Best Of 2008

Wednesday, 31 December 2008 Q&A
Of the Buzz Q&As Update did this year, here's some of the most enlightening / bizarre / funny / (delete as appropriate) moments of the year:What's The Best Night Out You've ever Had? Paul Woolford: A very close call between Tenaglia at Groovejet in Miami in 2000 or this weekend just gone at the re-opened Paradise Factory in Manchester. Both for completely different reasons. At Groovejet I had managed to lose my wallet (containing, foolishly, $1200) after ingesting something green (!) and aft...

Wednesday, 24 December 2008 Q&A
Hi Greg, you've just got back from your travels I hear..."Hi Dan, yes we've just a few weeks in Australia, Brazil and my first time in Japan - what an eye opener. Tokyo is an amazing city, I can't imagine what that place and country must have been like 50 or 60 years ago - it must have been incredible. I know it's been westernised over the years, but wow, what a culture..."So, you have deep DMC roots..."I have known your parents from way back, your dad is The Royal Ruler."So on with the music, i...

Black Eyed Peas DJ, a mutha of a DJ and just a really cool guy speaks out to DMCYo Rocky - you grew up I believe in California, what were the best things about growing up in one of the most amazing States in America?"California is a very chilled State, growing up here couldn't be any greater for where I am at today - I grew up in the city of San Jose, a lot of DJ's came out of this city such as Dstyles, Peanut Butter Wolf and Finger Bangerz.

Drum & Bass Down Under, we speak to one of the crew, Nick Robinson...So first things first, Drum & Bass and New Zealand...not two things the British would really associate with each other - how did this happen for you?"Well Drum & Bass has always been huge in Aotearoa.

Thursday, 20 November 2008 Q&A
'Suicide Tuesday' is your second album out, it's dark and cool - first off though, what's with the name of the release?"It's a tongue in cheek look at club culture. Many people have different names for it but most hedonists say that Tuesday is the worst day of the week for them and we'll leave it at that. It's raw punk energy, razor sharp guitars, bass and mashed up beats.""What DJs and producers influenced you back in the day that have moulded your style?"So many different people really. The al...

What's The Best Night Out You've Ever Had?The best night I ever had with my clothes on is maybe a night I spent in Queens in a Trinidad styled bar full of people during a power cut. The owner put candles on the bar and drinks were on the house we drank and talked about life till about 7am nobody left, no drunken fights, no beef but lots of jokes and I got a ride home too. What's Your Favourite Club?My favourite club has to be split between the Melkweg{milky way}Amsterdam and Club Harlem-Tokyo Wh...

James - "I was living in Spain at the time of the acid house explosion. I was 12 at the time and my brother used to go to all these clubs in Madrid bringing tapes back the DJ had given him. I used to nick them off him when he wasn't around and record them, then spend hours in my room with my headphones on wondering what it w...

You are one of the most busiest DJs on the worldwide clubbing circuit. It all began at one of the most famous waterside clubs in the world - Bora Bora in Ibiza. Your staff were from Canada, France, the US, Spain, Uruguay and Germany. Mad times I take it?"Yeah, that was a really crazy time and to be honest, some of the best I can remember.

The Young Punx

Wednesday, 20 August 2008 Q&A
Cameron, what started you on this crazy clubbing kick?"I remember getting into electronic music when I was a young child as a teenage kid across the street with a kid called Clive. He used to get his piece of lino and boombox out in the street opposite our house and practice his break dancing, which was kind of unusual for a white working class suburb of Liverpool! I remember the moment vividly, it was Hashim Al Naayfiysh and it was like a visitation for the future of music. It was seriously lik...
