Vancouver electronic music producer Self Evident is at Spiritbar tonight.

Yan Zombie Presents: Self Evident

Representing the Lighta! crew from Vancouver, Self Evident has been described "a dance music encyclopedia"

By Yan Zombie

Salutations my fellow beat enthusiasts. The first Yan Zombie Presents with HxdB last month was a great success with serious good vibes and people. Tonight I’m really excited to welcome Self Evident.

Representing the Lighta! crew from Vancouver, he has been described “a dance music encyclopedia, full of knowledge about obscure niche genres but still with one foot in the future at all times for that rare blend of archival expertise and up-to-the-minute freshness,”  by Resident Advisor music blog and is one of the most prolific producers in the game today.

We are currently working on an EP of music together for Mat The Alien’s Really Good Recordings. So I wanted to ask a few questions about his own solo work including his self titled debut album released March 22 on South Fork Sound out of New York .

Yan Zombie: What can you tell us about the concept or inspiration for your debut album?

Self Evident: There wasn’t really a concept. It was more like slice in time. 2012 to be exact. It was a good year for new styles and new fusions.

YZ: What is Wepa! all about?

SE: That is a project with Gameboy and Will Eede. We take inspiration from all types of world music, and the music of indigenous people, and add a really modern touch.

YZ: Where’s is the scariest hotel you’ve ever stayed on tour?

SE: Hmmm. They’ve all been pretty decent actually.

YZ: Have you popped a molly? And are you sweating?

SE: No more questions! (Cue the EAZY-E jam)


Also in the mix Friday night at the Spiritbar will be my Cypha.Nex collaborators Digs and Vs. Expect, some hip-hop, trap, juke, jungle, booty, garage, dancehall and the unexpected!

In yet another testament to the infinite kindness and generosity of zombies, the show is only $5 before 11 p.m. and $7 after that.
