It’s very brand new. Electronic music has been so popular in Europe and everything for so many years, and to me, electronic music is in its infancy in America. I look at the infancy of it and this child could develop into any kind of person. Colorado is helping shape that in a different direction. Talk about how the visual aspects tie into the musical aspects. I’m so blessed to work with so many amazing designers from all over the country. I kind of started this thing, where I would just cold call these artists and be like ‘I’m such a huge fan. Here’s my music. I feel like with your art and my music we can create this other world of shit and visually represent what I’m thinking’ A lot of those artists were very receptive of me and I’ve been very fortunate to work with all them to create all this stuff. But also on stage right now, I figured out this way, I’m using my iPad on stage to control two computers now. One of which has Ableton on it, which is my set. So everything is improvise and live every night, but that Ableton set sends MIDI signal to the second computer which controls all of the LEDs and live visuals. So basically, I’m controlling two computers, the music, and the visuals and lights on stage improvised every single night. I get to represent myself in not just a musical manner. I want to provide an experience for people when they come to my shows.

Thicke showed some skin during his performance of Blurred Lines near the beginning of Friday’s iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas perhaps more than he intended. As Thicke performed, a button on his shirt either came unbuttoned or popped off entirely, revealing the singer’s belly. What’s worse, the zipper of his pants came partway down, too.
