The fine gentleman currently being featured has quickly become a favorite of mine. Anyone who caught my ableton set at Jade Garden may recognize bits of his Gold Panda remix, posted below for free download. Here’s to The Get! Go forth and please make many more tunes.
DD: OK. “Inception”..sexy and dirty!!!! Cannot wait to play this in DJ sets here in Seattle. Welcome to Disco Droppings!
TG: The welcome is well-received. A little bit about that song; Inception was a track that I popped out in an afternoon a while back. I haven’t finished it proper yet, but I think it will have it’s place as a banger track when it’s done. I plan on releasing it under a different alias though.
DD: Was there a certain show or moment when you knew electronic music was “it”?
TG: Discovering Warp records is when I knew without a doubt electronic music was for me.
DD: How would you describe the sound your developing?
TG: I suppose there is a certain timbre to my overall sound but it’s hard for me to put a finger on my own work. Everything ends up being different stylistically although at this moment in time I am developing what my friends and I call Lush Haus. In order to develop that sound as well as showcase whatever else we happen to be into we started a monthly down here at this traditionally indie rock venue called Propaganda in Lake Worth Florida.
DD: I have to keep going back to your overall music mood, it is so sexxxxxxxxxxxy. What artists really help you hold this sexy mentality?
TG: Camel by Flying Lotus immediately comes to mind as it definitely has some dirty sex factor that I really fell in love with when I first heard it. I wouldn’t say that any artists are particularly sexy as to me it’s more based on the track but at the moment I am really into Mount Kimbie and James Blake. Also Gold Panda is my number one go to artist right now for inspiration with the Lush Haus sound I’m experimenting with.
DD: What plans are you making as an artist for 2011?
TG: Plans for 2011 include an EP/LP, finalizing a live set, DJing a lot more, and touring the east coast with Sumsun (Check out the debut album, Samo Milagro on Leaving Records).
DD: Any shows your dying to see this year?
TG: I usually don’t plan anything more than a week in advance so the answer is no, not yet.
DD: Last words?
TG: Much love to the 561 scene, Robb F, MoxSox, Gustav&Renault and my Lush Haus brothers.
