My guest this week is Dan Deacon, the Baltimore-based electronic musician/composer. Dan is one of my oldest friends in this music world, and we’ve clocked many miles on the road together.
We talk about discovering the DIY underground and how he feels that it saved his life. We discuss how coming to Baltimore as an outsider allowed him to ignore the scene’s rules and create a more inclusive environment. He told me how he’s recently learned to rid himself of an addiction to stress and to enjoy the fruits of his labor.
