After many interviews I decided today to focus on Mike Gorman a.k.A Mike G, an american producer full of talent.
What got you into producing music?
I’ve always been into making music. Played guitar for a long time as a teenager along with drums, and trumpet. I started really getting into electronic music (mainly drum and bass/jungle) about 10 years and messed around with production but never got serious with it. Got really into DJing for a few years and realized it would only take me so far, so I decided to start producing music on a seriously level.
What’s your favorites tracks at the moment?
I really love anything Dubbel Dutch does so I’m absolutely in love with his new EP on Mixpak and basically all the new stuff Doctor Jeep is making. It’s kinda hard for me to pinpoint specific tracks, but other than those two, my favorite producers at the moment are definitely Neana, Drippin, Murlo, Strict Face, Poolboy92, False Witness, Supraman, and Jam City.
Do you like collaborating with others artists?
I do enjoy collaborating with other artists. It depends on the situation. Sometimes it’s hard to work over the internet. I definitely prefer to work in the same room, like how I did with Rashad. Makes it much easier. However I definitely am able to work with some people over the internet quite well. I just released a collab EP with Riot Earp on Freshmore under the name ‘Rite Clique’ Falcons was extremely easy to collab with. We work together very well. Same with SPF666. Watch out for a collab from us coming soon and hopefully a collab project with Supraman whenever we can make our schedules work.
What do you think of french music and producers?
I love a lot of the stuff coming out of France. I rate some French producers very highly. They definitely have this kinda uniquely refined and smooth sound about them that stands out. I obviously love anything French Fries and the Clek Clek boom camp comes out with. Some other great French producers I enjoy are Dehousy (who I did a remix for) Chillax, Goldhammer, Sam Tiba, and Canblaster. I actually released my latest EP on Soukouch Ethnik which is a French based label out of Orleans and also released a track on B.YRSLF Division out of France as well.
Have you ever collaborate with french producers? How was it?/Would you like to?
Yes actually I did a track with Martin Sauvage who runs Soukouch Ethnik. It was a lot of fun! I would definitely love to work with more French producers.
What’s the worst track you’ve ever heard?
Haha wow, good question. I’ve heard quite a few. A lot of that really agressive brostep and bro trap is really awful in my opinion. It’s like the Slipknot of electronic music in my opinion, but those guys definitley have production skills, just not something I enjoy listening to,
Have you been touring this summer?
Haven’t been doing much touring as of late. I played in Vancouver, BC, Canada early in the Summer. I play gigs here and there locally in Austin, Texas. I am playing a couple shows next week in Los Angeles though. One with Total Freedom at Mustache Mondays, which is great night and another one that I dont have too many details on as of yet. Should be fun! Hopefully I can tour more soon
What’s coming up for you?
Right now my main focus is working on my next release which will be a little different from the high energy club stuff most people know me for. This is a more grime influenced release but I’m tryin to put my spin on. Also working on a couple remixes for Thomas White from Montreal and Sugar Shane out of Philly. Also a couple more things I can’t really comment on right now other than possibly another collab EP as well as working on some beats for certain rapper who shall remain nameless at this time
