RJ: What equipment do you use for your live sets?
MF: I’m on Paper Diamond’s “Cold Crush Tour” right now, and I’ll be jumping on tour with Big Gigantic after this. I’ve got a lot of tentative dates I can’t announce, but I’ll definitely be traveling a lot this year. Can’t wait for festy season, especially Summer Camp, Wakarusa, and Electric Forest!
RJ: Everyone has been talking about your collaboration with Michal Menert – anything new we can expect from you two? Any other collaborations in the works?
RJ: How did you get started making music? MF: I started playing piano when I was 5 and took lessons until I was 14. My dad got me my first keyboard when I was 13. I used that and quite a few different software programs (Rebirth, Fruity Loops, Reason, Logic, Pro Tools) to make random electronic beats. I wasn’t really into making any genre in particular, but halfway through high school I got into making hip-hop beats for my friends and me to rap on.
RJ: If you had to describe your music in 3 words, what would you say?
Fun Soulful Beats
MF: What is your greatest accomplishment to date?
Every new track I make feels like my greatest accomplishment. Expect more Manic Focus beats in the near future. Much Love 🙂
