RAGELIFE: We're always like a bottle rocket
Gimme Noise spoke with ¡OYE! about how the crew came together ahead of the release of their debut EP, The RAGELIFE.
We got into representing the Midwest in the college battle of the bands, so we went out to L.A. together, and it's kind of built up just through music, so in a weird way the group started off on stage. We just started building up the live show, and before you know it we had a whole live set of music that we wrote for the stage, before we even thought of getting a record together. From the buzz we got out there representing the Midwest in that competition, we started getting more gigs. The demand for new music came so we kept creating more and more, and before you knew it we had a record.
Klassik is a producer that I usually turn to because he's a good friend of mine, but another producer Cory Grindberg from Audio Perm is all over the record too. That's somebody that P/1 grew up with more and has been getting beats from him on his past projects. Who we usually chose for past collaborations sprinkled it's way into a collaboration on there. That worked really well in a good, organic way.
Trap remixes of some songs, a dubstep remix of some songs. Usually I'm the wildest one, just running around, I'm a bundle of energy anyways, that's how I usually am. You'll catch me in the crowd, all over the place jumping around. We try to keep that energy non-stop. It's time to go to work, if that's not why we came then why bother? We're always like a bottle rocket. No time to chill.
