Interview Meikee Magnetic
Where are you both originally from and where is this project located?
Lucas is from São Paulo, Brazil and Sean is from San Francisco, California. We operate out of San Francisco currently.
How did you both meet and what brought you both together for this project?
We’ve been producing music and DJing together for a couple years now and came together to form this project out of our love for high energy dance music. We love going hard with the crowd.
What tools in the studio are you using to create your music?
Ableton and various VSTs.
Tell us about your debut performance at club TempleSF Friday October 19th and how was the response?
It was dope. Temple knows how to throw a party. The crowd was giving and Sean was having fun feeding them liquor off the stage, lol.
Do you find it an advantage working in the nightlife industry and seeing big artists every weekend?
Definitely, we can interact with artists first hand, sometimes exchange tracks, show our work and learn from them. It’s a great way to network with the best in the industry.
We have a lot of surprises planned for 2019, you’ll just have to wait and see.
What does Dark Beauty mean to you?
Always reminds us of our good friend Meikee ;)
