Since emerging "from a witch's cauldron" in 2008, laser-eyed DJ/VJ duo roeVy have become Ohio's dark lords of electronic dance music. This Saturday they celebrate Halloween with an audiovisual extravaganza at Newport Music Hall, their first local appearance since the release of their adrenaline-charged "The Demons EP" two weeks ago.

Since emerging "from a witch's cauldron" in 2008, laser-eyed DJ/VJ duo roeVy have become Ohio's dark lords of electronic dance music. This Saturday they celebrate Halloween with an audiovisual extravaganza at Newport Music Hall, their first local appearance since the release of their adrenaline-charged "The Demons EP" two weeks ago.

While resting up for this weekend's show "at a top-secret 3,500-square foot penthouse in West Hollywood," they melded minds to answer some questions over email.

Who is writing these answers?

We're both composing the answers together.Four hands typing in live edit via Google Docs (stock ticker: GOOG).

RoeVy's aesthetic has definitely evolved, but it was so well-defined even from the beginning. Could you describe the process of conceiving the project?

RoeVy started in 2008 in a stripped down, fairly untrained format, but the main focus was and always has been live video/audio integration into a club environment. We both come from a background of going to a lot of very energetic punk shows and always being interested in artists that put an emphasis on the visual aspect of their live performances.

Has the vision for the project changed at all since you started?

Overall the vision hasn't really changed.We are, however, always looking for ways to improve the complexities of the show as a full experience.

With that in mind, you guys put a lot of work into the visuals for your shows. How do the two of you split up the workload between audio and visuals?

Live, we basically split the audio and video roles down the middle.We work on the costumes, images, production and set planning together.

I understand you're debuting new costumes at this show? How do you conceive of them? Who makes them?

We get together with Tina Matthews, our costume designer.She's incredibly talented and is super compatible with our aesthetic. We brainstorm/sketch a bunch of different ideas and discuss how to evolve the costumes into a new direction while keeping the general look.The ones being revealed on Saturday have been in the works since July.

What are you supposed to be? Robots? Demons? Humans with awesome costumes like Darth Vader?

Our aesthetics' main focus is on the glowing eyes - we wear costumes that focus on framingthem and trying to keep the look ambiguously dark.We think it's really cool that people compare us with so many characters associated with pop culture and entertainment, even if that wasn't our full intent.

Before "The Demons EP" you guys hadn't released a lot of music. How much of your set consists of original material? How do you choose the rest of the music?

Our music production has just begun to evolve.We haven't produced too much in the past, but we've integrated a lot of custom made audio into our sets. Lately the sets have been consisting of much more original material/remixes.

What was your musical background before roeVy? Had you made music before? Is this your first time making electronic music?

We've both been involved in various music projects in the past - none focusing on dance music. We didn't really give a s--t about most dance music until 2006 or so.

How long have the songs on "The Demons EP" been in the works?

We started working on them over a year ago. It's taken a second to get them in line because we're pretty picky/critical of our own work.Also, we wanted to clearly focus the EP on a variety of dance music subgenres for its scope … which took a bit of planning.

Like the shows, the EP has some darkness about it but is mostly high-energy party music. I see a linkage to rock bands like KISS that wrap up accessible music in dark packaging. Is that a fair comparison?

That's a totally fair comparison.We really strive for consistent branding/looks more so now then ever.Unlike KISS, we don't plan on having such a glorified presence across Hot Topics all over the United States.

For your last Newport show, you had Queen Mae and the Bells doing dance stuff. Will there be some special element to this show as well?

There will be plenty of surprises to be seen for sure!

Your bio mentions that you're interested in booking globally. Have you done many out of town shows? Do you have any plans coming up for tours or festivals outside Ohio?

We've played all around Ohio at this point.We have a few out of state shows coming up over the next couple months.We're always looking to go bigger … we love to play in unique environments, like a basement show at NASA HQ or at the next White House Correspondents' Dinner.

You guys are out of town as we correspond. Where are you? What are you doing?

We're currently bunkered down at a top-secret 3,500-square foot penthouse in West Hollywood. Trying our best to unwind after a couple brutal months of work - we want to be in great shape for the show.

It's well known that roeVy loves me AND loves Satan. How should I feel about that?

You should feel great because we also love unicorns, stars and rainbows.In fact, there's not much roeVy doesn't love. :)
