How familiar are you with things like brand theory? Basically, has pc music been directed so that it became a cult brand, or did it happen more naturally? How to you intend to maintain brand image as you diversify and gain popularity? Or do you just not care (quite possibly the most sensible answer tbh)
What happened to Kane West?
Would you be open to the possibility of the wider production and release of merchandise for sale online? As a member of the fanbase, I would gladly buy a plethora of pc music related items, and I feel like it's a bit of a lost opportunity especially considering how rooted in pop this label is.
I don't know if you'll be able to provide much of an answer on this, but is SOPHIE even considering joining the ranks of pc music now that his contract has expired?
Also, care to explain that weird casting call for a short film centered around religious battles?
- Are there any genres you would like to work in as a songwriter/producer outside PC Music's scope? - What is the strangest commercial offer you've gotten? - What was your introduction to electronic music? - What's your favorite anime? - If you had a job that wasn't in the arts what would it be? - What talent would you like to have? - What are the most important things you've learned since beginning PC Music? - Is there anything you've done in the past few years that you regret or think people misunderstood?
Are you familiar with K-HOLE? They're another group that started screwing around with trends they were seeing/imagining in the world of corporate branding, and then pretty quickly got some attention and ended up allowing themselves to be part of the (avant)mainstream of corporate marketing and branding by becoming a legit trend forecasting consultancy.
Do you read any of the PCM thinkpieces? Do they affect how you run the label, consciously or unconsciously?
How long did it take after starting the label before people from the mainstream music industry started reaching out?
How much time do you spend producing vs managing the label?
Has anyone from PC Music posted on the forum under an alias before?
Does PC Music take interns?
Why was Gamsonite called Gamsonite? There were more guitar-based acts on there - do you see PC Music encompassing any music that scans as "rock" or will it stay electronic focused?
and when will we see an official release of Igneous Intrusion? The world is waiting!
Thanks Friopi for facilitating, and thanks AG for catering directly to the stans!
Do you see a concert tour happening in the future? Will you be releasing any of you remixed songs that you performed at the Echoplex recently? (Specifically IDL + Hey QT & Give Me Everything Remix) And what happened to Princess Bambi?
Are there any plans to bring the PC Music crew to Australia for a tour? Is PC Music Vol. 2 still happening? Is so, when? When will we be getting an official release of Supernatural? What is happening with Hannah Diamond's album? What is your personal favourite PCM release?
I don't want to be alone in my bedroom on the internet waiting to say "Hi"
I love the way way left field samples that you use. Like the "Sims 3 Voice Over Series | 'Beach Blondes' 2" youtu.be/xbc8vm9OZn0 in Raido Tank Mix. Imaging one person flipping out knowing where the sample is from and freaking out. My question is what guides your selection in these things. Is it the sound of the clip that attracts you to it or more so the context and oddness of it? What was your thought process of including the "Sims 3 Voice Over Series" sample? Also are there any really odd or interesting samples that you can share.
Have you or anybody else on the label ever made something you've deemed not to be "PC Appropriate"? It seems a wide variety of things that people might not think of as typical pc music fare has been released on the label, but I feel like there's always been a logical throughline with them.
You played "Cab Fare" by Souls Of Mischief in your Boiler Room set, is there any other underground 90s hip-hop that you're a fan of?
