Will had a spiritual awakening in the late 90’s deep in the Kirishima Mountains in South Japan. SACHI was the name his Jujutsu-i gave to him, so we just ran with that.
Having Diplo play our songs out on his radio show was crazy. We’ve been to LA a couple times for writing trips, and LA is always a trip. We played this show in Wellington called Homegrown, which was ridiculous. The vibe was so good. It was in this tent, which was like two thousand people over capacity. There were like five thousand people in this three thousand person tent, all dancing with their friends and singing the words.
A UE Boom for the hotel, eye masks, heaps of H2O and a sleep tea before bed.
Something else creative, film or fashion or art or something. Advertising.
Write, write, write. Make music that you like. If you are a good person, people will want to help you.
A lot of rock music. Both of our dads love rock, like Pink Floyd, Led Zepplin and U2. When we were playing in bands, we use to listen to a lot of Green Day, All Time Low, shit like that. Then when the early Flume and Chet Faker stuff started to pop, we found that and kind of started playing with production. I think in terms of influence, we just admire the quality of the music and the projects that artists we love put out, and that inspires us to achieve that level of creativity and artistry.
Spider Man, he’s the raddest superhero out. Will wants to be Iron Man because he can do it all.
The line-up for TGIG is so fire. We’re real excited to perform. A lot of our friends and people we have collaborated with are on the line-up, so we have a few goodies for you guys. We’ve never been to North Queensland, so super excited to make it up!
The 70s, in New York, with Andy Warhol, or Ancient Greece with Plato.
THIS ONE! it's a classic :D
