Did you come from a musical family? Were your parents musical?
For the most part, our parents were not musical. edIT’s father was a 70’s rocker in Hong Kong.

What was your earliest musical memory?
Hearing the intro guitar lick to The Rolling Stones’ “Satisfaction.”

How did the Glitch Mob first come together?
We all started as friends who played similar parties and festivals up and down the West Coast. That eventually evolved into making music together.

How do you go about creating tracks?
Everything starts with an emotion or feeling that we are trying to convey. After that we try to craft the best musical story to convey those emotions.

How do you approach your live show differently than your studio work?
It’s just a different mode that your brain turns on. We have to learn how to play our songs, rehearse our songs, refine the sets, refine the visuals…… It’s a completely different process than writing music.

Do you have a process for creating a remix?
The general ethos is “We must take this extremely amazing and classic tune and turn it up to 11.”

What are your hobbies outside of music?
Food, fitness, the great outdoors.

Do you have a quote or motto that you live by?
“Here’s to the now.”

What have been the biggest challenges you’ve had to overcome in your career?
Learning to not take criticism personally.

What advice would you give to musicians just starting out?
Just do you. Tell your own story and tell it passionately.
