Jesse Wheaton: Lets start off with an easy question: who are your favorite artists at LIB that you're excited to see over the next few days?
PA: The festival crowd that LIB brings together, most of them artists. It brings together a lot of artists. So playing for people who are making a living off of art, or who are art hobbyists, there’s something about that that makes me feel more connected to them because that’s what I’m doing as well.
“Having a festival that’s specifically curated for that is super inspiring for me.”
Jesse: You mean visual artists as well as musical?
Jesse: You've rocked the same jumpsuit for many years, are there any embellishments that will come in the future to the jumpsuit?
Jesse: Oh! You're going to switch it out?
Jesse: I noticed you had Talib Kweli, Too $hort, and a lot of Oakland stuff in your set. What artists did you listen to growing up?
“That pop that was very rich with layers and melody from the 80’s… that touched my heart, bro.”
Jesse: How does a song start for you? What is the seed that starts a song for you?
Jesse: What's your biggest challenge with mixing Hip Hop and Electronic Music?
Jesse: So taking Talib Kweli's voice and mixing your songs with the beats that Black Star has, for example, that was so cool…
Jesse: You play a lot of your stuff for free. Why do you do that?
Jesse: Are you going to Burning Man this year?
Jesse: Aside from music, what's the most interesting adventure you've been on lately?
It was a pretty awesome answer. In a very Polish Ambassador style.
