As the Gaga album was created predominately outside of this studio Garibay explains how they had to stay ahead of the curve.
“Researching music and equipment played a big role on making the Born This Way album – there was a lot of homework done on my part and everyone else’s part and that’s what it takes to stay ahead. We didn’t want to adapt the tradition in the music industry to mimic or use the coolest DJs to make records they have already made before with new top-lines for Pop artists… In this case we’ve always been underground DJs and performers, we were just making new records.
“Whiteshadow and myself would be out DJing in whatever city we were in, whenever we possibly could. It kept us fresh and motivated when we’d be running low on creative fuel. You get instant feedback with DJing, especially internationally – it kept us on the right track for sure.”
