Interview with Gazzmo & Selina Sorger

Tell us about yourself, who are you and where do you come from?

Hey I‘m Chris, a 22 years old German pop-rap artist, songwriter and music producer based in Vienna.

How was your passion for music born? Who are your idols?

My dad was a popular musician here in my hometown and I‘ve always seen his passion. That inspired me a lot. So i started doing my own music in my cellar where he built up his old music studio. My songs are inspired by Cro and i love the beats from O.C..

What kind of music do you do?

My challenge is to mix german Hip Hop with Pop.

What is the most important song for you? What message do you want to convey to the listener?

There are two songs which are very important to me. The first one ‚Weil ich fühl’ is my most personal song. And the second one ‚Tausend Komplimente‘ means a lot to me because of a girl. The message i wanna convey to others is that life isn‘t always easy but there are people and things which can make bring you up again.

Why should a listener who doesn’t know you listen to your music?

I think it‘s important to write songs with message, which are important to me and probably can help others. And the nice and diverse beats which can make you happy or sad – depending on your mood.

What are your future projects? Where do you see yourself 5 years from now?

Next year i‘m gonna work on a album and wanna bring one music video per month. Also there are a few life shows planed. In 5 years i hope i can earn my own money with my hobby.
