EJ3000 is a new duo who recently released their first original record titled ‘I CAN’T STOP DANCING’. Although they have spent little time releasing under the new moniker, both artists are experienced musicians, but they are protecting their identities, choosing instead to let the music and their masks establish their newly-founded brand of flaming house tunes. With the new release, we go to know the duo. World meet EJ300:

For people who “can’t stop dancing”, what is the cure?
Fortunately, there is no cure and that’s the beauty… Dancing is life and we must never stop!
What sparked the idea for the new record?
It was a dark clubby night on December 15th 2022. E1500 sent a voice message to J1500 saying “I CANT STOP DANCING” .. J1500 immediately built a beat around that and the rest is history!
At what point in your life did you have that moment where you said to yourself “This is it. This is the type of music I want to create?”
In November 2022, E1500 sent a voice memo to J1500 that said “I can’t stop dancing” … J1500 built a beat around it, and the rest is history.
Please list some of the most influential albums on your creative outlook and output:
‘Channel Tres’ by Channel Tres, ‘Loose’ by Nelly Furtado, ‘EP2’ by Yaeji.
What key pieces of gear/software are you using to define your sound?
SM7B, SH101, JUNO 60, Prophet 5.
What inspires you outside of music? What do you turn to when the creative well runs a little low?
We’ll usually go clubbing to resurrect the spirits of dance; it always works a treat.
What is your opinion on the ever-spreading sub-genre vine? Are there too many? Do you think there’s perhaps a sub-genre that doesn’t get the attention it deserves?
We’re not familiar with vine? But there are no rules; that’s part of the beauty of this all. Hard to say regarding sub-genre attention… there are, for example, electronic music scenes that seem to appreciate a lack of attention, like a secret garden only some hold the key to, which is super cool and cute.
Studio work and music creation or performing and interacting with a live audience, what do you prefer?
They’re so different. A perfect balance would be ideal for us.
Any new or upcoming artists on your radar? Who shouldn’t the world sleep on?
Park Hye Jin, Brijean, Filipe Gordon.
What can we expect from you in the near future? Any upcoming projects or gigs in the pipeline that you would like to tell us about?
We’re brand new, but we have a lot of music coming out this year. Eyes peeled, stay tuned.
One last thought to leave your fans with?
You can’t stop dancing!
