Style: Hip Hop

 

2 times World Champion turntablist DJ Woody has been rocking dancefloors for years with his pioneering audio-visual shows, eclectic DJ sets and next level turntablist displays. His current AV set is a celebration of the best in hip hop from the 90’s golden era to today, whilst his party rocking DJ sets continue in the tradition of the original block party where genre doesn’t matter, good music does.


 

Style in five words:
Hip Hop, Funk, Breaks, Audio-visual, Turntable musician 

Genres that struck me first:
Hip hop hit me like a Mike Tyson punch in the 80s

Most influential artists:
Kid Koala, DJ Shadow, Cut Chemist, D Styles, DJ Nu Mark, DJ Qbert, C2C, El-P, Mixmaster Mike 

My three most successful DJ mixes:
Tokyo Dawn Records – The Boogie (DJ Woody Mixtape)
Chopped Herring Records presents DJ Woody ‘Fly Fishing’

A Country Practice – DJ Woody & Sean Canty (Demdike Stare)

Greatest moment of my career:
Winning  the World ITF title in the mecca of turntablism San Francisco and DJing at a Bronx park jam alongside Jazzy Jay and Kool DJ Red Alert with Grandmaster Caz as my MC! True story 

What makes a DJ a DJ?
Rocking the party using your skill, individuality and creativity to give the people a night to remember.

My favourite embarrassing tune:
There’s a good few but i did love Pet Shop Boys “Shopping” when i was a kid.

Weirdest  thing that happened on tour:
Too many but i once ended up partying at Hugh Heffners penthouse suite in the Palms in Las Vegas after the Grammy’s one year!

MP3  – VINYL:
Why? Both. Serato offers me the opportunity to do something i would have never imagined possible as a young DJ by combining my 2 passions, music and design through my audio-visual shows. Nothing beats wax though for raw turntablism. Best of both worlds!
