Zero Warnings’ affection for the synth driven sounds of Achilles The Conqueror isn’t uncommon around this part of the bay. Stylish dressed to the nines in a leather jacket with his hair pulled back, there is a likely chance that while you’re out on the town you might personally run into The Conqueror and be receive a copy of Alpha, his latest project.
Recently we had the opportunity to talk to the CEO and killer composer at 79 Sorcery. He opened up about his recent collaborations, 79 Sorcery in 2017 and ultimately wanting to see Tampa win.
SC: Good night out on the town?
A: Hanging out with the homies. Drinking, smoking, hanging out, and live music always. Going out to events. Every event I can get to I try to get to.
SC: Favorite place for live music?
SC: Worst Job experience?
A: Some restaurant. I won’t drop the name on it but they were pretty bad. I’ve done roofing in Miami and that was bad but nothing like the restaurant with customers and stuff.
SC: Favorite cartoon as a kid?
A: Ren and Stimpy.
SC: How did you get into music?
A: I was raised with it. Everybody in my family, It kind of trickles down. From my grandparents to my uncle who taught me how to play guitar and got me into music in the first place.
SC: What was the first song you learn on the guitar?
A: Umm….I think it was The Beautiful People by Marilyn Manson
SC: If you could collaborate with any local artist who would it be?
A: I’ve already done that with Prince Golden.
SC: How did you guys link up for that track?
A: I was getting this album together, I was doing a real synthesizer stranger things type of beat and he was talking about how he wanted to do a track with a stranger things type beat. I had one laying around and I just talked to him. He was in for it %100.
SC: If you could have any strange superpower, what would it be?
A: Strange? Mmhm that a good one. I guess if I could turn into solid gold.
