1. What Do You Look For In A DJ/Producer?

For us, a good producer is someone who can make all kinds of music, including stuff that makes us ask, “How the hell did he come up with that??” A good DJ to us is basically someone who can keep their crowd dancing and basically throw a dope party. We’re really into everything when it comes to DJ/producer styles, and it’s hard to pick specific ones that we like, but as of right now we’re into techno like Clouds – ‘Terrorcore’.

 

2. Keeping Busy

Lately we’ve been travelling a lot! Between our own club dates in the States and touring the world with Rihanna we try to fit in as much studio time as we can. We’ve been doing a bunch of remixes for people like Kylie Minogue, Calvin Harris and Kaskade to name a few, as well as working on some original club tracks and other original beats we’ve been making for singers/rappers. Also, we just put out the third instalment of our mix series called Death To Genres.

 

3. Best Gig Ever

The best gig we’ve ever played was in Philadelphia last month at this festival called Made In America. The energy in that crowd was insane, not to mention the other huge acts that were playing. People like Kendrick Lamar, Schoolboy Q, Nine Inch Nails, Jay-Z, Beyoncé and a bunch more played and it was the coolest festival ever.

 

4. Current Playlist

We’ve been listening to a lot of Clouds, Toro y Moi, Shadow Child, Kaytranada and A$AP Ferg. We also saw Kendrick Lamar perform for our first time at Made In America, and that was such a dope show!

 

5. Your Ultimate Rider

Our ultimate rider would include a TV and Xbox with Grand Theft Auto V, Connect Four, balloons, pizza and gift cards. Our real rider really just has drinks like champagne, beer and tequila. We also ask for a bag of Doritos Cool Ranch for those late night parties!  

 

GTA plays The Argyle House, Newcastle on Wednesday October 2 and Chinese Laundry, Sydney on Friday October 4.
