EXCLUSIVE: PLS&TY Tells All Ahead Of Moonrise Festival Performance [Interview]

PLS&TY has dominated this year with amazing, diverse singles like “Good Vibes”, which featured Cosmos & Creature, and his tribal bass summer anthem “Run Wild”. The young producer has amassed millions of plays across dozens of remixes of artists like Fergie, Outkast, XYLØ, Opia, Elephante, and more, and collaborations alongside MOONZz, Autolaser, and Bobby Saint. His originals have seen remixes by fellow producers Xan Griffin, Gill Chang, Jupe and more, all which have led to qualifying PLS&TY as one of the best new artists to emerge and hit the spotlight. In anticipation of his upcoming performance at this weekend’s Moonrise Festival, we’ve talked to PLS&TY exclusively about his upcoming news, his breakthrough into stardom and more. Read our interview below and be on the lookout for more PLS&TY originals and remixes later this year.

 

For readers who may not know you as well, can you tell us a little about yourself?

PLS&TY: I am a music producer and DJ fortunate enough to have discovered the world of electronic dance music and the artists that keep it alive, involving myself in a community of hard-working individuals traveling the world to perform for crowds chanting their names. I have received support from industry greats, signed major record label deals before even reaching my 21st birthday, and toured places some can only fantasize about. My music has amassed tens of millions of plays, garnered significant following across social media platforms, made its way into television commercials, and granted me opportunities for working alongside top studio engineers and producers. Such opportunities have only enhanced my capability of collaborating with and accepting all individuals, provided me with a foundation to establish lifelong relationships, and granted me access to see the awe-inspiring marvels that our world contains because of simple yet paramount items in my life: a DJ mixer and laptop computer.
You started off with a lot of bootleg remixes and quickly began releasing official remixes and your own originals. How has your music evolved over the past year? 
Precisely in just this way. I started with bootleg remixes and later found myself being asked to complete official remix work for high-profile artists. Thereafter, I moved to release my own singles/originals. Throughout the course of all of this, my music progressed substantially. Now more than ever before, I find that I am creating for myself and am less concerned about how others will react. I directly create what feels right in the moment.
You’ve had a pretty massive year. What have been your highlights of 2017?
– Releasing “Good Vibes” & “Run Wild” (which both have fantastic news that will be made known soon)
– Embarking on the “Good Vibes” Tour
– Completing more Official Remix work for artists I love
– Earning 3 More Hype Machine #1’s – 10 total now- Performing at Electric Forest Festival
– Completing my guest mix for Arty’s Together FM Radio show on Sirius XM
– Selling out of the first PLS&TY merch run (although limited hoodies are still available!)+ much more
You also have Moonrise Festival coming up. What can festival goers expect from your set?
My set will feature a ton of my favorite songs at the moment, and of course your favorite PLS&TY tracks. But of course, the only absolute way to find out is to attend! See you there.
What has been your favorite show to date and why?
One of the most memorable nights out transpired during phase two of my Good Vibes tour. All was going as expected, until I sat down for dinner in Minneapolis with the promoters from Skyway Theater, where I would later be performing with Illenium and Said the Sky. After engaging them in conversation, I would come to find out that the location of the show was not in the smaller, upstairs portion of the venue (the Loft), but the show was actually being held in the main room, which holds a capacity of 2,500 people. The news was incredibly surprising, considering show time was in less than two hours and the venue had announced all tickets were sold out. Surely, it will remain as one of the most memorable nights of the tour and one of my favorite places to perform yet!
Which artists are on your list for dream collaborations?
Ellie Goulding, AlunaGeorge, Gallant, Lido
Who are some of your favorite artists this year?
Mura Masa, Lido, Louis Futon, Crywolf – all have released fantastic new music
Can you give us any hints as to what you have in store for the rest of the year?
I signed a major deal earlier this year, and we are currently working on the first of my projects with them. I can’t wait to share the news with all of you, & I tremendously appreciate your patience.
