In his latest mash of Missy miss demeanor Elliot with Brainfeeder signed Samiyam, Duncan only reaffirms his ability and unknowably large knowledge of music. Time is all it will take for us to see the artist signed and on the tip of everyone’s tongue.

Oct 21. Video Premier: Douster – Violento feat. El Senor Teki Latex
Main Course Records have been a fixture in the Blogshere this year. Three industry savy compadres pumping the internet full of new and free music. We had the opportunity to support.
If your a Soundcloud Hound, someone who invests hours of their day into the site and search for music, you’ve come across Duncan Gerow. He resides in Anchorage Alaska, USA, is a Soundcloud Hound’s wet dream, and makes truly absorbing music. Otherwise, little is know about the prolific artist. In the interview you are about to read we talk, Alaska, music (goals and alike), and the mix he has provided here today. Get to know then be a friend.
Lead us with an introduction. Who is Duncan Gerow?
I have 2 middle names (a bonus name) and those are them. My name’s Sam. I’m 28, from Anchorage, AK
How’s Alaska living?
It’s a really beautiful place.
I feel like a lot of people (including myself) think that you are snowed in 365 and just make music. Your output is certainly in support of this theory. Can you clarify how much time you spend making music?
Oh tons, Ive been at it for a few years so it really adds up. I definitely do it more now than I used to because its awesome to me that people are liking what I’m putting out. I try to play on an instrument every day though.
How many pairs of mittens do you own?
Zero. Gloves – U need those fingers man
Do you have other interests? I know you are also an illustrator.
Art, hiking, college football, playing music (keys, bass + guitar). I think electric guitar can be the most fun to play but overall I like keys best. Like a nice Rhodes or somethin.
It’s a cliché question, but what inspires you? Creatively in general let’s say.
As far as making blends, hearing a really good beat. Sometimes I’ll think of a certain rapper or singers style that would compliment it – happens a lot while driving. It can also happen the opposite way where I’ll hear an acapella and think of producers that would fit the songs vibe. But in terms of playing original music or just sitting and drawing its way harder to describe. Creatively just in general its inspiring to see how much amazing stuff is out there and so easily accessible.
You feelin any labels lately? / What are your favourite sources for new music?
Brainfeeder is my shit. Soulection, HW&W, Stones Throw, TDE, WeDidIt.
+ sources definitely soundcloud, bandcamp, other artists’ mixes. Kutmah’s sketchbook radio show always has tons of good new stuff. I love NTS radio and Dublab.
Seems like you’ve been getting good attentions from good people (Soulection, looking at you). Have you been getting offers that you can speak of?
It’s been great. Nothing too crazy, a few “if you’re ever down here come play a set” type things. But I’m collaborating with some super talented people from all over the world on music projects which is the best part. Stay tuned.
What are your future goals with your music?
Im working on a bandcamp EP of original stuff. Trying to set up some dates on the west coast next year DJing and ultimately I want to do a hip hop/ r&b live instruments kind of thing, where we play originals and covers. It’s crazy fun playing with a band.
What’s the band called and who’s innit with you?
No set band or anything but I know people who play. Just as a future goal I mean.
What west coast cities would you like to hit?
Def Portland, the Bay Area, maybe LA or Seattle.
Tell us about the mix you have provided.
Different from other stuff I have up. More atmospheric / zone-out kind of thing from some really phenomenal artists.
