DJ Dexter - Since I Left The Avalanches
Friday, 19 October 2007
Have you DJed with DJ Kentaro before-
No. I’ve seen him though. How many arms does he have- Apparently he’s got a six turntable set- Awesome.
Do DJ champions keep in touch with each other-
I don’t – not sure who does – you practise by yourself, compete by yourself, wear your DJ champion jacket by yourself.
How are your own productions coming along-
Brilliant. Grrilla Step is a 15 piece PNG log drumming and krump collab with myself producing and spinning. We are the best.
What do you think about battling these days after you’ve been there, done that-
Same as before – exciting to listen to the few that are pushing the boundaries like Rafik, Muzel and Caveman. Do us a favour and YouTube Caveman – Gameover.
What music are you feeling at the moment-
Krump music all day long – Blicc, Mook, Jtight, future hip hop beats from
Dabrye, Dilla, Madlib, Med, everything on Rush Hour Records especially the hip hop and techno by Aardvark, a few selected dubstep stuff, heaps of traditional world music stuff from Morocco to Japan, Detroit to Denpasar.
Do you still practice routines-
Yep… mostly with krump music and world music. Look out for the Grrilla Step project – we are light years and beyond.
