The Other Night: Interview

The first words that comes to your mind when you hear Inspiration, Passion, and Strength

Inspiration: Originality

Passion: Music

Strength: Honesty

Who are you? (Answer how you interpret this question)

We are The Other Night. We like video games, making and listening

to music, and we have an appreciation for the finer pizzas of the


Why do you do what you do?

It’s extremely cathartic for both of us, we love what we do and it

keeps us sane.

When did you know this is what you wanted to do, and what events led you to choose it?

We’ve always been in the music scene thanks to our fathers (both

musicians) from a very young age. Cameron plays drums, bass,

piano and PL plays guitar and drums. We started taking DJing

seriously after playing our first big house party, production was our

logical next step.

Toughest thing you had to overcome to do what you do? And what/who helped you?

Definitely sleep schedule and the fact that the music scene can

sometimes be discouraging and intimidating. Our friends and

parents are crazy supportive of what we do.

Has anyone/anything ever inspired you to become who you are (to follow your dreams)? Have you ever inspired anyone directly?

C: Porter Robinson’s album Spitfire made me want to be a DJ. Since

then my musical tastes have expanded in a huge way, and new

producers inspire me every day.

P: Music is my passion, the movement in the music scene is really

inspiring me to be more involved. Also the Soulection internet label

has inspired me immensely because of all of it’s diverse artists.

One mistake that you made in your journey? How have you learnt from them?

C: Taking it too seriously and forgetting to have fun.

P: Definitely the opposite for me, I’m not serious enough and

sometimes I can have too much fun.

We balance each other out.

Upcoming projects? Plans/goal? (about anything, if you have any)

We have a lot of new music that we’re going to release soon,

playing at the next UOttawa frosh week which is going to be hype.

Also playing at Ritual for this months Lifted event. A really

ambitious goal is to someday play a boiler room set.

What advice would you give to other people? (Just about life in general - It could be about anything)

P: Don’t force yourself to produce music, let it come naturally and

you’ll love what you’ve made so much more. Also never feel like

you have to do something because of what other people expect of

you, do whatever the fuck you want.

C: Do what you need or what makes you happy first. If you can do

that and still make other people happy, I think you’ve got it made.

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)

C: We really appreciate all the love and support we’ve been getting

from the beginning. We play things pretty lightheartedly, but the

music we make means a lot to us and it’s an incredible feeling to

know that someone else got even the smallest amount of joy or

feeling from what we made.

P: The Human Torch was denied a bank loan.
