Been a great week hanging with our Colorado family, Tomorrow night at the Fox is gonna be ridiculous!! We’ve got our homey’s based out of Colorado, Frequent C vs Candyman, and Dailon, to join. Grab your tickets early here
Thanks to BoulderPM for throwing this up!
BoulderPM: Are you excited to be playing in Colorado?
Kendrick: Definitely excited to be back in Boulder playing The Fox, I love that venue. We played The Fox last time we were out here and people got crazy.
BPM: How does your new album (Air Mail) compare to previous albums. Anything new/different, or is it the same Two Fresh that the fans love?
Kendrick: There’s definitely a difference on this album than our previous ones. A lot of the stuff on this album, and just what we’ve been doing recently, is a lot more of our own original composition and a lot less sample based material.
BPM: What does it add having Colby (drummer for Two Fresh) throwing down with you guys?
Kendrick: Oh man, it definitely makes a difference having Colby. Not only is it more intense with a live drummer, but Colby just brings it to the next level. He has such a unique style to his playing. I’ve definitely played with drummers who have been similar to Colby and as good, but he just has his own flare to him that separates him from the rest.
BPM: What do you guys do to set yourself apart from the plethora of dj’s that are out there?
Kendrick: Right now, where the scene is, people really want to have shows as live as possible and want the DJ to be working. We have really tried to embrace that. Also, we are doing a lot of hip-hop in our work and we’re really trying to bring a new light to that, we really want to keep hip-hop alive in our music and elsewhere. We’re also putting our own twist on it though to keep Two Fresh what it is.
BPM: Did you have any major inspiration when you first got into making and producing music?
Kendrick: Well, I was born in Brooklyn and moved to Tennessee at a young age. My friend’s older brother who we used to roll around with would always be listening to hip-hop so a lot of our inspiration comes from hip-hop. Artists like Method Man, Red Man, Wu-Tang, and A Tribe Called Quest.
BPM: Do you and your brothers’ style differ at all?
Kendrick: Yea, there is definitely a difference in our styles. That really helps us balance each other though. Sherwyn has a more flashy style and we really feed off of each other. He would use tones and sounds that I would never use and that really works for us. The sound that comes from our difference is the sound of Two Fresh.
BPM: How do you keep things fresh when making music? How do you keep it different?
Kendrick: A lot of that comes from having new toys and working in the studio. The more you tinker with your old toys and the more new ones you get, the more you can change up your sound and discover new ones. Also starting tracks from scratch, which we are doing a lot now, really helps you get new and different sounds. As far as samples go, you just stumble upon new ones randomly and you can get an idea from that and have new sounds spawn from that.
BPM: Is there anyone factor that you can attribute to your success?
Kendrick: Definitely 1320 records and STS9. They signed us to our first record and put out a lot of hype work and really backed us up. Elm & Oak has also played a part, and it’s really cool to come out to Colorado and actually see what the Elm & Oak crew is doing and how they work.
BPM: What can the fans expect for things to come from Two Fresh?
Kendrick: Expect a lot of new music from us. We’ve been working on writing lyrics and we’ve been having our friends do some lyrics and we’re going to put more rapping into our music. We’ve done tracks with MC’s before that we haven’t released and we’re going to put out a lot of that and a lot of our own stuff soon, so get ready for that.
BPM: What can we expect from your show on Friday?
Kendrick: It’s definitely going to get rowdy. Expect an eclectic show and get ready to throw down.
Oct.11th- Dec. 17th we’re hitting the road supporting Skrillex alongside with 12th Planet and Nadastrom.
SKRILLEX ANNOUNCES EPIC HEADLINING “MOTHERSHIP TOUR” SPANNING 3 MONTHS
DUBSTEP/ELECTROHOUSE WUNDERKIND PLAYING LARGEST VENUES OF HIS CAREER
Electronic music producer Skrillex has announced yet another string of North American tour dates, meeting the mounting demand for his live experience head-on by playing venues with capacities in excess of 4000 people. This early-fall jaunt sees the young EDM producer sharing the bill with fellow native Los Angelino 12th Planet, live-production outfit Two Fresh as well as DC Moombahton practitioners Nadastrom. The Mothership Tour will showcase the first ever North American performances by UK rap/grime troupe Foreign Beggars as well. Highlights set to include two massive nights at Chicago’s Congress Theater with Dada Life and other guests as well as a Halloween gathering in Bloomfield, Colorado with an expected turnout of 7,000 fans where the entire posse will be joined by Skream & Benga and Nero (live).
Additionally, many cities will be privy to an official after-party featuring guests Dillon Francis, J. Rabbit, Steve Duda, Alvin Risk, and numerous surprise guests. In typical fashion, Skrillex will be armed to the teeth with bass, carrying an impressive sound-system powered by 50,000W of PK Sound on the tour. With such a dense schedule, it’s impressive to think that these are just a fraction of Skrillex’s 300+ performances slated for the next 12 months, including dates in Europe throughout November and December.
“This is going to be an incredible tour, I wanted a diverse lineup and I wanted to showcase great music, great people, and great times!” – SKRILLEX
