KT: Well, well, well...The elusive BlackDroog. Thank you for finally agreeing to meet with us. You aren't really a big fan of the media are you?
BD: [No Response]
KT: This is quite a unique house. Is this your home?
BD: I spend some time here every now and then. It's a good place for thinking. It's possible it's haunted but I haven't had any problems yet.
KT: So...Tell us a little about you. Where are you from?
KT: Excuse me? You have to be from somewhere...right?
BD: That's the name of the town. Nowhere, USA.
KT: Oh...pardon me. I'm not familiar with that area. You are somewhat of an eccentric musician. And, to be clear, I use the term "eccentric" in the most flattering way possible. Your music doesn't sound like anything else we’ve ever heard. What musicians inspire and influenced your unique sound?
BD: The RZA, Alchemist, DJ Muggs, Portishead, John Coltrane, Amon Tobin, Mobb Deep, The Apocalypse Now Soundtrack and Marvin Gaye. Also a lot of Science Fiction movie scores, electronics, the stars...and early 90s hip hop in general.
KT: That is an impressive list. Do you care to elaborate on any of that?
[Editor's NOTE: At this point in the interview, there was a brief moment of uncomfortable silence while Kelly and BlackDroog both stared at each other waiting for the other to talk.]
KT: You recently released a video depicting a situation on the moon. Can you explain exactly what happened there?
BD: [Visually uncomfortable] I am unable to disclose all of the details of what may or may not have occurred on the Moon but let me just say...I will be back and things will be a lot different the next time.
KT: I see. That experience on the Moon is what inspired your new Album, The Pineal Suite?
BD: Yeah. Partly. That whole experience changed the way I saw the world...in a good way. It felt like my third eye opened, you know? Everything was clearer and brighter. I was able to see and hear things that I couldn’t before. It was wild. So I wanted to represent my experience musically. To capture that feeling and translate it into an audio form. That is basically what the album represents.
