After Jordan Osten (Lucy Luxe) threw down a massive set at Basscapades Vol. 3 in Lawrence, Ks I sat down with her to talk about where it all started. Jordan and Monica Farr make up Dirty Talk however, Monica was unable to make the show due to prior engagements.
NEZ: For instance tonight, how do you approach a show differently when you are going out by yourself vs. when Monica is there?
Jordan: Honestly it is not approached much differently, it’s the same vibe. It’s double the energy when we play together because we feed off each other immensely.
NEZ: What is the driving force behind you wanting to create music?
Jordan: I just really have a passion for music and I’ve had it since I was two years old, I was a dancer for 14 years. Music has always been something that I’ve felt and always been a really big part of my life. I love music, I love what I do, and that is my driving force. It means everything to me in a nut shell.
NEZ: Who do you admire most?
Jordan: I admire, Reid Speed. She is my idol; she is who I looked up to ever since I became a DJ. She is a female force to be reckoned with. I also really admire J. Rabbit’s style and have always enjoyed him live.
NEZ: What got the ball rolling for Dirty Talk?
Jordan: We won a remix contest for Vaski (Play Me records), and we got to meet Reid Speed. We did the remix contest with my buddy Nostalgia, who is also a really big influence. Vaski and Nostalgia are huge inspirations for everyone in Minneapolis. In 2010 we remixed “Jelly’ by Vaski,
I am really quite the normal 21 year old. On my weeks at home I’m usually found in class during the day and relaxing at my house with my four roomies/best friends at night. I also work for a promoting company in Minneapolis called Sound in Motion and on the weekends I’m not traveling, I’m usually working a show. I love to spend time, just with my friends and usually just chill out and smoke lots and lots [laughs]. I also really love any zombie TV shows or horror movies….that is my shit!!
NEZ: What has been your favorite moment of your career?
Jordan: We played at LA Beatdown with Figure and Feed Me at the Music Box; we chilled with Reid, Kevin Leos (Skrillex’s manager), Obsidian, and J. Rabbit. That was the night when I thought is this really happening? It was fucking awesome and the best vibes all night long!
NEZ: What is your favorite set?
Jordan: One of my favorite sets was at the Bassmonster tour in Minneapolis with Reid Speed, FS, and Cyberoptics. It was a Play Me records night, Nostalgia played too. It was a Play Me family bonding kind of night.
NEZ: What equipment are you using?
Jordan: We produce on Ableton and use Massive a lot. Strictly Ableton though, Ableton is the shit. At the Dirty Talk studio we have a pair of machies near field monitors, Yamaha hs80m monitors and a Yamaha subwoofer. As far as computer goes we use a 4 terabyte custom mac tower with over $5,000 in VSTs plugins including the full kimplete packs, alchemy pack etc. Two 20 inch display monitors, M Audio project mix io and M Audio 61 key axiom pro.
NEZ: What can we expect out of Dirty Talk within the next couple of months?
Jordan: We are currently in the studio working on the next EP, so be on the lookout for that. Also should have a mix coming out soon for free and releasing our track “We don’t give a fuck” that we did with our boy Oscillator Z for free as well. Keep updated on our fan page at Dirty Talk
Jordan laid down lots of original tracks and we also had the pleasure of hearing a moombah to dubstep VIP of knife party’s “internet friends”, Nero’s “crush on you” and Terravitas remix of Bassnectar’s “Upside Down”. We anticipate the release of the next EP and can’t wait to catch another Dirty Talk set!
