FAINT ONE drops us a line with an exclusive, his latest 15 minute, multi-camera-angle, video promo mix. We had a quick chat with this fresh, incredibly skilled turntablist prodigy about the mix, his year, and what’s up next. You can’t fake skills. Or his resume in the last year. De video dun lie. You may have to pause the Soundpond live-stream above before viewing this, or get clashing sound.
Flying Saucers : Name with meaning or another blazetacular creation?
The name actually comes from ‘The Flying Saucer” , which was a novelty record release by Buchanan & Goodman in 1956. It’s considered to be one of the first mashup songs made.
Is there a launch party for the tape…how’s it being released?
The tape is being released through Nostalgia Entertainment records on the 8th of April, there will be plenty of hard copies available, and we’re going to throw a party at Rocket on the 13th of April to celebrate the release.
You seem to pump out promo content on the regular, but this is the first video we’ve seen on your channel for a while. The multi-angle video idea for a megamix is pretty fresh and it’s been done well. Who produced it?
It was actually Trumps from Grifters Inc who filmed and edited it. I’m super stoked with the job he did.
We’re seeing your name fucking everywhere. What were some highlights of 2012 and what’s coming up next? Where can we see you playing?
I supported a lot of crazy artist in 2012, Cut Chemist, Hermitude, Evidence and Atmosphere and Pharcyde just to name a few, but the highlight for 2012 for me had to be opening for Roots Manuva at The Prince Bandroom in Melbourne, I’ve never played to a crowd that big before. As for 2013, you guys will just have to wait and see.
Any other crew or clips we should be checking out right now?
Nostalgia Entertainment are working on a few promo drops at the moment, so keep an eye out for them.
