Print star Matt Sorum told us that, “I got involved in doing that kind of thing going on 15, 16 years ago. I started an L.A. band called Camp Freddy – that was me and Dave Navarro, and we used to invite a hit list of people. We had a pretty good run for 11 or 12 years. At one point I decided that I wanted to do my own version of this, because it was all over the place. We did all kinds of stuff and had a really good time, but it was time for me to move on. I started reaching out to friends of mine, saying hey, you guys want to go to South Africa? I called Slash and Duff, got Glenn Hughes and Robin Zander, Billy Gibbons, Steven Tyler, and all these guys said yes. I started putting together collectives of all these musicians.”
In “Not Another DJ,” Saka said that, “There are exciting things happening in pockets, as well as stale ideas being recycled in other pockets (pockets usually more gilded than the former). That being said, I’m super excited for the underground at the moment, esp. when it comes to bass music that doesn’t necessarily fit under the ‘brostep’ umbrella… drum & bass and 140 (dubstep w more UK tendencies) is on the rise and it’s really cool to watch unfold!”
