THE HUDSON PROJECT: Bro Safari On Growing Up Punk And Performing Drunk

Bro Safari (D. SKANK PHOTOGRAPHY)

“Growing up, personally I was a full on punk kid; the leather jacket, the boots, bracelets and everything. The first band I ever listened to, period, was the Dead Kennedys.”

If you’re a fan of trappy, bass-driven hip-hop and electronic music, chances are good that you’ve heard of Bro Safari. If you’re fortunate, you’ve been able to witness him perform live. Also known as one third of the drum ‘n’ bass group Evol Intent, Nick Weiller has taken stage all around the world.

At Day 1 of the inaugural Hudson Project in Saugerties, NY, we sat down with Weiller to discuss his festival performance. After noticing the use of the Misfits logo in some of his live graphics, we had to discuss his punk rock influences growing up.

We discussed his upcoming ‘Blackout Tour’ as well as the ‘Animal House Tour,’ both of which are expected to be filled with nights of debauchery and dancing.

Check below to see the first time Derek UTG or Bro Safari have ever witnessed a horse walk by mid-interview.
