GG Magree is a Deja Rever

From Ho99o9 to Foo Fighters

Also this week:

theOGM of cover stars Ho99o9 said of their sound that, “It’s grown tremendously, from the sound and from not touring to touring all over the world. Also, just building new relationships and being exposed to new sonics. When we started, we were just on some straight punk/thrash rap – that was our whole vibe. Just touring over the years, we learned so much. So now, when you listen to this album, it’s still chaotic but it’s a little more cohesive in terms of just working with one producer. So I’m very excited about it, and we’ve come a long way.”

Of new album Skin, he said: “I guess it’s just timing and fate, and shit. We talk about this stuff because it’s happening and we’re all in it together, and the album is not a politically charged album per say, but it just happened that it timed with this stuff. I feel like it’s almost our duty to keep people afloat and aware to the energy that’s going on. Sometimes we all get lost in partying and going to the bars, vibing to that shit, when there’s real shit going on. Our album gives you a hint that the government is still fucked up and I’m still not OK. Then there are moments in there to chill and smoke some weed, and reflect on what’s going on, maybe come up with a better plan than just raging. Sometimes, just going out and smashing shit isn’t the best solution. So it’s about being smart and being unapologetic about who you are and what you want to do. Fucking roll with that shit.”

In “Not Another DJ,” GG Magree said of new single “Deja Reve,” that: “One of my favorite directors is Eli Roth, who wrote and directed the movie Hostel. I’ve been obsessed with it ever since I first saw it. Eli also said one of my favorite quotes ever, ‘I’ve always been mesmerized by the idea that there’s no such thing as evil, it’s all basically your own point of view.’ Thus became ‘Deja Reve.’ Déjà-rêvé translates to ‘already dreamed,’ have you ever had Déjà vu? It’s like that but from a dream and I have dreams every single night! So this is a constant in my life.”
