Nakey (feat. Blak Trash)
[BIRDFEED EXCLUSIVE] This week's new track was actually a tip from Justin Martin. He told us he's been playing a bunch of Westend music in his sets and we should check them out. So we did, and we signed 'Nakey', featuring Oakland's Blak Trash!
-How long have you been creating music?
WESTEND: 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!
BLAK TRASH: Creating music for 10+ years, Blak Trash is now 4 years old.
-What do you use to make your tracks?
WE: Started off on Reason and switched over to Ableton 3 years ago.
BT: Fl Studio
-How and when did you first discover Dirtybird?
WE: 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 re-released with a new roster of remixers.
BT: Discovered it browsing Soundcloud.
-Which Dirtybird artist would you want to collaborate with the most?
WE: Walker & Royce, Fisher, Justin Martin. No particular order
BT: The legend himself, of course.....Claude what's good? We got some gas for you.
-If your entire life was a movie, what title would best describe you?
WE: Hot Tub Time Machine
BT: Knocked Up
-What’s the best concert you’ve ever been to?
WE: 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.
BT: Dance Gavin Dance in Sacremento Ca, they absolutely killed their set.
-If you could time travel, where and when would you go?
WE: Disco parties in New York during the 70's.
-What species of bird best describes you and why?
WE: Seagull cause I will steal your fries.
-What does Dirtybird mean to you?
WE: Honored to have a second release with Dirtybird. Always been about the music and having a good time. What more could you ask for?
BT: Dirtybird is one of the foundational pillars advocating the preservation of the house music culture.Share
