If there is one artist who completely embodies the term "renaissance man", it's the Miami-cum-LA producer/artist, Jack Splash. Long hot on the "Sir Jack tip" since hearing a few demos early last year, a proper sit-down with the dude who makes me hit play, and repeat, more often than not was a chance to get into the mind of a true millennial master.
Oft-compared to a hybrid lovechild of Prince and Outkast, Splash is not shy to show his passion and dedication to his impressive collection of works, most of which he's dished out for free in anticipation of his full length album, Technology and Love Might Save Us All. Let's dive in and, yep, make a splash with super cool and cordial dude.
SB: Since we’ve been going back and forth on Twitter, I figured why not do a proper interview and help spread the word a little bit more?
JS: Cool, I really appreciate that. Your real name is Hannah?
SB: Yeah, it’s Hannah. Sheena Beaston is just the name of the site, but I’ve answered to Sheena many times before, so whatever works is totally cool.
JS: That’s cool. That’s rock and roll, I dig it.
SB: Absolutely. So where are you based at right now?
JS: I’m in Miami right now.
SB: Oh, so you’re missing out on all the snow and the fun going on up here in the Northeast.
JS: Oh my goodness, I’m not a huge snow person anyways
SB: Dude, I am not either...I hate it! My office even shut down today.
JS: That’s madness. I don’t think I’ve ever been…I mean, I’ve been in the snow, but not in the middle of the city. You know what I mean?
SB: Yeah, exactly. It’s just a hassle to trudge through the city in these conditions so it’s kind of nice to just stay home and watch movies all day, which is so out of the norm for me.
JS: That’s the best time for some hot cocoa
