[BIRDFEED EXCLUSIVE] "Don't Stop" is this week's Exclusive from New York's "Westend"!
-How long have you been creating music?
7 Years. Robert Moog, who created the first commercial modular synthesizer, went to my high school (shoutout Bronx Science). His daughter donated a digital music lab which consisted of around 30 iMacs each equipped with Reason 5 and a MIDI keyboard. Took a class on music production and the rest is history!
-What do you use to make your tracks?
Started off on Reason and switched over to Ableton 3 years ago.
-How and when did you first discover Dirtybird?
The first Dirtybird artists I saw was in 2011 when Claude Von Stroke closed out Mad Decent Block Party. I had no idea who he was and assumed he was some pompous Dutch techno DJ but I am pretty sure I lost my mind during that set.
“Make That Booty Clap” by Kill Frenzy was the first track on Dirtybird that I can remember. Sheeesh what a heater! It needs to be rereleased with a new roster of remixers.
-Which Dirtybird artist would you want to collaborate with the most?
Walker & Royce, Fisher, Justin Martin. No particular order.
-If your entire life was a movie, what title would best describe you?
Law Abiding Citizen
-What’s the best concert you’ve ever been to?
The most important one was Electric Zoo in 2011. I had never been to a festival before and 3 days of the biggest names in dance music had me hooked.
-If you could time travel, where and when would you go?
Easy. I would go the frontier during the wild west and be a cowboy.
-What species of bird best describes you and why?
Pigeon (I’m from NYC)
-What does Dirtybird mean to you?
Right now, Dirtybird is the most important dance label in the US and it’s sound has taken over the global house and techno scene. It's easy to see why with one of a kind events, a growing group of dedicated fans, and incredible music that consistently tops charts and sets new trends. Because of all of this, it is extremely humbling to be able release a track with Dirtybird right now and I could not be happier for the opportunity!Share
