Leading up to the inaugural Mountain Oasis Electronic Music Summit, we’re running a series of Q+A interviews with the festival’s artists.
MartyParty, half of DJ duo PANTyRAiD:
Mountain Xpress: If you could collaborate with any other Mountain Oasis artist, who would it be and why?
MartyParty: I’d love to get Nine Inch Nails into a studio and make a tune. But I bet everyone’s saying that because those basslines they wrote are epic! Damn.
If you had to play a set acoustically, how would you go about doing that? Lots of practice — acoustic sets are their own beast! I’d definitely have to bring a piano. Josh is better at guitar. I’d also take a swing at the bass guitar: I love playing basslines!
Since it’s almost Halloween, do you have a favorite spooky song? I’ve always been a fan of the Rocky Horror Picture Show soundtrack, especially that “Time Warp” tune. But on Halloween, any awesome classical orchestral drama does it for me!
PANTyRAiD performs Sunday, 7:15 p.m. at the ExploreAsheville.com Arena. More info here
