Since producing under the moniker NastyNasty in 2008, Jasper has been encouraging his fans to get weird on the dance floor. NastyNasty is not afraid to experiment with genres and brings a fresh perspective to the electronic scene with his changing palette of grimey dirty synth sounds and syncopated rhythms. NastyNasty will be performing his third Emissions Festival this year, which is being held in Belden, CA from May 17th-19th. This festival is being put on by Camp Questionmark and Irie Cartel, and its West Coast Bass Culture is exemplified through its talented lineup and bass-head fans. This event is right around the corner, and will feature headliners like: DJ Shadow, The Polish Ambassador, Phutureprimitive, Kill Paris, and more. With their stacked 2nd phase lineup, and a community focused on people, music, and sustainable festivities, the vibes from Emissions Festival will make you want to come back time and time again. Make sure to check out NastyNasty’s newest sounds below, and his telling artist interview. Also see him getting weird at this years Emissions Festival, because his set is bound to be a doozie.

For those who may not be familiar with your sounds, how would you describe them?
What makes you so NastyNasty?
The time in my life when i started NastyNasty was probably one of the lowest points in my life, freshly coming out of the experimental/noise/breakcore scene i was a dirty, smelly mess of a human. On top of that i was making songs about off color topics like fat west oakland prostitutes, serial killers and prison gangs. The cherry on top was that I’ve always been a massive pervert and i guess the combination of all those things just felt like NastyNasty was the most appropriate and honest name i could choose for myself.
What kind of vibes are you expecting from your next Emissions Festival?
What highlights can you remember from last year’s Emissions?
My dude Starkey dropped a ton of dope grime as always and i had some beignet with like marshmallow and chocolate or something it was amazing.
How do you feel like West Coast Bass Culture is different than, lets say, East Coast Bass Culture?
How did you begin to develop your unique and eclectic sounds, like your mentalist-hyphy off LAZERBRAIN for instance?
How has your sound transformed since you first started producing?
What’s next for NastyNasty?
More learning, more experimenting and more music! I stayed back from releasing alot of music in 2012 because i was storing up for an album and sadly in early 2013 i lost the hard drive that contained most of the album, I’ve been leaking the unfinished ones on my soundcloud over the last few weeks but at home i’ve been extremely busy working on a new album that i’d like to come out in the fall. I’ve taken a step back from trying to produce bangers and gone back to a more experimental aesthetic. I basically took a solid look at all the music i’ve made and released and realized that at my best i make weird kids feel less alone because i myself am a weird kid and it shows in alot of my music.
