012 - Masala Kids

CC & Daniel Vincent (Masala Kids)

What’s up Danny! Tell us a little bit about yourself. 

Yoyoyoyo. I’m an Austril-Indian man that grew up in Oceanic continent.

What have you got in the works at the moment?

A bit of this and a bit of that hey. I just moved house. My backyard is like a jungle so I’m getting my green thumb on, haha.

You’ve had a hand in a lot of different creative projects over the years, what were some of your personal favourites?

Woodfolk events were definitely some of the most nostalgic memories! The last few years I have been diving into the music realm which has been an amazing experience. I went to Nepal in 2019 and locked myself in an Airbnb and just made beats with my SP404, which some other tourists thought was so random but I loved it. Not one hike… hahah

You held an amazing intimate art show at your house a few moons ago, give us the rundown on how this came about?

Me and my homie Indigo fell deep into the painting rabbit hole during peak covid lockdown; which is weird to say but it was the best creative push for us being locked in our beautiful house.

Over a few months we just started stacking paintings, filling up our lounge room and then decided we wanted to showcase it all for our friends in this weird time of life. We thought it might put a few smiles on people’s faces and thankfully it did!

We certainly had such a fun time! We managed to get some beer sponsors so that was sweet as well. Our other roommate Marcus just released his album for Anders & Edgar so we had a little listening party on the night which was absolutely beautiful!

What’s been happening on the music side of things for you lately?

I’ve been working on some projects here and there with friends. I’ve have met a lot of good people recently who make similar music to me. This has been so refreshing because I didn’t really know there was much of a scene for the music I make and listen to.

After releasing my recent album DARLEEN on Spotify, I have taken a step back and been on the listening music train. I’ve just been digging for records and stacking up my collection, while just actively listening to albums from start to finish. It’s something that I’d never really done to be honest (thanks to Spotify) hahah.
