Featured Artist interview: From Dust (E56)

About: From Dust

"It all started many years ago in a little suburb somewhere in Sweden. Dex and Ape grew up a few blocks away from eachother. While walking the paths of life we followed eachothers tracks and ended up working together and also being neighbours. In the summer of 2010 when we were bored of the sun and seeking shade inside Dex’s appartment we started doing music. It was a blast and we were really productive. Miss Dust joined us and everything kept rolling. We’ve made a few collabs with emcees and singers from all around Europe and are open for any cooperation. Our influences are mainly oldschool hiphop, american underground, soul, jazz or anything with a cool beat, melody or what so ever."

1). If you had to choose, in what country and at what time would you want to live?
New Zealand present day, cause its as far away from Sweden as possible. Dont know about the hip hopscene there but it will probably work out there as well.

2). What is your favorite month and why?
May, cause its not too cold and not too hot! and people start to hang outdoors and not sitting at home being boring.

3). At what time of the day do you usually prefer to write your music?
The three of us in From Dust have different creative hours. Ape is a morningperson and Miss Dust and Dexter Cliff work better late at night. But we are always on for makin music at any time when inspiration comes.

4).What is your favorite instrument and why?
We love the cello, turntables for samplin and oldschool drums. 

5).What is your favorite drink?
All kinds of different beers from everywhere. and Ape is also a coffee addict.
