001. First of all please tell us how did you meet each other and what did you guys do before created the Snowgoons group ?
SICKNATURE-I used to do beats and rap on my own. Production wise I mostly worked with local acts, but had already worked with international artists when meeting DJ Illegal. I met DJ him in Copenhagen when I was the opening act at a Necro show. At that time I had just pressed up â€śHoney Im Homeâ€ť (2007) and I gave Illegal a copy. A couple of weeks earlier I had been to New York to promote my album and I saw the name Snowgoons everywhere. So when he told me that he was from that group I knew who he was talking about right away. He bumped my cd in the van that night and liked it. We did the same style in music and had already worked with some of the same artists, so it was just a matter of time before we started collaborating.
ILLEGAL-That is how me & Sick met, but I started the Snowgoons together with Det a few years back. We started out as mixtape djÂ´s and produced our own remixes. From there we ended up producing songs for other artists.Â
Â SICKNATURE & ILLEGAL-We formed Goon MuSick as a platform for our own music and our friends. Nowadays, its easier to release your music yourself and that way be in charge of everything. We just want to release real music in our own way.Â
Â 003..Snowgoons already done lot of collaborations with Germans, Hungarians and many more from Europeâ€¦ What about US mc`s ? On your albums heard lot of big names from the Hip Hop. Mc`s Edo G, Sean Prize Reef The Lost Cauze ,Outerspace..and many many more ..Which one was your favourite track or funniest jam in studio or trip? Â
Â SICKNATURE-I had a really good time chilling with Outerspace, Reef & Jus Allah when we recorded the Snowgoons & Reef The Lost Cauze album at the homie Even IfÂ´s crib in Germany. It was a real good time. It was also very cool when I was at Ill BillÂ´s crib in Brooklyn where he first played me â€śThe Hour Of Reprisalâ€ť before it was completely done.Â
Â ILLEGAL-There are so many good stories but one of the craziest is the recording for the Edo G song Nuthin You Say. We did that on the way to the airport in the bus. We had a whole setup in the bus and did this song last minute before he left Europe.
004..What you doin at the moment ? I mean like any new project ,album or video ?
SICKNATURE-Im currently working on my new album that is scheduled for a release next year on Goon MuSick. Other than that we have a lot of new projects coming out on Goon MuSick this year and the nextâ€¦
Â ILLEGAL-Weâ€™re about to drop a german album with our friend Marph but also the Goondox album which consist of PMD and Sean Strange is almost done and ready to launch soon. So stay tuned.Â
005..Who are you absolute heroes? The most influential artist now, and 10-15 years ago?
Â SICKNATURE-I grew up listening to Public Enemy, Beastie Boys, Ice Cube and Rakim. I started listening to a lot of hip-hop in generalâ€¦ Cypress Hill, M.O.P., Onyx, House Of Pain, Wu-Tang, Gangstarr etc. So I guess I was inspired by most of the 90Â´s hip-hop. I still listen to a lot of hip-hop from that era. But some of the new releases from artists like Immortal Technique, Sean Price, Ill Bill etc. inspire me a lot too. The list of newer dope underground releases is longâ€¦
Â ILLEGAL-I also came up in the 90s and I am happy for that. So name any 90s real hip hop group like Wu Tang, Nas, Mobb Deep, DITC, EPMD and all them. Now I still listen to them and get inspired by their music but also there are many new artists like Reef, Term, Dope DOD and so many others. Hip Hop in 2000 also expended worldwide and every country got there dope artists like Prop Dylan from Sweden, Soulkast from france or Killakikitt from Hungary just to name a few.Â
006..What was your first Cassette,Cd or Record you bought? How big is your music collection now ?
SICKNATURE-My first record was Public EnemyÂ´s â€śIt Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Backâ€ť. My record collection is not huge, but I still have someâ€¦
ILLEGAL-My very first record I listened to as an album was Run DMC â€śtougher Than Leatherâ€ť but my first own record I bought was a 2 Live Crew single called â€śThrow The Dâ€ť. My record collection was almost 10.000 vinyls before I sold most of it. It was a big step to sell them but I had to do it cause I wanted to invest in my studio and get the Snowgoons thing started.Â
007..Which one is your all time favorite Hip Hop record?
SICKNATURE-Its too hard to mention what my favorite albums are because I have been affected by a LOT of hip-hop during my life. But SOME of my favorites include Public Enemy â€“ â€śIt Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Backâ€ť, Nas â€“ â€śIllmaticâ€ť, Non Phixion â€“ â€śThe Future Is Nowâ€ť, Notorious B.I.G. â€“ â€śReady To Dieâ€ť, Cypress Hill â€“ â€śBlack Sundayâ€ť, Wu-Tang â€“ â€śEnter The 36 chambersâ€ť – to name a few!
ILLEGAL-I guess I have to go with Nas â€“ Illmatic and also David Axelrod â€“ Songs Of Experience
008..You guys have lot of positive feedback from around the world have you got any advice would you give to up and coming Mc`s or DJ`s? Because so many good and talented youngster give up to early and they do something different..
Â SICKNATURE-My best advice is to be yourself and do what you wanna do. If you really wanna keep doing music, giving up is not an option.
Â ILLEGAL-You have to believe in yourself. I know it sounds old but when I started I was pretty much the only one that believed in what I am doing. Also you have to be creative. My head is wrapped around the music 24/7 and just can not imagine a life without the music. It gives me power and this way I can give it back to the music so it is about loving the music and culture. If you have no love for it you will never succeed.Â
Â SICKNATURE-Performing at Hip-Hop Kemp is always a pleasure.
ILLEGAL-Hip Hop Kemp is really the best festival in Europe and it is always a good vibe over there. I visit the festival since 9 years now and it is always fun. I have the feeling that the time is standing still a bit at the Kemp and it is not so commercial as most other festivals. We are getting famous for our crazy after party in the hangar when everybody comes out and freestyle with us.
010.Funny but…Will you ever retire?
SICKNATURE-I will never stop making music.
ILLEGAL-When I am dead and gone. How can I retire from my life!
011..How you switch of your brain? What you doin if you don`t write rhymes or if you don`t standing behind the decks just simple out in the street? Chill out times.
SICKNATURE-I rarely relax. I have a 9-5 to take care of too. And as soon as Im home, I have music to work on. If I do have a little sparetime, I relax when visiting my family and friends.Â
ILLEGAL-It is really hard for me not to do music. I am so much surrounded by all this cause it is my life. I donâ€™t even need to take a break. I love it to the fullest and what ever this Hip Hop is it is me and everything I represent. That includes my family and my friends
