We all know that the music industry tends to come with a lot of politics. Now more than ever with social media at the fingertips of every person in America. However, some brands like us here at Trillvo try to promote the community, focus on the art, and that is exactly what Madhatter and his new collective SOCI are all about.
If you are from Texas there is a good possibility you have heard the name Madhatter, and if you haven’t you need to jump on the bandwagon. His real name is Brett and he is visionary with a very long history with music. He plays two instruments, produces, DJs, and even lays down the vocals. He is a leading man with the Good Vibes Presents promotion company, and also the founder of the new SOCI collective, scheduled to be launched Jan. 27th. As if that isn’t impressive enough, he is also scheduled to start a three week, eleven shows, #MadFamily tour.
It was so nice getting to sit down with my videographer Victoria and Madhatter. Before the interview, we sat around talking, and it was so nice hearing his perspective on the industry. He also shared with us what he was wanting to achieve by starting SOCI, and how he hopes to make a name for the Texas EDM market. You can really tell that sharing the art, and other aspects of the industry are what is important to him and it is refreshing to meet someone with such passion for the music beyond the money, but for the art itself.
If you’re not familiar with the name Madhatter you will have plenty of opportunities in 2018. Between his tour, being featured on the SOCI’s new compilation EP (dropping soon), his tour, and he just dropped an exclusive mix on the Trillvo Soundcloud and it is FIRE! Even better, I got to sit down with Madhatter for an interview. I had the honor to ask all about his 2018 projects, what he hopes to accomplish, and what it was like playing MiddleLands 2017. Check out the interview below and also make sure you check out his hour-long Trillvo mix exclusively on the Trillvo Soundcloud.
…And just remember we didn’t name him one of our 2018 Producers to Watch article for nothing!
