Lifeless Bodyweight is the deathstep task of Chicago primarily based Jackson Iturbide that stands for intense catharsis and against self-harm and harming others. With beats and 808s in the vein of Skrillex and Maurauda, strength impressed by Slipknot, and vocals encouraged by Napalm Demise, Dead Body weight fuses the models of dubstep and demise metallic to unleash an ominous aggression that bids you to permit your emotions run wild and recognize how alive you truly are. Somewhat than damage on your own or other individuals, Ollie (as he goes by when the make-up goes on) invitations admirers to permit their rage out to Useless Pounds, reminding them that there is no rainbow without the need of the rain.
He not long ago produced a blistering new solitary titled “Convulsing” that is unbelievably electrifying. He fuses together spine chilling vocals with thunderous bass and greatly distorted guitars in a wondrous way, solidifying it as a legitimate head banging anthem.
We experienced a possibility to talk to Dead Bodyweight a couple inquiries about his challenge and this solitary. Delight in and hear to “Convulsing” under!
“When no just one is there for you, songs is there for you, and I’m there for you.” Exactly where did this information arrive from and what does it necessarily mean to you?
It usually means that you are never by yourself if you have music. If you have spouse and children, marriage, mental wellness or own issues you can look for refuge in tunes, and particularly in Useless Pounds, because the audio flows from the struggles of daily life and fights back against them, and Olli–the character/purpose I just take with the corpse paint and as I execute, is non-binary, and intended to be relatable to anyone. Olli is extra of a function than an identification, everyone can be Olli or be Olli for another person else. Olli will generally be there for you with open arms.
As for where it came from–I truly stated it in organic dialogue striving to describe the undertaking to somebody and did not know it at the time. My supervisor (Thomas Bridges) overheard it and thought it nailed the meaning of the task so he wrote it down. We have made a decision to set it on a hooded sweatshirt that we will be releasing soon, with the protocol of supplying all of the profits to a charity (we haven’t made the decision nevertheless but are in discussion with a several non-financial gain businesses, but we are open to collaboration with anybody if the match is proper).
When did you get into electronic songs? When did you notice you wished to fuse really hard rock and dubstep collectively?
I got into digital tunes all over the age of 14-15. Just like a lot of others it was Skrillex and Kill The Sound that kick started me into this EDM environment. From listening to the pure authenticity of Skrillex’s new music and the whole throttled seem design from Destroy The Sound I was hooked on the whole scene like it was crack.
I never ever experienced this crazy epiphany about fusing the two genres collectively. I guess it started off way again when I was obtaining into significant new music. I beloved the rush and the reduction I received through and right after a large music. Not singling it down to significant steel either, just large new music in basic, songs that tends to make you want to burn off the earth although it is hitting your eardrums. From that it had an unconscious affect on my producing style. So, you could say I unintentionally fused these two genres together just purely because I’d attempt to compose what I wanted to hear. Hoping to be sincere with my generation and my reliable self.
Who are a number of artists you look up to correct now both as artists and also at spreading positive messages like yours?
A couple artists that are grabbing my focus appropriate now are King Yosef and Nanoo. King Yosef is this “industrial sounding” Hip-Hop Artist (I place quotations there for the reason that I’m not seriously certain How to explain his new music). Nanoo is this forward pondering producer that ranges from Significant Dubstep, Experimental Bass and Property. He’s so numerous and makes me try to be a greater producer.
As for artist/brand names I glance up to for spreading positivity in the scene would have to be OWSLA. Even although they are nonetheless on their painfully prolonged hiatus, OWSLA does one thing special and distinct that unifies all these distinct sounds with the similar strength. They just continue to keep it fresh, keeping actual, and preserving it correct. That is what OWSLA does.
What is in store for the rest of the calendar year/following year for you?
For the relaxation of the yr I have a lot of tunes releases: singles, collabs and probably even a entire duration EP if everybody is up for it. Plenty of reveals planned for the relaxation of the year and beginning 2023.
Just know that you may possibly not know who/what Useless Body weight is presently, and that is alright, But for these upcoming several years you will not be equipped to get rid of me. I’m in this for daily life.
