“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?”

“2016 was an interesting year to say the least. There were ups, downs and thankfully plenty of amazing music to keep us going in good times and bad. Now that the year is in our collective rear-view mirror, we asked 238 DJs and electronic-music artists — emerging up-and-comers to veteran stars — to reflect on 2016. Here are their musings listed in alphabetical order.”
