Chance is an aspiring music creator, current laborer at an oil refinery, and an all-around great dude. He was in town visiting family for the holidays and we were able to get some in the studio. We talk about Chance’s experiences in California, his rising music career, and a bunch of other good stuff. This guy’s energy is electric. An amazing conversation was had, and some good laughs to top it off. This is a must-listen.

Mike Proctor 2:28
Oh, yeah, dude. So we’ll get you some swag for for doing the show today to make up for swag for doing the show. So yeah, good double dip. Like if we get chance I’ll trick down. So for people that don’t know you, man, give us like, you know, your background, what you’re doing what you’re up to stuff like that, like, well,
I went to Byron from first grade I graduated, okay. And I always had an interest in music. But it was so hard to get three different people in a group with the same mindset. So, come around here 2000 like 1516 I went down to Detroit. A buddy showed me this. like crazy dubstep rave type style. Okay. And I was like, Alright, this is what I want to do. Wait, how old were you said 15. No. 2000 Oh, 2015 Yeah, shit. That would be young. And then I was like, Alright, I like this because it’s all on myself. Only I got no one but myself to blame if I fail. And it’s gone. Pretty good. finally starting to catch some steam. So
Mike Proctor 3:47
you started creating your own?
Yeah. Yeah, house music and techno and like dance music. Okay, like funky bass lines.
Mike Proctor 3:57
Yeah, it’s awesome, man. So let’s I want to dive right into the not really that famous treatment. Um, because we’re probably gonna end up back on this subject like we like we always do. So when you were growing up as a young man. Mm hmm. And you just told me you were born in California?
Mike Proctor 4:12
I didn’t know that. So where is Martinez?
It’s like, probably like 40 minutes away from San Francisco.
Mike Proctor 4:19
Like North? Oh, yeah. North north of San Francisco and San Francisco’s way down at the bottom. No.
goes up top. Oh, really? Yeah. alleys down by the bottom. Gotcha.
Mike Proctor 4:31
Okay. Um, so and then you moved out to old Byron here.
Yeah, buddy. It was the best thing that could happen when you
Mike Proctor 4:38
were young man. Growing up. The first thing you can remember, you know, when you were just a young, young as young as you can remember, what did you want to be when you grew up? Like what? You know what I mean? Where was your sort of vision, your mindset
bound? Well, honestly, I really, I think the only thing I remember other than being a musician is a I wrote down on wanting to be an ambulance driver. Yeah. When I was like, four or five, I’m like, What is this? Why did I write that? Don’t tell us I think and like in school? Yeah. Like they didn’t like that. Yeah, they had us write down what we wanted to be when we’re older. And I wrote down ambulance and you remember that?
Yeah. Well, I
had the picture. You still have the picture now? Probably. It’s somewhere. But you had it for Yeah, I remember that. Because I was like, What the hell I do not want to be that. Much respect to him, but
without a doubt. Yeah.
Mike Proctor 5:34
So when, how and how old? were you when you really got into music?
Oh, shit. Probably. I remember when I was like six years old, you know, Mississippi King by mountain. I made a made a remix called Mississippi queen. And I just went with it on the guitar, and just made some lyric. Wait, I
Mike Proctor 5:53
think I’m thinking of Mississippi queen. Oh, I
think you I think you’re flipping around. Yeah.
Mike Proctor 6:01
okay. I was just making sure
yeah, you’re right. Um,
you can play that on a guitar.
No, it’s more like, you know, being okay. I got the lyrics are based. But
Mike Proctor 6:10
you were you had created your own song like lyrics. Yeah. You
went off on a tangent? Yeah, yeah. Yeah. How old? Were you at that point? I was like, six, seven.
Mike Proctor 6:24
You remember that shit?
Yeah. I just that was like the earliest moment where I was like, This is awesome. Yeah, it was fun. It was
Mike Proctor 6:33
Yeah, for kid all hopped up on endorphins.
So when you were, but you know, when you were. It started getting into music and stuff. Like,
out how and why?
Well, I really started getting into the music of my mom bought me a drum set when I was in sixth grade. Nice. Yeah, it was so awesome. That was probably so cool. Dude. She was so supportive, too. Like she didn’t care how late I played. She just like, yeah, I envy your mom. Yeah, so
that’s like one of those mom’s one of the big things. Yeah, the drum set. Yeah, I know. Some family relationships.
Mike Proctor 7:12
And neighbor relations. Yeah,
that’s a cool thing. Because we lived in like, the boonies. Well, my neighbor was my grandpa. And then our next neighbor to the side was a farmer, the virgin? I don’t know if you know. Yeah,
Mike Proctor 7:24
yeah, I know that. You were again guys were from we have listeners, like all over the world. Little tiny little rural town in Michigan. Yeah, we just all know each other. That’s just how it goes. That’s probably true for like,
a lot of small towns. Oh, definitely. Definitely. I’m
Mike Proctor 7:41
sure it’s all the same sort of dynamic.
It’s a good dynamic, though, I think. Yeah, like, Bro, I feel like if a bigger city just totally changes. how you treat people I don’t know a little more shady. Probably How big is where you live? now. I actually kind of live in like a town stuck in time is kind of small. But I cross the bridge for my cousin’s live and, you know, their classes like 2000 people
Mike Proctor 8:08
like that small. Oh, they’re like in school high school class.
Yeah, I know. I’m like, bro, would you graduate? It
was I think I was one of the bigger classes we had. 98 and Byron, like 90. Yeah. My grade I had 100. And some.
I don’t think 100 Yeah,
three digits is huge.
Did you know everybody
Mike Proctor 8:30
knew every single person, every one of them. I can still remember the name. Okay, so. So you’re super into music? You’ve got a drum set. Right? How much did you explore that? You were kind of talking about how it’s hard to get people together.
Oh yeah. Dustin Blom? I don’t know if you guys remember him.
Mike Proctor 8:50
Yeah, I know. It’s a tough one.
He but he was a migraine and his family just was like, head over heels drum sets everywhere. They have such a nice drum set. And then his dad was a basis across all metal music. So that’s how I started out just like drum dilemma God and slipknot and just like, the heavy shit and how old were you? I was Middle School up until eighth grade. And then I stopped hanging out with him. I started smoking weed.
Mike Proctor 9:24
But that didn’t accentuate your
oh it did it did for sure. Oh, but it was a it did and then you know I kind of like I was in high school band until my junior year.
Mike Proctor 9:36
And okay, so you went to high school band route
to hey, yeah, yo, and the drummer guy. He was like, tapping on the table trying He’s like, I don’t know if you’re good enough to be a drummer. And he was such a dick about
Mike Proctor 9:50
like, like your teacher. Yeah, in
like fifth grade. He’s like hobo the trombone. I’m like fuck out of here. I want to be that
I was I played trombone. I play trombone.
I do want to though,
I want to be in band. I wanted to be in band and I thought the trombone was a pretty cool instrument, I guess. But yeah,
it’s a good nice low end. Yeah,
yeah, I sucked. Like I had no drive. It was the guests one. Yeah, you had Really? I mean, I wasn’t I sucked at it. I sucked it. I did not apply myself either. But
yeah, I should have said tuba or
Mike Proctor 10:30
Yeah, but no, and yeah, that was like a nice little backhanded. Yeah,
Mike Proctor 10:39
so it’s okay, because I didn’t play shit. Although the drum set is something that I’ve never played one like, I never got to bang out on some drums. And like, for a while, and just kind of bang out. I feel like I’d be okay at it because I used to rip the rock band drum. Yeah,
Yeah, you know,
Mike Proctor 11:00
I got rid of that shit. So I you know, I think I could do it. I think I can figure it out.
That’s the cool thing about a rock band drum set is like it’s pretty much the same thing kind of translate Yeah, it’s not like Guitar Hero.
Mike Proctor 11:12
It was just having that conversation was it was it Cameron I think so. Yeah,
cuz he Yeah, cuz he had bought a guitar when they were talking
Mike Proctor 11:19
about the money that’s that’s awesome man though so you were you were pounding and pounding drums in school and fucking This was you know your your shit? Yeah. Um, when did you go to the to the to the found that what is EDM? Basically?
Yeah, yeah, you
Mike Proctor 11:36
can call it like when did is that insulting? No, no.
Well, it’s kind of like house music and techno is kind of like the oh geez of the dance music. Because then you got like, it just evolved obviously. Like, Yes, it does. And then they just put EDM on it. But
Mike Proctor 11:52
yeah, it is a dance. That is sort of the style, I guess. So techno would probably be the more relatable term for people that don’t really
know that we can just see idioms fine.
Mike Proctor 12:01
So, so I’ll settle for that. Yeah.
When did you again come into that?
Like, how old were you? I was probably like 2122 so this is after
Mike Proctor 12:15
school and all that you know, after you had had graduated or
just lost in the Abyss trying to figure everything out where and when did you go back to California? Like were you out in California when you know, I even moved out to California like a year ago. Oh, nice. Yeah. Okay.
Mike Proctor 12:32
So yeah, when you found that niche what what what was it about it that you were also into?
It was just like everyone dancing like no one cared who was watching like the beats and yeah, feel in the end everyone using like, this could just go nuts. Yeah, everyone, like everyone’s so cool. And like, there’s like pretty much like some subculture cuz like, my first time i was a I was on some Miley, and then I was just like, hyped up as hell. And the one guy he has some, like, fancy gloves. And then I was like, hopping up and down. So it was like glows glow on his gloves or something.
Mike Proctor 13:09
Yeah, black light.
Yeah, well, kinda Is it like flashes really quick and they can change color real quick. Yeah. And then he was just like, he settled me down. And then he’s like, No, no, let me do it to you. And just like, oh,
Mike Proctor 13:22
shit, okay. For people that are listening. Chances putting on a show. And it was probably so fucking trippy.
Yeah, no, I’m
Mike Proctor 13:32
just calling me down, bro. Yeah, call me down.
It was it was pretty crazy. But the reason why I got out of the dubstep scene was because I just felt like, it just was a competition on who can get fucked up the most. And I’m like, Yeah, I used to be like that, but I’m like, I just want to groove and dance. Yeah,
Mike Proctor 13:53
no, that’s awesome, man. Um, I think that’s a fucking excellent point, though. things sometimes do especially in that direction. I’ve never been one that resonated with like, who can get the most fucked up at that shit. Never. I was never gonna know I was got way to fuck up. No, bro. I’m not the best. I’m not I really want to be but I’m not. But that’s that’s some wise shit there, brother. Oh, thank you. So So when you say like house music? What? What is that? What it like
it was a club in Chicago called the warehouse. And they were just mixing songs together. And then they coined it house music. And then you know, progress and the winner over the UK in the UK came out with acid house and then it’s a lot bigger over in other countries, but I feel like it’s a lot. It’s coming up here because like I hear it on the radio now.
Mike Proctor 14:51
So like the fall on the floor beat when like, um, it’s like a specific genre.
Yeah, it’s like four on the floor. tu tu tu tu it’s, it’s it’s pretty much like that steady drumbeat got you and then you just lay down some funky baseline some crazy sense. And
Mike Proctor 15:09
so are you just kind of having fun? Is it more of like a freestyle type of
thing? Like when I’m mixing or Yeah, like, yeah, like, Well, no, I like to I like to have like, a, like a set prepared. I tried to do freestyle and I was just like, chit, chit chit, what do I do next? We’re next.
There’s only like when you’re doing a show. Yeah,
Mike Proctor 15:30
yeah. But it’s kind of so when you say house music is just kind of, like more of a mood setting. House vibe. Like, it’s not like a like, what I mean, is just people are just flowing like, Yeah, what it is you just use flow, do your thing. And it’s just kind of a constant. Like,
yeah, it’s constant. There’s no like,
Mike Proctor 15:52
I feel what you’re laying down.
Yeah. It’s described as a style of high tempo electronic dance music. And it says that originated in Chicago with the the warehouse and all that, buddy.
Mike Proctor 16:05
The Google said.
Mike Proctor 16:11
Yeah, that’s awesome, man. So you, you you. How long has this been your Michigan?
Shit? Probably like four or five years. So when you were when you first kind of came in 2025 right now? We’re done. Yeah. So 21 years old. And so are you creating? Oh, yeah. Yeah, for sure. That’s awesome, man. Yeah. And then Mike next school is I just need to get on get one of my tracks on a record label. And then that will kind of like give me some reputation. Yeah, yeah. That ability. Yeah, exactly. And then, you know, then I’ll be at the club. And then they’ll be like, Oh, he’s on this guy’s this. Yeah.
Mike Proctor 16:48
So yeah, yeah. I mean, that’s very true. You almost don’t even need that. But it certainly does grant you that. Yeah. You know,
you’re right. Because I could just draw my own tracks at the club. Yeah, man. I
Mike Proctor 16:59
mean, like, you can have him on the internet. You can do whatever the fuck you want. You know what I mean? Like, you put that shit on YouTube. I need your you know, your gold.
What is like? We’ve had some other people who play music on here, like, what’s your creative process with it? I’m, like, sit down at home and the quiet. That always is that always. I always wonder because I play music. Not to your extent, but but,
uh, yeah, I usually just, I lay down a drumbeat. And then I just mess around with some baselines.
And I’m like, okay, that’s fine. Start getting a feel for it. Yeah.
And then I bring in some chords, and I just layer it up after that. And then I just, like, start dissecting it and moving around and making a whole track out of it and changing.
Mike Proctor 17:43
Yeah, exactly. Going. You do so you know, you often going back to rerecord different pieces to
Yeah, I try not to Yeah, I try to like, finish most of it in one sitting because I hate to like, go back and work on something unless it’s like something I really love if you’re
in a different mindset. And when you go back to try to redo it, it might, you might totally alter it. Right, right. Yeah, no,
Mike Proctor 18:08
I love that point here. I love that point. Because when I’m certainly there’s certainly a part where I need to you do have to kind of step away and come back and reevaluate things. I feel like that’s whenever I come to like a problem. A lot of times I need to just give it time. But in so in this particular sort of niche, you when you’re in that moment, like if you’re feeling something, you really don’t want to come out of what the zone as
yeah. Oh, yeah, right. Well, yeah, let’s call it the zone. So you get your goosebumps and you’re like, Oh, yeah, yeah, this is gonna be good. Yeah. And then that’s all I’m trying to do is just translate what I’m feeling when I make the song and hopefully somebody feels the same way. And then that I think I’ve done a little call. There’s a couple people that like it, but I still need to work on making it clean or so much cleaner. The mixing, mastering and I’m still a newbie, I’m gonna do you have your shit up online and stuff? Yeah, I’m gonna I’m gonna check it. Check it out a lot more. All right, James actually was just in town. It was like, Hey, bro.
Mike Proctor 19:12
I’d love to come on the pod. Fuck Yeah, dude, let’s go. And it’s been Christmas. So like, I’d like to usually I’ll check your shit out before I write. But I did. I was listening one day. I
think you’re doing like a live stream or something. Oh, yeah. Yeah.
Mike Proctor 19:27
And I had popped in for a second but um, I don’t even remember what I was doing or what it was.
Yeah. I mean to to somebody who doesn’t like that kind of music. It’s kind of like, repetitive as fuck,
Mike Proctor 19:38
man. It’s a it’s a nice like, I
don’t know, it’s about liking. It’s just being familiar with it. Right. You know,
Mike Proctor 19:45
in about your thing about you know, you have a couple people. You know how many people have even attempted to here? Yeah,
yeah, you’re right. No, it’s
Mike Proctor 19:51
like something with the show. You know, we’re growing so much like since we started this, I mean, now we got this giant fucking studio. And these dope ass avatars and You know in we used to be on a pop up table in the corner we taught we talked about this a little pop up table storage over here, man, it’s crazy like that, you know? This is that’s perfect. Yeah, it isn’t it, isn’t it? It is the linings nice, you know? Yeah. But um, uh, you know, like it with the show, like, you know, we don’t even know how many people have attempted to hear it yet know if they like it or not. You don’t even fuck you know what I mean? You don’t even know. Yeah, man. I get that shit on the internet. So you get some analytics, then you’ll know, right?
Get it on? Let us know and we’ll share it and oh, yeah,
Mike Proctor 20:39
I got I got it on Spotify and Oh, yeah. Nice. That’s awesome. I don’t know what you guys um, so So when you’re when you’re playing all every piece of it though yourself every piece of your you know your music.
Oh, yeah. You can play guitar. You can play drums. Oh, okay. Now do you do a lot of a synthesizer? You do. Oh, right. Right. Yeah. So.
Mike Proctor 21:00
So are you? What’s that? Like? Like?
It’s very complicated at first. Yeah, like a bunch of goggles. Yeah, right. Uh, you’re right, you’re 100% and then once you know like, what, what does your like you can almost you can’t get there until you experiment. Yeah, Eva. Yeah, that was like the biggest, biggest Hill.
Mike Proctor 21:19
So what describe what a synthesizer you know, it’s just like a piano, like, yeah,
pretty much and it just modulates a basic sound wave, like a triangle where you’ve got a bunch of different settings and you just kind of play around with them. Yeah, usually start out with like a basic sine wave. And then I just make it into like a nice smooth bass. And then,
Mike Proctor 21:40
so do you know piano? Aha,
I wish so much easier. I guess I have this cool thing called Ableton push where it just puts all the notes that I want in the scale. Yep.
Mike Proctor 21:52
And I just do so you use Ableton? Yeah, yeah. Yeah.
I used to use FL I don’t know if you’re familiar. fl studio.
Mike Proctor 22:00
No, no, no. Yeah, I use a Reaper I’ve ever used. I’ve heard of Reaper have Reapers, very good. It’s not as good as Ableton, like as far as that. But it’s more customizable. You can do a lot with it. So you know, you can use it for music and podcast or you know, whatever. Whatever you want to use it for. Mmm. That’s fucked. That’s fucking cool, though. Man. So you just kind of playing around grooving? Yeah, and put your shit out. Dude, that’s
I love that. Yes,
that’s, uh, that’s what I do now. Oh, yeah. So, um,
I’m sorry to interrupt you. I just looked up. You said we’re classifying it as EDM, even though it’s house music. We’re classifying as EDM. There’s 1.5 billion listeners in the world. That’s a third, third most popular music genre.
rapping the first and
I’m find that out right now.
Mike Proctor 22:50
Yeah, dude, that’s a big shift. Yeah, um, a lot of people do it. And it’s bigger than just getting fucked up.
Mike Proctor 22:59
it’s way bigger than that. It’s all kinds of people. Everything’s kind of starting to mold. You got all this shit and popular music to know. So?
Like, I feel like you got to have a dance track on your album now. Like, at least I know Lady Gaga. I know. But she she’d be having those she was before the time to shoot had some dance track. Yeah, back in like 2008. Now, um,
Mike Proctor 23:21
I was actually so we started a newsletter recently and I wrote about or I had read the story and included it in the newsletter. And it was about how music creators now are they kind of shifting their focus to try to get on like Tick Tock and make like shorter catchy or dancey or songs to you know, get featured on tik tok and then should go viral or whatever, because that’s all we listen to now.
So it happens man, you go viral and you’re good. Yeah. Pop number one. Rock number number two uprising.
EDM house music. Then you got soundtracks hip hop, rap. And then just singer songwriter just kind of scales down from there. But yeah, pop number wagon. Battle for metal is way down there. 919 percent. Yep.
Oh, excuse me. Yeah, that’s a that’s an interesting shit though, man.
Mike Proctor 24:16
So yeah, we uh, is that did you? Have you got any stats on I guess? What would you classify your DJ? Really? That’s really what you do, dude. Yeah, DJ is a production we’ve gone down this road. I was gonna
say I think this this is one that’s really tough to because the quantified because you have a low end of it. Where the DJs make next to nothing are practically donating their time all the way up to people who are making what was the one guy’s name makes just who’s like the most popular DJ? Who’s the guy?
Oh, yeah, he made he’s a millionaire. Okay, and I’d like to know there’s but we
Mike Proctor 24:50
also found that there come from a lot of unique places like have you ever been to Utah? I have not like I think it was Salt Lake City. Salt Lake City was like one of the biggest areas Or just like music production in general? Really? It was very, it was very strange when we were like, Oh,
you look like you How do we how do we figure that out? I
Mike Proctor 25:08
remember someone Someone had wanted to go down this path before. I think we usually like just explore it was. Everybody likes to be TV?
I think it was. Yeah, it was t equals t. But Oh, yeah. Stevie Oh, he’s made $30 million. So
yeah. And he says he’s legit. He’s like, I know what I’m doing. I go in there, I’ll make a track and I bang it out. You know, I’m like Jesus Christ. Like, good for me. Dude. You’re doing it right.
Yeah, fourth, and he’s the fourth highest paid DJ.
Mike Proctor 25:37
So that’s not even what you really do, though, right? Well, not.
I mean, that’s what you want to do. That’s it, though. Like, I would just be fine with just playing like some warehouse venues and just making enough money playing my own music. Yeah. And being before the bills. That’s the goal, right? Yeah. I just I don’t want to I don’t need to be one of those frickin crazy, guys. But that’d be cool. For sure. Yeah.
Mike Proctor 26:03
So what are you doing to pay the bills? I work at the oil refinery. You work at an oil refinery. Dude, that’s we were talking about this. Yeah,
I blew my mind when that text came through. Oral friends. Damn.
Mike Proctor 26:16
what’s that like?
It’s a pretty laid back for the most part Really? kind of intimidating at first though, because you know, you got your walkie talkie calling in the operator asking questions. And then getting your permit to make sure it’s safe to work. And then climbing like 300 foot frickin water towers or Yeah, colker unit fucking bonkers. You do that? Yeah. And then I go in and I just test the flanges and the valves. Make sure that it’s not leaking. I’m gonna so
Mike Proctor 26:47
you do like, maintenance type of stuff. Yeah,
yeah, yeah. Yeah, but I don’t actually fix it. I just find it. But yeah, that’s pretty much and then I worked three twelves which is amazing. And complain about them, bang them out, hang them out, and then relax and work on music and then go to the club on the weekend.
That’s awesome, man. You just climb in these towers like all day long. Like climb up test this test that test that climb back down. Go to the next 104
Mike Proctor 27:12
controls this tower?
Oh, dude, shit, dude. It’s fucking high.
Mike Proctor 27:18
What are you climbing up?
What am I climbing a ladder? Like?
Mike Proctor 27:21
Yeah, like, shoot fucking ladder?
Yeah, exactly. With like a metal cage. And then sometimes it’s like rotting. And I’m like off.
Mike Proctor 27:29
You give me the heebie jeebies.
I know. He does it. He’s like, freaked out. And he’s still doing it.
Yeah. Gotta get the job done, baby.
That is crazy. How
Mike Proctor 27:39
did you find yourself
doing this? Uh, well, my my family. The night house is actually a long line of oil refinery workers. Yeah. My grandpa was a welder. And then my uncle was a I don’t know, he was some pitch in the administrative office. And then my cousin works down in the maintenance warehouse.
Mike Proctor 28:04
So you got in on referral? Yeah, exactly.
So do they do like a lot of jobs that I I’ve had, like, you know, you have to do your interview and do little tests and like, do they have you go up and like, look at it. Like, we’ve climbed that mug?
A year, but that was after I like do my drug test and get stuck in testing. So I’m like, you know, fuck, why did they why
Mike Proctor 28:26
you were like already in it. So yeah, I was like, I guess I’m climbing.
I guess I’m climbing it today.
Mike Proctor 28:30
I’m doing I’m climbing that bitch. Yeah, I’m afraid of heights now.
Oh, but they do say they’re like, if you feel uncomfortable. You don’t have to do it. But on second hand, they’re like, get this shit done, dude. Yeah. Like if you ain’t gonna climb you don’t have
to do it. But you better do it better.
Mike Proctor 28:45
Find someone that’s good. Oh my gosh, real?
Is there a side of scamming and treat? Is there like a harness? Like a little clip?
Are you just wrong? Yeah, free climbing. The only protection is like the metal metal ring around you. how’s
that gonna do?
It’s gonna catch your legs. So you don’t? You’re not gonna fall our butt. Oh, but your leg will get caught and then you’ll go.
Mike Proctor 29:08
Yeah, your leg will be broke. Yeah, it
happened before some like 400 pound guy. frickin slip fall leg got stuck in there and just had amputated off. Yeah. And then everyone’s like donating money on, like, at lunch for him. Unless like, that’s so
bad. That’s horrible. was he doing climbing those at that way?
Good question, man.
And how did he climb it that way? is another good question. I feel like
Mike Proctor 29:33
so is this complex offshore?
No, it’s onshore we get we get like freights coming in from all over the world. It’s like we got some like crazy signs saying like, you can be searched at any time. And I’m like, Oh, God, I don’t have anything. Scary. Yeah. International Trade waters. I’m like, Yeah,
Mike Proctor 29:59
that’s great. Though
yeah I got really lucky.
Mike Proctor 30:02
it’s a pretty good job
yeah a pretty well yeah it does and I got I got a pay for a mortgage to that I got frickin handed down to me because my dad and grandpa passed away so then I put the fucking house so you got the house but that’s what helped me out so much. Is that where you live in? Yeah, I’m going to sell that pitch though. And like cuz I’m just trying to live in an apartment and Ria stress just pay my 100 bucks a month and my utility you got a you got a house given to you in California though. I know it’s pretty Yeah, it’s so nice on the hill and like you can see the bridge and every time I come visit you, bro Yeah. I’m telling I would love cuz I feel like everybody, no matter what your political views are California is fucking beautiful. Oh, man. I
Mike Proctor 30:52
don’t care. But yeah, I have our political views. Well, I
know some people least my own family, but it’s there’s a lot more republicans than you think. Oh, this is like anywhere, right? Yeah, Tom seems like
Mike Proctor 31:05
it just depends on where you fucking go. Yeah. What’s all that shit? Finally, you know, dying down a little bit? Yeah. Good. Well, I’m
100% down to come hang out with you in California, man. Amazing.
Mike Proctor 31:16
I definitely want to see California for sure. Um, that’s fucking cool, though, man. Uh, you know. I was gonna ask a fun question. I forgot what my question was. I think it was about Kevin. It was about oil refinery. So yeah. So do you work for a company? Yeah,
I’m contracted your contract. Yeah.
Mike Proctor 31:33
So you’re your own? You got a you get a 1099 you gotta
get your own taxes. No, not like that. Think. Okay, well, you
Mike Proctor 31:41
must work for a company that’s contracted. Yeah,
yeah. God, that would suck. Got you ever done that before? Well, I
Mike Proctor 31:47
had heard Yeah, I have, um, it sucks. That’s my worst night. But honestly, it’s, it’s the way you got to do it. Yeah. That’s how you really, if you want to make the money. Yeah, that way you you get paid before the government does? That’s, that’s kind of nice. Yeah, you know, you can pay them three times a year, whatever, four times a year. Um, I was I had read this thing that a lot of oil workers are there I was, I listened to it on my podcast, um, their contractors. And so they typically this is I think pertains to a lot of people who work out offshore. Okay, so they’re typically contracted because the company doesn’t want to employ them. So they get the workers go out there. And they just get paid a fat stack. And the the idea on the podcast was a business idea. There’s this website that does all your, like accounting, and you can get benefits and just kind of manages your work income or you,
for people 99 right.
Mike Proctor 32:45
So that you know, you’re not getting typically Alright, so yeah, so typically, you know, these guys are out here on business fucking majors, like they don’t know, you know, half the, you know, shit, like me, give me a wrench. And I know I need money. So you know, um, and we’ll figure all that out so they can get kind of hosed out by the government a little bit too. If you think about it. Probably, you know, if they don’t know what they’re doing. Because that’s a fucking whole complicated bunch of bullshit.
But yeah, that’s that’s why I asked if you were you know, if you were like your own contractor, or if you know thing. Yeah, that just sounds like another headache. But you got to do it, though.
Mike Proctor 33:19
Sounds like you’re living the dream, though. Bruh. Little bit.
I mean, trying to pick up some let’s do
Mike Proctor 33:26
that’s what matters. Yeah. Are you making progress? Like, yeah,
that’s about time. gravy. Yeah. Thank you. And then yeah, and then the club owners and all the DJs there. And they like, they respect me and everything. So yeah, that’s how they always are giving me like to awesome, great relationship. Exactly. And like making me not feel like a POS. Which is awesome.
The crowds the play to like, how many people are in it? Oh,
we’ll see. When we first started up. We could have people in there and started out like, you know, yeah, think about that. Think about so it’s a live streams, but for the first three weeks, we went there. It was like 12 people then was like 20 people and then it was like 30 people in the third week. And like the third week, I’m like, Damn, dude, like in bigger. Yeah. And it’s awesome. Yeah, that got cut short, but 2020 what
cut what cut a short
Oh, man, I totally totally forgot for like, a couple minutes there. I was living in a pandemic.
That’s how you get in the bunker.
Mike Proctor 34:30
Yeah, that’s from being on the pod. Yeah, that fucking sucks. But Amy, you know, I got the opportunity. That’s, you’re building another you’re building another very possible avenue that you probably needed to explore anyways, which was the online platform. So right, true that Yeah, you know, it’s if anything, there’s there’s silver lining. I mean, um, yeah, that’s fucking sweet though. Man. what’s the what’s the name of the club that you’re in? You know, we’re a couple of clubs that you that you pop at Broadway, Broadway. Where’s it at?
It’s in Walnut Creek, Walnut Creek, California.
Yeah, it’s like in this kind of the D town, but they’re the only club that plays house music in the East Bay. And so it’s like, That’s fucking golden. Yeah. It was like, it kind of worked out. So
Mike Proctor 35:19
well. Yeah, that’s awesome. Um, okay, so I’m very curious. I like to give like to dive into the kind of lifestyle stuff of what you do and how you’re doing it. So how do you eat and how do I how is your diet? Is your diet pretty good? especially being out in California? Because Do you eat a lot of fast food? Do you cook at home a lot? Do you? You know what I mean? Shit, bro.
like garbage? Yeah, I suck. Dude. It’s horrible. It’s
Mike Proctor 35:48
It’s so hard, dude. And then it’s just like, yeah. Then you then you step on the scale. And you’re like, you piece of shit. Yeah, yeah.
Mike Proctor 36:03
But so if you’re with Oh, what’s this?
This is this is where the Broadway closes right? Oh, my by it
is that I think if you go to the left a little bit more. Yeah. Yeah.
Mike Proctor 36:13
I love the architecture.
Yeah, that’s a cool spot. Man is I can see you say a little bit of an op ed town. I got you. Yeah. picking that up. By the way. That lady’s dress.
Mike Proctor 36:24
It reminds me of Grand Rapids a little bit. Yeah, yeah. In this little nice sheet or this little. This little kind of part here got a Jaguar right
here. And we get some heels right there. Have
Mike Proctor 36:33
you ever been to Grand Rapids?
Uh, yeah. Once or twice, bro. You would love it there You should go check them they got that pub down the brewery don’t they? They got a couple of them to couple.
Mike Proctor 36:43
The Bob dude the Bob
and Bob is when you take top is awesome.
Mike Proctor 36:49
But up on the hill is kind of like this like as you go up that way.
Right? Yeah, then like they have like the the two fire house stores. So like, you know, you can pull them up. And then you can just hide over there.
Mike Proctor 37:02
Yeah, those okay. This is uh, this is the Broadway Yeah. Nice. Dude. That’s a fucking dope. Yes, please.
That is a second.
Mike Proctor 37:11
So if you’re, if you’re eating my garbage, what do you eat?
I usually some big macs.
Mike Proctor 37:19
So, so the Quick, quick way easy. Yeah,
but you know, sometimes I doordash me some sushi. Like, you know, make me feel better about myself. You’re dashing it though. Yeah, I will. I don’t got a car. I know.
Mike Proctor 37:33
Oh, damn. Okay, how
do you get around bike it or walk? No, my thankfully, my cousin’s picked me up every morning.
They work the same spot as you. Yeah. Okay,
so we’re so perfect. Yeah, that’s
Mike Proctor 37:43
lucky. That’s awesome, dude. Oh, yeah. Yeah. Your your is it tough to get around? Like, is it real bad traffic and shoot where you are? No,
not at all. It was pretty good. Yeah. Because, I mean, if you go down, like 1520 minutes down to San Francisco way. They’re just getting condense
packed in. So you’re
When’s the last time you cooked in? cooked and shit? Probably cooked in? Probably like a week ago. would you would you eat? We made we boiled up some crab.
How far down? That’s like, crap, man.
Mike Proctor 38:21
Whose week you live?
I got a roommate. Yeah. Yeah, that’s cool. Yeah, he’s cool. And then he’s got his kid with them too.
Mike Proctor 38:29
Oh, right on.
so crazy. He’s just out there in California just doing it.
Mike Proctor 38:35
Yeah, man. Like, sweet. Yeah.
You know, it’s
Mike Proctor 38:38
funny. I think it’s funny. Because when so when you decided to go to California, was it because you got a house and all that and no,
I honestly was just, uh, my, my aunt She. She kind of has she has a lot of money and she started this marijuana business. I was cultivating her own or gotcha. So I went down there thinking yeah, I’m gonna do it’s gonna be so much fun. I get that she’s like, yeah, they shut us down. Like you couldn’t tell told me that? Like, I
quit my job.
Mike Proctor 39:15
but that’s that’s kind of what I was hoping for. Because Because you kind of went on a whim Really? Yeah. And you know, you had a plan but that plan fucking fell apart. It’s just funny how people will figure out what the fuck we need to do to to make you know joke to just
like, you had you had
Mike Proctor 39:32
a plan that fell through our whole fucking families and move to Mexico. And we would make it work. We just figured I would figure it would be fucking weird, but we can
Mexico be cool.
Mike Proctor 39:42
That would become normal. Well, actually,
he went out there to grow marijuana. And now he’s climbing 300 foot towers.
Mike Proctor 39:52
Have you heard her mountain? The hell? You know where? Humboldt County? Okay, are you by Humboldt County?
No, that’s North Yeah, a couple miles. Yeah. Miles Come on out a couple of hours
Mike Proctor 40:03
a couple miles in the in the Midwest. A couple of ways. Yeah. Did you watch it?
Oh, yeah, yeah, no, I’m watching it right now. Yeah, this is crazy as hell. No recommended to me like six times and I was like, finally I was like, I gotta watch this just he’s gonna call me out again. And I watched him in series.
Mike Proctor 40:24
Yeah, it’s a documentary. Yeah, it’s great. Really cool.
It’s literally like, as you describe, like these hippies in California, back in the day, they’re like, Hey, we’re gonna grow some weed out here because it’s really rural. And there’s not a real massive police force. And that they got pushed out. And, like, basically, thugs came in and took it over. And now that or, I guess not now what at time of filming? You know, it’s just so strange. It’s, yeah. Oh, definitely a couple years within I think 2017 is like when it’s the filming is taking place. Yeah, but it’s just tons of like, 20 murders a year in like, this little rural county with a small population. Yeah,
Mike Proctor 41:06
it’s it’s like its own militia out there.
Like, literally, cops are rolling up here. And people are like, on quads and shit. Like, don’t come any farther. Or eat off Milan. Yeah, it’ll happen. And the cops are like, All right. Good point. It’s crazy. But good show. Definitely check it out. And I will for sure.
Mike Proctor 41:27
Um, how’s your how’s your sleep?
Mike Proctor 41:31

Yeah, like grind my teeth to what so are you you’re out you trying to Are you out of 10 guy every night. On You said you’re if you’re going out to the to perform and work the club. You’re you got to be up late. Yeah, like, yeah, I usually sleep pretty good on those nights. But I feel like that’s the booze and alcohol. Yeah, but that’s not even really good sleep if like yeah, even with that. Yeah, that’s true. Yeah. What?
Mike Proctor 42:07
Are you gonna wake up tired?
What time do you go into your your normal job? A 530 by 30? Yeah. So you are like, Damn, you are both ends of the spectrum. You have a early morning job. Yeah. And then your other job is like the opposite. Which is your weekend job. Right? Yeah, but damn, that is that’s opposite ends of the spectrum. Yeah, for sure.
I’m just glad like the having that was a four day weekend. Really? Kinda. Yeah. lets

mean, I was trying all over the place. I had like a really good summer. And like my parents live on the river and Byron Okay, I had a great summer and I felt like every time I cast the fucking pole I’d catch a fish and I just my my lack of dedication to it I guess the next summer I was like, Oh efficients looking easy. I’m just gonna go everywhere catch everything every time I cast and then I went out and like you know, tried that whole summer and I’m just I’m boycotting I’m kind of pissed off. Yes, sour about it, but but I do have a boat. And it’s it was down to pretty much the end of this whole summer but But next time around. I’ll catch something. Oh, you
Mike Proctor 50:02

yeah do it is it’s just like bro
Mike Proctor 50:14
I seen this thing we can buy this thing for 100 bucks. It’s like a fish lure and you toss it I think it sinks to the bottom and it attracts fish it like puts off a sound that I think is like a meeting sound or some I can’t I seen on Shark Tank, but but it’ll attract fish to the area. It’s like, you know, quantum sign and then
and then you toss your lures and on top of that, okay,
Mike Proctor 50:35
we’ll catch everything. 100 bucks.
I will cheat like nobody’s business makes me feel good.
Mike Proctor 50:42
That’s what I was thinking when he was like giving us. I mean, yeah, but it’s kind of cheating.
Yeah, I’d rather cheat. I just want to fight. That’s all. I just want a couple good fights yet. See? That’s a good
yeah. So where are you fishing in the ocean?
Yeah, in the bay.
You catch a big ship. Catch it.
I caught one fish out of the whole summer. And it was like a big one. Yeah. Yeah, four and a half. Yes. I mean, like, you. We didn’t take it home because we like yeah, by I mean, it’s fucking won’t catch someone won’t catch like a sturgeon or something. Yeah,
that’s what I’m saying. Dude, Florida, and I was like, I was like a work thing. And I was like, having my little sandwich by the water. And it’s like a big ass like, but, Doc, I’m sitting there eating. I think people feed the fish a lot where I was at in Orlando. And this this fish that swam up was this fucking long as I am. Like, I was like, holy shit. Like scared me. freaked me out. I got up I got away from the war. I’m like, I don’t

Mike Proctor 52:11
Yeah, yeah, for sure. They got do but when we when we went down there, one of the funny things was there’s like and I don’t know this to be true, but there’s like a bunch of little lagoons and lakes and wetlands all over by the roads. And they have netting up to like probably keep the critters out. and such. And there’s it’s like safety fence. You know, like the plastic like, plant almost checker fence type of stuff. And they have that all over the roads. And I was like, maybe just imagine hitting a fucking alligator. You know, we hit deer up here. We hit a fucking alligator. You probably want to kill it or like a giant turtle just takes your car.
It’s funny. Like he talked about that because literally the two times that we went to Florida together once we almost hit was an armadillo. A crane. Crane bingo a flamingo there’s almost we almost fucking smoked a flamingos that
