It's no doubt that every time Never Say Die Records takes over Webster Hall, it's one hell of a party. BASSment Saturdays, BASSment Saturdays that happened to be on a Wednesday, Girls & Boys - you name it. They've become part of the family over the years and now their back to tear up your Friday night once again. Called the Black Label Tour, Girls & Boys February 17, will feature Trollphace, Trampa and Skism and as always, we're giving you and a friend the chance to go for free. (ENTER BELOW)

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.
Aussies are known to be pretty fucking crazy. Give us a good story.
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.
What have you gained from the tour so far and what do you hope to gain from the US leg of it?
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.ย Skismย on the US leg to see how much I can pick his brain on techniques ๐Ÿ™‚
What does it mean to you to be apart of the NSD family?
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.
Who is your dream collaboration with?
The Mars Volta
If you could pick two artists to be your parents, who would they be and why?
Funtcase and Herobust. I'd want the epic brutality mixed with the swaggy brutality.
What are your plans when this tour is over? Some R&R or are you going right back into the studio?
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 ๐Ÿ˜€
