Michigan, Mid-November, is not exactly the warmest place in the world. Although you won’t see many people walking the streets, the club was still goin’ up, on a Tuesday, thanks to K Theory. After seeing these guys live at Electric Forest, I was blessed to be given the opportunity to meet Malcolm Anthony and Dylan Lewman, two members out of the teams trio. However before they officially got their killer set started, I was able to sit down with them and ask a couple questions.
Kyle: First off, where’s Dustin at?
Dylan: Well he’s back in the lab right now. We announced our ’25 Days of Christmas’ special, where we’re releasing a track for free everyday starting December first, and then a huge pack on Christmas, so somebody has to stay in the lab and get the beats done. I mean sometimes we have to split up, but that’s the beauty about having three people, and we just have to roll with it.
Kyle: Do you guys have any dream festivals to play at?
Dylan: Well we played Coachella which was amazing, but we really want to play at a showcase stage during a festival such as Glastonbury. It’s not a festival, but Madison Square Garden is on the top of our list as well. Lollapalooza would be cool, and Bonnaroo.
Kyle: What about Electric Daisy Carnival?
Dylan: It’s not really on the top of our priority list. We’ve done Beyond Wonderland twice now, but honestly, those shows are more party-centric, and we’re looking for something more sustainable for a music appreciation concert. I would play the show for sure if they ask, but it’s not necessarily a priority.
Kyle: So where was the last place you played at?
Dylan: Utah, which was sick. We played at Ear Milks mansion in the city who threw a Halloween Party, and I dressed up as Timothy Green. They also had a haunted house, zero-gravity dodgeball, which I still don’t even know how that works, but the kids loved it, and they were all down to party.
Kyle: So what did you think of Electric Forest?
Malcolm: One of the best concerts we’ve played at. The vibe was amazing, Dylan lost his phone driving on the golf cart, and someone just found it and turned it in, which is so odd to happen
at a four-day festival. Plus the crowd was insane, and it got us energetic as well.
Kyle: You can definitely tell how excited you all get when you perform. Not only do you rock out behind the mic, but you [Dylan] and Dustin get so energetic behind the DJ set as well,
Dylan: I mean it’s so much fun, especially since we only play our own music and remixes, and why wouldn’t we love doing that? I mean if you’re not loving what you’re doing every day, you should need to rethink what you’re doing.
Kyle: Deadmau5 said he would play a set with Paris Hilton for $2 million, what would it take for you guys?
Dylan: I mean I’d want to do a porno with her, so we would do it for the porno. We would do the Triple Team, New Trinity porno featuring Paris Hilton and Kim K could sign up too if she’s down. We’d do the soundtrack, fully produce the whole thing, direct it, and do a tour. Plus we would just stay in the Hilton, who would cover everything well. I mean just one night in Paris just isn’t enough for me…
So after we closed everything up, I waited for the clock to strike 12:30. More and more people started packing the bar, and K Theory started blasting their unique bass, mixed with Malcolm’s hype vocals. Even people that were clueless to K Theory started head bobbing once they played their Drake remix of ‘Best I Ever Had’, which instantly brought energy to the whole venue. If I had to pick my favorite track of the night, it was definitely K Theory’s remix of the Chainsmoker’s ‘Kanye’, which bangs more than any EDM song I’ve heard in a while (posted below).
It’s not everyday you find an EDM band who actually provides electricity to the crowd, instead of just standing behind the set. K Theory is one of the most energetic bands you will see perform live. Plus with 25 tracks coming between December 1st and Christmas, and an album coming in February called ‘Roller Caosters We Live On”, there’s plenty of new music coming your way. Be sure to follow K Theory on Facebook, Twitter, and Soundcloud below, because they are they chillest guys you’ll ever meet, yet they’ll perform some of the most intense music you will ever hear. Plus, be sure to catch them on their tour, dates posted here. Enjoy!
