Watch 3OH!3 discuss their music supervisor role on MTV’s “The Real World: Portland.”
We’d trust electropop masters 3OH!3 with ANY DJ job, whether it’s for a super-slick bar mitzvah or our very own wedding (but preferably our wedding). With such explosive club-ready tracks like the Ke$ha-assisted “My First Kiss” and “Set You Free,” the Boulder, CO duo have just DJ’d their biggest party yet — on MTV’s “The Real World: Portland,” to be exact. (No pressure or anything.) Yep, 3OH!3, aka BFFs Sean Foreman and Nathaniel Motte, were your official music supervisors on tonight’s episode of “The Real World,” spinning tracks like “Die Finks” by The Swayback, “Beer Run” by Thanks For Everything, and the duo’s very own “Back To Life.”
Watch 3OH!3 discuss their “Real World: Portland” guest music supervisor role after the jump.
In the band’s interview, Sean touched base about his and Nathaniel’s music supervisor role: “I listened to DJ Shadow growing up, and I remember there was a moment I was watching one of “The Real World(s),” and his song was placed in it, and it was the first time I’d heard his music outside of a record shop. It was huge for me. I was just like, ’wow, I would love to do something like that.'” We think that’s called #FATE, Sean.
