Realboy on Paying Off Bouncers, Being the New Kids, and Starting Our House Records

Your college experience might have comprised of beer bongs and waking up in unknown places, but for Realboy members Austin Jacobsen and Daniel Gomez, it went something along the lines of opening for acts like Dada Life and starting a record label. Still toddlers when rave culture began to take off and electronic music hit the mainstream, Realboy represents a generation of DJs who do not view records and turntables as a necessary rite of passage, who use software like Ableton Live or Serato for their mixing and production. All Shook Down chatted with the boys about meeting when they were 17, starting their own label, and playing with SebastiAn this Saturday at Mezzanine and headlining tonight at Milk Bar.
