So firstly can you tell us what kind of bass do you play?
The bass I love and play definitely falls within the lines of bass-driven dark techno. Sounds that make you dance but also makes you cringe. In a good way, of course. I have a really strong passion for 80’s and 90’s electronica life Kraftwerk, Front 242, Depeche Mode, and Dopplereffekt as well as modern techno and electro like Gesaffelstein, Djedjotronic, Siriusmo, and Strip Steve.
What drew you to your bass?
I love bass-driven sounds that are both apocalyptic and offensive. Aggression is a major theme in all the tracks I have in my arsenal.
What are some of your go to records at the moment?

JoeFarr – Spectate

Whats been your most memorable party so far?
Besides playing the Holy Ship February pre-party in Miami, I would have to say my most memorable party was the Nap Girls x Space Yacht takeover in Los Angeles. I played an hour-long b2b set with PILO from Boysnoize Records, which was obviously a huge opportunity for me seeing as I’m a huge fan of his music. But to make that even better, after our set, I also got to play a massive b2b2b2b set with PILO, Deapmash, and Escor Krist (all BNR guys). Being able to play my curious brand of writhing and weird techno alongside some of my favorite producers was such an awesome experience I’m very thankful for.
Have you had the chance to work on any new music recently?
I’m actually very new to the production world. I’ve been teaching myself Ableton for the past year or so, and am definitely still in the learning phase. I think it’s a thing that all producers go through, sort of as a right of passage, where I make a beat or track, spend hours perfecting it, then eventually hate it (haha). However, I am putting in the time and effort so hopefully I’ll have the self-assurance to release something soon 🙂
Do you have any major releases that we should be looking out for?
Like I mentioned above, it’s probably going to be a while before I release anything that’s noteworthy, but I recently collaborated with Nest HQ to curate a monthly playlist full of my favorite techno tracks.
Can you tell us about a few artists that are standing out on your radar?
Wheez-ie, Lokane, Vakkuum, TSVI, Voiski, Gunrose, IljusWifmo, Nehuen, BS1, and pretty much any artists releasing on Nervous Horizon, Leisure System, BNR, Omnidisc, Clubwerks, and Ilian Tape.
What are some of your favorite tunes of all time?
Blawan – Why They Hide Their Bodies Under My Garage
Djedjotronic – Abyssal Zone
Ecstasy Club – Jesus Loves the Acid
Kraftwerk – Numbers
Dopplereffekt – Master Organism
Psykofuk – Psykofuk Mix 2
Plastikman – Elektrix (Original 1993 Mix)
Public Energy – Three O Three
Djedjotronic & Miss Kittin – Pleasure & Pain
So finally when you hear bare bass what effects it has on you?
I think listening to any kind of raw, bass-driven club music should really be an all-encompassing mind-body-soul sort of experience. I like for music to be offensive and abstract but also emotive and thought-provoking as well. Producers that are able to achieve a successful and artistic juxtaposition between dark club elements and sensual sounds are the most talented producers in my book.
