We’re stoked to have sfam joining us Behind The Bass this week, as the creative producers/DJs have just recently released a brand new collaboration with TVBOO, “Blast.” Have a read to hear a little more about how they started working together, and what they have coming next.
Thanks for joining us, guys! How has your week been so far?
Hey guys, our week has been great so far. We’ve had a couple weeks off so we’ve had plenty of time to work on music.
What’s a typical “day in the life” when you’re making new music?
We usually wake up and hit the gym to get the juices flowing, then depending on our work schedules, we hit Ableton for a few hours while taking a few breaks throughout the day.
What/who/where inspires you the most creatively?
Anytime we need inspiration we usually listen to tunes by our homies. We also get a ton of inspiration anytime we go to a festival or show for artists we really look up to.
What are your favourite parts about being artists? If you could both change one thing about it, what would it be?
The best thing about being artists is being able to lay out what is in our heads into Ableton, honestly. We’d probably go insane otherwise. We also love the traveling aspect since we get to see so many new places and meet so many dope people.
How long have you been working together for now? Any personal highlights from your journey as a duo?
We’ve been working together since we both started producing, which was about 5 years ago. Highlights would have to include some of the wildest shows we’ve played, like the QGR takeover in LA, Detroit with our boys PEEKABOO, Mersiv, and Patches O’Malley, and seeing the support when we come play shows at home in New Orleans.
Your new single with TVBOO has landed and it’s a wicked track. Did you enjoy the making of it?
We had so much fun making it – TVBOO’s a really good homie and we live in the same city so we were able to make music together all the time.
Had you worked with TVBOO before? How did you first meet?
We’ve worked with TVBOO numerous times. TVBOO is from Jackson, MS (we’re from Mississippi as well) and he booked us for a show in Jackson a super long time ago – which is how we met.
How would you describe the tune to someone who had yet to hear it?
It basically sounds like you dropped a bunch of ping pong balls.
What are the most important things you’ve learned this year? Hopes for 2019?
We’ve learned a ton this year, production and business-wise. The most important thing we learned is to always keep our receipts from meals on the road so our manager doesn’t get mad at us. We have so much in store for 2019 show-wise and music-wise. We can’t say much but next year will be a wild ride.
