[TMN Resident Artist Interview] Le Castle Vania on Atlanta, his label, and the possibility of wearing a cape on stage

On a sunny afternoon last week we got to sit down with our resident artist Le Castle Vania and talk to him about all things music and much more.

TMN: First off, Dylan, thank you so much for being our Resident Artist this month!

LCV: Thank you guys for having me.

TMN: Now let’s rewind to the beginning, I’m talking about before there was even a Le Castle to be heard of, back to when you were just a little guy. Did you come from a household where music was present? Were you involved in any musical activities such as piano lessons or being in a choir when you were young?

LCV: No, I actually didn’t really start getting involved in music until I was about 16. Really there were no musicians in my house, I mean we enjoyed music but I just kind of started liking music more and more and tinkering with it when I was 16. The first instrument I got was drums, so played those for a while but then started messing with electronic music and started messing with midi-gear before I had a computer. Over time, learning to DJ, I enjoyed electronic music more and more, and experimenting with how to create it that is how I grew into my music. It was all very natural and self-taught, years of doing it and meeting other people and trading production secrets with one another, that’s really where it all comes from. Surrounding yourself with talented people and learning from one another.

TMN: I think a lot of kids really grasp the idea of music and liking bands when they reach middle school and high school, can you remember who you were listening to back then and why you liked those particular people and/or groups?

LCV: Smashing Pumpkins and Nine Inch Nails, it was an interesting time to because that is when bands who were big at that time were starting to experiment with electronic elements. Like Smashing Pumpkins had that one whole album where they used drum machines. I was also into stuff like the Prodigy and The Crystal Method. Electronic music was pretty new in the United States, everyone called it ‘techno’ (laughs). Any way I became interested and inspired by the freshness of those sounds.

10511589_10152264601070488_8521066461487336941_o

It’s that time again. We have a couple of hot little tickets in our ninja glove covered hands, and we really need to hook one of our lucky fans up. This time around, we’re offering up two tickets to what is shaping up to be one hell of a show at Larimer Lounge. Opening up will be local Denver outfit Motion Trap, who are an instrumental electronic act. Playing the middle will be one of our new favorites, Young Rising Sons, who will provide catchy indie rock anthems left and right. If you haven’t checked them out yet, it won’t be long before you’re not only familiar, but also unaware as to how you know every lyric to their songs.

Closing out the night is Little Daylight, who are coming in all the way from Brooklyn NY. This trio (Nikki Taylor, Matt Lewkowicz, Eric Zeiler) have seen tremendous success in the blogosphere with choice remixes of artists like Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros and The Neighbourhood, and also have garnered a significant following through their infectious synth-driven pop originals.

Winner will be contacted by email tomorrow, Friday (8/15) at 10:00AM Mountain Time. PLEASE CHECK YO EMAIL, PEOPLE. This is the only way we can get a hold of you. If the winner does not reply by 11:00AM, we’ll go onto the next person.


UPDATE: Contest is closed. A winner has been notified via email


There are a few rules, of course:
- You must be 18 or over to enter.
- You are responsible for transportation.
- You must bring a valid form of ID to pick up your tickets at the door.
- You must sing “I’m a Little Teapot” in a Ron Burgandy-esque voice while waiting in line.
- We were kidding on that last one. However, if you do accomplish that, you will forever live in TMN contest infamy.



Good luck, ninjas!

Get To Know: 1DAFUL [TMN Exclusive Interview]

ThisIsLifeTMN

Production and DJ duo 1DAFUL have just dropped their explosive electro anthem “This Is Life” via Australian dance label VELCRO. The pair – David A and MC TB1 bring a heightened level of passion and energy to their tracks, previously highlighted in their remix of Rae Sremmurd’s “No Flex Zone.” “This Is Life” is progressive and elevated, packed with dynamic synths, grinding bass and impassioned vocals. We spoke to 1DAFUL to hear more about their music making and taking their sound worldwide.

TMN: A big fuss about EDM is that DJs “just push buttons”, but don’t actually do any work on stage. Judging from your live shows, you clearly put on quite a performance full of energy and fun, that I think everyone needs to experience at least once in their lives. Tell us more about what goes on behind the scenes, any rituals beforehand?

First of all, thanks for the love! I think we come from a school of thought that we are “button pushers”, but you need to know how to push those buttons well, and know what they’re going to trigger to make a crowd go wild. We put a lot of time and effort into deciding what the people want to hear – lots of 1DAFUL mashups, and tracks that will make people lose their minds. We always decide our first track about 5 minutes before we go o n and don’t play the same set but pride ourselves on reading a crowd rather than playing a pre-made set. No pre-show rituals but we have some fun things that we always do during a show, that crowds have started picking up on.

TMN: What’s a day in the life of 1DAFUL?

It depends on the weather! We have a great group of friends; we’re really a family unit. It often consists of us sitting in or around a pool, hanging out, working on our laptops or phones, working out, and chilling. Then depending on the day, it often ends with with a gig and an after party. We love going to new cities and meeting new people, and partying with them in their surroundings.

TMN: Name your top 5 acts right now.

Steve Aoki
Carnage
DVBBS
MAKJ
Adventure Club

TMN: What was the concept behind your latest remix of “No Flex Zone”?

Well, we’re absolutely in love with Melbourne Bounce and we love to spin it. We’re also obsessed with “No Flex Zone”, us and our friends always have that “song of the month” that we just love to vibe out to. NFZ is so good, so we had to do it!

TMN: Have you played any US shows? If so, how do you see the difference in crowd as opposed to Montreal?

We have played a few in the US, and to be honest, we all have something in common; A love for EDM and the classics. All those huge festivals are a testament to everyone worldwide coming together and partying in the same crazy way. We’re also super excited to be playing our first festival, Mystik Sanctuary in OKC, September 5-7. That’s really gonna be our inaugural festival/US gig and we can’t wait!

TMN: Lastly, any plugs to include? Now’s the time!

Hahah, I guess we started with the plug for Mystik Sanctuary in the last question, so come there and party with us and Krewella, Bassnectar and more. We’ve got our debut single “This Is Life” out now and lots of originals to follow. Some cool collaborations are in the works and they’re definitely gonna be fun! Also, we’d be silly to not say follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, SoundCloud and our website: 1DAFUL.com. We always give away free music and exclusive stuff to our website subscribers.

Pick up a copy of “This Is Life” here.

Atomic (LeKtriQue VIP) | FREE DL

Holy banger Batman! This song slapped the sadboi right out of us. If you’ve been looking for something to get hype to, then LeKtriQue’s “Atomic” VIP is exactly what you’re desiring. “The impossible became reality-” well, it became reality when this song metaphorically blew our mind. We didn’t think that it was possible to make such a heavy four to the floor tune like this, but LeKtriQue made it happen with this VIP. Make sure your shoes are laced tight, because the bass on this track my knock you out of your socks!
