The title disc jockey says it all really. Any humble jockey will tell you that it's all about the horses, they do their amazing thing for you. The joy comes in listening and selecting the music based on previous influences and experiences and then practicing the skills to put the magic tricks/tracks together. An art teacher once told me that contrast equals interest and I like to push that philosophy as much as my skills can allow me (sometimes beyond into a buckle!) But that's the fun of it, and that's the point of it isn't it? Try to help create a good vibe, have a laugh, entertain, come together, shake your body down and let it go!
I have also enjoyed putting together the drone/film/photo collaborations over the last couple of GIVEs. They make me smile; to see all that happiness incapsulated in a 3-4 minute “videotonic”. What truly amazes me after 35 years going out and dancing is the continued effervescent flow of amazing music that bubbles up to enjoy. Here's to many more! x Olz
