Sines: Sinjin Hawke, oOoOO, Dj Screw (RIP)
TD: If you could get together with one (or a few) artist to sit down and work out a track; who might that be?
Sines: I would say oOoOO from Tri Angle Records. I dig his work completely. He fits every aspect of music,genre into his tunes.
TD: You slow and throw all kinds of tunes, everything from Boys II Men to T.I., is there one in particular type of tune that you really enjoy crafting?
Sines: Anything with female vocals. I love how the slowing down of the music makes their voices sound.
TD: Seeing that you’re from Texas, how is the kind of music you make accepted by crowds up there, seen as chopped and screwed music came from down around there?
Sines: People love it but you always have those haters. Just keeps me thriving to succeed more.
