If you’re in Seattle tomorrow night, Chop Suey is the place to be (3/23 TIX). I’ve been hammering this Boysnoize Records showcase through flyering, Twitter and Disco Droppings, and it’s finally here! Housemeister and Djedjotronic will be performing tomorrow, and they were kind enough to talk with me for a bit. This feature, along with the Strip Steve interview before it, will give you a snapshot of who these artists are and what you’ll be witnessing at Chop Suey. With countless releases, Housemeister has a wonderfully distorted aesthetic with sound and a quirky outlook on life. Hear his “Music Is Awesome” album. Djedjotronic has been delivering incredible track after incredible track, always pursuing edgy and forward thinking grooves. Featured on the Miami Noize 2012 compilation 

 

HOUSEMEISTER INTERVIEW

DD Your personality in the interviews i’ve seen/read, especially the one a few years back for “Love The Alien” is hilarious. You seem to have a friendly, laidback and wacky mindset. How would you describe youself? 

H I’m just a very cool freidenker ;] I do what I want at any time.

 

DD I remember watching the music video for “Shizzo” a long time ago but didnt hear the release till recently. This is some solid, distorted realness. Boys Noize and yourself producing together sounds extremely fun and effortless. What do you admire most about your label boss, Boys Noize? 

H He is a good boy and he never stops working. He’s very inspiring and we’re very good friends. That’s it bitches! 

DD I know you’re very fond of machines and other hardware. Will any of these be used for your set at Chop Suey Seattle?

H No, I will just play a dj-set.

 

DD Will you be bringing some Housemeister stickers to Seattle, so I can put them up everywhere? ;]

H Sure! :]

DJEDJOTRONIC INTERVIEW 

DD Ever since I heard your remix of “Bedrock”, you quickly became a favorite of mine. I’d say your one of the freshest dance producers around. There is incredible diversity between your original tracks and remixes. What keeps you focused to continually push your style and expand the sonic story of Djedjotronic? 

D For me the only way to not get bored with music is trying out new stuff. I like to do the new things people won’t expect. Also I like to challenge myself and go out of my comfort zone..

 

DD For those who havent seen you live, what will your set sound like in comparison to the other BNR artists playing at Chop Suey tomorrow? 

D It’s just better.. haha ;]

DD The short preview of “Miamite” for Miami Noize 2012 is exciting. A a pro mix of old and new vibes. Will you be playing the full version in your upcoming Seattle show? 

D Maybe I’ll play the full version, depending on the vibe..It’s not a banger for  the dance floor, but I had so much fun doin’ it!

 

DD Last year you performed at Fabric alongside Shadow Dancer, Boys Noize, Housemeister and Jokers Of The Scene. What was that experience like? I’ve enjoyed many Fabriclives, especially Simian Mobile Disco and Pearson Sound. 

D It’s a good club with an amazing soundsystem.. I loved it.

DD Lastly, What do you enjoy most about the U.S? What do you and the other BNR boyz hope to accomplish with this U.S tour?

D Goin to In-n-Out Burgers. Meeting Katy Perry.

DD How are you doing? Will this be your first Seattle show?

SS All good! Super stoked to be in Seattle for the first time and play at Chop Suey..

DD The electronic community here in Seattle has a love for house and techno, and the younger crowd is aware of electro sounds. However, I feel this Boysnoize Records night has a unique and progressive take on all of these genres, that hasn’t been presented much. What kind of a set will you be playing?

SS I usually play a mixture of House and techno, old and new stuff, with a ghetto feeling I guess… I just play whatever I feel no matter what style it is, and people usually tell me it makes sense ahah.

 

DD Carl Craig played yours and Das Glow’s track “Calcium” in his essential mix. What an honor! 

SS Yeah it’s crazy! I dont know how it happened, I guess he got the promo and liked it… I just remember discovering this one day, I had just woken up, and Das Glow was at my place, so I ran to tell him. Good times…

 

DD Your new track “Strollin'” concludes the BNR release, Miami Noize 2012, which has been just released. Its got a breezy feel, what was the inspiration for this one?

SS Summer I guess? My girlfriend told me this track always puts her in a good mood when she hears it, so I though it would be perfect for the Miami sampler, has this sunny delight feeling. 

DD How much do you enjoy smoking cigarettes while djing? I love it! 

SS Love it! Doable in Seattle though?

DD Probably not :[ – What can we expect from Strip Steve in the near future? I heard some rumors ;] Are we going to here some new stuff at the show?

SS Yeah I’m putting the last touch on my debut album at the moment, so I’m trying out some of the tracks in clubs when I feel it.. So yah, keep your ears open ;]
