Thanks for your time Pump Pump!
What are some words you would use to describe this year (2019)?
-Frankly, surprising…It’s been very exciting to see the reaction we have been getting from our music. We are just doing what we love and having fun.
Can you tell us what you like best about your favorite track produced in 2019?
-We loved collaborating with the vocalist on Night Show and we’re happy with the vibe that we set for the remix. All in all, the track was super fun to work on.
Can you tell us about the new project you will be working on in 2020?
-Cant go into too much detail, but we have plenty of groovy tunes in th worx. 🙂
Imagine walking inside the studio; please, can you speak to me through a typical day? What are your habits?
-Considering that all three of us live in different locations…When we do get together in the studio, usually we have a track laid out and it just needs final tweaks and adjustments. This is a whole team effort to make sure we put out the best quality tracks out and we are all fully happy with the end product. Also, there are lots joking and shit talking during this process…
How will you choose the software and add-ons you use?
-It depends on what we are trying to do and what vibe we are shooting for…For example: we have been using Ana2 a lot lately for our bass sounds and we typically like to add a little bit of saturation using Slate Digital “tape machine”-just to give it a little more spice and flavor.
Are you an avid believer in learning an instrument?
-Yes! Never hurts.
What is the only piece of DJ / production equipment that you can not live without?
So what are your thoughts on technology aiding the technique of DJing?
-We think it’s great as long as Dj’s aren’t just mixing two tracks. Technology has allowed on the fly remixes, and studio edits that can really set up apart from the rest. Use the tools provided to really give people an experience on dance floor.
Any artists / DJs / producers, in particular, that really influenced you?
-The list would too long to name everyone, but we have really been digging a lot of artists on Punks and Broken, as well as the U.K. bass scene.
What is the music scene like at this moment in your country?
-Depends on what genre you are into. As far as breaks goes, some cities are better than others.
Often, certain cities are related to certain sounds and sub-genres. Do you think that living in your city is reflected in your music?
-Absolutely. D.C has a large drum and bass and house scene, which we believe has influenced us tremendously as producers.
