“Taking a cue from Andy Warhol’s Interview Magazine, a publication that features intimate conversations between creative thinkers, we asked two of New York’s rising electronic music producers, SpinSpinNYC’s otodojo (Maro Kariya) and Twin Primes (Omar Ahmad), to record a dialogue about what inspires them to create music and what influences their productions. The artists did just that and then some, exploring politics, life lessons and visualizing the sound of molecules like benzene along the way.
Twin Primes (TP): I first heard your remix of “Says” by Nils Frahm through a friend who is known for being a huge critic.
otodojo (O): I didn’t think that putting drums on top of a piano sequence looping for 10 minutes would lead to such a great connection.
TP: What’s behind the name, otodojo?”

Microtones is a musical experience for those that resist convention.
Alexei Versino from Stump Valley (Rush Hour, Uzuri, Off Minor)
Hailing from Berlin, Alexei has witnessed a swift rise to prominence in the electronic music scene following several releases on Rush Hour, Uzuri, and Off Minor as one half of the deep, jazzy, genre-bending Stump Valley. Having kicked off the 5 year anniversary Boiler Room Berlin Pool Party in August, and a podcast on Dekmantel, their momentum is unceasing. As an avid music collector, Alexei has packed his suitcase with records that are sure to cause anatomical fluctuations.
From animation inspired progressive hip hop to minimal ambient microhouse, otodojo resists confinement in any particular genre. The name ‘otodojo’ is translated to ‘a sound place for learning’, which is its function: an environment built for experimentation, and free from expectation. otodojo’s newest EP ‘A Piece Removed’ has just been released on SpinSpinNYC.
