Since cutting their teeth in 2011 signing initially to Never Say Die, Dodge & Fuski have forged their own path, going on to found cutting edge label Disciple.
A regular name across the world of bass music for nearly a decade, they’ve toured as wide and far as Europe, America, Asia and Australia, collaborating with artists such as 12th Planet and Virtual Riot, as well as remixing for artists such as The Chainsmokers, Getter and many more. While their style has evolved with the times over the years, their quirky influences have been a mainstay of the D&F sound since the beginning.
Hi Dodge & Fuski! How are you doing?
I’d normally say Pretty Good but truth is it’s a weird year isn’t it
Take us back to the beginning, how did you found your passion into producing electronic music?
I grew up in a very small town in Wales. I didn’t really know what I wanted to do after school and I almost fell into it to be honest. It came down to a choice between a music technology or electrician course in a nearby college thay my friends were doing, and I picked music.
You have over 10 years’ experience of working with electronic dance music. You have seen how the electronic music has developed. What is your opinion about todays ”Dubstep”?
I don’t think there’s anything particularly unusual about music genres evolving – Dubstep is definitely on the more extreme side of genre evolutions but I don’t have a particularly strong view on that being a good or bad thing. It’s evolved because the audience shifted and tastes evolved.
How have you been staying productive during the quarantine period?
I bought a house just before the pandemic hit so that has become my main focus really, we’re building a purpose built studio in the basement along with a lot of other work and I’ve tried to be as hands on as possible with most of the steps.
You released an EP called “Pretty Good Mood” through Disciple label. Could you share the creative process behind about this EP?
I don’t think there was anything particularly unusual about the process really other than it being focused on collabs. It wasn’t particularly by design, but I had a few things I’d worked on with other people and it just sort of turned out that those were the tracks that were there and they made sense as a package. When it came to come up with a name / artwork idea for the EP I think a lot of people thought it was some kind of “shots fired” thing at Travis Scott, but to be honest we just made a list of ideas we thought were funny that worked with the Dodge & Fuski characters we’ve developed, and it was the idea we all liked the best.
What is your favorite song from the EP?
Probably the opening tracks with Adair!
This quarantine period has been hard for music industry so now it’s time to support and support, any interesting new producers you would recommend to follow?
I think this new future riddim movement is pretty interesting at the moment. There’s too many names to mention but it’s probably the freshest ideas I’ve heard in years.
