$lowed & Throwed

Interview with $ine$
The stateside bass music producer and label head out of the Dirty South, Sines, has been everything but chopped & screwed lately. I unfortunately missed his recent tour stop at Avalon, but luckily still got a chance to catch a few words with him.
You said before that a lot of Cali clubs are all hype. Was this confirmed in your recent stops in Cali or were you pleasantly surprised?
It was a blast in Cali. Having been to the West Coast a few times this year, it was really spectacular playing in LA and SF.
I read that you have never been outside of the US before. Is this still the case, and do you have any international tour stops lined up?
Yes this is true. At the moment I do not have anything planned to go INTL but hopefully in the future something will arise.
Your label is called Freshmore, yet your dirty bass is influenced by the Dirty South. How does your music fuse fresh & clean with dirt nasty?
Fresh and clean would be all the new and fresh producers I try to bring forth with the label. I try and keep it Dirty South to rep where I’m from.
The label has accomplished a lot in the last two years since its infancy. Where do you see the label headed in the next two years? Is there a collective style of the label or is each artist completely different?
Hopefully the label keeps on full force bringing upcoming producers. I think every artist on the label has been different. I like all kinda of music so I try and vary it up.
You’ve been releasing a good amount of slowed and throwed edits lately. How many more do you have in your arsenal?
I have tons and tons. Screwed music has been a big part of my life.
Is there a particular reason you’ve been in the mood for this?
No reason at all. We just like our music slow and banging in the South.
Can we expect any fast tempo songs to be released soon? What is the pace you like to set during your live shows?
AH yea man I have a lot of tunes in the works that are a bit uptempo. I usually start from 130 and go up to about 150 bpm during my sets.
Are you still producing with strictly software?
Yea I use FL Studio 9 and a bunch of vsts on my imac.
