An epic show goes down this Saturday at Chop Suey. Lorn, of the Brainfeeder and Ninja Tune crews, is back in Seattle! I loved his set at Decibel 2010, and this time he will be joined by Dolor, Omega Clash (Lorn + adoptahighway) and III Cosby. Big thanks to People Music and Car Crash Set for putting this on. With a new album, “Ask The Dust” on its way in June through Ninja Tune (DL a free track), Lorn is sure to showcase some new sounds. Buy TIX and attend through FB - Interview with Lorn below..
DD Welcome Lorn! What are you up to right now?
L Easy, relaxing, was just working on a new track..some night music
DD You new album, “Ask The Dust” releases in a few short months. I loved the previews that can be heard on the Ninja Tune site. Are you playing many of these tracks in your current live sets?
L Thanks, glad to hear that. The live sets have definitely evolved as my catalogue grows, so there’s a lot from Ask The Dust, other new unreleased projects, and ‘classics’ if you will. My tools have changed as well with live drum playing, synths..
DD For those who saw your epic set at Decibel Festival 2010, how have you evolved artistically up to now?
L Ask The Dust is quite different from anything I’ve done. Been pushing myself more, I think.. taking stranger risks, letting things ride, more use of my voice as an instrument. Some of my production sensibilities are still there or amped up but I wasn’t interested in making Nothing Else Pt.2
DD How would you describe the style of those opening your Chop Suey show?
L Dolor and adoptahighway are two of my best friends, so there are definitely some musical parallels between us. adoptahighway makes some really strong movements, maybe more classically oriented, and together we form Omega Clash. Dolor is probably more in line with R&B. I dunno, bad at genres, Wednesday Sound is our sound.
DD Being a part of the Brainfeeder and Ninja Tune families must be so rad! How do you feel each label compliments your vision?
L Its been and continues to be a real fuckin privilege, no question. I fell into the same team that worked on Nothing Else for Brainfeeder once I signed with Ninja Tune so it was like coming back home.
