It’s a little insulting when your art or music has been categorized for you. At one of my art shows I listened in as someone critiqued one of my nude girly pieces not knowing I was behind him. He went on to tell his friend of all the things I was feeling and thinking when I drew the picture. It was funny to me cuz from all his know-nothing-know-it-all ramblings he left out the only thing I was thinking about while drawing this picture: “Tits. I love drawing tits.” Same goes with music! You can’t tell me that I make a particular genre of music when you’ve invented the genre like 3 years ago. I’ve been making music since before the interweb ! The same music!(for reals yo) Back in my day, we didn’t have all these fucking genres. There was no ‘witch house’ or ‘Dub step’. There were plenty of artist back then that would get shuffled into one of these many unnecessary new-born genres of today. Case in point: Mr. Oizo. This was a producer who debuted in my salad days of electronic music. And he loved the fuck out of some wobble bass! But he worked that shit, he didn’t shove it down your throat yeah? He never called himself a dubstep producer. I do believe it was the summer of 1999. Dyllan, a friend from Atlanta just got his first piece of hardware: a Roland 505. This was his first step into stardom as the dance sensation “Le Castlevania”. Inspired, I went a different route. Software! I took a trip to Detroit Mi to visit some old high school buddies having spent my sophomore year there. Kirill and Rob(and Arron), my best mates in detroit, made the stuff I liked! The darker, faster more chaotic stuff that eventually got its own form of genre splicing. That summer, with the aid of caffeine and adderall, Kirill and Rob taught me how to program synths, manipulate and distort waves and they gave me a crash course on all types of software and hardware that’s aided me to this day. Now when I started, the last thing I wanted to do was make people dance. My role models where that of Arron Funk, Richard D James and Thomas Jenkinson (Venetian Snares,Aphex Twin,Squarepusher) and they didn’t really follow one genre. Much like myself, they where out to make music that transcends any genre. They made albums that couldn’t be stocked into one particular section other than ‘Electronic’,and that was debatable(see Squarepushers beautiful avant-garde jazz album “Music is rotted one note”). It was jungle, it was dub, it was hip hop. It had elements of punk and metal and industrial. Sometimes it was funky. Sometimes jazzy. Most times just hyperactive. In conclusion, I am not a dub step or witch house producer.I’m down to fool around with the tools and attributes that characterize said genres and I got nothing against those who dedicate themselves too them. I’m just not into committing to one style. Same goes to any other genre that gets created after the music that’s supposed to adhere to it. Still couldn’t tell you what the fuck witch house is though. Back in my day we just called it chopped and screwed. Oh yeah! Here are some new songs you may have missed http://soundcloud.com/hatesnack/detached and http://soundcloud.com/hatesnack/trust-protect-the-block and http://soundcloud.com/hatesnack/tetragrammaton these are all originals I posted on sound cloud awhile back. And lets remember wobble bass before it got out of hand with an amazing video from M’sieur Oizo. I’m going to go chase some kids off of my lawn. P.S. Beware: Your beloved genres will eat you if you don’t eat them first. And you can take that to the bank.
