Over at the revamped Wax Poetics website, you can check out an interview with Dan The Automator (you know, Dr. Octagon, Handsome Boy Modeling School, Deltron 3030, Lovage, etc.). Mr. Automator shares his thoughts on the Solesides crew, long-time friend DJ Shadow and his shelved solo album. Link

Wax Poetics: Well, after all these collaborations and projects—will there ever be a Dan the Automator solo project like A Better Tomorrow?
Automator: Ha! There already is. I was unfortunately signed to MCA, who signed me to a solo deal. But then they pulled because the label was being ran by someone who didn’t know what the fuck he was doing. I think it’s a solid record, but now it’s a little out dated. There are a lot of great guests and surprises on it too. Everyone’s gonna have to wait. I’ve been fucking waiting forever. I have the basic foundations, but now I have to touch it up more. It’s frustrating, but it’ll have its time one day.
