It verges on tiresome to list the number of idiosyncrasies which have come to define the public persona of New York-based producer Zomby, but "elusive" and "outspoken" are easily at the top of his seeming character traits. As he's more interested to mouth-off on Twitter than he is to engage in a proper interview, XLR8R was unable to talk with the artist in preparation for our Deep Inside feature on his brand-new With Love album for 4AD, but now, a Q&A with Zomby has surfaced which was actually conducted in person. The piece appeared today over on Pitchfork, and features an introduction almost as long as the conversation itself. But those opening paragraphs tell the understandably frustrating—not to mention interesting—story of actually having to track down Zomby, which helps give a useful bit of context to the following questions about UK dance music, anonymity, fashion, nostalgia, With Love, and more.
