Actually really, really nice

Interview: Anthony Naples

“The way people are represented, they sometimes not only embody a genre, but become a genre themselves. Then what do they have to bring to the table, other than a reiteration of this sound that 50 kids in their bedrooms emulated and made 50 times more “fresh,” y’know? Especially with dance music, every release is highly scrutinized but you only have 10 or 12 minutes to say your part. It’s tricky. But then Joy Orbison or Blawan, for example, have completely ridden themselves of that tag they were given from one or two records. There’s no coincidence in that, they’ve taken control of their situation and do it on their own terms.”
