Interview: Production duo Earth2Tom talk new project 'One', A&R process, who their dream collabs would be and more!

Interview: Production duo Earth2Tom talk new project 'One', A&R process, who their dream collabs would be and more!

Tomfoolery beats and Charles the Earthman are the golden era sounding hip hop production force who are set to release one of the year's most exciting producer led hip hop projects! Their debut video 'Robotz' featuring YNR Productions' Confucius MC dropped earlier in May and they have recently dropped a lyric video for the impressive reinterpretation of the N Word! Check out what they had to say in this interview we held with Tom Foolery beats!

1. How did Earth2Tom first come about and who are the members?

Earth2Tom materialised at a random house party in South London - my friend Dan Potter (Warsnare) said “Oh, Charles makes hip hop, you should link up” … and we did. Earth2Tom is the production duo of Charles the Earthman and Tom Foolery Beats.

2. What spawned the concept for this project?

Initially we were just jamming and tryna learn thing from each other. The concept of making dope boom bap instrumentals was there from the beginning. We’re both quite keen on sampling and using drum pads to chop and trigger samples. Other elements such as an appreciation for warmth in sonics, off-kilter swing and subtle variations on a solid loop became key. At some point I enforced the concept of it being a positive, uplifting album and all the evil and moody tracks were swept aside. I also pushed home the idea of there being vocalists on the album as I had recently met a load of talented artists through doing the Connoisseurs of Hiphop radio show on Itch FM.

Interview: Janset talks shaking off 'good for a girl' label, spitting in Turkish and motive for new EP

Interview: Janset talks shaking off 'good for a girl' label, spitting in Turkish and motive for new EP

Following a solid 8 years in the game grafting hard as a progressive MC and artist, the London born and raised Janset is here with her new EP 'Keep it Humble', which follows last year's release on Fatback Records. Check this revealing interview we held where she discusses her ethnic heritage and how it has influences her lyrics, her approach to spitting over bass heavy beats, and how she deals with people shocked to see she's a girl that can actually spit! 

How would you describe the lane within the musical landscape which you're operating in?

I feel like you either create your own lane or the lane you’re in creates you. I’ve found that a lot of people find it difficult to classify the music I make, I think the process of doing that is pretty useless anyway..  Why must everyone fit into a designated category or a box? That’s just marketing tactics. I don't make music to be marketed, therefore, I'm trying to paint my own musical landscape where there is rawness and realness, where my observations and experiences can be understood through humorous flows and melodies.

Music that is sometimes full of bass, sometimes full of space. I make piano symphonies and rap over them with no beat sometimes, or dubstep, grime, hip hop, sometimes drum and bass, reggae (even more so with my live band now) and also make soundtrack music which is very spacey, unsettling/dark and ambient.. So I don’t know how to answer this really but what I do know is. Humans are layered souls and as an artist I like to focus on the layers. So I guess my musical landscape is vast, real and ever changing (Just like life.)

On 'dropping them bombs' you drop some foreign lyrics - what was the language you incorporated and were those significantly controversial to be translated?

That’s Turkish… my family were born and raised there however I'm originally half Chechnyan and half Circassion (which is basically in the same region, just different mountains) but speak Turkish rather than our own native language because my parents were raised there. So last year I was sitting around in my studio one day and writing bars (as you do) and, as I was writing for a producer/friend who lives in Istanbul, I thought it would be cool to include some Turkish words so the listeners could relate if they couldn’t understand anything else.

Then it dawned on me that If I wrote the whole sentence in one language and I could just keep rhyming the word at the end in another language (Turkish) and it would make sense to someone who is bilingual and also it changes the flow of the track so much. I love writing like this as it challenges and stimulates my mind so much. That’s how the bilingual rap came about.
