[010 BULLETCAST] Codes Guest Mix
How did you end up collaborating with the Psycho Disco label and Treasure Fingers? How has that relationship affected your music?
I ended up collaborating with Treasure Fingers a while back when he was still living in Brooklyn. I put out a cover of Ghost Town DJ's "My Boo" under a different alias that he use to play years ago. I actually met him in Miami at WMC that year. After I did my first release as Codes for Slow Roast, which was then a sister label to Fools Gold, we started working on some tracks in the studio. We put out a track on Hed Kandi with Amy Douglas and still have a few getting ready for release. I think about a year ago I sent him a play list with like 14 unsigned tracks that I was shopping around looking for the right home. He called me later that week and we started setting up my first release. Working with the whole team over there has been an awesome experience while getting to put out the records I want to get out to the peoples.
Tell us about your new EP release, "Bumps", and what went into it production?
"Bumps" was born from me taking influence of having a super BASSed out car sound systems when I was younger. My first car was a 1989 Grand Marquis Station Wagon. I put a big ass speaker box with two Kicker subs in it. Where I grew up, there was a dude my cousin knew who would rob peoples systems and had a garage full of car sound systems. That's where I bought my first system along with a tape deck. There was a tape in the deck from whoever this guy robbed and it was called DJ Magic Mike Bass Is The Name Of The Game. That definitely played a big part in my early exposure to bass music. But long story short, if you had a system in your car your car had "Bumps." With that being said feel free to post up videos of you jamming to "Bumps" on your own car or home bumps! #ShowMeYourBumps
You will be releasing a music video for "Bumps." Have you ever made a video before and can you give us a little hint at what we can expect from it release?
The video will have some car bumping system shake your window glass vibe!
Any new projects or collaborations coming up as we approach the end of 2016?
Besides a new track with Treasure Fingers, I have something coming out on This Ain't Bristol and Weapons in the next few months.
