Crank it up with VOODOO FARM

LPG plans to introduce you to new music every week. We’ll additionally work on introducing you to groups/DJs/etc that have lacrosse ties. The band of the week is a tight East coast group called VOODOO FARM.  Our friend, Liam Dirlam, was able to take time out of his busy schedule to kick some knowledge with us over the weekend.  As the DJ/Synth/Vocalist for the band, he is in charge of keeping the band’s beat on point.  What’s the lacrosse connection?  Dirlam played high school ball for a DC powerhouse a few years back in the nationally recognized WCAC.   Dive deep into the melodious oasis that is VOODOO FARM.

Lacrosse Playground: How would you describe your music?
Liam: I always describe our music simply as “Electronic Dancerock,” but if I was to relate it to the lacrosse world, it would be more like this: picture my boy Danny Glading taking a crankshot with a disco ball into the side of an active volcano… the ground violently rumbles for a few moments before the mountain suddenly begins to spew waves of Lucky Charms cereal several hundred feet into the air. That’s kinda what Voodoo Farm music is like.

LPG: Who is your biggest fan?
Liam: We have a ton of die-hard fans who come out to each of our shows and go bonkers… but I can hear my roommate blasting our album in his room right now, so I’ll give that award to him. He also goes out of his way to bring a ton of beautiful vixens to each show– and the only thing cooler than groupies, is the dude who supplies them.

LPG: Word is that Hip Hop mogul, Damon Dash, is working with you. What is his relationship with VooDoo Farm?
Liam: Yeah, Dame was the reason Sean and I dropped everything we were doing and moved to NYC a little while ago. He really believes in our talent, chemistry, and work ethic… but he’s also the type of dude that really pushes you to fight for the things you want. Dame is not just into handing people things- he’s going to put you to the test daily and see if you are able to come out on top. He has become a great friend and mentor to us… but at the same time, he is also our coach. We do everything in our power to let him know that we came to play- and we came to win.

LPG: Has DC metropolitan lax had any influence on your music/lifestyle?
Liam: I am the only member of Voodoo Farm that played DC lacrosse… but most people don’t know that Dame was also a bit of a lax-stud back in his day. He played longpole defense and I was a short-stick d-middie. He has a few sticks at his house, so we toss the ball around sometimes and talk a little trash to each other. But we both hung up the cleats awhile ago in favor of the music industry… so I doubt you’ll see me taking him to the rack anytime soon.

Look out for future underground favorites on LPG next week.

In 2009, Adam O’Neill, Harry Alford and Thomas Alford launched Lacrosse Playground as the preeminent site for lacrosse gearheads. For years Lacrosse Playground provided lacrosse fans with tutorials and tips on how to string a lacrosse head, up-close looks at the gear the top players used and sneak peeks at equipment and uniforms before they were released. More than 10 years and millions of visits later, Lacrosse Playground has relaunched with a focus on storytelling. Our mission is to provide comprehensive coverage of the latest lacrosse news, share insights into the sports betting and fantasy lacrosse world and showcase the lifestyles and personalities of the sport of lacrosse through articles, videos and podcasts.
