Flosstradamus,原本是由 Curt Cameruci 和 Josh Young 组合的电子音乐双人组,被不少媒体、乐迷尊称为“Trap lord”。2016年底,组合宣布解散,由 Curt 继续以 Flosstradamus 的名号演出。去年年底 Flosstradamus 首次亚洲巡演后,不到半年便又回到中国巡演,看得出这位美国 DJ 挺喜欢中国的。

这次 Flosstradamus 在中国的巡演已经结束了,但我们相信,他很快会再回来,毕竟他表示,“还没上过长城呢!”此外,通过这次采访,我们认为他很可能会创造一个新身份来制作不同风格的音乐,敬请期待!

Now, Flosstradamus had already left China, but we’re confident he’ll be back soon, after all, he said, he hasn’t been to the Great Wall yet! In addition, through this interview, we think that he is likely to make up a new identity to create different styles of music.

你今年搬到了洛杉矶生活,对新家适应得怎么样?有没有不习惯的地方?

How have you adapted to your new home in LA this year? Are there any unaccustomed places?

我才刚搬去洛杉矶不久。我一直都有点犹豫,不过2月低时我最终决定还是离开纽约吧。3月1日,我站在洛杉矶街头,却还没有一间属于自己的屋子!我目前还没适应洛杉矶,而且在买到房子前我只能一直在 Airbnb 里寻找住所。

I just moved to LA in March officially. I’ve been kind of floating back and forth, but I finally moved out of New York at the end of February. March 1st, I got to LA and I still don’t have a house! I’m still not accustomed to LA yet. I’m in an Air BNB just kind of floating around hopefully until I buy a house.

洛杉矶、纽约和芝加哥三座城市中,哪座城市对你的音乐影响最大?

LA, NY and Chicago, which city has the biggest influence on your music?

芝加哥,当然是芝加哥。我年幼时在芝加哥学习音乐以及各种各样的事,这座城市给我的影响不仅仅只有音乐,而是多方面的。

Chicago. Chicago definitely does. I lived in Chicago when I was a younger kid learning about music and all sorts of stuff. It definitely affected me on so many levels, and not just my music.

据说你青少年时期受哥哥的影响听了很多类型的音乐,而且还在乐队里当过鼓手,那时你最常听的音乐类型是什么?

We heard that you were influenced by your brother during your teenage years and listened to many types of music, and also played drums in a band. What type of music did you listened to the most at that time?

没有某种特定的类型。我哥哥挺棒的,他可能今天在听嘻哈,而明天就在听摇滚了,他从没把自己限定在某种风格中。这也让我明白,其实我们没必要只听一种音乐,你可以去听各种各样的音乐,并在不同的风格中受到启发。

It wasn’t a certain genre. That was the cool thing about my brother. He was playing a rap song one day and a rock and roll song the other day. He never stuck to one thing, and I think that’s what showed me that you don’t have to listen to one thing and do a specific type of music. You can listen to all music and be influenced by all of them.

你曾表示想做些不同风格的音乐,但这有可能会让flosstradamus的乐迷不太适应,你有可能会创造一个新身份来发行不同风格的音乐吗?

You’ve said you want to do a different style of music, but it’s likely to make some flosstradamus’s fans less comfortable, have you ever considered creating a new identity to make music in different styles?

对,我确实想过。作为一个音乐人来说,创造一个新身份可以没有顾虑地去做任何尝试。无论是作为我自己 Cure,还是作为音乐人 Flosstradamus,以一个新身份来创作,确实可以抛开很多压力。

Yes I have considered that. I think it also takes off the pressure of anything you want to do as an artist. If you were to make up a new identity, all the pressure is taken off of you as a person. Me as Curt, me as Flosstradamus.

你自己第一次听到“Trap lord”这个称号是什么时候?你怎么看待这个称号?

When was the first time you heard of the title “Trap Lord”? What do you think of this title?

我不太记得第一次听到是什么时候了…你这是在称我为“Trap lord”吗?如果是的话,那我得说:“谢谢!”

I don’t know when the first time was…are you calling ME trap lord? If so, my answer is “Thank you!”

你计划今年每个月都发行一首新歌,巡演期间怎样保证这样的频率呢?

You planed to release a new song every month this year. How do you guarantee such frequency during the tour?

因为其实我已经做了足够多的音乐了,起码可以应付一个月发一首的频率。当然,如果超过这个频率,我就会有点吃不消了。

Because I’ve made enough music that I have enough runway ahead of me to put out the songs. At lest now I can put out once a month. If I start going faster, I don’t know if I can catch up.

这已经是你第二次来中国巡演了,而且两次之间相隔甚至不到半年,看得出你挺喜欢这儿,中国什么方面让你最难忘?

It’s the second time you’ve been on tour in China, and it’s been less than half a year since last time. I can see that you like here. What impresses you most in China?

人们对待音乐的看法都十分年轻和开放,至少对于我的音乐,trap,是这样的。这样美妙的氛围让我想起了5年前的美国。

Just how young and open minded everyone is about music. At least about my music, trap music. It seems to be very accepting and it feels like it was in the States 5 years ago.

在中国还有什么想做却还没能做的事吗?

Is there anything you want to do in China that you haven’t done yet?

我想去长城看看!我还没去过呢,期待着到北京!

I wanna see the Great Wall! That’s one thing I haven’t done. Next stop Beijing!
