[divider]Classics Only Tour & What’s Next[/divider]
The Classics Only tour has them traveling all over North America to play some really extended sets – going as long as seven hours (in Chicago @ The Mid). You can catch them in Seattle on July 11th playing open to close for five hours. The motivation behind the long sets came from good memories when they had the chance to “control the room for the whole night.” Inspired by Max Graham doing the same, and tired of opening DJs playing Levels, the two are excited to play their library of classic music to new and old fans alike. Why not play the music that made them who they are today?
The revival doesn’t end behind the decks either. Josh says he’s in the process of “…making the studio less complicated – more analog, more random, more chaotic and simpler.” Getting back to their roots, the duo hopes, will let them relearn this “musical language” they developed 14 years ago. That language was full of nuance, warmth, and most importantly, feeling in the most core sense of the word. Josh is clearly excited to make music again and to take their listeners on “a better journey.” For a preview of what’s in store, check out New Ground and Rise Up, both of which were created with a modular synthesizer – a beautiful machine with endless possibilities for unique sound.
I couldn’t let Josh and Dave escape without asking them what they thought of the Pacific Northwest. With a clear love of whiskey, food, and the great outdoors, we had to know if they had considered living in the Pacific Northwest. Both had high praise for our beloved land but Josh said something that we think rings true for everyone “What keeps me wherever I’m at are the people that are still there. Wherever I am, it’s about the people.” We couldn’t agree more.
