We continue with the homie Strange Love as we talk a bit more on how open the game is and he drops some wisdom, only the way Strange knows how. Read The Rest
Los Angeles has long been a haven for the more eclectic artists. And when it comes down to it, being eclectic and eccentric are about the only things you can say may tie them together. But at the end of the day, you will not find any one of them to be completely alike. Whether it be Earl Sweatshirt, Def Sound, or Blu, they all have their eccentricities in different ways. What’s common is the fearlessness in being themselves, flaws and all. And in comes Strange Love.
This interview here is comin deep out the archives.
A while back I interviewed Ron Trent through my homegirl/cameragirl Eve. Admittedly, I’m not the most versed on House music and the scene, even though I was familiar with his name. How deep his roots run in music though, was way deeper than one could really imagine.
During this time Ron had just come from the New Music Seminar. This was during the point where there was a clear shift in the music sales and how music was being purchased. Spotify hadn’t come out yet and YouTube wasn’t quite the place to listen to full albums. It was clear from Ron’s perspective that there were going to be some necessary changes inside and out in order for the music industry to really flourish. But that conversation will be in part 2….
I’ve made a point to ask musicians and DJs from Detroit how their city seems to produce so many exceptionally talented people? Maybe it’s a factor of most major cities. But when you talk about Detroit, the talent is seemingly unstoppable. J Dilla, Eminem, Danny Brown, Elzhi, Black Milk, and many more. It seems like the city produces hard working, competitive talent. But strangely enough the folks are talented humble, and seem to have little in the way of making them act “Hollywood”. It’s been interesting seeing the influx of Detroit folks in Los Angeles too.
In this part I ask Quelle on his insight on what makes Detroit such a center for extreme talent. I also ask him about his connection to Danny Brown, and about Guitar Solo )one of my favorite songs ever, which Quelle and Danny made).
