Redial - Let's Dial Again...

Friday, 1 February 2008
Redial from the Ghetto Ruckus crew is hitting Parramatta this weekend, joining the Trashbags posse for what looks to be a night of apocalyptic proportions. Don’t say you weren’t warned.

So what’s the difference between Redial and Ghetto Ruckus-

Basically Ghetto Ruckus is more hanging out with the boys, getting loose and just having a mix and a good time, where as [as] Redial I’m concentrating more so on production, still DJing of course, but I want to develop my own style, but it’s hard to do with four people in a group.

For a while there (like, last year) you were putting out mixes on the net every few weeks…what happened there- We’re having withdrawal symptoms.
I guess I stopped with the mixes and started writing my own tunes – I get bored writing mixes, haha. I’ve got a mix coming out in the next week though – you’ll find it on the Trashbags blog.

According to your MySpace you’re working on something. What is this ‘something’ you speak of- A single- And LP- Do divulge!
It’s an EP … three tracks … a few people have heard little previews here and there – it’s going to be released around June through Sweat it Out.

You have remixed some awesome tracks by the likes of Daft Punk, Justice and the lovely Muscles. But you threw a curve ball with the Stockholm Syndrome remix. (It’s rad – don’t misinterpret the question.) The real question is – have you secretly remixed a song you’re yet to have the balls to drop- Whitney Houston perhaps-

Oh yes for sure. I’ve got a remix of Marilyn Manson’s The Beautiful People, which is a ballsy song by itself let alone adding a beat to it – it’s quite crazy. I’ve also finished a remix of Daft Punk’s One More Time – to be unleashed at Kill The Radio on 16 February.

So…you’re playing Kill The Radio. For my 17-year-old sister who’d yet to experience the debauchery that is KTR, can you, in your own words, describe a typical night- Don’t worry, she can stomach it.
Imagine the loudest, most insane, crazy, group of guys you can think of, then get them to throw a party with some of the worlds best DJs/producers. Mix it with more than a few drinks, and watch the club just heave with energy. The nights that the Trashbags boys run have a soul that no other night in Sydney can even get close to. All bangers. If you don’t know what that means, then you shouldn’t be there.

Finally, which international DJs/producers are you currently gushing over-
JFK, DIM, Yuksek.
