making music with music
When i first started i was a deejay. I had no idea i would make music. I used to be with Juan, Jaun Atkins, we were kids man, but i’ve learned more of the things fundamentals that stayed with me all my life. When i watched him i was able to understand how to ‘feel’ the air, how not just to breathe the air, but ‘feel’ the air. I learned the philosophy of how to make records speak to each other, how to make records sing to each other, how to make records talk to each other, how to make music out of music. And that philosophy of making music with music, with records, was something i’ve carried over into my idea of making music as well.
