The Soulful Supremacy Of Soul Supreme

April 2005

MVRemix: Who are your biggest influences?

Soul Supreme: DJ Premier, Stevie Wonder, and Kanye West.

MVRemix: Abortion. Pro-life or pro-choice?

Soul Supreme: Pro-choice. But, I don’t like that way of wording it. I don’t consider pro-choice being ‘Pro-death’.

MVRemix: Death penalty. For or against?

Soul Supreme: I am very much against it.

MVRemix: Where were you on the September 11th terrorist attack? How did you deal with it? How has it affected the music industry?

Soul Supreme: I was at home, studying. Since I’m not American and wasn’t in the U.S., it wasn’t as hard for me. Of course, it was shocking. I have no idea how it affected the industry, other than that, it temporarily allowed some worthless country singer to climb the charts.

MVRemix: How do you feel about the U.S. involvement in the Middle East?

Soul Supreme: I think we can all agree on that it’s more or less, a catastrophe.

MVRemix: Word association. I am going to say the name of a group, artist, or person and you say the first word that pops into your head. So, if I said ‘Public Enemy’, you may say ‘Revolution’ or ‘Fight The Power’. If I said ‘The Beatles’, you may say ‘Revolver’ or ‘Yoko Ono’. Okay?

MVRemix: Jurassic 5.

Soul Supreme: Retro

MVRemix: 50 Cent.

Soul Supreme: Hooks.

MVRemix: Eminem.

Soul Supreme: Decline.

MVRemix: Jay-Z.

MVRemix: Dead Prez.

Soul Supreme: Anger.

MVRemix: Pharycde.

Soul Supreme: Spike Jonze.

MVRemix: Phife Dawg.

MVRemix: Jamiroqaui.

Soul Supreme: Annoying.

MVRemix: O.C.

Soul Supreme: Back.

MVRemix: Gil-Scott Heron.

Soul Supreme: Voice.

MVRemix: George Bush.

Soul Supreme: Saddening.

MVRemix: What artists would you like to work with in the future, who you haven’t worked with yet?

Soul Supreme: There are so many. I really, really like what I’ve heard by Saigon, so far.

MVRemix: What is the biggest mistake you have made in your career?

Soul Supreme: I seriously don’t know. I don’t think I’ve made that many big mistakes in my career, so far. We’ll have to wait and see.

MVRemix: What advice would you give to an up and coming hip-hop producer?

Soul Supreme: Make beats. Lot’s of them.

MVRemix: What do you think hip-hop needs these days? What is hip-hop lacking?

Soul Supreme: More fun. I mean more, in the native tongues or Kanye West way, than ‘Rapper’s Delight’ or old school.

MVRemix: What song are you most proud of, production wise?

Soul Supreme: ‘TSNA.’

MVRemix: What remix are you most proud of?

Soul Supreme: ‘Got yourself…(remix)’ by Nas.

MVRemix: What CDs or LPs have been in your CD player or on your turntable recently?

Soul Supreme: At the moment, Beanie Sigel, Kitsune X, M.I.A., Headman, Antony and the Jonsons, Out Hud, Prefuse-73, Bloc Party and many, many more. I try to listen to as much new music as possible.

MVRemix: Favorite movies?

Soul Supreme: Hard question, from the top of my head, ‘Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind’, ‘Old Boy’, ‘Swingers’, ‘Twilight Samurai’, ‘Garden State’, and ‘Goodfellas’.

MVRemix: If you could remake any classic hip-hop song, what would you do it?

Soul Supreme: Very difficult question. I think something from Notorious BIG’s first album.

MVRemix: What do you do when you are incredibly stressed out?

Soul Supreme: I’m never that stressed out, but I love video games and books for relaxation.

MVRemix: What are some major misconceptions that people have of you?

Soul Supreme: That I’m American.

MVRemix: How do you think that you have matured, evolved, or changed?

Soul Supreme: That’s very hard to answer. I think the biggest difference, as a musician and producer, is that I’m more aware of the strengths and weaknesses I have now, as opposed to two years ago.

MVRemix: In hip-hop, what kind of styles of production do you see coming in the future?

Soul Supreme: I think there will be more of a mix of existing styles, like electronic stuff mixed with soul and funk samples.

MVRemix: What is in the future for Soul Supreme? Collaborations? Tours?

Soul Supreme: Right now, I don’t have anything in particular planned. But don’t worry, 2005 will see more of Soul Supreme!

MVRemix: Any final words for the people who will be reading this?

Soul Supreme: Buy anything you see with the name Soul Supreme written on it. And take care!
