Swaager teamed up with Euphonic Conceptions and Bonfire Entertainment to close out the ski season at Sandbar in Vail. Elm & Oak's hip-hop/electro duo, Two Fresh, Vail’s Own TEDDY HUXXTABLE, and DJ Ramona with Bridget Law provided incredible music from start to finish!
We managed to sneak away in the freezing cold with Two Fresh to ask them a few questions about their music, relationship status', and upcoming projects.
What's up Two Fresh? You guys freezing your asses off? we're actually not too bad, kinda enjoying it!
What did you think of Cherub last night? Cherub was the fucking shit! They are the homies, we grew up with them. Everyone from Elm & Oak was out there. Except for Alex (Paper Diamond), he was on tour.
You guys are identical twins right? Actually, we are fraternal twins! We just look a hell of a lot alike.
What can we expect from tonight's set? It's a lot of new shit, a lot of uptempo and more hip-hop shit tonight, it's been a real cool year because we have been exploring more rap and touching a little radio to play our music as well.
Hip-hop has taken a whole new direction, what are your thoughts on where it is and where it's heading? It's been dope! Over the past five years there has been an abundance of more creative, out of the box, hip hop. It's gotten a lot of people back in the scene. The beats are different. In the 90's it was all about rap, now it's about sound, bpm, and how fast the track is - and it makes you feel different. An artist does not have to be the best rapper out there, but if his beats are the best, it makes them fun to listen to.
What do you have planned for the summer and beyond? We have some festivals, we are doing a festival in toronto and detroit (DEMF), and a bunch of other - those are always fun.
How was SXSW? Yeah, that was awesome, definitely our favorite festival. Shit always goes nuts down there!
What are your favorite festivals? Electric Forest was ridiculous last year, we had the opportunity to play a secret set with Menert which was amazing!
Anything else you want to share with us? Definitely! Look out for the new EP, we just finished it two days ago. We are dropping some of it tonight for sure!
Last question...the girls want to know…are you guys single? Yes we are! We are single, yeah! except for Colby (drummer) sucker [laughs]! (don't worry, we'll edit that one out).
