We introduce you to SubDocta who came together with CAMBOT. You should remember CAMBOT from issue five | TIME – if you don’t then don’t worry, we’ve got you covered in the links below. But for Now – we hope you enjoy the murky, dark and twisted sounds that these two bass musicians created under the theme of ‘HEARTBREAK‘. Don’t forget to keep scrolling down to find our exclusive interview with these two as you press play to hear ‘She Gone’.
phuture: Hey CAMBOT! Welcome aboard phuture once again :). I see you’ve brought a new friend this time! Mind introducing us?
CAMBOT: WAASAHHHHH, i’m very excited to have brought along my good friend SubDocta for this edition! It’s honestly very surreal, I remember seeing him throw down sets locally when I was a young bot, really excited for this one! 🙂
_____________________________________________ phuture: Welcome SubDocta! It’s so glad to have you on board for HEARTBREAK </3. Give the world a breakdown of who you are. (years producing, how you met cambot, location, etc,)
SubDocta: Thanks! Very grateful to be a part of this. I’ve been Deejaying since 2009 and producing seriously since 2013. I live in Reno, Nevada and I met Cam through internetting. We chatted for a bit and decided to make a beat together.
phuture: CAMBOT! What’s new since we last had the opportunity to exchange questions via interview :)?
CAMBOT:Just a whole lot of regularly scheduled chaos! lots of school and music trying my best to get by! Really happy to rejoin the phuture pham in this edition 🙂
phuture: What goals do you both have for 2017?
CAMBOT: Make music that people don’t hate. That’s about it. Maybe travel/tour with friends a little that’d be pretty awesome as well.
SubDocta: My motto is if you never set goals you can never be disappointed (kidding) I’d like to continue collaborating more with other artists and continue releasing tunes that are half-way decent!
phuture: Why did you get into music in the first place? What birthed your creative ingenuity?
CAMBOT: My mother existed as a giant influence, she wrote like 150 songs on the keyboard in like a year. I think the earliest memory of myself playing an instrument was picking up a harmonica in the local music store at the age of 8 and then playing for a couple years. I kinda took a break from music for a long time growing up because I was an immature brainwashed teenager, but began to see a rebirth in my love for music around the age of 14 or 15 when I began beatboxing regularly. I think a large portion of my creative drive comes from being a type one diabetic and the frustrations and tribulations that come along with that.
SubDocta: Wrong place at the wrong time. I think for most true artists of any form, you don’t really “get into it.” You are drawn to it and eventually have to create to try and satisfy that urge.
phuture: Can you recollect a spiritual experience in your life? Doesn’t have to be religious, just something that altered the course/perspective of your journey.
CAMBOT: Two years of Emissions Festival in California did a doozy, every moment is a blessing! Every day I realize more and more how precious life is.
SubDocta: Not so much spiritual, but being in the local punk rock scene as a teen really helped define who and how I wanted to be as an adult. Still figuring it all out, but those morals made an impact.
_____________________________________________ phuture: What are some of your favorite soundcloud labels (besides phuture :p ) ?
CAMBOT:Big fan of Don’t Die at Work, Lost Dogs, and the biggest of ups to Modern Illusion <3 (also be on the lookout for WODA *Wander on, Destiny Awaits*)
SubDocta: My good friends over at ShadowTrix Music out of LA!
phuture: Have you ever used any psychedelic or mind altering substances, either to influence your sound, or otherwise? What are your thoughts on psychedelics?
CAMBOT:Everything in moderation… including moderation. It’s easy to get lost in the rabbit hole. There’s a very fine line regarding psychedelics but in the right environment, they can be beneficial. Be sure to be good to your mind and body regularly.
SubDocta: Yes, not to influence my sound at all though. I probably wouldnt enjoy most of my music in that state of mind as it tends to be a bit aggressive lol. I think they’re great, in moderation. Seems like a lot of people these days (especially at fests) forget that, hence the birth of the wook. _____________________________________________
phuture: Give us some shoutouts of artists who deserve more recognition.
CAMBOT:CharlestheFirst, Hoven, Brio.., Outlit, Vide, Redublic, and all the local players that Docta said 🙂
SubDocta: Man, we have so many talented producers in this Reno/Tahoe area. Benjah Ninjah, Kowta, Hullabaloo, Milano, JARS, BLUE LOUIE, Muppet Punk are just a few off the top of my head. _____________________________________________
