Iron Wolf Czure aka the GodKhemikal is a progressive hiphop and funk artist, raised in Dallas, Texas. He combines trippy, dream like tracks with powerful, raw, emotional vocals and rhythms.
He was was born in 1989, in Munich, Germany, started playing instruments at the age of 12, started producing music at the age of 16 and hasn’t stopped since.
“Living and learning is the motto.”
Iron Wolf has worked with artists such as Redi Highknights, Ronin Monks, Chaotic Logic, CVS the Abstract, Daddie Poe, Cza NME, Abomination Colossal, Robby Ratchet, S.M.I.L.E, Carpe Diem Entertainment and the Bones Culture Collective.
“…the culture of hip hop is a connection like no other. It’s an honor to really be recognized in the underground as a true hip hop producer from the south.”
What got me into music? “…two things. The hypnotizing style of late 70′s to late early 90′s rock, hip hop, jazz and northern soul and funk classics. Even though I was born in 1989, I would always hear this liberating rebelious music that my mom would play this music whenever she got a chance. One thing I noticed about music was that it inspired me to do things other than music, like be physically active, talk to a girl I liked, read books and so on.”
What drew me to hip hop? ” I would have to say the power to create whatever it is I wanna create and at the same time being able to inspire. Music frees the soul.”
My favorite artist, “…would have to be between Mos Def and MF Doom. Both of those cats are talented and they both know how to keep it simple and at the same time still make you think about what it is they are saying. As far as producer, I can’t decide between Iggy Higgins of Redi Highknights and Madlib. They eat man and I’m talking about full meals hahaha!”
If I wasn’t making hiphop, I’d be “…making disco funk or jazz. It’s really how I started out. A lot of people don’t know that I started out playing instruments. From there I went into classical, funk, jazz, techno, dubstep then back around to hip hop. But if anything man, the disco like that classic shit. Something people can groove to.”
My dream project, “is to have a feed the world tour with a bunch of cool emcees, singers, DJ’s and producers. It would be dope to tour with those individuals that would give their time out to give or pitch in for free concerts around the world and every place we stop at we feed every hungry family or individual that is not so fortunate. We’re in the same struggle and if I had millions I would not have any problem at all participating in such a charity.”
How do you feel about techno taking over hiphop? “I enjoy some techno and trance, but a great man once taught me, everything changes and grows. To me I feel like I can enjoy electronic vibes but I cant say that it is really that great. But rome wasnt built in a day. Those that make this music are doing the same thing, creating. I think that people should also take a look on what exactly they stand for when putting this out and moat important of all, keep it real.”
What inspires me, “…all comes from how I’m feeling and my environment as well. Even from things that don’t even make a sound. Sometimes I try to speak for things like plants, trees, animals. Note my name Iron Wolf. Those words have meaning but are from an origin other than the English language. A lot of times I find myself reaching for that essence and the music that you hear is what comes out. Defintely like a spiritual or soulful connection of sorts.”
“…the artist that has pushed me the most is Rodan of Monsta Island Czars. Actually that whole group is just raw and they really inspire me to come hard or dont come at all. It’s all or nothing.”
“It all comes in the heat of the moment. I make at least two beats a day. There will be times like now where I’m busy collab’ing, writing lyrics or networking. I rarely sleep haha! But there are times during the day where I’d read or just rest it up and relax. Depends on how I feel ’cause exhaustion can sneak up on you very quick. I’m sure you feel me there Ben! hahahaha!”
Iron Wolf Czure is currently working on the “Iron Godz” mixtape and the “Iron Armor” LP. They will star Iron Wolf Czure and other various artists. Also in the works is the “God Khemikal” instrumental album- consisting of more than 40 instrumentals for your enjoyment. Expect all these to drop later this year.
“…the God Khemikal instrumental album will be out by April. I hope to have the Iron Godz mixtape done by this spring and the Iron Armor LP by summer.”
