DJ on Deck - EC Twins Edition!
EC Twins give us an exclusive inside look at their musical inspirations, their long-time relationship with nightlife, and their excitement for their return to Reno!
LEX - What were your first thoughts on being asked to play at LEX Nightclub in Reno?
EC T - "We were thrilled! We have only actually played in Reno once before, but we made so many friends on that one occasion, so we are very excited to perform for them again in such a great City!"
LEX - Who were some of your influences when you started DJing? And today?
EC T - "Producers like Jam & Lewis, Niles Rodgers, Giorgio Moroder and Daft Punk and also a lot of soul balladeers. When we started clubbing, our tastes led us to vocal house dj's as kids, like Danny Rampling and Roger Sanchez. There's really too many to list, but we learned so much from local DJ's, at the clubs we'd flier for in the early days, like "Burger Queen" and our own club Eye Candy, that was in Edinburgh. The resident DJ's like Nejat Barton and Craig Drysedale had skills and high energy performances that matched even the biggest names. You can still see evidence of their influence in our shows today."
LEX - What song can you not go one night without playing?
EC T - "There are no songs that are obligatory for our set, because it always changes, but recently our new release "THIS IS HOW WE DO IT" seems to be a big crowd favorite."
LEX - Who would you love to DJ with?
EC T - "Everyone... everyone big name and every local talent. We just love to DJ!"
LEX - What is the most memorable show you ever played?
EC T - "Our night out started when we walked in to our first house music event at 16 years old and it's still going. This entire life has been one hell of a memorable show and we intend to make more memories for ourselves and everyone else in Reno!"
