MP3: Phaseone Remixes + Original Music

Posted By on Mon, Feb 16, 2009 at 2:22 PM

In this week's paper, Todd McKenzie interviews Andrew Jernigan, the musician known as Phaseone.

Todd McKenzie: Who are you, and how did you get started?
Phaseone: I've been making electronic music off and on for about eight years. It started off as just something to do for fun, and I started spending a lot of time on it about five years ago. I've done everything from jungle, hip-hop, house [to] I.D.M., but mostly hip-hop. Within the past year, I decided to make the switch from being just a hip-hop producer, chasing rappers around and trying to sell beats, to being more of an artist and putting my own name on the music. I want to be able to stand behind what I do and not depend on other people to make it sound right.

Do you have any plans to perform live?
Yes, for sure. I'm working on that right now. After I finish this album and a few more remixes, I'll put that together and hopefully find some places to play at. It will be like a DJ/performance hybrid.

In an ideal world, who else would you like to remix or collaborate with?
I've been approached by a few labels to remix some UK artists that I quite like, and I am looking forward to that.

Is there much crate-digging involved to find your inspiration? What are you looking for when you're listening to music?
I'm sampling a lot less than I used to, but yeah. I really just look for beautiful chords or melodies. I love bass, and beats, but good melody and harmony are what really do it for me.
