"A lot of my songs are created to have a specific magical reaction. If it works, it punctures a hole in reality. It’s an alternate universe that you can peer through."

When I meet Cass McCombs’, at the discreet Epitaph Records building on a corner of Sunset Blvd in Silver Lake, there is no glamorous shield. The Northern California-native sat in a dimly lit, plain conference lounge in front of shelves of albums from icons like Tom Waits and Nick Cave.

Afrojack talks music, moments, and the importance of being gone

"My grandma helps me also. She's 83. Usually if she doesn't like I song I make, it's probably not right."

Learning to forget isn’t that torturous of a process. Especially for Afrojack. He’s generally a happy man who makes happy music. Simple, right?
