Hold on to your sunnies, mate! The Aussies are coming to put the bass in your face! We The Beat presents Cut Snake to perform at EOS this Friday, October 23 and these guys are bringing straight up beats that will reverberate your vertebrae, make your back whip lash, and, like the lyrics of their single “Maybe Why Not,” they’ll be asking the club to “get freaky c’mon.” The Independent caught up with Paul Fisher, one of the mad scientists behind the deep-house duo to talk about their new E.P. “Life is a Beach,” and to maybe get an inkling of just how insane this party is going to be.
Cut Snake has been together for ten years and started as creative project between Paul Fisher and Leigh Sedley, two pro surfers with a passion for music, partying and surfing. Their music certainly reminds the listener of an endless summer in Indonesia — expect to enjoy warm, thumping bass, ambient 80’s hooks, and a bit of humidity from the dance floor.
Fisher is known to be the life of the party for his obscene pranks and his boisterous personality in the surfing world, but now their music is being taken a bit more seriously, garnering acclaim in the electronic music world. The band has signed to a big label with Warner Brother Records and has recently been touring the country.
Fisher told us about their performance at CSSRD Festival, saying, “Oh mate, that festival was mental. It’s pretty much on the water, with three stages, and it’s a sick boutique festival. It was like 105 degrees… It was going off!”
Deep house has a way of getting the club into a good relaxed trance while also keeping the party pumping, ‘Fish’ explained. “We just like to have a good time with good people. When we go to our gigs, everybody is having a hell of time, and if the vibe’s good we’re having a good time. You can’t really lose, can you?”
Come to EOS tonight to see the DJs live in action. Lastly, some words from the comedian and poet, Paul Fisher: “I just want to say show up and blow up, you cunts. We’re ready for war. I heard Santa Barbara knows what’s up, so if they let us down we’ll be pissed, yew!”
Cut Snake perform at EOS Lounge (500 Anacapa St.) tonight at 9 p.m. Visit cutsnake.nightout.com for more information.
