Why, we asked ourselves, have a quickie with just one DJ? Why not with two? After all with Maze & Masters in the house you just know the action is gonna be hot, hot. hot! So DSD caught up with the two Brighton girls who have kicking up a bass heavy storm in 2013 before their debut at DSD this Friday.
So what have you been up in the lead up to your debut on the decks at Brighton’s Ohso Social Bar? Had a good summer so far? We are full-on ready to peak the season at DSD as the weather finally arrives just in time! We’ve been captured by the White Isle already, played a gig at Es Vive and didn’t want to leave, represented Deelooded at As One In The Park and had a jaunt on the Soho streets for London Pride so have lots of summer vibes ready for Brighton beachfront action!
What festival / gig action are you up to this for the rest of the summer? We feel very honoured to have been asked to close the Wild Fruit Big Top with Dulcie Danger at Brighton & Hove Pride this year, it’s a dream come true, quaking already! After that we are going to party with the boys at the incredible Circuit Festival Barcelona, and are playing at the Girlie Circuit Main Party.
You recently did a remix for Boy George. How did that come about and what was it like for you? He overheard Fat Tony playing our SESA In My Life remix and got us on board for a few projects. It was so incredible working with the voice of such an icon, and he is really rocking it at the moment with some fantastic stuff coming up.
Any other forthcoming Maze & Master studio action on its way? Yes we have a remix forthcoming on Sony Records, of Youth by the hotly tipped band Foxes (who you might have heard singing on Rudimental’s album) with a sexy bass and a haunting vocal.
DSD has a special place in your heart because? It IS Brighton. Summer, friends, love, pure house music and party times. All of what we miss from our hometown in one night. We can’t wait.
What can we expect from your DSD set? Some naughty Vauxhall vibes fresh from the Beyond Chapel, blended with beautiful basslines, sunshine drenched vocals and a few Brighton anthems that are close to our hearts thrown in for good measure.
What the best thing and the worst thing about being in a DJ double act? Doing the thing we love most in the world, together. Think of how excited you get when you find a new tune, and double it, and double the feeling you get when you drop it for the first time. We just have the best time in the box and vibe together, both of us can have time to connect and see what the crowd wants and select the perfect tune for the moment.
The worst? When we have to play apart!
House music is a feeling. Discuss. We could discuss this for hours! It’s a cause, a religion, a reason, a most definitely a feeling, it’s what feelings sound like. It takes you up and wayyy down, whether you’re feeling happy or serious, like escaping or coming together with friends. It may well be the best invention ever.
We getting excited about a small celebration we call Brighton Pride coming up soon. Are you and what are your disco plans for the weekend? We’re going to be proud to the max, that set of our lives in the Wild Fruit tent, followed by playing at Coalition for Kitchen Pass where Jack comes to visit and the bass gets cranked up a level, then on to Life for a gig at the afterhours, plus a shimmy around the nights and with friends all over the city.
If you were onboard the international space station right now which song would you perform and beam back to earth? C-Mos 2 Million Ways. “This is the music of the Earth. The music of the sun and the stars, the music of yourself. The music is different here, the vibrations are different, not like planet Earth”.
Dirty or disco? Dirty! Bassface all the way…
Sunset or sunrise? Sunrise, because you are on the Beyond terrace and have a whole day of promise ahead of you.
