AVALON NOTORIOUS QUESTIONS : James Egbert
The up and coming James Egbert was able to spare some time for an interview! This is how it went down:
Avalon Hollywood: Attn! We are now interviewing @thejamesegbert! He is performing Friday at Avalon! How are you doing today??
James Egbert: I’m doing great! Just got into LA last night and now I’m enjoying a day in the studio working on some new music!
Avalon Hollywood: awesome! great to hear! Let’s get started! If you could open or perform with any artist (dead/alive) who would it be, why?
James Egbert: I think someone like Bach or Mozart would be really incredible. Their attention to detail is amazing and the music is epic!
Avalon Hollywood: agreed. Truly great composers. What has been your biggest track of the year?
James Egbert: I’ve been really blown away by the response to Legion, but I think my favorite may still be Milky Way Wars!
Avalon Hollywood: damn good song! What’s your guiltiest after-gig meal?
James Egbert: I went nuts at Del Taco after a show with Avicii in CO, but I hear that Cactus in Hollywood will set a new standard
Avalon Hollywood: Mexican food out here will set the bar high! If you weren’t a DJ, what other career would you be doing?
James Egbert: gotta love post-gig Mexican food! I’d probably still be producing music for other artists.
Avalon Hollywood: always good to hear! How did you get into electronic music?
James Egbert: it was probably mostly the Matrix soundtrack. I was intrigued by the sound design in the movie, and the music was the same!
Avalon Hollywood: classic movie! What’s your best drunken story?
James Egbert: I once ran a 10k at 7am the morning after playing a show and partying till 3 or 4 in the morning lol
Avalon Hollywood: that doesn’t sound like a fun story! At least you made it! ha! Why did you move from Orange County to Denver to record?
James Egbert: CU @ Denver has a good recording program from what I’ve heard but I dropped out. Real reason = girl/best friend/now wife
Avalon Hollywood: aw so sweet! well that’s all the time we have for today, can’t wait to hear you tomorrow! Can you leave us with 3 words to describe your set tomorrow?
James Egbert: my set tomorrow is gonna be bangin, theatrical, and most of all – BONKERS! See you then!
Avalon Hollywood: @thejamesegbert awesome! Thank you for your time! See you tomorrow night at #Control!
