What inspired you to be a DJ?
I was at a gig having a boogie to a DJ from the middle of the dance floor and the track gave me goose bumps, I looked to the left at the stranger next to me, he smiled at me, it was an ear to ear smile as he waved one arm in the air, i smiled back and looked to the right and the girl on this side she had the same smile, and i was like "wow the Dj did that, I want to do that to people". I have been so lucky to have seen so many amazing Dj's both internationals and been blessed to spend time with Local Dj's who ... just wanna make people move!
Ok so who makes you wanna get up and move?
I try to maintain an eclectic taste in music, mainly for my own interest but also to make me more versatile as a DJ here’s a bita what I like: Dj Shadow, Stanton warriors, Freq Nasty, Krafty Kuts, Plump Djs, Concorde dawn, Nubreed, Skool of Thought, UBERZONE, Prodigy, Pendulum, Andy C, Rennie Pilgrem, Freestylers, Ali B, Adam Freeland, Way Out West, Crystal Method, Joe, Breakfastaz, Evil Nine, Drummatic twins, Ed Rush and Optical, Salmonella dub, Shapeshifter (NZ), , RUN DMC, DJ Icey, Kraftwerk, Afrika Bambaataa, New Order, NWA, Dr Dre, Public Enemy, The Doors, Pink Floyd, Depeche Mode, should I stop yet???? Ugly Duckling, Infusion, Daft Punk…..
What do you enjoy most about Djing?
Do you prefer Vinyl or CD and why?
I much prefer the Vinly experience, you can touch it and feel it as you play it. I don’t get tha CDJ thing, how ever I see so much potential in the digital programs that are sweeping the industry at the moment, such as serato and final scratch. These make the world of music available to you, not just what you can find on Vinyl or what you can carry around to clubs, and you can kinda feel like your still playing records.
