Trollphace is hot off the first part of the tour which took place down under and he could not be more thrilled about it. We asked some questions and got some answers about the tour so far, what he expects for the rest, and got word of a new music platform he is launching.
How has the Black Label Tour been so far? It looks like Australia was nuts.
The tour has kicked off with amazing strength and I couldn’t be happier about it, and man what a country to start it. Australia has its reputation for being nothing short of epic and they didn’t fail to deliver on those expectations. Trampa, Krimer and I had one hell of a time that’s for sure.
There were a lot of “for the books” moments but I think my favorite one would have to be during our first show in Perth at Hidden Festival. We played in this natural out door amphitheater that was made of stone, hills and grass. It was the middle of the day and kids were still filling the place up, so the crowd was a bit scattered. Trampa and I took the stage though and by the third track in our set this swarm of kids just invaded the space in front of us with this sort of ancient battlefield charge. It was a pretty crazy sight to witness.
Inspiration. Pure raw inspiration. Trampa and Krimer smash shit mercilessly and it made me start to miss that, so on my downtime I re-imagined my sets and made a new one catering to as many people as I could whilst maintaining this crush your face with my foot vibe, and it’s been going very well so far. I look forward to working with one of the best DJ’s in the scenes history Mr. Skism on the US leg to see how much I can pick his brain on techniques 🙂
It means the world. I’ve had yet to feel like I fit in like an actual puzzle piece to a crew until recently. I love how I don’t have to hide my feelings or change my way of doing things. I love how I can be myself and it’s encouraged and supported as opposed to shot down.
The Mars Volta
Funtcase and Herobust. I’d want the epic brutality mixed with the swaggy brutality.
More music, and I’m launching some new platform shit that I’ve been working on for about 8 months that I’ve been waiting to unleash after this tour. Keep an eye out for that 😀
