[FAR TOO LOUD] ACID 9000 (DEFORMATY REMIX)
Far Too Loud’s “Acid 9000″ remix competition hosted by Beatport.com has been a very popular contest for budding and veteran musicians alike, likely due to the original’s authentic, nostalgic, and gritty vibes. Its heavily modulated vocal is just superbly executed. It would only seem natural that Deformaty would enter, however, his breaks remix seems a tad unfair. As per usual he nailed it. The funky, grooving movement of his rendition builds into fast and powerful punch of a drop. But he doesn’t stop there. He builds again and drops into a dance floor erupting glitch hop growler, and as soon as you catch your breath he builds back up and finishes you off with a sweet breaks funk sundae. A tough tune to beat, but there are some impressive submissions so far. Poor judges.
Voting begins March 11th and ends March 23rd. The track will become available when the contest has ended. Good luck to all of the contestants!

Stealing the show hidden within the synth driven breakdowns is “Rebel Scum”, a grinding Complextro like peaktime crowd pleaser that if only broken up a little more would rival older tear out Breaks tracks in destructive ability! Deformaty makes use of almost every sound imaginable in this electronic world, overloading our senses and moving our body’s with festival like melodies and hard dance floor action!

“Arriving via Portland, Oregon; Bouncin’ is the label debut from both Deformaty and Koyote. An ode to the all powerful Melbourne sound, it’s a unique perspective from these west coast producers. High energy vibes and a deathly synth lead are usually a combination for success. While winter winds begin here in New York, down under it’s heating up. Melodic builds juxtapose the grinding drop that induces hands-in-the-air approval without having to even touch a mic. Complementing this insanity, the tempo gets cut in half before a second blast for an impromptu half-time drum onslaught. Premiered by Tommie at EDC Orlando this weekend, he reports that it had the best crowd reaction of his set; enough said. Support from: MAKJ, Tommie Sunshine and more” - Brooklyn Fire Records

DEFORMATY’S LATEST INTERVIEW WITH INSOMNIAC
After Deformaty’s explosive set at Beyond Wonderland this year, Insomniac sat down with him for an in depth interview to get an inside view of this prolific artist. This is the interview:
Was there one particular moment in the recording or mixing process for your Discovery Project entry that made you feel like you were creating something pretty damn special? I think at some point I realized that this remix was kicking some serious ass, but not really more so than some others I was doing at the time. I was really just doing it for fun, but the original vocals had so much power, the rest of the track just came together naturally.
Are there any dots to connect with where/how you grew up to your musical output? I would say so. I started going to EDM shows at an early age, but before even then, I always loved music; I always wanted to be a musician. Any support and influence I received along the way, and the sacrifices and suffering that comes with mastering any craft, certainly shaped the kind of musician I am today.
What do your parents think of what you are doing? My parents are super supportive. My mother and father both really enjoy my music. I think it would be a curious sight to see an older woman driving down the road bumping some tear-out breaks, but my mom does, and it’s awesome.
Anything about being a DJ and producer that makes you shake your head in wonderment? I think the thing that gets me the most is how a lot of other musicians in this field treat the music and the community. Many are in it for the wrong reasons. The craft of DJing, itself, has undergone a transformation. From vinyl to CD to controller…but the digital vs. analog debate isn’t something I really want to dive into at the moment.
What’s the biggest misconception about being a DJ? Many people have the idea that being a DJ is hyper glamorous, or that we live this drug fueled, sexually charged, alcohol drowned lifestyle, free of worry or responsibility. I can’t speak for everyone, but for me personally, DJing is hard work, not to mention producing. That’s a whole other world of stress, yet also equally rewarding, as is DJing. I’m not rich from being a musician, at least, not monetarily.
How does what you do for a living affect you on a day-today basis? My friends are definitely all involved in the scene. I have been doing this for 15 years now, so my life has been fully encompassed by EDM and its community. I have literally been engrained by it, and it by me, as I have definitely left a mark—be it a skid mark or whatever, it’s there.
What is your ultimate career dream? My dream career other than being a musician, of course, (which I am doing currently) is and has always been to be a scientist. I am currently going to school for marine biology.
Are you impulsive with your work or do you have a sketch in mind before you start? I definitely know what I want a song to sound like when I begin the process, but the path I take to get there is up to chance, and the result is often not what I had planned, but I am usually satisfied regardless.
How, if at all, does listening to music figure into your creative process? Damn, to be honest, inspiration comes to me from everywhere. No one artist or song really gets me in the mood to write, but it’s usually more of a collage of creative input that I collect prior to my scheduled studio days that ends up on in the track. I do hear a lot of crazy cool ideas that sometimes make their way into my music, but in general, it all comes from my experiences and emotions at the time.
What’s the most important piece of gear in your studio? Tough question…I would say the computer is the obvious answer, but all of my gear works together to get the job done. The PC, monitors and keyboard are all pretty important.
How important is it for you to experiment and take on the risk of failure? Very. The best music comes from chance and accidents. To fail is to rise and try again.
Do you have a list of people you’d like to collaborate with in the future? I would love to work with Access Denied, or Kill The Noise, but you know… I really just enjoy working with anyone who is skilled and creative enough to write dope tunes.
If we pressed Shuffle on your iPod while you went to the bathroom, what would you be embarrassed to come back to us listening to? Hell if I know. I only listen to awesomeness.
What sound or noise do you love? I love nasty saws and neuro bass right now, but I always dig a thick synth or pad. Yum.
What should everyone just shut the fuck up about? Trap. Seriously, screw trap in the mouth.
What gets you excited when you think about the future of electronic music and club culture? I get excited about where music is headed in general. I don’t think people could even fathom what our music today would have been from, say, 20 years ago.
When you look at electronic music and the surrounding culture, what worries you about the future, what do you wish would change or that you could change? I just wish the culture would drop this douche heavy bro-ness that it’s taken on. There are a lot more assholes in the club these days, it seems.
What are your weaknesses? My weaknesses are food and love.
Do you have a secret passion? Yup.
How would you describe your sound to a deaf person? I have some deaf fans and they describe it in intriguing ways, like feeling shapes. I can’t even imagine what it’s like.
Is success physical or internal? Depends on what the success is, but I would say, in most cases, it takes both. To be successful, in my opinion, is to be happy with what you’re doing.
What do you remember about your first DJ gig? I remember I was scared to death. I was so nervous I could hardly even place the needle on the record. I remember it was this dope outdoor festival and I felt really pressured to perform well, so when I actually got on stage, I think I remember thinking I might actually die from stage fright, but I did play, and it was a good set, and in time that fear was eliminated.
What’s the hardest professional lesson you’ve learned thus far? The hardest lesson is definitely to never ever give up on your dream. Not ever.
Tell me about your most memorable night out as an artist or as a fan. I can’t. There are too many. Playing Beyond Wonderland was pretty incredible though. I will never forget that.
What advice would you offer someone thinking about entering the Discovery Project competition? Believe in your music. Believe in yourself.
