The City Rises #138 w/ Photek

This week we were pleased to have an interview with the veteran producer, Photek, talking about d’n’b and dubstep, techno and house, LA, the music industry, button-pusher Deadmau5, DJ Paris Hilton, Skrillex and more. A producer of some of the finest moments in the history of ‘bass-music’ over the past decade-and-a-half, his thoughtful perspective on things was refreshing and genuine. A true legend. He’s coming to Melbourne as part of the Sound Lounge gigs at Hamer Hall on September 1st with Nitin Sawhney and A13 & Affiks. Check it out.

The interview is included in the podcast of the show but I’ve also made it listenable on it’s own and you can download it here.
