[INTERVIEW] PhaseOne

[INTERVIEW] PhaseOne

August 14, 2019 2 By Kailee Schamberger


My favorite, um, memory is definitely Lost Lands ’cause it’s like everyone that I’ve ever met in the music industry or even my while, like, career, in one place, at one time and it’s like total fam, and it’s beautiful. So, me and Sullivan King have a song that we’re working on. I’m not sure when it’s coming out, but we’ve started it. Um, EPs? I’m working on something bigger than that right now so stay tuned. Serum is the way to go because we don’t live in 2012 anymore, so if you wanna be up to date with anything that’s happening, Serum is definitely the way to go. I invented my name because I was producing some songs and I didn’t have a name. So, it was like: Okay, I need to think of a name for this project and I was looking through my audio notes, and I was like: Oh, maybe I should, uh, name this something to do with audio. So, it was like “Phase”, like the phase in and out of audio. And then, I just added “One” of the end. It’s kind of a boring story, but that’s the truth. I do all my own production, mixing and mastering. Nobody else touches it. I hate it when other people touch my stuff. I’m never happy with the result. I’ve tried it a few times years ago and it sucked. So I always do everything myself. Why bass music? Because, um, the energy is great, the people are great, um, I used to play in metal bands and it was, like, loud, agressive music. This is like the electronic music equivalent. So, I don’t know, I love it. People that inspire me, I don’t know, like, all my friends, you know, like, the Disciple crew, um, my friends Virtual Riot and Barely Alive, they’re my really good friends and they inspire me a lot, um, I don’t know, like, I started listening to Dubstep when Skrillex came around, so that’s the big inspiration back in the day. Um, I don’t know, that’s about it. So, uh, for the people that don’t know, I used to play in metal bands for many, many years before I started doing Dubstep. I played guitar in, like, six different bands. A lot of the sounds that you hear in my songs, like guitar, are riffs that I’ve recorded a long time ago, but they still work, so I can sample them and use them in my songs, which is cool. I’m biased ’cause I… I’m from Australia, so I love, like, the Australian metal scene, guys like Northlane, Ed Hartwig, Parkway Drive, you know, they’re the boys, ma’am.
