Text Message Interview: Paces
Corn chips and the puppy life with $ultan Of $wag Paces.
Without blowing our own trumpet (a sentence that is the ultimate precursor to actual trumpet-blowing), I remember back in the early days of Pilerats.com when the blog looked very different and Pilerats was a very different looking collective and we first started chattering about one half of Surecut Kids - Mikey Perry - and his new beatsy side project, Paces. It was a killer little bootleg of the The xx's Angels, and the beginning of something special for one of the humblest, most funny dudes in Australian electronic music. He's been busting a nut ever since with a heap of dope originals and EPs, and the past couple of years of toiling have steadily been paying off. Fast forward to now and 2015 is off to a flyer, rocking in at #100 in the 2014 triple j Hottest 100 with his production work on Tkay Maidza's Switch Lanes, followed by latest single, Nothing's Forever, featuring another artist on the rise, WA's own Kučka.
He's announced his biggest headline tour to date to celebrate, so as part of the Smirnoff Sound Collective bringing punters and artists closer together, we thought we'd interview Paces through everyone's favourite medium and our favourite form - the text message. Check it out below, along with his tour dates after that and also this *just added* Alison Wonderland bootleg - very naize:
