Night Slugs Artist MORRI$ Talks Tacos and Defines "Goombawave"
Your sound is self-described as "goombawave." How would you define that?
My good friend Maal A Goomba of Bear Club long ago described a "goomba" as a "nigga in nature," and that's definitely a term I've come to endear. In Lawrence I'm within fifteen minutes in any direction out in nature, and it lends itself to an introspective moodiness that you can find in me and Tom Richman's music. In addition to that, being in the middle of the United States is a collection of a bunch of different influences: Southern rap, West Coast/Bay Area vibe, East Coast hip hop and we cant forget the Chicago vibes...all of those come together in the middle and form the goombawave. It was just our attempt to reconcile all those influences.
Anything in particular you are looking forward to in St. Louis? Any favorite spots of yours?
I've been playing cooler and cooler venues. The last time I came out I played Blank Space, and I thought that was awesome. Really, really like Swedlife, so I might do an in-store when I'm in town. You can definitely come check me out there, whether I'm DJing or not. Whats the name of that Mexican spot on Cherokee?
Yeah, that spot. You can find me there. I will be there as much as I possibly can. I fuck with that place.
