VIDEO: Mr. Nice Guy with Die by The Sword
Our Music Director, Ben Slowey, is more than on top of the local music scene. In addition to his work for Breaking And Entering, he also hosts the Mr. Nice Guy podcast, an interview-based show that reaches out to Milwaukeeans for conversations about what motivates them. Many of these shows fittingly involve the local music scene, and we’ll be sharing some of them here as well.
Today, Ben talks with DJ and producer Connor Cogswell AKA Die By The Sword, whose most recent EP “District” dropped in March. He grew up in Homewood and New Lenox, IL but is now based in Chicago. They discussed Connor’s inception into dubstep through a Warped Tour experience, breaching the Chicago club scene, doing a live stream at The Miramar in Milwaukee, the psychological effects of quarantine, and the inspiration behind his new EP.
