You ran wild with your imagination in your music video for “Go Off”. What lead you to bringing this concept to life?
I was just working with the director “Brother Willis” and I really really liked his treatment idea! It reminded me of a plot line like the old music videos I used to love watching on MTV, so we ran with it!
Tell us all about your experience of joining forces with Flosstradamus.
Floss and I have been touring together for ages and we finally made a song together after knowing each other for almost 9 or 10 years, so it just felt right to throw this party together.
Explain how you were first introduced to Electronic music. Musically speaking, who has had the greatest influence on your musical soundscapes?
I first heard it from my good friend Eamon, and he played me Bloody Beetroots’ remix to “Seek and Destroy” by Metallica. They called their remix “Ill to Destroy”…It blew my mind and it set off there, and then the person whose soundscape made me want to start making music was Rusko.
