What better way to round off the year with a podcast from Brassica. His Time Tunnel Ep is out on FMB now and his live show at our Warehouse Project event was a highlight. We are looking forward to hosting him at Shine on Boxing Night as well as making more plans for 2017. Here he is telling us what he’s been up to:
“Picking magic mushrooms in the Kent countryside, eating them, freaking out. Producing various kinds of music, mastering and mixing for other people and trying to get better at writing club music for my own amusement. Endlessly trying to perfect the Brassica live set. Learning the art of DJing for the last year or so. I’m a little late to the game but I’m enjoying the break from just production all day and I’m getting better all the time. I’ve been putting on some small club nights in my hometown of Folkestone, so I’ve been getting a fair bit of practice. Big up Bank Bar.
I don’t own decks right now, so I recorded the mix roughly in Ableton with a MIDI controller and then tidied a bit afterwards. Recorded in my living room with my cat Benson onlooking.
If the universe ever grants me the opportunity to be a full-time DJ, I’d play this kinda shit. It’s also where I’m aiming to take my productions too. I was mostly freeballing and having fun. Fun is becoming my main objective for music.”
