In a recent back and forth interview, Benoit.bass tells us about his bass music journey.
When did you start DJing/producing – and what or who were your early passions and influences?
I’ve been around and in music all of my life. I used to play the piano as a kid and guitar in my teenage years. I listened to a lot of hip hop, metal, 80’s rock, and just about anything that had a really good beat/sound to it.
How did you get into DJing/ musical background?
I started DJing around 5 years ago and made the decision to produce around 2 years ago. My main influence when I started listening to electronic music was Deadmau5. I heard one of my friends playing him at a party and instantly got hooked to that sound. I then started throwing my own parties in my hometown and began to DJ.
How would you describe your style?
I’d say my style is multi-genre bass music, if that’s even a thing. There are so many different sub genres of bass music that I couldn’t even tell you. I really enjoy the 2012 era of dub with Nero, Foreign Beggars, and Bassnectar. I tend to play sets that follow that area of bass music combined with the new styles like Zeke Beats, The Widdler, and G Jones. I enjoy playing both uptempo and downtempo so I really try and have a specific vibe for a set depending on the venue and setting of the event.
What exactly is the Benoit.Bass music project ?
The Benoit project is focused to deliver an experience that brings people into the present moment through different styles of bass music.
Where would you like to find yourself in ten years?
I’d like to see myself have around 15 collections of music released in the next 10 years. Collections meaning an ep or album. I don’t care how it’s released, just as long as it’s out there for people to listen to freely. I want to fully understand my capabilities in production and push over every creative boundary for myself as an artist in that timespan.
