Nautiluss600

Nautiluss is Graham Bertie. Having found a lot of success with his  involvement with Thunderheist, and Bassanovva, Graham has been performing as Nautiluss for a relatively short amount of time. Merging elements of house and techno with smooth bass energy, Nautiluss is moody and sexy – a perfect way to end Supercrawl.

If you’re planning to attend the electronic showcase on Saturday night, don’t be fashionably late, as that space has a capacity and there is a good chance it will fill up.

Catch Nautiluss at Supercrawl at the electronic music stage on Saturday night. 10:30pm Supercrawl Electronic Stage Presented By Redbull

Q –  We are really excited to have you play Supercrawl this year. What is the
first thing that pops into your mind when you hear the word “HAMILTON”?
Junior Boys.

Q –  Where are you most likely to be spotted at a music festival? (gallery,
Food trucks, beer tent, on some plush grass, in a café, music venue, by a
stage, side walk, back alley, etc etc)
Wherever the good music is (and snacks)!

Q – What is the best thing your parents listened to when you were growing up?
My dad had a cassette copy of Herbie Hancock’s Future Shock and would rinse it whenever we were in the car. I distinctly remember hearing GrandMixer D.ST scratching on “Rockit” and wondering what the hell that sound was and why I liked it so much!

Q – What’s your favourite rap song?
That’s a really tough question! I listened to a ton of east coast NY rap growing up.  I guess I’ll go with M.O.P – Ante Up. Favourite rap albums would be either Enter The Wu Tang or Liquid Swords.

Q –  Do you ever listen to a song and think, ‘Damn, that’s perfection. I wish
I could have worked on that’? What is that song?
Sebastien Tellier – La Ritournelle comes to mind. Total perfection.

Q –  What is the most inspiring, or most memorable, show you’ve ever attended?
Prince at Metropolis in Montreal in 2011, easily.  Intimate venue, 4 1/2 hours with a funk-era emphasis musically with like 5 encores. Best night of my life!

Q – What’s your idea of the perfect day off?
No phone/internet access and preferably in nature.

Q –  What inspires you to make music?
It varies from day to day but things that have inspired me include books, music, movies, photography, architecture, fashion design, dreams, philosophy, historic events, colors, sculptures, industrial design, youtube and even a randomized subject on wikipedia.

Q –  What is the last thing that crosses your mind before you get on stage?
Am I wearing pants?

Q –  What are you listening to a lot this week? Can you recommend a track
for us to check out?
I’ve been listening to Jessy Lanza‘s new album NON STOP. A future classic and actually perfect.Check out: Jessy Lanza – 5785021

Q –  What’s the best thing you did all summer?
I collaborated with a seriously talented upcoming female artist from Chicago and I think it’s one of the best songs I’ve ever made!

Q –  What do you hope to be doing a year from now?
Being happy. Producing and working with artists I admire. Releasing my first solo album.  Spending winter somewhere hot. Buying a cabin in the woods/mountains and spending a lot of time writing music there. Going back to Japan.

Thanks, Graham!
