An Interview With: MORRT

21-year-old Derby native MORRT is the future face of house music.

His newest single on Bambusa Records, “Be There”, is a deep house lover’s dream – grab it now and learn more about this young producer here.

PP: What got you into producing house music?

M: I went to a festival about 4/5 years ago purely house music and I always wanted to be on stage rather than in the crowd!

PP: Do you have any mentors in the music scene, or did you break in by yourself?

M: Completely broke through myself. I spoke to people along the way and got the occasional tip but overall it was all me!

PP: How would you define your sound?

M: It’s hard to tell right now. I’m at the point where I’m just trying to find my sound. I’ve got lots of unheard tracks but I always end up changing them and I’m not sure yet which way I want to head yet musically. By that I mean I’ve not decided whether I want to go more underground or make some nice vocal tracks.

PP: What equipment do you usually use to play and to produce?

M: Well, when I do a DJ set it’s the standard CDJs. I produce on Ableton, and have a few plug-ins and recently purchased a keyboard to go with it.

PP: If you could collaborate with anyone, dead or alive, whom would you choose?

M: If I could have any vocalist, I would’ve loved Michael Jackson. Not only was he ‘the king of pop’ and made some wicked tunes, but his voice could definitely fit some modern house tunes. If I could have anyone to collaborate with now, I’d probably say Blonde. You know the guys fromEton Messy? Really good producers and catchy tunes. But nothing I’m not capable of given a bit of effort.

Fun facts:

PP: Favorite clothing brand as of now?

M: I haven’t got a favourite, but check out some friends from BAAS.

PP: Star sign?

M: Capricorn.

PP: Strangest gig you’ve ever played?

M: Probably Cantebury. The after party / session got a bit weird.

PP: Tell us about your tattoos! When did you first start getting them, and what’s your wildest tattoo story?

M: Nothing weird about them really, I got them when I first got any money and was younger and stupid. Of course I regret them now.

PP: What’s something people wouldn’t expect you to be interested in?

M: For people that don’t know me I LOVE Star Wars!
