What are you doing at this very moment [besides this interview]?
Working on a tight glitch hop track.
Tell us a crazy story. This could be friend oriented, music related, drug insinuated, etc.
This one time at Bloom I had a trip that everyone was aliens and I saw a UFO hovering in invisibility mode next to the Hummingbird Stage during Cloud-D’s set, I was also really high so who knows haha
Favorite food and drink! Go!
Pizza and yerba mate
What DAW do you use? Favorite plugins?
Ableton 9, and at the moment my fav plugins are massive, lokomotiv, wow2, fabfilter volcano 2, alchemy
Why do you produce and what keeps you going?
I produce because the futuristic sounds rhythms, textures, and intricate arrangements coming from experimental electronic producers, new and old, provide an extraordinary creative influence that gives me an idea of what’s going on with their individual experience. Production’s like a fresh new way of communication through vibration, you send out a signal ‘n’ see who’s tuned into the style of ‘your’ frequencies. What keeps me going is the endless inspiration, and the idea that in the right situation my music can have a similar mind expanding effect on others as songs have had on myself in the past.
Where would you go if you were given an all-expenses-paid trip to anywhere in the world?
Do you believe in God? Please feel free to elaborate.
Yes, but I have a different concept than most may have. I believe when talking about ‘God’ we’re talking about the idea that what we’re experiencing is sacred and actually holds deep meaning on multiple levels even if we can’t completely remember why or how. So ‘God’ to me is the experience, or the meaning of the moment, not an anthropomorphized man sitting in a golden throne above earth, but the unity in reality that gives existence it’s harmony.
Where do you see yourself 1 year from now? 2 years? 5 years?
I’m headed toward a more harmonious lifestyle where i can produce consistent music in sync with what I’m flowing through, including doing more yoga, spending more time in nature, and finding a job that gives back to the community.
Who are some up and coming producers that we should check out?
POCKiTZ, Dub.Buddha, Sounsiva, Aristoi, Cloud-D, Profresher, boozavero, Synchronisitic, so much more I’m missing
What four songs have been the most influential to where you’ve gotten to today?
Protohype- Lazy Wednesday, Profresher- Invasive Species, Sauce ft. Dub.Buddha -Tasteful Concord, Sounsiva -Baguette it Again
What is in store for us to look forward to? An album perhaps?
Yes! I’m cutting the slacker character out of my storybook, cutting down on the weed smoke and focusing on mixing, mastering and completing tracks . I have enough tracks in the works for a few ep’s but have oceans of work to accomplish before ever feeling like they should be released.
