Interview

Hi Salva, how are you doing on this fine and sunny day?
Chillin out 🙂

Whats the meaning behind the Pope as your profile photo? Do you just love him that much?
Yeah I wanted to be the pope when I was a little kid… Haha for real though.

How did the process of the Mercy remix you did with RL Grime go?
I had the idea when I was in the studio at Power 106 when Big Sean premiered the original “Mercy”.. I was sitting there remembering that Madlib and Dilla used that reggae sample before. Brought RL in to do the track with me because we started working together recently, I remixed one of his tracks for Wedidit and I was always playing his stuff out… so we collabed on it and didn’t think too much about it.. Just had fun with it and it came out really good.

Did you think the remix would take off like it did? How much did it impact your life/career?
Yeah it’s helped get me a lot of exposure for sure..thankful for that.. just really helped me get in front of bigger crowds — been DJing all my life so it was a good platform to show kids what I do.

Are you still running around coloring the streets? If so where can we see some of your work?
No haha I don’t paint.

J Dilla’s birthday was today (February 7th). How important is he as a person to you?
Really big influence on all of us who were into golden era Hip Hop to modern underground stuff…his productions, his rap. He produced so many classics, if you were into Hip Hop at all the past 20 years — whether you know it or not you love Dilla’s music.

Don’t you just hate that remake of “Fright Night”?
Ha yeah it really wasn’t the best.. The OG is my fave though, of course.

Are we going to see you scratching during the Dim Mak Sundays night this Sunday February 10th?
A little bit maybe, I’ve been kinda forced into using CD-Js as of late, turntables are dissapearing accross the world!!! 🙁

Would you say that Bucharest, Romania is the best place to party? And why?
Kids just go really hard there, and the average party goer probably knows more about new electronic music than I do…they’re just really hungry for what’s next there for some reason.

How awesome was it when Pusha T came and did his verse over your remix during RBMA Culture Clash?
Yeah that was probably one of the best things that came out of doing the “Mercy” remix for sure.. He’s the illest man what can I say!! Pusha just shines on everybody.

What are the future releases on the Frite Nite label you’d like to tell us about?
We have really cool things popping, more underground style — for instance Jimmy Edgar and Adbourke remixes of The Starship Connection record we did last year, and an EP from Ana Sia that is really cracking tribal bass stuff.

Are you excited for your show this Sunday? Any surprises up your sleeve?
Probably no Pusha T this time hahaha (but maybe again soon).. nah I’m just gonna do me, I’ve wanted to come play Drai’s for a minute.. feel it’s gonna be a good platform to play some big rap songs and some banging dance tracks too. Very excited… and it’s GRAMMY’S NIGHT!!

Dim Mak Takes Over Bowling Alley For Steve’s Surprise Birthday Party

640 424 Tim Gauthier

Last night I learned just how competitive bowling is when the Dim Mak family came together in downtown Los Angeles for Steve’s surprise birthday party. We took over four lanes for the celebration and filled it with good company, balloons, beer, strike outs, and birthday cake. To wrap up the night we couldn’t leave with out an Aoki jump to remember the night of fun.

RED BULL MUSIC ACADEMY CULTURE CLASH RETURNS TO LOS ANGELES ON DECEMBER 5

 
Four Collectives Reppin’ the L.A. Music Scene
Four Sounds – Four Rounds – One Winner
SMOG | Dim Mak | Friends of Friends | Jeffree’s

 
Los Angeles, CA- November 15, 2012- Red Bull Music Academy Culture Clash will return to Los Angeles on December 5, 2012 and will feature four internationally known and well-respected L.A.-based music collectives: Dim Mak and SMOG, both of whom competed in 2010, as well as, Friends of Friends and Jeffree’s, who are new additions to the competition. The four collectives, each representing a different sound from the L.A. music scene, will battle to be named winner by the crowd.

 
Doors open at 9pm and the event starts at 10pm and is 21+ only. Get your tickets here.

 
A full recording of the night will be streamed on Red Bull Music Academy Radio approximately one week after the event on RBMA Radio: www.rbmaradio.com.

[/one_half_last]

True to a traditional Jamaican sound clash, each collective will bring in their own sound system and set-up shop on one of four individual stages at Exchange LA. The evening will kickoff a round called “Introducing the Crew,” which will allow each stage to warm-up their sound, and the crowd, with a 10-minute set. The next round, titled “I Can Do What You Can Do Better” provides a competitive twist in which each collective will stray from their norm and play an interpretation of another collective’s signature sound. The third round, “Let Us Entertain You,” will allow each collective to bring surprise special guests on stage. The final round, called “Leave It All On The Table,” also known as “the banger round,” is when each collective pulls out their biggest and baddest tunes in an attempt to win over the crowd, once and for all. By show of applause, cheers, hoots and hollers, which will be measured by a decibel meter, the crowd will vote for their favorite collective after each round.

With the four collectives performing under one roof, the Red Bull Music Academy Culture Clash promises to deliver not only a night you’ll never forget but also the very best in cross-genre exploration. The event is open to music fans who are 21+ and tickets are available for $15.
