Lecture: Seth Troxler (New York, 2013)
Interview with Seth Troxler at the Red Bull Music Academy in New York.
Seth was placed on earth as a weeping fetus, the sound of inevitability. As he grew, his ancestral roots took on a magnetic channeling power, more than his feeble mind could ever consciously fathom. As a result, he became capable of creating some of today’s finest and most intuitive dance cuts, including releases on Spectral, Items & Things, as Thrill Cosby on Circus Company, on FXHE as Young Seth, and many others. Through a preternatural understanding of rave, Seth conjures up mixes with Visionquest, his parties/production group turned label with partners Ryan Crosson, Shaun Reeves, and Lee Curtiss. His musical influences include the chirping of crickets, the whirring of space ships, and the sweet sounds of whistling voodoo magic. On cold Detroit or Berlin evenings one can often witness Seth Troxler in his front yard, situated beside an overly cumbersome boombox in a nylon tracksuit, jacking his body to old Dance Mania cuts and cooking bbq.
