Check it out. Designer Drugs
hits Texas this week, starting the trip with Dallas! Designer Drugs will be joing us this Thursday the 16th at The Loft
. Michael Patrick was kind enough to take time out of his busy work (party) day and answer a few questions and drop some knowledge on us. Be sure and grab the newest Designer Drugs remix below and if you don't already have the Mariah Carey joint, that one is a few posts down. FIRE! Thursday is bound to be nuts!Tell the people who you are and what you do.
My name is Michael Patrick and I get paid to party (as long as I play music while I party) and I produce music with Theodore Nelson (Greek Translation: Gift of the Gods) who is currently studying hard in college, hence why I do most of the parting(DJing) on my own.How did Designer Drugs form? Are you both from Philly?
We both met in High School and grew up outside of Philly where we went clubbing as teenagers.Do both of you produce and DJ, or do each of you have your own area of expertise?
We both write the tracks. Sometimes it's one or the other writing and sometimes we work together. It's pretty much a 50/50 split. I write all the good tracks though. Theo's write the tracks with the banjos and kazoo solos.I have been seeing quite a few (quality) remixes pop up on the blog circuit over the last month. Are you currently working on a remix album? What projects do you have in the works right now?
Oh geez, Umm, We are trying to work on more original material but the demand for remixes are high at the moment and since we are slaves to the economy we have no choice but to make billions of dollars doing remixes. We are releasing our first single on Iheartcomix, October 28th and we're pretty confident it's going platinum or double platinum on the first day. We are really hoping it will bring the stock market back up a couple hundred points. They haven't mentioned it in the WSJ yet but they did mention us in New York Magazine
Plus we have a ton of other remixes and apparel going on that you can peep on our Myspace
.I heard that you are fond of Texas. Tell us a bit about that one.
Oh man, too fond. I love rodeo, cacti, tacos, caliente chiquitas, tacos and caliente chiquitas.How about giving us 5 tracks you are feeling right now. Old, current, whatever.
How about 5 artists? Foamo, Herve, Sinden, Nadastrom, Crookers/Beetroots (tie)Any shout outs, smack talk, hidden talents or secrets you would like to share?
