A Brief Encounter With DCUP
I decided to see what he is up to at the moment, pick his brain (even if just a little), and the result follows:
So last time I spoke you still had a day job, are you still at the coffee shop?
In theory, but they stopped paying me.
You seem to be getting lots of positive attention from your recent Phonat remix, can we expect the same amount of attitude in your future work?
What’s it been like working with your ‘Sweat It Out’ brethren?
Oh you mean Yolanda Be Cool? Blood, SWEAT and Tears.
What effect do you think blogs and the internet has had on you as an artist?
It makes me awesome.
Who is your most desired artist/producer to collaborate with?
AJAX, were working on it.
What is your view on the notion that aggressive forms of dance music are officially ‘out’?
Not at all, Deadmau5 is still everywhere, Candys apartment still perforates ear drums every week, its only a temporary move away. Scenes are getting more fragmented so whats ‘in’ and ‘out’ each month is different in every post code.
Apart from releasing a whole bunch of remixes, what other future projects do you have coming up?
A Yolanda Be Cool collab pt 2, a track with Pablo Calamari, a new EP and the kitchen sink.
5 tracks your listening to at the moment?
BEatconductor – Caribbean Path
Nelski – Body Pop
PHCB – Baby – Daniel Haaksman Remix
Gorillaz – Superfast Jellyfish – Evil Nine Mix
Voltaxx, Lissat – 8 Days In Kazantip – Alex Kenji Remix
