Kevin Yost Live in NYC

Kevin Yost Kevin Yost just recently performed his new live act in NYC for Strangelove Events.

Read all about his new setup in the interview and enjoy the extremely well received music from Gallery Bar, New York

You have recently debuted your live act, and we had the pleasure of hearing you absolutely ROCK one of these live sets at Gallery Bar in NYC for the Strangelove event in March. Tell us a little about what your live setup consists of and how this is different from your DJ sets.
My set up consists of Ableton Live, Akai MPK 49 controller keyboard and an Akai APC 40 controller. I set up a template where I have my drum kits, vst sounds and a few disco loops all at my finger tips. I start fresh for each set and create drum loops, bassline and chords as I go. It can be very challenging because you just can’t grab a song and drop it in there if the vibe is not right. I actually have to create the vibe from nothing and make it work. Im not really there to perform as much as I am to make the people dance. Its very different from djing because you are basically naked up there and have to fend for yourself and convince the people to groove to what your creating live. I love the challenge and I hope people dig what im trying to do which is give them something unique and fresh for each show. Djng is less challenging for me because I have been doing it so long and playing pre recorded music, matching the beats and tweaking the eq has become routine. Don’t get me wrong I love djing but I just feel like I can give more creatively to the people.
