Mt. Eden Discuss Influences, Hiphopopotamus vs. Rhymenoceoros, and Maternal Love (Or Lack Thereof) [TMN EXCLUSIVE]

two door cienma club

Few things are absolutely certain when it comes to New Zealand-based Mt. Eden. For starters, fans will most assuredly be won over by their inventive, lush, and textural melodic dubstep, trap, and DnB sets, featuring a vast catalog of original work. This much we already knew, having seen them perform in the past. What we didn’t know, but do now, is that any conversation had with members Jesse Cooper and Harley Rayner is sure to result in hilarity.

We were lucky enough to catch up with this cheeky duo down at Beta Nightclub for both of the aforementioned experiences. And, as we said, hilarity ensued.

TMN: Hey guys. Thanks for taking the time to chat with us tonight. Welcome to the Mile High City! This is your second show at Beta, correct?

HR: Thanks man! This is our second show.

TMN: You guys play all over the world, how does Beta compare to some of the other renowned clubs out there?

HR: Imagine a pirate ship, run by Darth Vader.

JC: And Yoda.

HR: Yes, and Yoda. And you put them together and it’s a team operation. Everything is put together super tight. Everyone’s got walkie talkies. There are no problems whatsoever. The sound system is perfect.

JC: The force is strong here.

TMN: So, Electric Forest is definitely on our festival bucket list. How was your experience there? How does the vibe feel in comparison to some of the other larger festivals?

JC: With Electric Forest, it was a real passionate crowd. The forest is so decorated. The vibe was amazing. The security was overly nice. It didn’t feel corporate. The artists were really cool. We met up with 12th Planet, Snails, Vaski, Black Tiger Sex Machine…and everyone was really cool. It was like a family gathering.

HR: There’s no other festival where Macy Grey sings, Mr Carmack plays the drums, and it’s all fun and games. There’s no pressure on anyone to be in a scene.

JC: And there were so many back-to-back sets. It was Skrillex and Snails and Vaski doing DJ sets together. It was really cool! Everyone was mixing and mingling and everyone included everyone. You never felt left out.

HR: We could talk forever about how cool it is. It was one of the best festivals we’ve played at just due to the energy.

Tommy Lee Dives Into His Long Transition Into Electronic Music [TMN EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW]

Tommy Lee

Tommy Lee is a legend when it comes to music. You may simply think Motley Crue, but Tommy has had his hands in several musical pots over the years, including side projects like Methods of Mayhem, his own solo work and collaborations with artists like Nick Thayer, Bloody Beetroots, Violet Chachki, along with his current fiance SOFI, who he produced past and upcoming records for. Additionally, Tommy Lee has been DJing since the early 2000’s, both alone and with his homie DJ Aero, even landing on his close friend Deadmau5’s Meowington Hax tour in 2011 alongside Feed Me, A-Trak, and Fatboy Slim.

After killing the game with Motley Crue for so long, Tommy is ready to make his full transition into electronic music. It’s something that has been festering over the years, as one can tell from his lengthy, but patched resume with electronic music. Records have been released here and there on mau5trap, Ultra and Black Hole Recordings, and he has DJed places like Virgin’s mobile’s 10th Birthday, Download Festival as well as Ultra, which was actually his third gig ever with DJ Aero. Recently, we caught up with Tommy to talk about his past, along with what is to come with the new beginning that is on the horizon.

TMN: What was the first thing that got you into electronic music?

Tommy Lee: I got my first Mac IICi in 1984, and I started messing with the program Digital Performer. I started editing and chopping guitars and drums and I got into MIDI. It just opened up my whole world! I was like “oh my god, you can do that!?” You could flip the sample backwards and cut it and stutter it. I lost my mind basically. Once you realize what you can do with the computer, you just lose it. I got into electronic music and started messing with everything I could get my hands on. Probably one of my earliest influences was like harder industrial music like Nine Inch Nails, and Skinny Puppy; more the aggro shit. Even before then, I always gravitated towards beats, because I’m a drummer. Before computers, I was digging disco and funk. It all just makes sense why I gravitated towards electronic music.

TMN: Who are some artists that you are currently into?

[Ambient/Dubstep] Allies For Everyone – All Gone (Kodomo Remix)

Allies For Everyone
All Gone (Kodomo Remix)

Sometimes with the copious amounts of music being released digitally nowadays through an exponential number of online retailers and publications -maybe even all too often- a sonically textured soundscape which may require a bit more active listening gets passed over for a quick and catchy melody highlighting whichever genre-du-jour may be the hippest to write about at the moment. However, some tunes break through the mold and command attention through their own set of aural rules. The latest from  genre-skirting electronic producer Kodomo falls into such a category, finding the New York based artist taking Allies For Everyone‘s (who premiered his own remix of his single “Bunker” with us last month) latest single “All Gone” into his own realm of silky, two-step melodica. From the careful droning of delicate drums to precisely pinned piano, and the reverb laden use of AFE’s original vocal track; Kodomo’s crafted a completely alternate view into “All Gone”. Deep and rich t extures are both built and torn down all at once by Kodomo, encasing a hermetic heart at its his revision’s core. For our seasoned electronic listeners, and fans of Boards of Canada, early Emancipator and Baths we’re highly recommending Kodomo’s remix to cut right through the Summer heat. Get more of Allies For Everyone from his busy Soundcloud here, and check out Kodomo’s “All Gone” remix above.
