INTERVIEW WITH PROSECUTE!

Prosecute’s origin story begins in the music capital of the world that is Austin, Texas. At 23 years old he’s cemented himself in to the bass music scene as one of the most promising up & comers in recent memory with no plans of halting his growth anytime soon. He specializes in chillingly heavy dubstep mixed with elements from the golden-age of raving in the 90’s & early 2000’s that make for a must-see live experience. His debut EP was released on Bassweight Records who’s renown for featuring artists such as Aweminus, Svdden Death, Code Pandorum & many more.


Hi Prosecute! How are you doing?
It’s been a rollercoaster of a year but overall I’m in a good place mentally right now. Recently been trying to focus on my mental/physical health before my music and it’s reflected well when I do get around to writing new stuff.

Take us back to the beginning, how did you found your passion into producing electronic music?
First show I ever went to was an all ages Getter show in 2014 and I haven’t looked back since. Before that I listened to a lot of Excision, The Frim, Downlink, Deadmau5, Skrillex (obviously) etc… basically always had a love for electronic music and going to shows made me realize that I was capable of being those guys that I looked up to behind the decks. Started DJing at 14, dropped out of college in 2016.. and got in to producing music seriously after quitting my job in real estate in the beginning of 2018. I had always toyed around with the idea of it but never took it seriously until then.. and dropped everything I was doing to commit to that vision.

How have you been staying productive during the quarantine period?
I’m not gonna lie I haven’t made nearly as much music as I wish I could have during all of this madness. With that being said my mental/physical health is in a really good place right now and I’m getting back to the grind as we speak.

You released an EP called “Testify” through Bassweight Records. Could you share the creative process behind about this EP?
Bassweight
’s been in my corner for a while and I really appreciate what those guys have done for me since we first crossed paths. This EP was the first time I’ve been able to look back on a body of work and really feel proud of my progression as an artist. It felt great to get it out there and the response has been great so far.. super grateful for that.

What is your favorite song from the EP?
I’d have to say Enforcer or Inertia.. just because those ideas came so quickly and when the songs were finished I was really stoked with how they came out. I’m pretty self-critical of my work but those songs made me feel really good to listen back on and reflect on the process.

Who do you hope to work with in the future, if you could name top 3 producers/artists to work with and why?
Svdden Death
, Subtronics, & Marauda are definitely at the top of my list. Outside of the producer world I’m just a huge fan of those guys and Danny & Jesse specifically have been really good to me thus far. Although, I would like to have a death match with Danny using longswords or some kind of spiky maces once quarantine is over.

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?
Absolutely yes.. while they may not be new to music, they deserve much more recognition than they get at the moment. Akeos, Neonix, Syzy, Voltra, Vanfleet, Phonon, Mad Dubz, & too many more to name. They’ll be headlining international festival circuits sooner than later.

Would you like to share something with the followers of Let the Bass Get You?
Yes.. amidst all this fuckery don’t lose sight of the fact that life is sick. Don’t get lost in the infinite depths of social media, go outside, enjoy your friends & family, and as cliche as it sounds just focus on stuff that makes you happy. That’s all that matters. Now.. back to making demonic dubstep!
