I woke up Autograf‘s Mikul and Louis from a nap when I met then at the hotel. In fact they asked for another quick 15 minutes of sleep before we chatted.
Chicago indie dance band Autograf is three guys: Mikul Wing, Louis Kha and Jake Carpenter. Autograf started as an art collective modeled after Andy Warhol‘s legendary New York Factory scene. While working on art installations, Autograf made a few bootleg remixes (including 50 Cent, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder and the Temptations) to fuel parties at their Future Factory space. These remixes became incredibly popular and soon offical remixes followed which eventually led to Autograf releasing original material.
Louis and Mikul were still groggy and disoriented when I woke them up the second time, but we had a great chat. How did an art collective become a dance act? What does the band mean when they tell each other to “bask like a lizard?” We start with the most important question: If Autograf is three guys, and Louis and Mikul get the two beds in the Autograf hotel room, where does the third man sleep? Listen to our chat.

Here’s the extended version of my hang session with Autograf so you can hear all the stuff that won’t fit into radio length. Listen!
What a mashup to wake up to. On one hand, RRodd‘s mashup of Justin Timberlake’s “Suit & Tie” plus Marvin Gaye’s “Let’s Get It On” definitely cures the Monday blues, but it also makes me want to get back into bed and…put the bed to good use, if you know what I mean. Wink wink, nudge nudge *bwow-wow-wow-woooowww*. Listen to the version with Jay-Z’s verse here, if you feel so inclined (although the version below sans rap works just fine for me).
