A little while ago we posted some tunes by an American duo called 'This One's for Cody'. They had some amazingly unique electro bootlegs of dope hip hop tunes that I personally got very excited about. Being a bit of a party DJ myself, it's always hard trying to bridge the gap between playing as many Will Smith song's as possible, and keeping the energy up in a big room, and these dudes seem to have those skills on tap.
Today I've been lucky enough to get an interview with the guys who have just made their debut original track available to the masses. It's called 'Drugs' and it's a bangin' electro anthem that is sure to send the masses crazy. It's got an energy and girth about it that is not dissimilar to fellow American producers Cold Blank and Designer Drugs. It's sure to take them places. But don't take it from me, check it out and download it below while you scroll over the interview. There's also tonnes more jams on their SoundCloud.
Drugs by This One's For Cody
Welcome To Groove City This Ones For Cody!!
Firstly, who are you? Where you from? Why should we give a damn about you?
We're This One's For Cody. Two college roommates who, unknowingly, are from the same hometown. We've spent our last three years in Stockton, CA (Officially voted the Most Miserable City in the United States) but we're heading back to our old stomping grounds of Orange County, California. And most importantly, if you don't give a damn now, you'll just look like a poser once we're big.
What’s in a name? I’ve seen some weird ones with strange spelling and letters missing for no reason but your strikes me as one that may have some purpose to it..
The name Ke$ha was already taken.
What’s life like in Cali? What’s the big sound that’s melting faces and breaking hearts around the scene at the moment?
Life in California is eclectic. The South is big into Dub Step while up north has a bigger appreciation for Disco. We've driven thousands of miles and have heard too many different sounds to be able to pinpoint what's biggest here.
I get almost conflicting vibes when listening to your productions some times.. They scream party djs at me but the electro vibe to them can’t be ignored.. Where do your inspirations and influences come from for your hybrid style??
We try to have our music remind listeners of the sickest/grimiest house party they have ever been to. We call it Party Electro
Grocery list of what’s in your studio for the kids out there..
Logic Pro basically with some VSTs. Live, we just use Pioneer CDJ 1000s. Keep it simple.
What are you working on at the moment and what can you see in your near future???
We're scheduling another tour up and down California and we're definitely planning on popping out more remixes and originals. Hopefully an EP soon.
Correct me if I’m wrong by Sydney’s own Dcup is heading your way shortly for a tour and stopping by for a show with label mates LBCK.. What are you expecting from our export and do you know much about the Sydney scene?
Too be honest, we'd heard a little about the Sydney scene in the past. We've seen videos of some incredible festivals there, and we've gotten chummy with Northie/Brain Matters, but DCUP really showed us that Aussies can do work.
Justin Bieber.. Love him or hate him?
Two words. Beiber. Fever.
What are 2 things that we don’t know about This Ones For Cody?
We love ice hockey and we started off writing acoustic music together. We still break out the guitars when we need to unwind.
What are three things you can’t live without?
Chapstick, Chapstick, Chapstick
Have you ever ridden a Kangaroo?
We're pretty sure Kangaroos aren't even real.
Any plans to tour to our fair nation?
To make it there. And when we're there, to kill it. Plain and simple.
Finally, in my eyes, being a member of gen y, you are either one of two people.. You’re a Marisa Cooper fan or a Summer Roberts fan .. Which one are you and why?
Our hearts belong to Sandy Cohen's eyebrows..
