A lot’s happened since DJ Nobody and Niki Randa debuted their psychedelic duo Blank Blue. For one thing, it’s gone from being a sample-based side project to a full-on band featuring drummer Andres Renteria and bassist/arranger Brian Akio Martinez. Randa and DJ Nobody have also logged a lot of hours on other records, from the former’s critically acclaimed Flying Lotus collabs to the latter’s ever-evolving solo efforts.
Musically speaking, we wrote that song in 11 (for all the math nerds). I was reading a few books by theoretical physicist Michio Kaku. He insists the multiverse cannot exist beyond 11 dimensions without collapsing back into 11. The song just poured out.
I recommend checking out Kaku’s theory on Cosmic Music… very inspiring.
