Interview : Psyborg : Waxtooth Records : Texas
You’re notorious for your dark, militant hardcore sound. What kind of inspiration do you have for the sounds on The Marfa Lights Remix E.P.?
It stems from The Phoenix lights EP. The Science Fiction genre in general inspires me to write music. The Phoenix Lights Ep is a combination of that and my love for late 90s/early 2000s era Drum’n’Bass. Marfa Lights is an extension of that, featuring remixes by James Kelly, Soccer Mom and Burr Rabbit.
I’ve known for nearly a decade and you have an industrial goth look, do you find that music does come out in production?
Yes, Industrial Music will always be a source of inspiration.
You’re next is going to be the Rocket Radio Blast off party, what are you planning for the crowd?
The venue serves absinthe… so I imagine things are going to get weird.
What kind of set up do you have for a live performance? Aside from living dead girl go go dancers…
😉 My live setup includes Ableton Live, a Launchpad, and an LPD8. I compose and sequence my songs live by triggering and modulating original loops and samples. On special occasions VJ Trek will join me and provide live custom visuals.
What are you planning for 2013?
In the next few weeks my full-length concept album “Design Flaw” will be released on CD, digital, and a Vinyl single on www.waxtooth.com. In addition I have some official remixes in the works, a new collaborative project with Grimp, and tons of new material and events soon to be announced.
