Sara Socas: “It seems that there is one way to be a good red and the rest are not acceptable” | INTERVIEW

Sara Socas (1997, Tenerife) has been the one girl in cockfighting for years. But she ran away. The hatred that she acquired on this self-discipline of improvised rap and her need to launch a solo mission as a singer led her to place an finish to that period.

Now simply printed TFN-MAD, an album during which he has featured rappers from the previous guard and that begins with a declaration of intentions: you criticize Abascal, immigration coverage and every thing you do not like about Spain as a rustic. Furthermore, in January he begins a tour together with his band, a gaggle of 4 girls with whom he might be in venues and live shows.

This album represents not directly a brand new starting, did that add strain?
Above all, a variety of frustration, which is one thing I’ve needed to study to handle. When folks started to know me extra it was as a result of in the identical month I went to La Resistencia and the video of a battle in Mexico went viral. Suddenly there was a variety of consideration, then there wasn’t as a lot, then there was an issue… Then I felt pissed off considering “now I’ll just launch this and there’s absolute silence” or “maybe there isn’t silence, but for something bad.” In the top, in case you are comfy with what you do, I feel you need to transfer ahead as a result of you’ll all the time have folks towards you. Especially contemplating that, though I think about myself a peaceful and well mannered particular person, I perceive that in battles I’ve been very irreverent and testicle topper.
In battles and in music. You begin the album with Spanish, a music the place you assault every thing you do not like about Spain from Abascal, to immigration coverage or the degradation of Health. Was it a declaration of intent?
Yes. In reality, I feel what was most tough for me in regards to the album was selecting the order of the songs. In the top I made a decision to place it first for that purpose. People come from figuring out a really crucial Sara, very loud and with out mincing phrases. I assumed: “I’m going to put that Sara at the beginning and then let them discover the others.”
Follow the robust and dedicated line of battles.
The factor is that I think about myself an individual dedicated to x issues and it solely comes out with regards to writing. Maybe I’m from the city and such, very redneck, however I do not see myself exhibiting off about chains and automobiles. I’ve a second-hand automobile from 2010, why ought to I hesitate?
But you go along with all of them. In the second paragraph you already say “let Abascal graze, enough of the façades”
When I used to be within the studio with Acción Sánchez, there was a second once I stopped as a result of I assumed: “I’m really losing my mind. It seems like I’m looking for controversy.” But he inspired me to do no matter I wished with out anybody telling me something. If it’s true that my father advised me: “Maybe if you didn’t name X media outlets or X personalities, the better.” But hey, happily they have not sued me. And, in the event that they sue me, effectively, all publicity is nice.
You have been speaking about Acción Sánchez and Rapsusklei, SFDK additionally collaborate on the album… How decisive has the help of “the old guard” of rap been?
It has been essential as a result of in the long run many doubts come up. Especially in my case, I’ve lived the whole hate of very polarized networks and opinions. You find yourself multiplying your impostor syndrome by a thousand. So once you see teams like Rapsus, Zatu or Óscar, who’re spectacular in addition to musicians and other people, it does offer you help. One of the issues that would have motivated me probably the most was when Kase O invited me to carry out at his end-of-tour live shows. That offers me just a little little bit of confidence and respect.
Have you ever felt in no man’s land? Not being a freestyler or a singer.
Yes, and it nonetheless occurs to me just a little. Let’s see, it appears foolish however the album is sort of a resume. It’s like, “Hey, this has my back.” Before, different musicians and producers requested me a variety of questions on whether or not I used to be nonetheless within the battles or not. In the top the album is the affirmation of the transition. But what am I going to let you know. I additionally stay a little bit of that “public character” factor. You can observe Sara Socas for the battles, for her music or just for the social messages.

Maybe I’m very pale however I do not see myself exhibiting off about chains and automobiles.

Was it an obligation to go away freestyle to make music and be taken significantly?
Yes. That’s additionally why I left it, along with psychological well being. I feel the longer you are in it free change is tougher. It has turn out to be so sporty that they not see you as a rapper who improvises however as an elite athlete. It’s like there are the athletes after which there are the rap folks, or music folks, actually.
Have you had such a foul time within the battles?
Yes, I’m not going to deceive you. I’ve been very screwed. But I’m additionally conscious of how lucky I’m, that I’m right here and I could make my music and play with a spectacular band. Fortunately I had by no means suffered bullying in my life, however I feel it has been like experiencing bullying. He hate It feels sturdy when it is vitally huge. I feel a variety of remedy can also be needed. Although sadly you need to have some cash to go to remedy. I hope that adjustments.
What do you assume makes these folks hate somebody a lot?
I feel his personal frustration. I do not know in the event that they really feel like victims of the system or one thing. I additionally consider that with social networks folks’s powers are unbalanced. The reality that somebody has one million followers and different folks submit issues that nobody reads has to make you’re feeling that you’ve got the correct to, no less than, give your opinion. I as soon as did an train and it appeared just like the haters have been the identical particular person. Like a child there with the picture within the mirror in black and white, overlaying his face, and from Real Madrid. That’s my anti-target. But hey, you deal with it with humor.
For you, artwork should essentially be vindictive?
No. I feel what I like is that it is so diverse. There are occasions when folks say: “No, music today is rubbish.” And I feel: “Wait, The yellow tractor o The yeye girl. I mean, excuse me for not having been in the music renaissance.” I perceive the place issues are going, however now there are additionally tremendous proficient folks doing every thing. If we have been all there saying all day our opinion on songs could be Twitter. And Twitter It’s horrible. So it higher not be like that.
And what’s your motivation?
Well, perhaps it is just a little egocentric however I’m ADHD. You begin issues after which you do not end them. The days are loopy. So each time I make music I discover that that day I really feel tremendous completed and really comfy with myself.

It appears there’s one method to be good purple and the remainder are usually not acceptable

What has been your biggest achievement with this album?
That I cowl many various issues with out dressing up as something. I’m very completely happy to seek out my sound. When you take pleasure in reggaeton, reggae or the rest, generally you assume “I don’t want to be fake.” And I really feel that what has come out has been real.
How do you assume your childhood and your loved ones setting have influenced your vindictive character?
I couldn’t let you know. The fact is that my father is a bit more like that and he has advised me that he had a extra revolutionary stage, a Canarian independence kind. But my mom by no means. It is to not get moist and passing. Then I have no idea. My brother and I are sugar cane staff, however I’m extra so. I feel it is as a result of I used to be a woman and the little sister. My mom says that since she was little she was touching her balls like: “why can my brother wear underwear in the summer and I can’t wear panties?” I’m positive I used to be born speaking and taking part in my balls.
What are you fascinated about now?
I feel I’m in probably the most contradictory stage of my life. Of considering that the world goes to shit and that we now have to take a place however on the similar time feeling that if I expose myself an excessive amount of to the information I find yourself having a brilliant poisonous temper. I’m conscious of issues that do not work, however how do you repair them? Surely I’m additionally a participant or confederate. Those obstacles. I additionally take into consideration seeing the gorgeous issues in life, treating folks politely, being assertive… Those fantasies which can be tough as a human being.
As a public determine and along with your approach of being, do you’re feeling obliged to all the time converse out and alter consciences?
It occurred to me. And additionally once you place your self lots you discover that the opposing aspect is, so to talk, ready so that you can say one thing and those that assume like you might be ready so that you can symbolize them. There was a time once I stopped as a result of I did not need to be criticized anymore. Also as a result of I really feel that though I do know issues about feminism, for instance, I’m neither a graduate nor an skilled. Those inconsistencies. Then I finished for some time as a result of I felt like I used to be failing. I do not know why, myself or others, however I felt like I used to be failing.
In a report we printed in regards to the political opinion of musicians, Juancho Marqués mentioned that he had stopped positioning himself a lot as a result of now with social networks it appears that you would be able to by no means change your thoughts. Has it occurred to you too?
Yes. I was like “the perfect feminist”, so to talk. And then analyzing some previous habits I assumed it was shady. So sure I agree. Now there’s a document of every thing. And an individual adjustments and makes errors. It additionally appears that there’s like one method to be good purple and the remainder are usually not acceptable. I do not know, we now have a thousand opinions on a thousand matters. We do not should agree on every thing and that is the fantastic thing about it. I’m not going to assume {that a} authorities is doing every thing proper or that an individual, if I’m a fan, is all the time going to be good.
