Art Basel is December 1-4, which means Miami started the parties last week. With our event “Basel Bass” coming up on the 3rd, we knew had to catch up with The Papaya God himself to ask a few questions.
OVS: I am Supermeng, the Almighty Master Cleanse Leader of the Bermuda Triangle, The Papaya God, the Soundwave Magician , Prince Triangle ??????????Otto Von Schirach.
SM: You’ve been part of the Miami music scene for a long time, what makes Miami special when it comes to music?
OVS: Miami has so much music in the air it’s easy to capture all the magic. We can sprout so many rhythms with this melting pot in the Bermuda triangle.
SM: You’ve gotten the chance to tour a lot as well. What have been your most memorable stops so far?
OVS: I love all the places I get to see, especially Mexico, Europe, Los Angeles, but one of the most different is Japan.
SM: Some people still talk about your set at Boiler Room in Berlin. The word “legendary” has been tossed around. You definitely opened a porthole or two; there were a lot of sweaty bodies and dancing animals. What was it like playing there?
OVS: It was super fun I got to decalcify the pineal gland to 1 million viewers live, and many others as time turns into the future.
OVS: This new bass movement is fierce!!! These guys are sound gangsters, they make me feel so inspired and that makes me want to make eargasms.
SM: We’ve heard you have a ton of unreleased material that is begging to see the light of day. What can you tell us, if anything, about what you have in store?
OVS: Planning on releasing all that ear candy. Probably in a couple of releases; one release for the masses, more Miami bass, Latino Bermuda bass; and another two releases for the inner ear heads, portal prayers.
SM: Anything else you would like people to know about you, your music, your art, or tasty veggie recipes?
OVS: I enjoy jackfruit on the triangle beaches with my big booty bitch!
