MiMOSA – Live @ Masquerade, Atlanta, GA (VTT Interview & Photos)
When did you first get into producing music?
program called fruity loops and started making side trance jingles because
that’s what was popular at the time kind of like how dubstep is now. I met a
few friends, who were side trance producers and made a few tracks, I didn’t
really play them for anybody cause they sucked. I was into hip hop before that,
I grew up in California and that’s just what I was listening to.
After that I
went to Burning Man to check out more side trance and I heard this new chill
out music, anything that wasn’t side trance was chill out music. I heard it and
the shit I heard was a cross of hip hop and side trance and it had the hip hop
beats and psychadelic sound of side trance. I liked that sound and that’s where it all kind of started.
Sanctuary, is this the biggest tour run you have done?
shows for the year. Every weekend we’re not doing a show we have hit a festival. It’s been cool,
festivals are always fun, the crowds are huge.
a different city every night?
eat my food. I get ready for the show, I prep my set, we do sound check and
then I got on the bus, I get ready to play. While we’re driving or parked at the venue I set up my sound
system and I am working on music while these guys set up the rig. I am constantly
time. I just feel extremely grateful. That’s all I can say. My fans are amazing,
I just want to keep doin’ what I’m doin’ and hope they keep coming to shows.
Drake’s, Take Care. I fuckin’ love it, I have always loved hip hop.
have the sound. Being out in NY, it didn’t change me, but it definitely
effected me and changed my perspective a little bit. My outlook is the same and
I’ll keep my sound, but I try different things now. I heard a lot of stuff at
parties that I would never go to on the west coast and I was vibing it and I
went home and carried that vibe with me. I would make little stems and what not
and at the end of it I had the heart of a new project and took it back to LA
and refined it.
there w/ gas lamp and other music?
the gap and trying to infuse the different sounds that we have and I am really
vibing with it. It’s really dope. Music is about unity and getting people to
feel great and you gotta hit all the notes.
people, what’s your sound off for the vibe to this readers?
great for it to be recepted well. I feel super blessed, bro. I just want to
keep doin’ it for everybody out there.
