Big Up Podcast 64 ~ Viers

19-year-old Leeds-based Viers (Jordon Saxton for mom) comes from the prodigy pool we’ve been swimming in lately. With Boddika-esque basslines, Loefah-y rhythms, and Detroit-like vibes, Viers is the hottest rising techno star at the mo. We love to share new music with you, and we kindly asked Viers to put together a special mix for Big Up readers. Can’t say he didn’t give it his best. You’ll like what you hear. Just turn the sub up and turn the lights down… To set the mood and all…

VIERS FILLING IN THE BLANKS



Hi, I’m Viers and I can’t live without…
a turntable and my records. Would also like to say my laptop and speakers, but that’s secondary to my vinyl collection.

Making music is my way of…
chilling out.

Just a year ago I couldn’t even imagine that I would…
be getting played on Mary Anne Hobbs show. Such a shame she decided to call it quits, hope she goes on to do some more exciting inspiring stuff.

My mom thinks my music is…
I don’t really talk to anyone about my music, would probably say she thinks it all sounds the same…

The best setting to play my music would be…
a warehouse with an Iration Steppas system. Anything that can get that low end thump.

Between deejaying and producing I would choose…
producing. I find it more creative personally.

It’s so annoying when people online…
create stupid genres. “Deep-dubstep-house” isn’t a thing, no matter how much you want it to be…

I chose to name my track “92688”, because…
I like to slam my keyboards num pad to create song names.

I’d love to write a soundtrack to…
some post-apocalyptic landscape, think Fallout meets Blade Runner.

My proudest moment so far was…
being played by Mary Anne Hobbs, as well as South London Ordnance, Deft and recently the guys at Church. Lots of lovely people showing lots of support for what I’m doing.

The world would be a better place, if…
no idea… Maybe if it was entirely populated by pandas and bamboos.
