Calling All Sugar Daddies! It’s Your New STEPMOM, Let’s Begin With That.

STEPMOM will play Basement Bash Vol.XI to look for new sugar daddies that can pay for a villa in Barcelona – playing SONAR 2018 can get expensive.

“STEPMOM” or “YOUR NEW STEPMOM” is the solo project of Icelandic rap star Jóhanna Rakel. Jóhanna has been a member of the world renowned, all-female hip-hop collective Reykjavíkurdætur from their inception in 2013, as well the side project CYBER who released two EP’s and debut LP in one year.

indieBerlin: Tell us a little bit about your musical background.       
STEPMOM: Hmmm, I don’t have a background in music but you know I listened to a lot of Anastasia, Britney Spears, X-tina (etc) growing up does that count?  

indieBerlin: How did you come up with the name STEPMOM?
STEPMOM: I got married and my now ex husbands son kept calling me stepmom instead of “master Johanna” like I asked him so I just kind of let it be and adapted to my new role.

If I could have invented anything in the world it would have been noodles. And I’d have called them sexy strings

indieBerlin: Tell us something about yourself that you always wanted to say but no one has ever asked you yet.
1. I am a dork. But like a sexy dork.
2. If I could have invented anything in the world it would have been noodles. And I’d have called them sexy strings. And like trademarked them n stuff.
3. I don’t want to be a role model. But I do want kids/other types of humans to see all the different forms that art comes in and learn to respect creativity and yeah just like respect art in general.

indieBerlin: If you had to describe your music to a deaf person, what would you say?
STEPMOM: I would sign to them the following; “if you could hear this music u would be wet and want to fuck ur stepmom like a.s.a.p.”.

indieBerlin: If your music was a movie, which genre would it be in?
STEPMOM: Well actually my life is a constant chick flick, so like yeah… my music would be fab in a chick flick.

indieBerlin: Where do you get your inspiration from?
STEPMOM: Mostly from beautiful dicks but on occasions I’ll get really inspired while watching soap operas or like when I’m at the spa.

I really am very perfect!

indieBerlin: What music do you listen to when you’re touring?
STEPMOM:  lot of Gucci Mane, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, BIA, IAMDDB and then I just discovered this German dude Caramelo so I am listening to him now. He is hot.

indieBerlin: What was your biggest stage fuck-up?
STEPMOM: Just like forgetting lyrics. Nothing too serious, I really am very perfect!

indieBerlin: Do you prefer to play big festivals / stages or smaller club gigs?
STEPMOM: Your new stepmom is very intimate so like small, cosy venues, preferably with rugs on the floors or very nice sofas so there can be a group orgy after my show!!!

indieBerlin: In ten years you look back to today and think:
STEPMOM: Fuck I am even hotter now!


Stepmom will be playing Basement Bash’s Hip-Hop edition on May 18th at Marie Antoinette. She will also perform with Reykjavíkurdætur at SONAR 2018.
