To keep others privacy and keep things simple, I’ll be using (-) for OP and (—) for Lo.
—hi everyone :) swinging by to catch up on all things 2019 - dejavoom, reflective 4, and whatever else... live and direct! who wants to start? ready. set. go.
- Where’s the deja voom lo fi set at????
— yo! thats a good question :) there has been SO MUCH DEJA VOOM on the brain over here, we are working nonstop on all these nifty bells and whistles :) one remaining riddle is where the F can WCLF play? because that vibe is all about random, dark room, low ceiling, small crowd, random freestyle creativity DJ sets... lampshade on the dome, nobody trying to take photos or record things or have thir phone out... its like a dancers only...no watchers... so if it happens it will most likely be just a random moment in the tiniest room, or some broom closet with a boombox cranked up to max :)
- Will we ever see Naux Faux perform live?
Also, ATL misses you dearly.
— hey derek :) the naux faux concept was to create a sonic experience, and we'v never really thought about "performing it live" although someday if i found the time it would be fun to create a live band to play that stuff... but i dont know... for now its just a vibe to enjoy... SADLY we had hoped to finish EP2 for Valentine's Day, but i've been so busy with Reflective 4 and Deja and all the spring and summer plots, so ....aye! so many ideas, so little time
- Will everyone be able to see the west coast lo fi set?
— AJ: if it even happens, no, it will literally be a random moment and some dude with a lampshade on his head playing old hip hop records, or just random breakbeat or house records... likely in a small corner, in a dark room. that vibe is just a whole different thing... not a spectacle... nothing to see here... keep on moving, people, just keep on moving :)
- WHERE IS FREESTYLE? And BC?
— SLATER :) i am willing to bet you could guess kurrectlyyy about both of themmmmm :)
- Naux Faux pt2? Miss you Lo! Can’t wait for freestyles :)
— much love Ethan!!!! Naux Faux pt2 will hit either DEEEEEEP in the middle of summer vacation, or possibly even late fall as everyone starts to get cozy again.... we have some great ideas started, but there has just been so much added to the plate.... I'm starting to sign other artists to release on Amorphous... starting with Dorfex Bos, ill Gates, and Jantsen.... and i'm warpping up Reflective 4 [likely coming out mid spring], and honestly i'm about halfway through Reflective 5 [likely coming out summertime] and with Deja being SUCH A FUN creative project... zowie,....just been a busy bee
- When will the attendants who entered to perform find out whether or not they got accepted? Thanks! Cant wait for deja!
— Zak: u tockin about OPEN DECKS? i honestly thought that was already announced... let me check
— WE WILL ANNOUNCE OPEN DECK TODAY... just after we done here, will post up an announce :)
- Hey man!! So glad to hear from you! What should we expect from the End of the Rainbow fest?
— honestly, i am so fricken excited about that one.... The Gorge is such a beautiful venue, and having the opportunity to be a part of this first time festival has been amazing: i can tell you the concept is kind of like the old school Lollzpalooza vibes from the nineties... like a true DIVERSITY festival... celebrating all forms of music, all moods, all levels of the spectrum :) its really gonna be a special one
- Love ya! Any general idea when reflective 4 is coming?
— yo! :) yup Leprechauns 2018 version will def be included on Reflective 4 :) i've been finishing that up all last month, and will have a few collabs to preview at Deja [ with Hailo, Peekaboo, and Jantsen] and the EP should be out early or mid April?
- Can we expect a new deja voom mix from you?
SUPER excited to experience this!
— hey sarah! DUDE NO DOUBT!!!! i have like 57,000 mixtapes i wanna release, its just... fuck. never enough time
- What are your favorite songs of the year so far?
— oooooh favorites are scary!!!!
- Can we expect freestyle in the same state and venue this year? 🙂
— quite possibly :)
- Will the west coast lo fi set be available for everyone to see?? DEJAVOOM
— Jake: the concept with West Coast Lo Fi is basically just "i give absolutely NO FUXKS AT ALL somebody hand me a lampshade, im gonna put it on my head and play a DJ set of some of my favorite tunes, and for all i know theres nobody even in the room, and its like a houseparty vibe... i would literally just play fuckin hip hop records, or old acid house or breakbeat stuff... i used to do that at BUrningman, literally with a lampshade on my head, for like 5 people on an art car... its more fun to just have it be zero pressure, no performance, no spectators, nobody watching... just dancing... i really woud never wanna do that and have anyone standing around with their phones or trying to record or film or take photos or anything but close their eyes and dance... what i think im gonna TRY and do is make it happen several times, but this isn't really a come on come all max capacity type thing... ts like SUPER random... i mean maybe ill wake up at 4am, and throw down for an hour in a broom closet i truly dont know :)
— BUT! one thing i want to add is that this is ABSOLUTELY NOT IN ANYWAY about being rude or mean or too cool....like this isnt about making something EXCLUSIVE happen, and shutting people out... its like, extremely chill, extremely LO FI, and just an earnest, authentic love for freestyle throwdowns, its in my blood... i love DJing and i love having zero pressure, and although i endure the stage and all that stuff with BN, when it comes to WCLF, i just wanna be chill as heck... so anyone who ever doesnt get to catch it, first of all:
—1. no worries :) —2. its LITERALLY not 'that good'! its LITERALLY me playing some old random records... i might play the same damn song three times in a row, or like leave the room to get a drink and come back... like... theres no quality control its just house party vibes 3. i honestly DEEPLY appreciate the enthusiasm and curiosity...if you do end up there with me, PLEASE just enjoy and dance and for LORD's sake.... i pray unto thee, no phones :)
- Do you have themes planned for each night of Deja?
— oh dude, TIM, there are literally like 89 themes per night... i keep changing the concepts... right now i know that i want Night One [for me, personally, im not sure exactly what everyone else will wanna do] i wanna make the theme for Night One Dejavoom all about the DEEP DIVE...
—so it will be quite similar to Okeechobee Night One set, in terms of musical style... kind of more downtempo, more leftfield... i will honestly probably incorporate a lot of West Coast Lo Fi vibes into Night one, and almost make it "a downtempo set", so yah it will be a deep dive pretty similar to Okee Night One or Freestyle/Dreamtempo....
—Night Two or Three i wanna rip the portal wide open and go full on mayhem vibes, but.....i havent crossed that bridge yet :)
—honestly one thing about Deja is that while im working NONSTOP on musical ideas, i'm really working on the entire event, so i have spent a TON of time getting creative for other artists, trying to dream up cool ways for them to display their imagination, and curating the lineupp andthe scheudle was super fun... when we were on the walkthrough we stumbled across the water park [its a small water park! like 3 slides and a pirate shiip] and right then and there in that moment i was like FUCK IT! lets put together a one off day party here, i wanna see Bukez or ill Gates throw down HERE.... and Kursa's wife FFiNN is gonna be on site with the Slug Wife crew so we wanted to get her on deck as well... where was i ?
— OH YES! so yah alot of my creativity has been focused on the event itself.... then seeing the FYRE FESTIVAL documentary was like the ultimate inspiration to do everything THE EXACT OPPOSITE :)))))
—So we have been focusing a lot on safety and just creating a very warm, gentle, fun atmosphere... its pretty cool how many people will be travelling to Mexico for their first time, and we want to help make it an incredible experience. We have been doing a lot of planning with security, and hoping everyone will be super kind and careful and gracious [I THINK IT IS SO AWESOME THAT WHILE DFT is tryna build a wall to keep mexicans out, WE are straight headed to mexico with open arms :]
—Also, part of the normal vacation resort package for all of these things is unlimited food and drink, including alcohol, and i believe the legal drinking age down there is 18 or 19, so we are working to keep this from being a big shit show... we hope everyone leaves their drugs elsewhere or nowhere, and comes down to just enjoy the beautiful area, and all the amazing music, enjoys themselves responsibly, takes care of each other, doesn't push anything too hard....etc
—so we been planning SO MUCH AMAZING FUN STUFF pretty much round the clock in part with the hopes that everyone has the most healthy, vibrant, radiant, safe &amp;amp;amp;amp; fun experience possible :)
- Any plans for basscenter?
- how excited are you for the first family vacation? 🤗 we love you and can’t wait!!
— i am truly, deeply excited.... i'm not sure it's the first, but i am sure it shant be the last :)
- Have you ever thought about bringing back your live streams? Will we be getting a mix anytime soon?:)
— Kenny :) i got mixxes comin outta my ears, i just havent found the time to focus. i took a massive leap off the edge and unplugged from the grid, i'm taking an ALMOST total break from social media [this is the first time i have been online since New Years :] and i ended up filling my time with a whole lot of normal behaviior: hiking in nature, chilling with friends and family, excercising, taking day trips, and just enjoying, but i also have been working on OVERDRIVE, and Reflective 4 turned into a full length album, so i had to split that up into 2 parts, and still havent got to wrap up Naux Faux part two... plus so many other collab projects and stuff.. so... mixtapes.... ahhh i really wanna drop one...i just need time
- Will there be a reflective tour?
— always :)
- What should we be expecting tempo wise for 4th addition? Why did you decide to name all of these reflective? Whats the possibility of you switching up the bass drop again? Is this a end of era? or the beginning of a new one?
— hi byron :) basically i just enjoy collaborating so much, and the concept of reflective is really about how we all influence each other when our mind's ricochet off each other's imagination, and so i just started loving that theme, and now it just doesnt feel natural to stop. i had like half of it be just all original tunes, and i pushed some of those off for part 5 to make room for more collaborative mashups...
— when i started getting into music i was 12 or 13, and i learned some basics on guitar, but then just started remixing shit... learning a Nirvana song or a Black Sabath song, and then learning how to play it in reverse, or like backwards, slow down to half time, and record that and then play on top of it, and just weird experimentation.... i started playing in a band right away [embarrasingly enough, freshmen year of high school we were called DECAY of HUMANITY and all were just urgently trying to grow our hair out haha]
— but yah, all my early experiences with music were playing with people, i learned rythmn that way, how to keep tempo or hold down a beat by keeping up with 4 or 5 other humans in real time....
— Drum Circles too... the chaos of a full moon drum circle with like 50 people out under the moonlight.... that taught me how to hold it down so that thefirst time i ever tried turntables it was instantaneous... beat matching was very simple at that point, and collaborative interaction was something which really was at the core of inspiration
— in the early days for me DJing was very collaborative because of course you are interacting with the crowd, but also i was very involved in the back end of each event or full moon party, in terms of making them happen, scouting out the land, helping park cars, set up sound systems, etc... so there was always heavy collaboration
— i also love film... i love how its the summary of such a HUGE team... it makes zero sense to me that music should be just ONE person... i mean, it CAN be, but its just way more fun to work with others, or at least to reflect :)
-Will you be driving your beach cart around the resort from afar or will you join the mother fucking party at deja? 😝🏖️😎
— probably a bit of both - i really want to hit up the open decks sessions.i honestly am looking forward to quality time with so many people heading down there, lots of old friends too. i had hoped to get some DJ workshops going also, but... at this point we are just flinging everything at the wall and seeing what sticks... i'm pretty sure we wanna do DEJAVOOM 2020, so this is almost like a testing ground for ideas for next year :)
- Please go back on tour at least one more time
— im never not on tour :)
- What is you're favorite hip hop acapella to twist live. To add to that, What is you're favorite 90s hip hop track of all time.
— oh GOOOOOODNESSS, there is one in particular which i was flipping for some WCLF bizness and jeses F christ its just so fuckin hot. AH :) so much goodness>...
— although ironically i have been working with a lot of MCs live the past few weeks, just literally finished a session with some grime MCs in london about an hour ago [RD from "Heavyweight Sound" who it turns out he is the son of 1 half of the Ragga Twins...i just found that out kind of trippin]
— i wanna tell you some of the jams i have been feeling most, but id rather save for a set..if i tell you now you'll just go listen, so i gotta keep it under wraps for now :)
- Thanks for all you do Lo. You make this world a little bit easier to exist in. I love you
— muchos amor :)
- What’s your favorite bassnectar song? Lo Fi
— i havent made it yet :)
- Some sort of Smashers and Mashers revival in Reflective IV would be dope
— jujuuuuuuuuu :)
- Eeeeee just swinging in to say I’m so totally stoked for Deja! I can’t believe it’s almost here/real.
— i know! travel safe :)
- Please do a tour again... please. I know you’re huge n need to be in big venues but I can’t swing festivals very often anymore. Love you either way and thanks for inspiring me always.
— hey chelsea :) yah, i hope someday somehow to get to throw down in small dark rooms with low ceilings, thats my faaaaaaave. well... or outside under the stars...or a house party... just small rooms and heavy systems :)
- Thank you for establishing a identity/brand/group of people that promotes nothing but positivity. i can’t wait to see you in the forest 🙂
- So grateful for the community of kindness you’ve helped to create and all the amazing people who have become a part of my life through our shared love for your music! Do you plan to do any site seeing in Mexico?
— Abby i would love to....there is SO much to explore, but i will likely be on site the entire time and running around like a mad man :) i'm taking a roadtrip to the Grand Canyon in March so that will be some heavy duty exploration times :)
- So what made you remaster leprechauns arise? Strictly for reflective or was it the consistent want or possibly it was just time to blow the dust off the track?
— at this point i have a pretty steady schedule of "reinforcements" on deck...which is basically taking an old record and refurbishing it with new sounds and layers and elements, not only remastering, but kind of just amping it up or flexing it out ...sometimes it will really change the vibe to a whole new level, other times, it just makes things a bit warmer and wider and heavier, more stereophonic :)
- Another North east event maybe??? 😁likeee In AC or something ❣️
— AC was so live!!!!! we loved it! same with Chicago at the Spring Gathering... both of those rooms have been hard to route back to.... same with that smaller room in Atlanta where we did the "basslanta" thing in Sept 2016... i know we are trying to rock that secret location again this year... its in the works :)
- Remix competition for producers????
— would be really great! again, its on the list. its pretty wild how many cool things are on The List. its a fuckin cool list TBA, but lord its hard to keep up with everything :)
- Is Leprechauns arise still expected for Reflective part 4?
— yes indeedy :)
— notta moment too soon :) wish we could hit that room again from Spring Gathering this year but we couldnt route it... there's a concept for one night a-brewing in the windy citayyyy tho
- Hi Lo. Thank you for all you do. Been seeing you here or there since 2009 and I remember sometime around Bisco 2012 standing in the crowd and looking at all the people and thinking how much power we would have if we all put our efforts towards positive change in the world. Fast forward 6 years and I am so happy to see all the amazing things our community has done, from voter registration outreach to clothing and food drives. Warms my heart to see this. Loved NYE and that Carl Sagan passage was amazing. Can't wait for Deja Voom and everything else to come in 2019!❤️
— thanks Ross :) thats so sweet! warms my heart right back to read this :)
- Any more plans to remix/update more tracks from MTU or DSOT? It’s a dream of mine that you’d release an updated (and longer) version of Bursting 🙏🏻. Hope you’re having a great week!
— i actually had this unreleased version of it, but its REALLLLY dark, its all heavy guitars and live drums, it like finished as the normal version does, and then it sweeps into "in the wings we stay lurking searching for the right opening and then we burst in" and it was like this HELLA DARK turn, where i imagined bursting into Dick Cheney's mind while he slept and destroying him in the middle of his dream... and we were like bursting in and changing the world by basically planting Inception ideas of peace into his mind.. pretty weird... years before that movie inception.. anyways, i never released that version hhaahhaah it was too dark.
- Re release Mesmerizing the Ultra & Diverse System of Throb on ITunes or a CD 💿 in 2019 or 2020?????
— i have a bunch of CD's in my friend's garage, i wish i could just send you one :)
- What's in your earphones these days?
— been working nonstop so its basically ideas for deja, all the content for reflective 4 and reflective 5, a new collab with UFO!!!! and some other random sheeeeeeeeeeyat. this new Naux Faux stuff is DEEEEEP too :)
- Skin on the drum that is all Lo Fi
— ok so i am about 9999999% positive that i finally will have a remaster of that, or part of that, for Deja, its been the goal... taking forever because all the files were on an old PC so i have been having to recreate alot of it :)
- My post from earlier ... what’s your thoughts on this wild idea ....
“Alright so imagine this...
Nectar, ill gates, and jansten all collab on 3 new tracks for Deja. Each one of them gets to debut one song each during the Deja event...
By time night 3 happens on Saturday we’ve gotten to hear them all...
Night 3 comes around and nectar unleashes madness upon us and plays all 3 tracks...
But here’s the twist... the 3 tracks get layered together to create one mega nasty track to close out the final set 🤯🤔🤯”
— kyle! :) its a beautiful idea :) >>> as it happens im just having them each put together an EP for Amorphous :)
— :) green tea up in THA dome :)
- Out of curiosity.. if the lofi set at dejavoom is a secret set, why was it even on the lineup... people paid 2 grand+ to go but won’t even be able to see all the sets they want to that was on the lineup because of said “secret sets”
— heya Danielle - i made the executive decision to just not really play into that "people paid XXXX and deserve XXX" type thing. we are going so above and beyond to deliver such a wonderfully heartfelt experience, i have zero concerns nor worries that anyone who comes will have the time of their life :)
creating all the nooks and crannies has been so fun, and we are ammassing SO MANY state of the art creative minds to throw down on so many levels... i just truly could not be happier.
so if anyone wants to waste their time trying to find THE ONE THING WRONG and that's how they wanna spend their time, that's on them. in terms of artistic integrity, i am putting myself behind this one zillion percent, and we have things SO much cooler than a random WCLF set planned. :)
if i can pull it off as well, i will. By the way, i was only originally gonna play one 60 minute set, just like at Okee [we found some of the best festivals last year were just like that Okeechobee mainstage where its so deadly and an hour is perfecto] but now i'm playing three 90 minute sets, all completely unique and super distinct and customized, so im mixing in a lot of WCLF vibes into night one.... basically the theme for night one is pretty WCLF :)
but also, that whole concept isnt about "everyone getting to see".... there is no "everyone getting to see" at any festival i've ever been to.... look at a bonaroo lineup, theres zillions of artists who not everyone can see, and that's some of the magic too :) cuz if
WCLF decides to show up and throw down it will only be chill and low pressure, as i already know we are going above and beyond to OVERDELIVER :)
so with the utmost graciousness, gratitude, and enthusiasm, i just decided not to take on any outside pressure for WCLF. if it happens it happens. If it happens and you're somewhere else having the time of your life that will be cool to.
- Thank you for dejavoom. Biggest vacation/event of my life thus far. What do you have in store for us that we might not know of yet?
— hi :) im most excited about all the various zones to explore...
The Haven is this super rad open air spot with free smoothie bar and yoga classes in the day, there is a lazer pool open late night, roaming the beach under the stars, we have a full on DOWNTEMPO ROOM called The Santuary with ambient sets and super deep throb-hop and leftfield stuff... the Lo Fi room is like this TINY nightclub, the Deja Room is a full on sick ass nightclub, the VOOM ROOM is gonna be super deadly and intense, theres a bowling alley, theres like 5 massive pools, its just all this epic adventure to explore :) so that's what im most excited about :)
- CAN YOU PLEASE MAKE SOME DRUM & BASS FOR US!
— yes! on Reflective 4 me and jantsen have this tune called "Hectic" or "Its about to get hectic" and the second drop is bananarnar d&b :)
- Celebrate 20 years anniversary Dreamtempo Mixtape Listen Party In 9/19/2019 ? Lo Fi
— wow....holy crap its 2019....holy crap 1999 was twentyyears ago?!??!?! dafucccccc
- If you could have been in the audience for one of your sets, which one would it be? I always feel bad that you never get to see a nectar set 😢 lol
— yah that would be so much fun :)
- Just wanted to say thank you for Greensboro. That was a very special show for my gf and I. Afterglow is our song and we have yet to hear it live together it’s like you somehow knew👽 so thank you 💚 Lo Fi
— thanks Griffin, that was truly one of our all time faves :)
- If you see Lorin walking around at Deja, please don’t mob the man. Let him enjoy his vacation too!!!!!!!!!!!
— that was literally me at Outside Lands like "um. dudes, your generator turned off" and some hooligan was like 'oh you blew the speakers' and we were like literally BUDDY NO. the generator is literally out of gas. that was ratchet :)
- Have you ever thought about doing a song with Lindsey Stirling? I feel her volin sound with your style would sound amazing. Thank you!
— yes i love her!!!!
- “Reflective pt.4 turned into a full length album so I had to split that up into 2 parts”
So are we getting pt. 4.1 and pt. 4.2 or is that why we’re getting a pt. 5?
— part four is like Lep2018, a collab with Hailo, a collab with Peekaboo, a collab with Jantsen, some other stuff.... Part 5 will MOST LIKELY have collab with Luzcid, a collab with Dorfex, a collab with Moody Good, hopefully me and Gnar Gnar finish up another....theres a ludicrous collab with Digital Ethos... more info soon
- When everything gets overwhelming, what’s the one thing that helps you get to peace?
For me whenever I get really overwhelmed or stressed I like to take long walks and just think about everything.
I love what your message, your music and the people I’ve met through your music has done for me in my life — thank you for being so interactive ❤️
— just staying grateful. just allow mysefl to remember how lucky i am to be here, and POOF! you're back in a state of awe... life moves so fast, just make the most of each moment :)
- Thinking of doing any more underground Invite Only parties like the one in Brooklyn? 🤗 That was too fun ! Great to hear from you and can’t wait for Mexico🦑
— Yes! i really wanna do more of that, its so hard to navigate... the one thing about Brooklyn was being behind the screen, that was a bit weird, i prefer just a DARK room, no lights, tons of heat, big sound, but yah, the no phone thing, small intimate throwdowns... we wanna do some at Deja for sure, and will look for other opps to do them
