Robo-Psycho Ent. & Open Pupils are dedicated to bringing new artists your way at our live events. This weekend on Night #1 of Robo-Psycho Entertainment & Open Pupils Present: Heroes VS. Villains Weekend [18+] @ Mickey’s Pub & Grille we’re VERY proud to present BRUTE!!
Robo-Psycho Ent. & Open Pupils: Tell us a bit about yourself. How did you get started?
Brute: My name is Leo, AKA Brute. I am a DJ and soon to be producer from LA but originally from the Antelope Valley. I started spinning almost 3 years ago. My first set-up was a DVD player, a cd player, and a vested mixer, haha. once I started I couldn’t stop and now I am here! Oh ya! Long walks on the beach and chili dogs are awesome.
R-PE & OP: Sounds like a difficult first set-up, hahaha. Who would you say your major influences are EDM-wise?
Brute: Oh man, thats a big list. The Others, Rusko, The Bloody Beetroots, DJ Bam Bam, Joker, The Brookes Brothers, Danny Byrd, Bukez Finezt, and 12th Planet to name a few. Many influences in many genres, haha, can’t help it with EDM.
R-PE. & OP: Too true, what about non-EDM influences?
Brute: People Under the Stairs FOR SURE.They are at the top. Alchemist, The Pharcyde, Slum Village, Childish Gambino, The Bled, Born of Osiris, Every Time I Die, and Between the Buried and Me. So many influences. Can’t forget MC Pee Pants, haha.
R-PE. & OP: Hahahaha, I know a few of our artists reppin’ Sir Pee Pants. Have you ever been to or heard of Ridgecrest, CA?
Brute: Definitely heard of but never been. I may have passed through, though. I like to think the desert rat cities know of each other because we have felt the pains of desert life (or lack there of) haha.
R-PE. & OP: We definitely have a fun audience & are looking forward to hearing you throw down some BASS! What should our fan’s expect from your performance?
Brute: I hear Ridgecrest likes to get down so I am going to go crazy. (Everything from) Heavy hitting dubs to some floor knocking house and electro. I mostly focus on Dubstep but this show I am changing it up for the people. My goal is to have everyone, even the people working the bar, dancing their ass off. I will succeed!
R-PE. & OP: Rad! Thanks for the interview. Any last words for our fans?
Brute: I’m bringing the noise. You guys bring the party! Can’t wait to see ya Ridgecrest and thank you all for supporting your local EDM scene! Much love and thanks to Robo-Psycho Ent. as well for putting these shows on and the interview love. GET READY FOR THE BASS!
