Why do we like this?

I got to attend CRSSD Fest this past weekend, so I'm in a very good mood. The festival played host to Hot Creations artists Jamie Jones, Hot Natured, and relative newbies Pleasure State. After my San Diego-induced euphoria had passed, I happily accepted an invitation to Mixmag's Lab featuring the latter of the Hot Creations' artists.

I had the opportunity to sit down (we were actually standing) with Lee Foss and MK, two-thirds of Pleasure State. Unfortunately Anabel must have thought I smelled like something horrible and declined my invite. 

Time was tight and questions were few, plus I've always been a fan of letting the music do the the talking. So, what was I really curious about then?

I wanted to know where the name Pleasure State comes from.
As a name enthusiast -- yes all of my pets have sick DJ monikers -- I longed for the answer. What I uncovered is that Pleasure State refers to California, which I'm slowly finding out is a state ripe with hedonism.

I had to get a bit of background as to when Lee Foss started rapping. Apparently, in their down time, Pleasure State listens to a range of music -- because 24/7 house consumption is only for the really brave. MK prefers R&B, while Lee loves his hip-hop. As for Anabel, I'm going to withhold my guess.

Pleasure State is currently in the studio working on an album to share with all your beautiful ears. I don't have a weird ear fetish or anything like that, but if what they've put out is anything to go by, I'm curious to hear more.
