OneHeadApart Releases a New song “Faster”

OneHeadApart brings an out-of-this-world sound that feels good to hear for every second on the new song “Faster”. Faster is a really special one to us. The track combines retro drums with a forwarding bassline and catchy synths. We love the 80s sound so much and wanted to create something radio-friendly at the same time. Everything works together to bring the title to life, to make sure we take in the full vision of meeting someone out of this world. The production has a sound that makes you feel like you’re walking on the moon, as you get to take in the soulful vocals, that deliver the writing with a blissful tone to make sure, it gives you a high like no other.

OneHeadApart is a german DJ and production duo consisting of Joël Körner and Tim Balbach.

Introducing J Menace: A Fast-Rising Musical Artist

J Menace is an upcoming Hip-Hop artist and songwriter that is gaining popularity very quickly, and on his way to becoming a superstar. Born and raised in Chicago, he has quickly accumulated thousands of followers on social media and is showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon.

Hello J Menace, Thanks for coming to Honk Magazine to talk about your career.

What 3 things does anyone starting in your industry need to know?

1: Have a plan. What do you want to do, and how do you want to do it?

2: Have people around you that you trust.

3: Be the hardest worker in the room.

What would you do differently if you were starting in your industry now?

I would spend my money much differently. You will lose money trying to figure out what and who works. That takes money, time and effort. There is no way around it. Imagine if you could skip that step….

Which people or books have had the most influence on your growth and why?

Book wise “Think and Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill. I’ve read that book 3 times and every time I learn something new. A great guide to having the proper mindset for growth. 

Too many people to name that had a ton of influence. However,  2 at the top would be 2Pac and my brother Leekwan. 2Pac because of how similar their lives were and how I could relate to his music. My brother because of the constant competition between us. It made me super competitive in all areas and nearly obsessed with growth.

What would you say is the #1 key to success in your music career?

The #1 would have to be consistent. There was a time when people said I didn’t have the look to rap…. I kept going. There was a time when people said I didn’t have the voice to rap… I kept going. Then it was I didn’t write good enough, pick the right production, or didn’t have the right type of funding. I never stopped, I pushed harder every time people denied me. Until I became undeniable.

Talk about the biggest failure you’ve had. What did you learn from it?

The biggest failure had to be not keeping a successful group I started together. The true turning point of my career was 2015. 

I had just opted out of a deal with Universal and I was tired of the industry. I saw what they did to make others successful and decided I would try to mimic the format. I came up with an idea to put together a group of talented rappers with established fan bases (Thad Lu, Goonie Da Godd, Mz. Legit, King Kwan). 

The purpose was simple….there’s strength in numbers. The name of the group ended up being R.U.M.O.R.S (Relying Upon Music Over Regular S**t). My strategy was to do 3 to 4 shows a week until the right people noticed us. It definitely worked! We went from paying to do shows and perform in competitions, to being paid to do shows or just make an appearance. We got all the way to having a deal on the table and unfortunately, due to internal conflict, we parted ways as a group. However, we remain close to this very day. Sidenote: We lost a member last year. Love live Floyd Steele aka Goonie Da Godd. People still talk about us. Especially in Chicago. I’m not where I am today without this group. If I could go back, I would have figured out a way to make it work.

What has been your biggest success story and why do you think it was a success?

My biggest success is my recently released album “A Night To Purge “. This is my best work to date and it has been received as such. From having more streams than all my previous albums combined in 1 month….to having the most viewed video (Chains) in my career. I think it’s a success because the timing is right. Sometimes it’s not just talent but timing. If you stay ready, when it’s your time, you’ll cease the opportunity. That is all I’m doing. 

What keeps you going when things get tough in the music industry?

The thing that keeps me going is my promise. As I’ve already stated, I lost a close friend in Floyd Steele A.K.A Goonie Da Godd last year. However, I also lost my older brother Tyrone Fisher last year. Both due to gun violence. Both of them believed in me. I made a promise to them that I would not let up until I majored in this industry. I will keep that promise.

What made you pursue being an artist full-time?

I wrote my first song in 8th grade. After everyone in my school started singing it, I was hooked. I was signed to my first label at the age og 16. I knew from that point on that this is what I wanted to do. 

Would you sign to a label?

I would if the deal is structured properly for sure. I’ve been in the industry a while. I know the pitfalls and the traps. It has to make sense on both ends or no deal.

Exclusive Interview: Rising Artist Bxndzszn

Hello Bxndzszn, Thanks for coming to Honk Magazine to talk about your career.

Tell us a little more about when you first got into music?

For starters, music has always been a part of my life but I really fell into creating music based on it being my way of expressing myself due to me being an introvert .

If you could describe your sound/style in one word, what would it be and why?

If I could describe my sound/style in one word it would be evolutionarily because as I age so will everything else.

What would you say to any aspiring recording artists who look up to your work?

Honestly this is a question that I can’t really answer because although there are things that I wish I was told… the fact that I did it for myself makes it more worth it, in my opinion of course!

Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”?

I’d recommend to them that breaks are very much needed and that mental health is very important.
