Parklife DJs: Wordlife On MFTV, Sydney 2012

Having recently been added to the roster for this year’s instalment of Parklife, Wordlife might be newcomers as an electronic duo, but individually, DJ/Producers Barney Kato and Adam Bozetto have been movers and shakers in the national scene for many years. We were fortunate enough to catch up with Kato, while his creative partner in crime was M.I.A to chat about all things Wordlife.

Kato explains that the project “started off as production, so we make our own music and remixes and that, but live, he plays samples and live drums over me mixing in ableton”. The pair will also be including live vocals in the folds for their Parklife performance.

Since their inception, Wordlife has prided itself on making forward-thinking club music. Kato explains how this has been both a blessing and a curse, detailing how people will sometimes totally miss the point of their music, and being “a little bit of an A-typical sound, being not weird enough, but not not weird enough” they have found some difficulty in approaching labels and other industry companies for support, though have found ample backing through their existing networks.

“We’re not trying to do it quickly, we’re trying to do it well”, the mantra held true within the Wordlife Camp. Their second release is currently in the works and you can catch their tunes both older and newer at Parklife 2012.
