Final Words w/ Opiuo: a brief conversation with the electronic DJ and producer
Hello ladies and gentleman (and everyone in between), welcome to another fun-filled installment of the world's most favorite online interview adventure game dubbed "Final Word[s]" — where Rooster Magaine asks artists/comedians/politicians (hell even the neighborhood garbage man if we could get ahold of him) a series of questions relating to "lasts" and "finals" until they're blue in the neck.
Today's guest is Australia-based electronic DJ and producer Opiuo; a man that likes to make his fans' hips sway and fists pump ever-so-wildly in the air. Soon he'll be embarking on a tour in support of his most recent release Syzygy 01. What's best, is the tour will bring him — along with special guests — to the lauded Red Rocks Amphitheatre on April 21, a special live performance accompanied by the 20-piece "Syzygy Orchestra."
Here's what he had to say.
The last thing I ate:
"Mushroom, Pepper & Truffle Pasta."
The last thing I regret eating:
"Too much sushi."
The last dog I pet was named:
What I want etched on my tombstone:
"All Aboard The Rocket Ship!"
The last time I said "I love you":
If it was my last day on earth, I'd…
"Be with my closest family and friends and sky dive into a wild party on a beach."
The last time I had a McRib:
The last thing that goes through my mind before taking the stage:
"The first songs melody I have to play and 'Have fun, take risks.'"
The last time I gave up:
"I can’t remember ever truly giving up. Just adjust and make it work."
The last best piece of advice someone gave you:
"To relax. Everything will work out eventually in its own way."
The last thing I do getting ready in the morning is:
"Contemplate a second coffee."
What I want my fans to take away from live shows:
"To be transported out of reality and into the land of bass heavy funkified freedom town."
Any lasting words of advice for readers:
"You’re the only version of yourself that will ever exist. Every dream you have is totally possible, it might require compromise and time to get there, but do not give up."
