To get in the spirit of their performance tonight @ the DIM MAK HOLIDAY PARTY and final Dim Mak Tuesday of the year, I grabbed another quick-hitter interview from the Mexicali based duo Climbers. We wanted to touch base on their recent successes and shows, and specifically tonight in LA. The two members Jay Blakk and Kiko deal respectively answered the questions taking turns, but kept it right to the point which is what we all like… enjoy :)

GDD: You guys are from Mexicali… has there been a strong influence in where your from that shaped the music you produce and DJ? Or where has your inspiration come from?

Jay Blakk – Well I think some has come from Mexicali, because here when we started the scene was all about bringing the best music and quality, in terms of mixing. So, it was harsh but also so powerful because it brought out the best in you. And obviously from the promoters that took chances and brought incredible acts that were giving us a new perspective of electronic music.

GDD: You recently released “House Arrest” on Turbo Recordings TWIN TURBO label. How did the connection come to be with Tiga and what was that like?

Kiko Deal – Well we respect and love Tiga’s music, so our manager sent the track to Tiga and he loved it so it was a quick choice for them to sign it.

GDD: Your Winter tour is already underway… what are you excited about most playing in the US and what do you think will differ from performing in Central America?

Jay Blakk – Well we just played in Detroit and Denver and the second leg is still to come, we already saw differences is the weather obviously, but what we are loving is that the people are eager to hear our music and especially music that does not come often on the radio. They are willing to go out in the cold to hear the music they loved and we got a lot of respect for that.

GDD: You’re playing tonight alongside our mutual friends Thee Cool Cats @ Dim Mak Studios. Can we expect a higher energy in your set because you get to play with friends? Or what does that do you for your guys night?

Kiko Deal – Playing with those guys will be great. But when we play with friends it doesn’t change the perspective of our sets, it only includes a higher level of confidence since you’re with friends. But at the end of the day the most important thing is the audience and how to interact and connect with them, with the music we love and play.

GDD: What’s the one thing you HAVE to do/see while you’re in LA?

Jay Blakk – A Lakers Game.
Kiko Deal – Going to the Roxy Theatre.

The long-awaited Hypercolour release from Justin Martin and Eats Everything is finally right around the corner, with the digital release on Monday the 11th. Eats has said that this is the first of many collaboration EPs between the jolly duo, and based on the sound from this EP, we can’t wait. With many collaborations, it’s easy to tell who does most of the legwork, but with Feather Fight, the talent from both producers truly shines through individually as well as synergistically. Preview below and pick it up on Monday. √+

2013 is shaping up to be a prospering year for 808s and ‘booty-tech’ basslines.
