Interview: 22 December 2008
Tell us about your music - how did you develop your sound?
Hip hop was the first avenue in which I (N3) engaged in and it allowed me to express myself lyrically and learn the ropes of music production.
Teaming up with Chico, who also came from a Hip Hop Background, our vocal fusion is said to be quite unique.
Electronic music has attracted me to its unlimited capability and variety of sound’s. Seeing the success its having overseas and seeing artists produce music with such raw energy, I thought we could take it to the next level and combine Strong Lyrical projection with no musical rules or structures & a strong distorted sound (like a new aged rock), so technically the sky is the limit, and the sound will keep developing as time progresses…
Tell us about your live show?
The best way to describe this is…raw energy, explosive, original, fun & entertaining. A real case of music bringing people together,
If you want to see a crowd tear down the walls of a club while having a good time, this is a live show you must witness.
You can catch the live show in clubs all across Sydney, Smacktown’s Hot spot “Trashbags @ Kings cross”.
Do you guys collaborate with other producers?
Yes we have currently collaborated with another Australian up and coming Electronic Producer, Redial (sweat it out records).
Also French sensation ‘Danger, which we will be featuring on his next album which is due to be released this coming year.
Not to mention a few other collaborations with well known producers from around the world which are currently in production….
What's coming up in the future?
Australia, Europe, the World??? One may dream as dreaming is the 1st step
& Smacktowns already walking, we hope you stay tuned for the trip.
Australian music is?
Ready for smacktown
