Following a standard week of hanging out with space hookers and chowing down on Xenarbeast from Planet X-5, a certain Space Dimension Controller sat down to have words about his love of ancient Earth instruments and slick piano-print attire.
What is Mr 8040′s primary objective whilst space travelling? Some noble cause or merely to seek out the love of astrohoes?
Before I came back through time my main objective was to protect the boundaries of the Tiraquon6 Security Barrier. As Deputy Space Dimension Controller of the Tiraquon Security Council my main area of focus was Mikrosector-50, the new home of mankind since the death of the Sun left the planet dead in 2257. In this time, my primary objective at the moment is to restore the time travelling capabilities of my Electropod. Once I’m able to return to 2352 I will send back the album I have prepared for R&S. Until then I’m just all about getting to know Earth and spreading Galactic Funk across the planet.
What are your favourite (galactic or non-galactic) sounds of the moment?
I really like Boddika and Boxcutter plus a friend of mine James makes some good stuff. The last track I heard of his was very good. Hopefully it gets released.
Your outfits tend to include leopard print and ‘piano ties’ when DJing, is this the daily attire of the people from your planet?
I have a uniform and protective helmet, but they are in my main vessel floating somewhere in space near where I accidentally sent myself back through time. Once I’m able to return to 2352 I will retrieve it. The outfits I wear now are things I find and throw together. I just really like the leopard print and piano ties, I think they look fressssssh. The citizens of Mikrosector-50 have to wear jumpsuits that come in a variety of primary colours depending on what age you are and what demographic you are a part of.
What’s next on today’s agenda after this interview?
I’m just relaxing in my Electropod before a gig tomorrow. I’m going to play around with some synthesizers, what’s new.
