Christian The Lion Glitch Dick (CTLGD) is a dubstep / electro mastermind from Honolulu, Hawaii. We’ve featured him on the site before and now we’re bringing you a brief conversation with him for our not so weekly interview sessions. If you check out his soundcloud page you’ll find his library of impressive tracks and sets, all of which are pleasant to the ear drum. His most recent track is featured below, followed by my favorite track by him (for obvious reasons – it’s DnB). Be sure to check both the tracks out as you read up on our lighthearted, humility filled interview with the man himself.
OK ok, one more
GMS: How / when / etc. did you get started producing?
CTLGD: I started as an engineer, then dj, then producer
GMS: I first discovered you under the name GLITCHDICK, and then found christian the lion, and now CTLGD? What’s the story behind all that?
CTLGD: I’m not good with that name thing, i really don’t care too much anymore haha
if people find me they find me if not oh well
GMS: How have you evolved as an artist?
CTLGD: I guess sonically i hope I’ve gotten better haha
sheesh idk though, every time someone tells me they miss my old sound
makes me feel like I’m just trying to hard and I’m just hipster runoff
GMS: How has your progress been? How long did it take to gain a following for your music?
CTLGD: ummmm sheesh idk how to answer this one hahahaha
GMS: What do you think the future holds, goals?
CLTGD: I hope to one day own a bakery and a farm
GMS: If you could collaborate with one artist, who would it be?
CTLGD: lmfao, party rock anthem is awesome, so is shots, i just want to sell out and die
GMS: The “Crew Love” remix you did, was that just an experiment or do you think you will begin to add more DnB elements to your songs in the future? Did you enjoy making it / the final product?
CTLGD: I love DnB more than any other genre of EDM, I just suck at making it, that’s why I keep all my shittyness to Dubstep and Electro.
GMS: By following your Twitter, it seems as though you have a son? He looks like your best friend and an awesome kid! Has he inspired you, changed your aspirations, anything?
CTLGD: Riley is the best!!!! But I do not recommend anyone having kids until they are married and very finacially stable it is a very large challenge for both me and his mother since we are young.
GMS: What’s your personal life like? hobbies? sports? anything?
CTLGD: I like to garden, growing veggies is my forte.
GMS: Being from Hawaii, what’s the EDM scene like out there, I know the scene on the west coast and east coast is different, where do you think Hawaii stands? Although technology facilitates so much, do you think it’s difficult to break out as an artist in the main land, being from Hawaii?
CTLGD: It’s cool, spend sometime in LA and Arizona, love my phoenix family.
GMS: Any plans to tour the U.S.?
CTLGD: I wrapped up a 10 city tour with skybox studios in January, that was awesome bigup to Austin Weeks for bringing a shitbag like me out to play all those shows.
