Interview with SHARKSLAYER

hello paul

1. The first and main question: "How are you?" This is a favorite question of all in Russia at the meeting. )
Tell us about yourself. All that you want. Unlimited)



SHARKSLAYER is actually 2 guys, Sir Nenis & DJ Pushups, who also
produce & dj for the TOP BILLIN collective (www.topbillinmusic.com).
We started the Sharkslayer project because we wanted to incorporate
the dubbed out bass-heavy sounds with modern-day tech house (and blend
some caribian vibes in naturally).... And it's been all good. Some
fresh air to the club sounds... We've been both djing & producing for
several years and we do all styles, from house to dubstep, from rave
to reagge. And we don't hunt actual sharks, only the business sharks
that usually ruin every good thing in music.

2. How could you describe your music? What color or smell?


Sometimes pretty dark & grimey but also uplifting and jackin. We try
to infuse so many things we hear daily like "oh, check that uk funky
beat, definitely need to use something similar in the next track", and
we love so many different music styles, so it would be stupid to limit
ourselves to only 1 thing. But what we need is bass, we all need, we
live off it. While listening to a Lee Scratch Perry album, we think
how dope he was, then we pick up a DJ Sneak record and think how dope
HE was and it all comes together in a beautiful way.

3. Question which interest to everyone: Tell about what we need to wait. Something about yours future releases.


We've been working on our new 'Swamp Dubs' EP that will bring some
good classic southern soul & tech house vibes together, that's will
drop in early 2010. On the remix front there's a remix out now for
Little Jinder (Trouble&Bass) and for our
Scandinavian-friends-cum-Los-Angeles-band Steed Lord. Remixes for Dim
Mak & Southern Fried records will drop next month, as well as a riddim
remix for Jamtech & Sizzla (!). All these have got a lot of bass,
guaranteed.

4. What do you think about blogs? How do you react if you accidentally find a blog, which posted your songs?


We don't get mad, blogs are just one way of promotion, we prefer
people to have our songs instead of us holding on to the mp3... I
mean, sharing to some extent is all good, but it's not a good look to
share entire discographies etc. I think that if you're a blogger, pls
take the moment to include the link where to buy the rest of the
artist's tracks, like a Beatport link. You know, the buddhist middle
way works in this too...

5. Tell us what you think about the current condition of electronic music? I read a lot of criticism over what is now happening with style.


Ah, it all goes in cycles. At one point style X is popular, and styles
Y & Z aren't. Then people start to get bored of style X and want to
hear more style Y in club music, after that fades, then style Z takes
over.... and the cycle keeps on repeating itself. People seem so
easily bored nowadays, always wanting something 'different'. But for
the current state of electronic music, it's more alive than it has
ever been, more talented producers, more djs, better clubs! It's easy
to think that things we're better back in the day but they weren't,
it's an illusion that you create in your mind when there's changes in
the world (and humans instictively avoid change).

6. who of some bands / artists / producers, in your opinion, is most interesting now?
And who will blast scene on 2010?



Personally we've been really interested in the new dubstep & funky
producers. The dutch-styled house guys we're big this year, and I
suspect them to make it even bigger (Afrojack making tracks for
Pitbull and so on). You know Giant from St. Petersburg? They will make
it big in 2010! They got releases on dubstep labels like Dub Police
and now we've heard some of their house stuff, and it's awesome,
they're definitely on the top of the list for us.

7. Whose music has influenced your creativity? What you liked to listen in childhood? Please write a few your favorite artists and albums.


Do you know a song 'Remember To Remember' by Rick Holmes? This song
has all the names of the artists we listened when growing up... Look
it up in Youtube and enjoy 9 minutes of soul bliss and learn names
that made it important.

8. Do you know something about Russian culture? Maybe your listened about russian music?


Sure, we love Russia, always a pleasure to visit! Moscow and St Peter
and of course favorite cities because we've never been anywhere else.
Food is great, Seljanka, Pelmeni and vodka for hours. For Russian
music, can't really tell from older artists, because lot of stuff
didn't penetrate to west back in the day, but for modern artists we
like Proxy of course and Giant that we already mentioned. Defintely
want to find more, because we think that soon there's a lot of great
producers coming from Russia.

9. Do you have a plan to visit Russia? Your Russian fans very love you and waiting.


Right now we don't have a booking for Russia, but ask your local
promoter to email sharxlayer@gmail.com and request a gig.

10. Please, write some words for your Russian Fans.
