a Selfie with Andre Martel
1. Your original stage name was Himself the Majestic, but now you go by your government name, Andre Martel. Why the change of heart?
That’s not my government name but I’ma make it that. I changed it because I wanted to use something people can easily identify me with and I thought HTM was corny.
2. Your crew, Nature Boys, is made up of a lot of dope artists. How’d you guys all link up?
We formed the Nature Boys by accident sort of. It all started with Shadowrunners, then we linked wit DC and later Twon, Nano and them. We were friends first then it became the music.
3. Some might not know about your day job in the gaming industry. Tell us a bit about that.
I used to work as a tester, I got a degree in game art & design. I fucken love video games almost as much as I love music. Sadly I don’t work in games anymore : (
4. What’s the next move for Shadowrunners (w/ Froskees), as well as for your solo career?
Shadowrunners is on hiatus for a while. Me and Fro making music together all the time but just doing our own thing solo no group name. I’m dropping 2 solo albums and seeing were it takes me.
5. Any plans to cross your love of videos games with your love of music at all in the future?
I would love to curate the music of a game or even score it somehow. That’d be nuts.
6. Anything else you’d like to add?
Gott learn to be eternal in life, beyond earth.
