Decoding Jesus exploded on to the scene in 2009 with his internationally acclaimed collaboration with Superstar DJ Keoki. Additional collaborations in 2010 with artists like Rabbit in the Moon, Soundex, Evan Gamble Lewis, and Melleefresh from Deadmau5 have solidified Decoding Jesus at the top of many wish lists, both artist and promoter. Having already performed at some of the biggest Stateside festivals like WMC, FAME, and Sin City Massive, Decoding Jesus is always certain to leave the audience amazed by his stunning size and hypnotized by the filthiness of his electronic symphonies. Decoding Jesus has released tracks on Warner Bros. Records, Megatone, Cleopatra, Golden Lane, Hypnotic, Moist Music, Play Records, and on his own label- Let’s Beat Milo Records! The following artists have commissioned Decoding Jesus for remix work: Missing Persons, Depeche Mode, Santana, Bob Marley, Tavares, Moby, The Duke, and The Kaiser, and more!
Q: When you decide it’s time to make a new record, is that more exciting or stressful?
Ans: Throughout the year, I am always producing music for my primary ELECTRONICA project Decoding Jesus, or on other contracted remix projects But when I do decide to make a new single, or record, its always based out of positive or negative emotions that affect me deep in the soul. For me, it is more exciting releasing a song, when I produce it with spirit and emotion. As musicians, we all write or produce or best when it comes from within.
Q: What are your favorite song to belt out at the bar/in the car?
Ans: It is an old song but for now, it is a song titled, Tranquilizer (Christian Craken Remix) by OLIVER HUNTEMANN
Q: For our readers who have never heard your music, explain your sound in 5 words?
Ans: Underground warehouse avant-garde synthetic electronica. Is a sentence ok? lol
Q: You write all of your own music; where do you draw inspiration from when you write songs and what’s your favorite part about the process?
ANS: I own my own recording facility with the best hardware and digital audio work stations available, and because of this great opportunity, I do write/produce all my original and remix work by myself. It is rare, but it has occurred, I do get together with other electronica/techno producers and invite them to my studio to collaborate on music projects. I draw my inspiration from moments I experience in life, sometimes it could be from a place I visit or a wordily experience we all go through, like a pandemic.
Q: Who are your inspirations?
Ans: Musically, I have so many inspirations that come from bands like Depeche Mode, Meat Beat Manifesto, The Crystal Method, Nitzer-ebb , Oliver Huntemann, and anything that comes from a conduit of dark, electronic modular sounds.
Q: What is your favorite song to sing live?
Ans: Well I don’t sing but I do have a favorite song of mine I always spin at my bookings, the song is called MOTHER.
Q: Do you have any events coming up or recording going on right now?
Ans: For now, I am not taking any bookings due to this tragic pandemic we are all facing as humans. But because of this, I was able to dig deep and produce a song titled MARE TRANQUILLITATIS , which is my latest release on let’s beat milo records. It is a song that takes the listener to a place we all have seen but knows very little of, The Moon. Imagine yourself in the moon, sitting on a throne chair, and overlooking a place known as MARE TRANQUILLITATIS .. All you hear is this song and witness, just for a moment, a sea of tranquillity.
Q: Do you perform in public? Describe those occasions? Concerts, radio, TV?
Ans: Yes I do, mostly dance clubs, festivals, and bars. In most cases, I do share the stage with other talented dj’s and musicians. These gatherings are always packed and very energetic with very special people. I also have a radio show at Palm Beach radio fm , called MILO BEAT RADIO 5. Here I get to play not only my music, but the music of other electronica artists, dj’s from all over the world. It is a great way to teach and keep techno music enthusiasts on past and latest releases within this style of electronic underground music.
Q: How do you handle mistakes during a performance?
Ans: I do not, I am perfect… LOL.. Just kidding, mistakes do occur during a performance, but how I handle it depends on how much vodka I have in my system. I simply shrug my shoulders and drink too that mistake.
Q: How often and for how long do you practice?
Ans: Well since I am always in a recording studio, I can say as a recording producer, I am always in that auto mode of practicing my art, as for Dj sets, I don’t practice my playlist set, I simply go live with my mix and feed off the energy I get from my crowd. I love it when the sound elicits or draws forth a sexual tension within the dance floor or with a one on one experience. Usually, fat beats with bass tend to tingle or stimulate something inside you. The right vibration always does, hahaha!
