Can you tell us more about your latest single “Wasabi”?
Wasabi is supposed to be a fun club track that showcases our Bay Area influence. As DJs, most of the music we make is with the dance floor in mind first.
Did a particular event inspire you to write this song?
No, a particular event didn’t inspire us to write this song. Our creative inspiration came organically during a session with JAMO!
Do you have any plans to release a music video for this single?
We’ll be shooting a music video for this in late September, hoping to release it in October.
What was your recording and writing process like for “Wasabi”?
JAMO! came over one day to hang out and record. We were going through some beats and he picked out the skeleton that eventually became “Wasabi.” As we were working on the track, he just started kinda singing the hook playfully, and that’s when we knew we had it.
What was it like to work with JAMO! & City James and what did they bring to the table?
Both of these artists are close friends of ours, so the process was really fun and relaxed. Both of them are extremely talented and fast writers, so getting into sessions with them is always a treat because we can accomplish so much.
What role does the Bay Area play in your writing?
We grew up during the peak of the hyphy era, and no matter what those style of songs always go off in the Bay. I guess since we grew up seeing how crowds react to the Bay bounce, we end up incorporating those elements unconsciously.
Does your new single mean we can expect a new album? If so, how’s it coming along?
No, we have no album plans for the foreseeable future. We’re focused on putting out consistent singles every month, possibly dropping an EP this fall.
Do you have any plans to hit the road soon?
No travel plans yet. Our main focus right now is to put out as much music as we can while DJing locally in LA.
What else is happening next in the Tastebreakers’ world?
More music, more music videos, and many more collaborations with our very talented friends.
