061 - Aaron Spectre / Drumcorps Interview with Christina Rowatt
The Void 333 With Christina
Aaron Spectre / Drumcorps is an American musician who creates electronic music across the emotional, sonic and instrumental spectrum, from dancefloor-slaying ragga jungle and breakcore to finely crafted grind/industrial/vocal music that he performs with guitar, synths and records everywhere from raves to grindcore festivals. Aaron's work transcends genres and could be described as what aliens would assemble from relics found after the dark side of the musical apocalypse. His most recent full-length Drumcorps release, "Falling Forward" is a masterful slab of songs that I liken to a rowdy pirate ship in the spirit of a cathedral like Nine Inch Nail's "The Fragile" which features a guest appearance from legendary drummer Iggor Cavalera. In this expansive podcast episode, host Christina Rowatt and Aaron Spectre discuss his history, music around the world (born and raised in the Massachusetts hardcore scene, he has also lived in Berlin, Switzerland, New York and is currently based in Amsterdam), art, evolution and the usual rambling adventures through the creative process. Enter the Void. The Void is also Christina's YouTube channel. Watch here: youtube.com/thevoidwithchristina
Berlin resident Aaron Spectre mashes up the place. Fact. Propelled along by a junglistic undercurrent, his sets have become something of legend, drawing on grime, hip hop, dubstep, ragga, punk, thrash metal and ear-pummelling breakcore. If this floats your boat, we recommend you check his excellent productions on Death$ucker and Omeko.This set was recorded at the Mega Bass Robo Orgy in London, June 2005.^ Download flyer artwork for Mega Bass Robo Orgy
