EDM Sauce: Who was your favorite artist/group growing up?
Protohype: Growing up, my favorite group was Weezer.
EDM Sauce: What’s it like being signed to one of the largest growing Record Labels, Firepower records?
Protohype: It’s fucking awesome. Datsik was a lot of the main reason I got into producing electronic music anyways, so it’s cool to have it go full circle. It’s a dream come true, it’s awesome.
EDM Sauce: You developed a style of music some call dub-hop, what makes it so unique?
Protohype: Well I started doing the dub-hop thing before there was trap, so now people get it confused with trap. It’s pretty much just dubstep with hip-hop influences.
EDM Sauce: What was it like working with 12th Planet?
Protohype: It was dope. 12th Planet is like one of my best friends, so we like hang out all the time anyways. So we just started making music together and we knocked out three tracks in a couple of days, so it was dope.
