Aweminus just released an EP called “UGHH” through NSD: Black Label. I got an awesome opportunity to interview Aweminus and talk a little bit about his new EP.
Born in Las Vegas, Aweminus has manifested into one of the most promising emerging artists in bass music. Since 2012, his unique take on dubstep and drum & bass has garnered the support of artists such as Excision, Rusko, Funtcase, Skism and many more. Aweminus first became known within the dubstep community after promotional clips of his early productions “Viper” and “The Beast” began circulating on Youtube in early 2012. Since then he’s had many releases with legendary labels such as NSD: Black Label, Bassrush Records, Circus Records’ DPMO and more. Read the interview below!
Hi Aweminus! How are you doing?
As good as I an aspiring artist in 2020 can be I guess!
Take us back to the beginning, how did you found your passion into producing electronic music?
It all started in like 2008 or 2009 with me trying to write music to put in mods I was making for DOOM 2 back in middle school. I was a huge fan of Drum & Bass, Dubstep and House Music, etc at the time and realized that I could try and write something somewhat resemblant of my favorite artists. Didn’t really make anything good or take it seriously until 2012.
You have almost 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’ve been writing music for a bit longer than that actually. Seeing dubstep take so many different shapes and sizes over the years, I’ve realized it’s really a reptilian shapeshifting orphan of a genre isn’t it? Always trying to take us by surprise. I think that’s what we, as fans, love about it.
What are your favourite elements within your recent releases that still call back to/is heavily drawn from the original inspiration behind the Aweminus project?
I like to make the sub in my songs like they used to in old jump up drum & bass tracks.
How have you been staying productive during the quarantine period?
Just trying to stay on top of releases and writing new music really. Gotta get back on the twitch streams more as well. I’m just walking on eggshells with all those new copyright restrictions from twitch.
You released an EP called “UGHH” through NSD: black label. Could you share the creative process behind about this EP?
It was kindof a lazy project. I have this project that I pulled some things from for “Death Club” with Gentlemens Club. I just opened that project file (my solo project file) and started making it as insane as possible for a gig at SVDDEN DEATH’s show at the Hollywoood Palladium. Yeah, basically it was designed specifically to be a sonic weapon.
What is your favorite song from the EP?
It’s a mixup between “Cracc Rocc” and “UGHH“. I really like both of those honestly. I’m not good at picking favorites.
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?
Neonix, Digitist, Executioner, Moley, Phonon, Vanfleet, and 7INN.
Would you like to share something with the followers of Let the Bass Get You?
It’s not just the Bass that will get you this Halloween!!
