Hot Air Episode: #16 Aybee Talks To Joe Europe
Many artists talk a good talk about being forward thinking, constantly evolving and pushing their personal boundaries, but few follow through on this like Armon Bazile. As Aybee, Bazile has put out record after record of deep, innovative house music that draws in influences from across the musical spectrum but that’s only part of the picture. He’s released under countless other monikers, held down one of the best labels in the business for over 15 years, and has managed to cross the divide to become an accomplished filmmaker as well. Having just teamed up for an excellent jazz funk excursion with legendary musician Lars Bartkhun I caught up for a chat with Aybee and we took in a fair bit of territory. We covered his chequered musical past, his creative process and how he’s translated his talents into filmmaking. Now Armon had a heavy cold when we were recording this, so extra props to him for soldiering through and still managing to come across eloquent, insightful and humorous in spite of all the coughing and sneezing.
