[Introducing] Interview with Liam Macleod

Liam is a fifteen year old upcoming DJ from Inverness. He came to me a while back to help him learn to produce beats and mix, and since then he's come on a lot! Infact he already has his first gig at Ironworks this week as part of the summer showcase and in true JNS style we'r hitting him up with a post and interview so you lot know about him.

If someone came to see you DJ, what should they expect to hear?
 A lot of electro and popular electro remixes and mashups. I try to play as many genre’s as possible but usually my sets revolve around electro and house

What was the first track that got you into electronic music?
The Metros – Talk About it (Mark Mackenzie remix)

What is your setup?
Reloop RMP-2 cdj’s, behringer ddm 4000 mixer, beats by dr dre studio headphones with my laptop and novation launchpad for samples.

What has been your impression of people in the music scene here? Have they been helpful?
The people up here have been very helpful especially mark Mackenzie and Jamie macdonald aswell as guys like Steve Robertson for letting me get the chance to play a gig at the Ironworks

You’re still too young to go out in town, but what change would you like to see happen to Inverness nightlife before you hit 18?
Hopefully by the time i’m old enough to be out in the pubs and clubs the curfew will be extended.

You’ve just started out producing, so what sound are you aiming for?
Im aiming for a sound like porter robinson or Skrillex but with my own spin on it.

What do you hope to be doing this year? 
This year I plan on getting as many gigs as possible and also work heavily on my production as that is something i really fancy getting involved in.

Whats your favourite milkshake? 

You can catch Liam at the Ironworks on the 25th this week, he'l be playing along with Count Clockwork and The L.E.D.
