We have been appreciating the sounds of SUB-human here at Noiseporn HQ for quite some time. The Australia-based producer and DJ has stepped firmly into the spotlight as of late with a bootleg of Doctor P’s “Tetris” that has finally seen a release. To hear about the relase and more, we caught up with this mega-talented artist for Behind The Bass.
To kick things off, tell us a little about yourself. Where are you currently based and how long have you been making music for?
Hey! Currently I’m based in Melbourne, Australia. I’ve been producing music for about 10 years now!
What/who/where inspires you the most creatively?
NOISIA would have to be No. 1 as they mess me up creatively, as well as their engineering skills.
What is your favourite part about being an artist? If you could change one thing about it, what would it be?
My favourite part is traveling around, meeting new people, having beers in faraway lands and meeting fans. If I could change anything it would be travel time!
Your new remix of Doctor P’s “Tetris” has, at last, landed as a bootleg! How long ago did you make it?
I had the main vibe in two weeks. Then I spent another two or so revising the mixdown/master as I usually do, then after a few live plays I added the extra percussion in the final breakdown/build.
What did you enjoy about working on such a classic track?
Memories! So many flashbacks to stomping around dark basements when I was younger. Also, as the track started to come together I was pretty excited to see how it would go in my sets. I’m happy to say it’s been a highlight every set!
If you could have anyone remixing you, who would you choose?
It would have to be NOISIA or Moody Good.
What sets you apart as an artist?
I spend a long time making my weird bass sounds from scratch, using a very long-winded resampling technique. So there’s a lot of unique bass reeses you’ll hear! I’ve been an audio engineer for the past 4-5 years mixing other people’s tracks, which gives me a unique perspective on the mixdown process. Hopefully people can appreciate some of my weirder mixdowns on big speakers!
Which direction do you want to take over the next year? Any plans you can share with us?
I will keep pushing the boundaries of weird and heavy bass sounds. For me it’s always about super high energy in my music, so wherever that takes me! I’m looking at heading to China at the end of the year and the US. Very excited to eat, drink and DJ my way around the world. =)
