Brooklyn Bowl Presents “In-Between Sets” with Gigamesh
Ahead of his Brooklyn Bowl show on Saturday, December 19, multi-platinum selling indie-dance producer and DJ Gigamesh spoke to Knockdown Alley about his favorite musicians, whether he’d rather live under water or in outer space, and more! Read, and get tickets to see Gigamesh with Kaviar Disco Club!
1. What’s your favorite after-show meal?
2. If you could choose one song to play when you enter a room, what song would you choose?
The Bee Gees – “Inside Out”
3. Who’s your favorite active musician/band today?
4. What artist or band today would you want to collaborate with?
5. What musical moment do you wish you saw in history?
When James Brown invited MJ & Prince to jam on stage with his band.
6. If you weren’t a musician, what job would you choose?
Visual design and/or computer programming.
7. Would you rather live underwater or in outer space?
If it was a big futuristic space station with artificial gravity and artificial habitats, outer space. However, if it the living space was built with today’s technology, probably underwater (it would be fun to see the ocean life up close).
8. What song can you not get out of your head today?
I was just practicing Herbie Hancock – Maiden Voyage, so probably that.
9. If you could travel in time, would you rather go to the future or to the past?
Future, 100%. The past is pretty horrifying. That said, I love learning about history and we should definitely respect certain people and ideas from the past.
10. How do you define success?
Happiness derived from increasing the well-being or happiness of others.
