Disco Donnie Presents is calling upon a fresh pair of faces for the newest episode of “Offstage.” Today, we reveal the feature artists as none other than Canadian duo Botnek. For their “Offstage” debut, the charismatic pairing of Botnek, aka Eric and Gordon, take turns interviewing each other. They invite audiences to get to know their story on a personal level as they provide the story of their first interaction, which was sparked by their common knowledge of Ableton. “Kids are like ‘ah I’m just going to use a preset; I’m just going to use that.’ It’s like no, try and recreate those sounds yourself because, you know, learning how to do it when you’re like ‘oh I have an idea,’ you can just do it really quickly.”
