Who and what are you?
Parisse. 20. Born and raised in Bietigheim-Bissingen, Germany. Member of the “PRØVOX” artist collective.
Parisse – how did you get that name? Tell us the story, please.
I like the aesthetics of how it is written. I look into the mirror and identify with the name. What’s more is that I’m German with Turkish/Arabic roots, but singing in English. I want to reach the entire planet. I think it’s just great.
How and why did you start making music?
My love for music is definitely my dad’s fault. From day one he allowed me to make noise and never complained if the sessions took longer than mom allowed. In primary school I started writing songs, playing the guitar and piano and taught myself English. In 2012, I met Cyrics who was a house producer at the time. I helped him understand that he doesn’t have to stick to the rules in his art. At some point Cy, my brother Preyesless and I started by covering a song, and 5 years later we started an entire project.
How and why did you end up at recordJet?
A friend of mine told me that recordJet helps me spread my music without a label. He was right. Many thanks to the internet, too.
Which music do you like to listen to privately?
AcidJazz, NeoSoul, Funk.
What do you do when you’re not doing music?
You are very active in the music industry. In your opinion, where’s the biggest fault and greatest strength in the industry today?
There are so many new artists, it’s hard to keep track of them. At the same time, this is the coolest thing about the music industry right now. Everybody can get their own platform and theoretically the entire world could listen.
Who are your heroes and why?
My mom, my dad and my little brother. They know why.
What was the first and latest album you bought?
Forever Starts Now. Forever Starts Now.
If you had the real recordJet at your disposal for one day, where would you go, and why?
Marvins Room Studios Los Angeles, just to gather some inspiration in these legendary rooms and of course to record my music. And if I really had the jet, I’d want to visit any island in Thailand without internet or wifi.
Any last words?
Thanks for the interview, Parisse.
