Did you catch that laundry room rave? Check out our interview with its creators, #Hypemerchants

#Hype is #Hype-ing. Spec's very own Opinion/Spectrum Deputy Matteo Leibowitz leads a parallel life as a hypemerchant DJ. This morning, Bwog posted about a laundry room rave, hosted by the merchants.

We at Spectrum had the same reaction as most commenters on the bwog article: why. We then decided to take advantage of our connections to one of the hypemerchants, and we did some Q&A for all of your enjoyment. Matteo was kind enough to bring another attendee of the rave, Sam Piland.

What is #hypemerchants? What kinds of hype will you be merchanting in the future? 

ML: Legendary DJ collective. Expect many hypes in the near future.
SP: The near, far, and now future.

How many merchants are you, and how does one go about becoming a merchant?

ML: There are three of us. You don't really become a merchant---you're born one.
SP: I was not born a merchant.

What about a laundry room was so appealing? The whirring of the machines? The smell of old detergent? 

ML: Probably the unbearably high temperatures and the small space...because that's a laundry room.
SP: Because that is good. I was already there actually before they showed up.

Did anybody awkwardly try and do their laundry mid-rave?

SP: 1:55
ML: 2:42

What exactly is that arm-flapping move called at 0:33?

SP: The Slay Tor
ML: The Young Isaac Slay Tor.

Did you indeed have “Kush, drank, and bars in [that] b*tch?” or is that just like a figure of speech?

SP: Shout out DJ stank boy Rashad bang bang.
ML: You'll have to come to the next young #Room# to find out.
SP: ...!

Do you have nicknames? 

SP: I have different nicknames depending on the medium: lil SMIZE for DJing, Brown Sam for rapping, Sam for every day events.
ML: Teo is my nickname. My DJ name is Half-Chub: I have no way of explaining why this is.

According to Bwog, Teo, you sent the video 17 times. Why 17 and not 16? Or 18?

ML: I only sent it once.
SP: I sent it 16 times cos thats a boss number.

The hype-merchants are DJs of few words. They both have shows on WBAR, check out Teo's here and Sam's here. We think this Q&A has only left us with more questions.
