Al Jourgensen of print stars Ministry said of their forthcoming SoCal show, “Yes, it’s been almost two and a half years. Quite the journey since our little imposed quarantine lives that we’ve partaken in. I managed to get the equivalent of almost two, two and a half albums done just by being in enforced imprisonment through quarantine. Believe me, I’m not complaining, but I have a studio in my house so, OK, there’s nothing to do – let’s just be creative for a couple of years. It’s worked out well, but I’m really looking forward to getting back on the road, which I never thought I’d say, but here we are.”
“I knew when we were done with that, that OK, this is a good one,” Jourgensen said of the new album Moral Hygiene. “This is a keeper. After 15 or 17, there’s probably maybe four or five keepers. This is in the keeper category. It seems to be like, everything that’s talked about on that album is really coming to fruition more so than ever. Things like fascism coming to a head. They’re trying every legal trick in the book to impose authoritarianism on this country, with voting rights and all the stuff that we were singing about then is now coming to fruition.”
In “Not Another DJ,” Joseph Capriati said of his sound, “I play different types of sessions. If you really know me, you know you can expect one session or one another depending on the venue, on the party, on the crowd and generally the vibe. I don’t have a line to follow and I’m very versatile, for example if I play at Awakenings, you can expect a very techno focused set. If I play in the Terrace of Space Club in Miami, you can expect a groovy set, if I play in Ibiza, you can expect a House / Tech-House set. It really depends and I love to be able to follow the vibe and take my sound from there.”
