gigmit: Hi Haas, you started making music when you were 14, uploading clips to YouTube of your first experiments with freestyling. Now you create music that is sonically pleasing and driven by emotion. What do you miss about in-person performances?
Haas: One of the best parts of making music is getting to play it live. I spend a lot of time imagining the live performance as I craft the song. I miss the hours of rehearsing to create a show that’s explosive and memorable and the challenges that come with it! Most importantly, I miss watching people dance to the music, that I made in my bedroom.
Due to the pandemic-related upswing of live streams, we now know even more bedrooms – also of stars. How important do you think celebrity musicians are in the industry?
How political should music be?
I find this subject really fascinating, music plays such an important part in the narration of society. Politics play a huge part in all our lives so it would be fair to say ‘politicising music ’ is a natural occurrence. It’s also very important for how it can be used to send a powerful message, that can inspire real change. A bias of political opinion has the potential to be disruptive and I morally don’t agree with it (like how the news shouldn’t have a bias in my opinion). It’s something that comes with the territory. Music is at the core of freedom of speech and shouldn’t be censored.
What can we expect from you in the future?
Thank you very much, Haas!
