#ReUpThursdays Independent Artist Feature: M. F.'s fish of water

Click to Re-up

  AD: I’m here with Alex McMahon, aka malachi fawley's fish of water. Whats up!   M: Nice joint, haha, thanks!   AD: This has been one of my good homies from Seattle. He’s really showed me the way, and we've made a lot of great art together.   AD: How would you explain your art?   M: Basically a product of temporal influences, what I'm listening to at the time, the past, and what I’m capable of playing. It ends up being a lot of rock 'cause that’s what I listened to when I was younger, and it’s what I try to play (I hope). Then some psychedelic sounds and a lot of heavy electronic, bass, and percussion because that’s what I’m listening to right now, that's what happening right now.   AD: I feel that completely. It's good to stay relevant and then also put your spin on the music. That's what I like about your sound. You take a lot of aspects from other genres and then put them together.   AD: What’s your reason for making art?   M: Well for a long time, when I was younger, I had this ideal for myself of what I wanted to be and it was really self-interested. Then as we all do, I went into that dark point in life and then stopped really caring about who I was in this idealistic way and really considered who I was in the world and what I was considered. That way I do it for the general benefit for other people and what I can give to others, but if I were doing it for myself it wouldn't be enough, I wouldn't have the motivation. There are people who are going to tell you that you do too much but then there are other people who will feel something and want to be inspired.   AD: It’s really great that you say that because I was thinking about why i'm still in the music industry the other day and it’s because it’s for the people. I want people to get the right message and enjoy good music.   AD: Tell us a little bit about losing your laptop?   M: It sucked because it had my entire set with all of my tracks on it and they were the project files with ableton, so I was able to take out certain tracks and then play something live instrumentally, but I could no longer do it with those songs. I had a show a month and a half later that I had to get ready for and luckily I had my friend Ian help me out. It was great because I had a blank slate and i’d been wanting that because art is a very important part of my identity. I needed that, we all need that every once and a while, a tabula rasa, a new place to start over, become someone new, who you want to be at that time.   AD: What are your influences?   M: A lot of Trap and EDM artists that I hear my friends playing all day long. It's a lot but it gets in there cause it’s so strong--so really heavy lyricists like Fredo Santana really get to your head.   AD: It’s actually a guilty pleasure of mine haha.   M: A lot of people tell me they hear Beck, The Beatles, The Doors. When I was younger I would just listen to a lot of artists on repeat. That was how I listened to music or I’d listen to a single album a lot and then i'd listen to someone else and their sounds kind of crept into my music.   AD: I think it's important to have influences in your music that you can build off of, not copy but use their structure to learn.   M: It’s like being a student of theirs. They didn't talk to you directly but they taught you, from listening, learning, contemplating…   AD: Smoking a lot of weed.   AD: What's the craziest thing that's ever happened to you at a festival?   M: Ahh… Coachella.   M: I was living in San Francisco at the time and I had access to really good acid. I got in contact with a girl who sold me a few strips and she said it was really good stuff. I asked her how long it lasted and when i'll come down… she said “I don’t know, I never come down”. It came to about the second day and I decided to take two tabs, felt really good. For some reason I wanted to trip harder and I took two more. My friends who were with me weren't...well I wish they had told me to not take more haha. So I took more. Everything started to get really intense. It was a world of colors, kind of like BL Visuals, basically a world of color. AD: That sounds like a pretty insane festival experience man. Great sitting down to talk to you!
