One On One With ETC!ETC!
 
ETC!ETC! joined us before his set at Electric Zoo to discuss his productions and life as a part of the Dim Mak family. We cover his work with Bro Safari, Bear Grillz, and Corporate Slackrs as well as remixing Henry Fong. We also discussed his experiences going to Dim Mak parties as a fan to now DJing at Dim Mak events.
 
What is it like working with Bro Safari?
Working with Nick is really good, we have good chemistry and it's really easy to work together. Whenever I'm stuck on something I'll send it to him and it bounces back. We had “Suspects” which worked out really well. We had “The Clap,” and that worked out amazingly. Most of what we do together is moombahton. We have two other tracks coming on his EP I think and I’m stoked for them - also moombahton.
 
 
How'd the #MOOMBAHSEASON mix (tracklist) and name come about?
I was just talking to Nick like, “Yo man this Yeezy season is taking off, we should do, like, moombahseason. We should do a mix.” So we did a mix with our favorite songs, mashups, new or old, just a special mix. It was both of us really. Initially the mix was just something for us to put out on our end, but it worked out great that we could debut it on the Major Lazer Beats 1 show.
 
Let’s jump into your “Drop It Low” remix for Henry Fong.
Yes, let’s! Well initially Henry and Dim Mak hit me up saying they wanted me to do a remix. I had already been playing the original too. My thing when I do a remix is that I want to do a moombahton version usually, but already the song was dancehall-y, so I was like, “What do I do?” I ended up using the main lead which is the horns [sings the horns] which reminds me of Major Lazer sounds and I was able to work it. I was kind of thinking “Trap On Acid,” [hums the synth] so I was able to bring a similar synth in. Nick was like, “Yeah this is like the new ‘Trap On Acid.’”
 
 
How did you come to work with Bear Grillz?
I was on tour with him and Datsik. He's a crazy dude. Once we got back from the tour we did “Drop It Low Girl,” which initially was supposed to be a tune on my EP because I had done the vocals, but he wanted it so we put it on his. So we did “Rozay” for my EP.
 
What was the inspiration for “Rozay”?
I had done this trap-like intro and then he started working on a drop melody. Then we got together and worked on everything. I knew we needed a vocal hook so I got one of my friends to do a filler and ended up pitching it low to the point where it sounded almost like Biggie or Rick Ross which is why we called it “Rozay.”
 
 
What can you say about your new song with Corporate Slackrs?
Shaggy, Adventure Club’s tour manager, had been hitting me up for the past few months to work with one of his artists. We needed a vocalist for the track and he said he would reach out to his connects. He came back to us and was like, “Yo I got Petey Pablo.” I was like “No way, for real dude?! Petey Pablo?!” We ended up working it out and it sounded good. I thought for a while that it may not work, but it did and it’s become one of my favorite tunes in a long time. I’m very stoked to play it out. I just started playing it because it just got finished. It goes off!
 
 
Any other music upcoming?
I think I'll put out a couple of bootlegs, a few songs on the Bro Safari EP, and then I’ve got a bunch of songs I need to put the final touches on, maybe like ten songs that I need to finish.
 
What’s it been like playing shows as part of the Dim Mak 20th Anniversary celebration?
So crazy. I did Miami and that was insane and super dope. It was hot. And right by the beach. When I first started going to Miami Music Week as a fan, I would go to the parties where the DJs would be right by the beachfront and it was surreal to get the chance to do it.
 
Being from LA, that’s where Dim Mak is from and I used to go the parties every week. Dim Mak would do the parties and it would be artists like Steve, MSTRKRFT,  and DJ AM. I would go there as a fan. Just being there was fun and then now, being able to play it, is just surreal. Super dope.
 
Was there anything that made you feel like it was a Dim Mak party?
It was a home vibe. When you went to a Dim Mak party, you knew everyone there, like literally you knew everyone there. You’d walk in and say what’s up to everyone and it was like a family. That’s the best thing that Dim Mak has had, has kept, and always will have - it’s a family. They put out great music, take care of one another, and support each other.
