WHERE Saturday (November 22) at Wrongbar (1279 Queen West), opening up for legendary hip-hop and electro pioneers Newcleus as part of Activator; November 29 at the Drake (1150 Queen West), playing classic hip-hop as part of the monthly Never Forgive Action party; Wednesdays at LeVack Block (88 Ossington), as part of Loose Joints. He and the rest of the NFA crew will also be at Revival (783 College) December 5 hosting Hip-Hop Karaoke.
WHAT "I'll always have a soft spot for late 80s and early 90s hip-hop, because that's the goodness I grew up on. I also like to play funk, soul, disco, funky jazz and any current electronic and hip-hop joints inspired by the aforementioned."
WHY "When I began Never Forgive Action back in 2004, I realized the DJs I was playing with were very talented and I needed to step up my game. I thought I could get away with just playing records, but if you want to rock a party and keep the dance floor bumping, you have to mix, period."
MEMORABLE MOMENT "Rainn Wilson from The Office gave me £1 for playing Gang Starr. I guess that's not really that weird, but I just wouldn't have pegged him as a Premo fan."
