As has so often been said, Randolph Chabot—aka the young Detroit producer/bandleader/frontman known as Deastro—is a big, energetic ball of positivity. Deastro’s full-length debut, Moondagger, is currently making the rounds as Randy and Co. tour the US, the UK, and the rest of the galaxy (?!); a new single, the psychedelic anthem (but aren’t they all?) ‘Tone Adventure #3,’ is on its way as well. As you’ll see from his answers to our Five Questions, Randy’s got an omnivorous musical appetite and a romantic worldview. More below…

1. Why should people listen to your music?

You should listen to my music because I like people.

2. What’s the one record you can’t live without?

Hans Otte, Aquarian Music.

3. What song should play every time you enter a room?

‘To Hell with the Devil’ by Stryper.

4. What project are you working on at this exact moment?

I am working on a noise collaboration at this moment—it doesn’t have a name yet, I have thought about calling it Christian Strength, but we will see.

5. How about a piece of sage advice for the younger generation?

Fall in love.
