Setting 2019 off right with January’s FEATURED GLOBAL TALENT
Where do you hail from?
We are both currently living in Germany. Micheal aka Godbody is originally from Annapolis, Maryland and Benita aka Universe was born and raised in Germany.
How did your artist name come about?
At that time we have found out that our ancestors are the true people that the bible speaks of. That´s why we chose that name
How long have you been making music?
Godbody has been making music for over 25 years. Universe has started working on music a few years ago.
How would you describe the sound around your music, the background/inspirations behind it?
Our music is there to empower people, to lift them up and also to move them to think. Some topics are more serious and others are more of a happy vibe. No matter what the vibe is, we make sure people can dance to our music and feel great while doing it.
How do you spend your time outside of the business?
Since we are the CEO´s of Booze Reed GbR, which is a combination of our record label Trustnobody Records and our music publishing house The Tribe of Judah Music Publishing, Business actually never stops, its a 24 hour job. We combine it with our every day life that we have with our children.
What are your current thoughts of the music business in 2019?
On one hand it is not an easy business, because you need a lot of money in order to promote and sell your music. On the other hand it is also great because everything digital, meaning artists have many ways to distribute their music online and to reach potential fans via social media and other online platforms.
What have you got planned for the near future?
We have a lot of businesses that we are planning on establishing in the future. Some will have something to do with music and entertainment, and the rest will be businesses that go in different branches.
What inspires you when you make your music?
Our own life experiences and life experiences and situations from people that we know. Spreading the truth and sometimes provoking critical thinking are very important to us. We stay away from profanity in our songs, because we don´t want to feed people, especially the youth, toxic music.
What music are you bumping at the moment?
Honestly, we are too busy listening to our own songs and writing songs, that there is not a lot of space left for too many other artists. We sometimes listen to different music though like Reggae or underground artists.
Thanks for your time and we look forward to hearing more from you in future!
Keep looking out for us because we have more interesting new music that we are working on currently and this music is not the same as the dead Hip Hop that they are listening to today.
