dig out some of his stuff to clear my vision as I remembered asking him that night what stuff have you done. He did say that he's made some music for Hawk House, again silly me didn't acknowledge my two favourite joints from that group were produce by him (Shoot me now). After that, I was like, fuck it. I'm going to put a tribute mix together of Eric Lau. 
Why? Why the fuck not. Plus I feel that I owe it to the man. So if you've enjoyed my mixes of "The Cookie Soul Remixes", "Electric Relaxation Vol 1"
or "The Adventures Of DJ Jazzy Jeff" then you'll enjoy this.

"Valley Of Eric Lau's Sound" mixed by Psykhomantus is a tribute mix of Eric Lau's productions Which features Guilty Simpson, Gwen Bunn, Fatima, Hawk House, Kaidi Tatham, Olivier Daysoul, Rahel and Tawiah.

This lil dude could beatbox and everything i can’t even think of his name my momma had took a picture of me & him but my lil sister drew all over it with a crayon and ripped it up.

PiKaHsSo: On the cool Tahiti came up with that idea after we was in this popular rap group down here in Dallas called PPT everyone started treating us like we had rabies or we was the old rappers in the plastic bubble, so we said hey man i can look at these dudes in they eyes and tell they think we are old washed up & done lets do something to trip the whole world out. So i took Leave iT To Beaver old episodes and redid it and Snuggles The Fabric Softner Bear and made it as vulgar, raw and offensive as i possibly could. Then Tahiti sends me Fat Albert Episode 0 Prince Fat Albert Where He had the Fat Albert Character talking with British faux English accents i was like man thats funny as hell then he send me Fat Albert Episode 1 Who Shot Mudfoot & it was raw, polarizing, offensive, avante garde, insane and dope i was like wow thats so damn ill. I thought it was doper than my silly Leave It To Beaver & Snuggles The Fabric Softner idea somehow my boy Bavu Blakes tells me about Twitter and that i should start a account to get it out to a lot of people so i start my @PiKaHsSo twitter account and i blast out that Fat Albert Who Shot Mudfoot Epidsode The One & Only Erykah Badu see’s it and starts talking about it then Questlove of The Roots sees its then it just got so damn crazy over night my God. Honestly i looked in my inbox and i had bout 300 to 400 followers on twitter over night and people was calling me talking like Fat Albert Laughing and stuff and asking me how did i get on I’m like i didn’t do that that Fat Albert N The Hood caused internet mayhem and its all because Bavu telling me to start a twitter, Erykah Badu talking bout and Questlove giving us a cosign saying we are giving the Boondox a lil competition. We had no idea that lil parody was gone do that to this day people come up to me quoting the lines and asking me about the J DiLLA Beats in the Backgrounds me & Tahiti are some Dilla Heads so we did that to pay homage to him. We even premiered The New Slum Village feat Marsha Ambrosia on one of The Episodes they had a manager named Scrap Dirty who turned them on to us & he had us saying man peep the new Slum Village i get bubbles in my stomach thinking of all the media attention we got from that silly stuff me & Tahit did just being dumb.

PiKaHsSo: My favorite performance is performing in front all those people at a Dallas Mavericks game being on the Jumbo Tron and getting interviewed by legendary sports caster Chris Arnold in the middle of a stadium of thousands upon thousands of screaming fan. Truthfully i got to thank Mark Cuban for making all that happen i remember chilling with him at the radio station and coming down stairs after the interview with the city knowing my name. Kids new us we did interviews on all the news networks, was featured on our video getting played man thank u Mark Cuban & Paul Monore of The Dallas Mavericks. Alan Cohen Of for making that happen y’all changed my life & i will forever thank y’all for that.

Psykhomantus: Dangerous Question Is there an Rapper you feel that should just give it up?

PiKaHsSo: Dangerous Question hmmm honestly as crazy and zany as i may appear i hate to be cruel, mean, hurtful to someone or they dreams its not that im scared to say someones names its just that when i die i would hate to be like wow i said some hateful stuff they may make someone feel bad about they music. Yes its rappers out there who’s music i don’t like like its a lot of rappers who don’t like mines but to tell someone to give up just aint me because its something out there for everyone. To be honest some people have gotten mad at me because i think Drake is a dope rhyme spitter like its something wrong with thinking he can rap cause he can. But nobody should give up cause someone tells you to that makes me wanna do it more & i like to meet the person who can tell me i can’t

Psykhomantus: Last question. What will we be expecting in the future from you?
