A few years ago, Four Color Zack came out of nowhere and started making us all feel like we might wanna quit DJing.  Before I could finish my coffee, he was the 2012 Red Bull Thre3style World Champion.  The best part of this tale is, as you’ll learn from this interview, Zack is one of the nicest, most humble and hardest-working DJs in the game.  If anyone should be the ambassador for DJing, this guy deserves that crown for sure.  Zack recently chiseled some time out of his crazy schedule to sit down with me for a coffee and talk about becoming a DJ by way of a metal band, his love of social media and staying positive as a DJ.

I first stumbled upon Doc Delay when I was perusing the Piecelock 70 site for random People Under The Stairs music and DJ Day remixes.  I was pleasantly surprised to find some of his excellent mixtapes and remixes.  As I dug around on the internet a bit, I only found more goodness.  If you like funky sample-based music, you’ll enjoy Doc Delay‘s creations.  Check out this interview, give the podcast a good rating on iTunes and watch the trailer for his new album “Morgan” below.

If you’re like me, you’re addicted to podcasts.  Aside from a full diet of new and classic music to check out, I fill my plate with interesting people interviewing other interesting people.  I like them so much I even made my own (Extra Credit).   Another great podcast on the DJ information tip is hosted by the DJ/production duo Rock-It Scientists.  Not only are they constantly filling your DJ crates with custom bangtastic tracks, but they’re also talking to DJs about any and everything DJ-related.

 

On my tour last month I was invited over to talk about DJing and promote the #DJMovie project that I’m working on.  (If you haven’t donated or checked out “Soundtrack: The Story of the DJ”, you can do so at www.TheDJDocumentary.com)  We had a great talk about the ups and downs of DJing, the documentary and how we can un-fuck DJing. (Hopefully?)

 

Check out the podcast, subscribe, give them a good rating, send it to a club owner and get behind the DJ documentary movement.  (Even if you’re not a DJ!)

The first official DJ for a President of the United States, DJ Adam 12 has had an interesting and envy-inducing career.  He’s been the DJ for icons like Prince and Dr. Dre as well as the resident selector at some of the best parties in the history of LA (if not the world).  Above all that, he’s one of the nicest DJs I’ve ever met.  I got a chance to meet up with him at his studio where he’s working on a new solo non-DJ album.  (On top of his amazing DJ career he’s also one half of She Wants Revenge).  Make some popcorn and enjoy this one.

DJ 88 on the Extra Credit Podcast

 

In November I headed to Las Vegas to DJ some dates at Insert Coins.  Luckily I had some microphones in my bag and snagged an interview with my most hospitable host, DJ 88.  In Episode 8 (that was a total accident) of the Extra Credit Podcast, Las Vegas murder mami DJ 88 fills us in about coming up as DJ Adam 12‘s manager, Associate Producing the High School High soundtrack and carving out her place in the boy’s club that is DJing.  Do the knowledge, subscribe and give the podcast a good rating!

Moomba Montreal Recap

 

Last Saturday night I got to head back to Montreal to rock a set at Moomba Theater.  Moomba is a massive gourmet restaurant that transforms into a Vegas-style nightclub and books some of the biggest DJs in the world.  We clocked over 1,000 people through the doors and I put down some big room house, EDM and a dash of twerk.  The party was definitely live.  View the full photo album HERE.

 

 

KZME Interview

 

Back in October of 2013 (Yeah I’m a little late on the repost) Portland homie DJ Klyph had me on 107.1 FM KZME Portland radio to play a few joints and talk about DJing.  Luckily I had my friends DJ Excel and DJ Impulse in town that week so it was a combo deal.  Check out Klyph’s show “Welcome to the Neighborhood” online or on the radio if you live in Portland.  Recorded 10/29/2013 – Listen HERE.

Have you ever wondered what Coffee Talk would be like with a bunch of DJs?  Well, Episode 7 of the Extra Credit Podcast turned into that.  DJ Impulse (and DJ Excel) drank all my coffee and ate all my donuts in my kitchen while we talked about Impulse coming up in Baltimore.  This episode covers Baltimore club music, horrible DJ names, touring with rappers when you’re a white dude and even gives you some great tips on making a good cup of coffee.  Enjoy, subscribe in iTunes and give us a good rating.
