Montreal’s GeistBoy will be making his Music.Art.Ppl and Ottawa premier this Friday February 23rd at the legendary Mercury Lounge in the Byward market. He’s graced the decks at Montreal’s Salon Daome and most recently at AIM this past summer on the main stage.
In honor of his first appearance in the Nation’s Capital we put together some questions for GeistBoy on his musical journey thus far:
- Tell us about your first memories discovering House & Techno music?
The first contact I’ve had with House music was in High school. We had an activity called “TechLounge” which was lunch time, but with Deep House, Tech House and Minimal music along with a cool lighting ambiance. It was really fun because I could play whatever I wanted to play that fit the vibe.
2. When did you decide that you wanted to study audio engineering and be a producer? Favourite track that you’ve released?
I decided to start producing in link with the “TechLounge” lunches. I would play a lot of NTFO and Smash TV tracks during these events, so wanted to do like them. No need to say my attempts weren’t really good. It was later on that I decided to sign up to a music school to be able to understand what music production was.
3. Favourite producer right now?
4. Most memorable gig you’ve mixed at?
Every single one of them are memorable. Every single night is different and magical in it’s own way. But to answer your question, I’d say my first time Djing at AIM Festival. That was truly a game changer.
5. An epic performance you’ve witnessed live?
N’to at Ancient Future in Montreal
6. Where do you see yourself in 2 years?
In the first place it is definitely still being able to do what I love the most which is Djing and Producing. Experiencing what it’s like to Dj in other cities and discovering new music from around the world is definitely in my objectives too.
7. Tell us about your next music trip?
Next music trip is in Ottawa, which would also be my first time Djing outside of Montreal. I’m really looking forward on this party. Can’t wait !
