Who Are The Underachievers?

Upcoming Brainfeeder Project

Issa Dash: “We’re not going to do an album yet. We’re going to do an EP, but it’s going to be more Brainfeeder-ish if that makes sense, more experimental music, more trippy beats, FlyLo type of stuff. But not just FlyLo, because there’s going to be more serious producers—not that the other producers weren’t serious—but we want to show people what we can do over a Harry Fraud or a [Hudson Mohawke] or a Clams Casino [production].

 

I feel like our album has to have a feeling to it, like a theme to it. Even though every song is going to sound different, I still want it to really flow from the first song to the eleventh song completely like a movie. - Issa Dash

 

“We should be able to get Clams. Hud Mo we could probably get. I know [he just signed to Kanye], but he’s also on [Flying Lotus’ label] Warp. But we’ve got A-Trak, we’ve got Supreme Cuts, Lapalux, we’ve got a whole bunch of Brainfeeder artists.

“We just started collecting beats. I feel like we did a fairly good job of keeping Indigoism versatile, but still making sure it flowed well from the first song to the end. But now, from the beginning of the project, I actually want to make sure every song [fits together].

“I feel like our album has to have a feeling to it, like a theme to it. Even though every song is going to sound different, I still want it to really flow from the first song to the eleventh song completely like a movie.

“Before we start writing, I want to have eight beats already on deck. We’ve got three right now that we’re considering, but I want to have five beats and then start to go, ‘This [beat] is going to go into this song this way,’ and really try to write it like a book. We haven’t really figured out [the concept for the album] yet, but it definitely [is going to have one].”
