This producer never ceases to ignite the beat within; always one step ahead of the curve, TriLLwax builds futuristic bases with his uncanny ability to keep it fresh. Check out his submission, Set it Off, below the interview and follow him on Soundcloud.
Phuture: Firstly, besides this interview, what are you doing at this very moment?
TriLLwax: Working in an Oriental Rug store reading about the history of fine rugs and working on my set for a festy called High Mountain Hideout in Taos NM this weekend
Phuture: What song has been following you around lately?
TriLLwax: Alien Shit by Shlump
Phuture: You are given the object of your desire (money, fame, glory, happiness). The catch is that once you accept it, you can never get rid of it and you will never again desire anything else. So basically, you willyour be content for the rest of your life, having obtained the one (and now only) thing you wanted. Do you accept the offer and live in contentment with your greatest desire or do you reject it and continue to strive in uncertainty but with other possibility?
TriLLwax: I think I found a loophole that captures both answers: if more than anything you desire to be free from the restrictions of human desire then you will strive for what seems on the surface as uncertainty, ’cause there are limitless ways to go about freeing oneself from desire, BUT this doesn’t really answer the question. If I was given freedom from desire I’d either be dead or Buddha. So no I wouldn’t take it ’cause that would contradict the goal. Wanting freedom from desire and getting it is still a desire fulfilled, I’d just keep living trying to avoid desire my own way I guess ha
Phuture: Tell me a secret.
TriLLwax: If you do one thing with unique experimental rhythm, repetition, and transition/growth… with the right tools and intentions you will eventually master that thing
Phuture: What projects do you have coming up in the near future?
TriLLwax: Oh my, so much. Tons of collabs (some planned others in progress) w/ homies such as August, Damian, J.Jones, Hoodbridge, Samuel Dabson, Skipz, Illehl, Rippit, Snorlaxx, Cap’n Swivla, Enugh Energy, Lydian Grey, Mandlebot, Demz One, Sir+, Consull(+ more, sorry if I left you out) and hoping to eventually contact n collab w/ Pail, Intellitard, Dubuddha, Suds, Aristoi, BoozaVero, Mt.Analogue, Jonathan Thomas, Conscious Kalling, Blue Sunshine, Sonic Textures and Synchronistic. yeah
Phuture: You suffered from temporary amnesia and have no recollection of anything that occurred over the last 5 years. The essence of you and your abilities is still in tact but your memory of the last 5 years is completely blank. What are the key events that someone would need to remind you of in order for you to understand how you’ve evolved in the last 5 years?
TriLLwax: Wellll, I’d need to remember my Restorative Justice class at the end of High School, my first major psychedelic/spiritual experiences during winter 2012 end of the world, and spring/summer 2013. Then Sonic Bloom 2013, going through a big breakup summer 2013, all major Philosophy lessons in college that expanded my mind and heart, Gem and Jam 2014 &15, Bloom 2014 & 15, living on my own/with others, all blissful meditations, realizations and epiphanies in those years, all synchronistic “little” experiences and relationships made/bonded and ESPECIALLY all hardships, deceit, fears and downfalls/paranoid conspiracies that almost stopped me from being here now. Finally, experiencing losing some of my most beloved friends
Phuture: What’s the best thing since sliced bread?
TriLLwax: Modular Analog Synths
