So happy for Branden Clarke AKA IG88, he’s had a string of amazing sets in Seattle. I’ll be going nuts at the show tomorrow, here’s my short interview with the spaced out wonder.

DD: Welcome back IG88, What music stuff’s been going on with you lately?
Well hello you sexy molecular combination of Patrick Swayze & Randy Newman. I have been working on quite a few projects, the latest being my newest release to come out in aboot a month called “Blackberry Light”. The release features vocals by Jenni Potts (http://www.jennipotts.com/) & Mike Harris (www.idiotpilot.com) and bass by my long time collaborator Ricky Wilson, there is also a track featuring an artist named Isum (http://soundcloud.com/isum) we are also currently working on compiling a release. He lives in Switzerland so we email Ableton sessions back and fourth to each other, making it a very inspiring project. I also have been spending a lot of time doing remix’s for people including 7 deadly Records artist Sphyramid. I am going to be giving away a free EP of recent remix’s I have done. Here is a link to it for anyone is interested, should be updated on my site soon.
DD: You’ve had some recent shows with highly established artists such as Matthew Dear and Tiny Vipers, plus Gold Panda coming up this Wednesday. Congratulations first off! What did these shows mean to you, and what are you looking forward to most on the 23rd?
I have been working a lot on my live sets to make sure that I am not boring myself on stage, trying to include a lot of live sequencing, hand percussion and instrumentation. It has been really motivating and surreal to be playing with such amazing artists in Seattle, constantly pressuring me to step up my performance button mashing swag points. I look forward to huffing oven cleaner and eating 6 pounds of marshmallows before going on stage where I will do an experimental set of Anne Frank monologues into a vocoder for an entire hour..
DD: Favorite song of the moment?
Tough question, but my favorite song of the moment would have to be either “No Encores” by The Notwist or the Danger Doom remix of “Somersault” by Zero 7
See you on the dancefloor!
