NN: What have you been up to ?
Culttastic: I’ve been DJing and performing live at DJ Phantasy Club and Blvckout at the Flat in Williamsburg with really cool artists like Machine Girl and Food Stamps and Negative Gemini and No Eyes. I’ve been spending time at Vector gallery with the Oracle and the Crown Prince of Hell.I’m producing and recording new dance music that’s minimal, energetic and nu-kawaii. I’ve also recently started collecting swag ass domain names by stumbling drunkenly with my credit card to friends’ computers in the middle of the night. I am the proud owner of www.yoloswag666.com and www.sellmysoulnow.com.
NN: You have such a wonderful voice. Where did you learn to sing?
CULTTASTIC: I’ve been playing the piano and studying music theory since I was 8 years old. I also studied at Banbury School of Voice with Kent Banbury and later at Berklee College of Music.
NN: Is this, the first project you have ever used your vocals the way you do here ?
CULTTASTIC: I started experimenting with this vocal sound in 2006 when Steven Clark and I created a project called Pseudonecrophile inspired by Fischerspooner and Uffie and Gravy Train and Peaches.
NN: How long have you been making electronic music?
CULTTASTIC: I’ve been producing electronic music for almost 10 years. You can classify my music as #Icepop!
NN: Your style is very “cool.” Where are you pulling that energy from?
CULTTASTIC: Literally! icepop is also the aesthetic. I’ve curated these pages about it:
NN: What can we expect to be seeing from you in the future?
