George Bashington Productions are to thank for putting this show together (FB event), with Live For The Funk sponsoring. Lunice brings fresh energy and effortless style to the hip hop world. Now 23, he’s done remixes for prominent labels such as Mad Decent, XL Recordings and Young Turks. A part of the LuckyMe collective (Machinedrum, Jacques Greene, Rustie), he released the One Hundred EP and the Stacker Upper EP in 2011. I’ve been especially taken by “Runnin”; the smooth beat he did for Azealia Banks, as well as TNGHT; his collaboration with Hudson Mohawke. Tomorrow marks Lunice’s first Seattle appearance. All hip-hop enthusiasts, and those drawn to future dance sounds should give him a warm welcome and come to Neumos.



Kastle from San Francisco joins Lunice. Be sure to catch the whole lineup, with sets from RL Grime and my buddy Cedaa happening early on.

Kingdom is the shit. My favorite set at Decibel Festival 2011.  He’s playing tonight at Chop Suey – GO



DD This weekend feels like a Fade To Mind takeover, between your show tonight (Chop Suey), and MikeQ on Saturday (Lo-Fi), very exciting! How would you describe your show tonight, for those who may be unaware? 

K Total Freedom, Massacooramaan, Cedaa and myself will be showing people what Fade to Mind artists always do, playing a lot of custom edits, unreleased tracks, and club music with a wide range of emotion and intensity.

DD You’ve brought Cedaa into the Fade To Mind crew, what an incredible oppurtunity. I’ve seen him perform a few times now and it’s rad to see him alongside such a progressive group of artists. What about Cedaa do you find most inspiring?

K Cedaa’s style is high energy and bubbling but also moody at times. Very clean too, and his DJ sets are impeccable and far reaching.

If you’ve been following the last few posts on Disco Droppings, you’ll notice that there are 2 major shows happening this weekend. Cedaa’s interview is number 4 of a list of performers, playing either at Chop Suey (Friday) or Lo-Fi (Saturday). Cedaa happens to be playing both, and his bumpin XLR8R podcast can be heard here



DD Hi Cedaa, welcome to Disco Droppings. I’ve done a few features with III Cosby who runs Car Crash Set, excited to collaborate with the label more. 

C Thanks :] Yeah Cosby is great, same goes for the whole CCS camp. I encourage everyone to check out their catalog. Quality and diversity.

DD I think I saw you at the Night Slugs showcase for Decibel Festival..did you enjoy yourself? That was my favorite showcase for sure! Fun group of guys.

C That was my favorite event of the festival as well. Great energy, stellar sets from all involved. The Baltic was buzzing that night. The tag-team was definitely a moment. Really excited to play with Kingdom this Friday at Fade To Mind # 5 Seattle Takeover, along with Massacooraman and Total Freedom, two other Fade To Mind artists. Friday’s show should prove a night to remember as well. Plus MikeQ is in town the following night! Can’t wait.

DD Looking at young producers from NW starting to establish themselves, you’re name stands out for gaining national and international recognition. Artists from Car Crash Set and Dropping Gems are getting strong visibility as well which is rad. Now that you’ve teamed up with Kingdom and Fade To Mind, how has your perspective/vision changed or evolved? How do you hope your upcoming Fade To Mind release will resonate with the music community?

C Artists from CCS and Dropping gems are definitely doing their thing right now. Astronomar has been working hard as well. Warms my heart when I see local artists I appreciate and respect  getting some attention. They deserve it :]

Id like to think my music and tastes are ever-evolving. Joining Fade To Mind has influenced that evolution, but many other things have as well. I am always becoming myself lol. I’m taking more time with my next ep than I have in the past. Bit of a change from the workflow of some of my previous releases. 

I aim to put out a record that is both provocative and fun. Unorthodox club music. 


DD Has your studying of Cultural Anthropology influenced your work as Cedaa?

C I suppose it has in a way. I find regional music scenes extremely interesting, specially within America. Juke, Bounce, Jersey Club, the many flavors of hip hop, etc. Internet culture appeals to me in the same way. Anthro theory applies in to many situations not to notice. Many others who do not study anthropology share these same passions tho. 

DD What’s the biggest challenge you face as an artist?

C Getting thru school probably. 

DD A few of your all time favorite songs?
