“DJs, like drummers before them, have a critical responsibility to keep time for the band/community. When they feed the people a singular voice and that voice happens to be nihilistic, the people suffer the consequences. If they truly play the array of voices representative of the Diaspora, the people prosper. I have attempted to create art that is the next step in this legacy-a mesh of visible/audible politics, spirituality and culture. If performed correctly I also hope to move the crowd.”
