Crywolf Dives Into Cataclasm Project & Teases New Live Show [TMN Interview]

One of the most widely talked about albums of the year coming from an independent artist is Cataclasm. If you have yet to hear this mystifying musical undertaking from Crywolf, then you better do it as soon as possible. Luckily, we have a few tracks off the album to share with you, along with an interview where we chat about the LP, Okami Records, and what’s to come from Crywolf’s new live show.

Justin Phillips was at a turning point in his musical career; one that led him to a true getaway for the creation of the twelve track project called Cataclasm. Instead of simply taking things easy once he had success, as well as support from artists like Ellie Goulding, Skrillex, Crystal Method and more, Crywolf decided he needed to make a change and push himself, along with music in general. The result was a extraordinary indie meets electronic LP that has truly shaken things up in electronic music. We welcomed Crywolf to the dojo to share more, so check out what he had to say, along with some of our favorite singles from Cataclasm.

TMN: How did you get into music originally?

Crywolf: I always loved music, but I was never that great at it. I made some random acoustic and rock stuff growing up, but it was… pretty cringe-worthy. I went through this sort of personal renaissance when I was 20 and it changed a lot of the ways I saw art. I started making stuff I was super proud of, and really channeling deeper stuff. I started making electronic music as a hobby while I was going to school for economics, and it just really clicked. The stuff I was making caught on, I started touring a lot, and eventually had to drop out cause I was touring too much of the time.
