Pop-Punk Silver Linings Form in "child support"

Rass Limit, born Ramon Manolo Stoops, is a Germany based Hip-hop artist focusing his attention on the Pop Punk scene.

The 23-year-old’s passion for Hip-hop started at a young age when he came in touch with American music of the ’90s. Being ultimately inspired by the genre, he took it upon himself to make his musical creations. Today he takes numerous influences into the songs he creates by channeling old and new sounds, a Punk rooted sway, as well as Alternative Rock and Hip-hop.

Collaborating with Berlin-based Post-Hardcore trio Future Palace, Rass Limit brings his fan base the mind-altering sounds of “child support.” A single that glistens a light on the theme of being held back by the ones who love you the most in your lifetime. Transitioning from his Hip-hop roots, the progressive edge radiated in this energy-fueled single captures the chaos that can brew within a family setting that plunges into a lack of support.

The reverberated vocalization of Rass Limit sets into the composition in a soothing manner that stimulates your sense with anticipation. As the lush guitar riffs continue to flood the arrangement in a sequence of hopefulness, the instrumentation ramps up as the vigor displayed by both Rass Limit and Future Palace expand into the unleashing of any bottled-up emotions that once ate away at their being.

With the lyrical content stewing in a pot of pent-up aggression, not all is cloudy in the message that these artists portray. Showing their audience that they always have the stars to reach for permanently lines this masterpiece of an anthem in silver bliss.

Rass Limit is making himself right at home in the genre of Pop-Punk with “child support.” Keeping him on our radar, we’ll have to take this track in as it coasts on replay.

Congratulations on the crossover of genres, and the release of “child support.” What inspired you to venture into the route of Pop-Punk versus the Hip-hop roots that you know?

Growing up to bands and artists like Blink-182, Sum 41 and Nirvana really helped me find my current style. In my teenage years, I mostly listened to 90s east coast rap like Nas, Mobb Deep, and Biggie. I was basically just listening to that while wearing baggy clothes and Mobb Deep t-shirts. Then I discovered the new age of hip-hop which inspired me to cross punk elements with today’s hip-hop. But I always loved the storytelling in 90s hip-hop songs so I took that part into my songs.

We love the colossal sound of Future Palace collaborating with you on “child support.” How did this collaboration come to be?

My manager basically hit up the band and they were excited to collaborate. Maria, the front singer, could really relate to the song since she had experienced similar things in her life.

Could you please share a glimpse of what it was like working with one another to bring the larger-than-life soundscape of this song to life?

It was completely different and new to me to work with a successful band like Future palace on such a meaningful song. It was like sharing a story with your closest friend and realizing they went through the same problems.

Moving forward in your art, what can your audience expect to hear from your work?

To stay true to me and to try different styles, mixing genres would be on top of my list. Basically, bring back old stuff but also trying new stuff. Music is always changing so go with the flow and don’t stop.
