Baha! So do you cry every time you see a razor now?
(Laughs) I’ve been conditioned now. Nah, after that I can listen to the melody fine,
but during the time it was hard.
Did you have any angry songs? Like Ben Folds’ Song for the Dumped or something?
Nah, when I get emotional I really want to get angry because I know sometimes it makes
it easier. But I’m the type of guy that would want to wallow in sadness for a bit. I can get
out of it pretty quick, otherwise it’s borderline depression, I’m pretty sure (laughs).
You’ve remixed a lot of people, like Flume and Drake. Is there anyone who you
100 per cent wouldn’t remix?
Nah, even if someone came up and was like, “Hey, do you want to remix this
Taylor Swift song?”, if I liked the song it wouldn’t be an issue. I take it song by song.
No one’s perfect and I don’t think artists should be judged like that. It’s all about
personal taste for me.
Who would be your dream artist to collaborate with?
I really like FKA Twigs, there’s something about her music and something about her
as a person, that’s quite alluring. I respect her as an artist. Pharrell, as well, is incredible.
Definitely. So tell me a bit about Westons, your barbershop.
My barber at the time, Justin, always wanted to open one and he’d been talking about
it ever since I first started going to him. I came in as a partner, so there are three owners:
myself, him and another barber. We pretty much just jumped in the deep end, we built
everything, from the website to the actual shop itself, in about two weeks.
Wow! That’s insane.
Well, I say “we”, but they were the ones that got their hands dirty. I did the website. Making
sure a barbershop runs smoothly is pretty easy due to the nature of the demand of what we’re
doing – you know, people always need a haircut.
So do you think Perth guys need their hair saving? Do they have pretty bad
hair in general?
I think most guys have pretty bad hair in general! Not to say it matters, but there’s
always room for a man to groom himself. There’s always going to be men who think it’s
a bit on the feminine side but we have to let that go finally and say, just because you look
after yourself doesn’t mean anything about your sexuality or your preferences, or anything
like that. Men are starting to come around, I know some pretty blokey dudes who love to
get their hair done and are really meticulous about it.
What do you think is the ultimate hair/facial hair combo?
I’m half Asian so I can’t really grow the thickest beard, but I’d like to grow a semi-beard and
combine it with a nice clean comb over, I think that look is really classic. I always ask Chet
Faker if I can cut his hair because he’s got this lank, straggly kind of thing (laughs). But he
won’t let anyone touch it! Obviously, I would never touch the beard. The day he shaves the
beard is the day the internet will blow up.
