An increasingly prominent figure in the bass music scene, and having earned lauds from industry heavyweights such as Skrillex and Borgore, California-based DJ/producer, Lumberjvck has just released a brand new collaborative EP with esteemed Mau5trap artist, Le Castle Vania, as a free download for fans. Entitled You Know My Name, this release is comprised of four hard-hitting, and dynamic tracks, each loaded with dark synths, gritty bass lines, and grooving percussion rhythms. Representative of each artist’s distinctive sound, this EP is undoubtedly a treat for bass music enthusiasts, and can be streamed and downloaded above.
Having demonstrated his proficiency within the Dubstep and Trap music genres, Lumberjvck has begun to garner a sizeable fan base on the basis of several noteworthy remixes, as well as original tunes. Not surprisingly, his latest remix, which was a genre-bending take on David Heartbreak’s “War Of The Roses” turned the heads of many industry figures, and electronic music enthusiasts alike. This remix is also available as a free download, and can be streamed above.
We were also fortunate to have been able to ask Lumberjvck a bit about his musical background, as well as his newest releases in an exclusive interview. Check it out below!
1. With the frequent releases of new tunes and remixes, you’ve garnered a remarkable fan base in just a few years. What first prompted you to start producing and remixing?
“I first got into producing electronic music when I was 15 years old. I went to an all ages event at the Roxy in Hollywood, CA called “Spin The Bottle” featuring Kill The Noise. After that performance I knew I wanted to make music for the rest of my life.”
2. You play various live instruments, can you tell us more about how you got involved playing those, and how your musical background has had an effect on your productions?
“I started playing piano, guitar, and drums at a very young age. My parents sent me to a camp where I learned how to play and write with a live band. It was here that I learned the basic foundation to my musical prowess. My parents were also very fond of taking me to concerts (Santana, Earth Wind & Fire, The Doobie Brothers, etc.) All this early musical stimulation helped shape me into the musician I am today. “
3. You’ve released a brand new EP with Le Castle Vania very shortly. Did you have a particular vision in mind when creating this EP? Do you feel that you were able to fully actualize that vision?
“When me and Le Castle Vania got together we had no idea we were going to be making an EP. I showed him a few things I was working on and next thing I knew we were almost done with our first track. We decided to repeat our process because of how stoked we were when we heard our sounds combine and that’s when the EP happened.”
“I’ve been a big fan of LCV since I was 15. So you can imagine how awesome it was for me to hear from my manager that I would be meeting him and hanging out at his studio. After we met, making music together was very natural.”
5. You’re scheduled to be playing some sizeable festival gigs this summer. Can you name some staple tracks (from either yourself, or another artist) that will be featured in your sets?
“Indeed! and I am so very stoked. I’ll be playing a bunch of my unreleased ones that are top secret, but I will spill the beans on a few tracks I’ll be supporting:
1) NGHTMRE – STREET
2) Ramzoid – Grasslands
3) Eptic – Spellbound
4) Trampa – Hit ‘Em
5) Fawks – Riddim”
