Basenji is certainly making a name for himself right now. A real music innovator he creates his own unique brand of pop tinged electronic music. His debut EP Trackpad on Future Classic was released this week and is currently sitting at the number 2 spot on the iTunes Australia Electronic Chart just below Disclosure. We had a chance to catch up with him whilst he is touring nationally as part of Listen Out Festival as well as doing a series of headline club shows.
Our boy Winston (The Joint) spoke to him about his approach to music both as a career and as an artistic endeavour. Other points of discussion were the importance of albums in electronic music, his upcoming tour across America, as well as the non-linearity of creativity (fancy).
Basenji plays Rocket Rooftop this Sunday (Oct 4th).
