So many great moments in this interview as well as chorus of adoring comments. Like this in which he combines dancing, music, sex, gospel and spirituality all in one:
Dancing to me is a sacred thing. It really really is. So to see people get on that tip makes me happy. It’s almost like juggling fire at the same time, you want to keep doing that until there’s a release. It’s also like sex. This is really the same as talking about sex. When you’re with somebody, how is it that you decide for it to go where it’s going to go? You know where you wanna end up. You know that much. But how do you get to that point? DJ’ing is kind of the same for me. Like sex, I could do it everyday, for hours and hours and hours. Because you’re immersed in something that’s fluid and good. And it’s always been present for me. I started DJ'ing even before I really started DJ'ing. I went to bible college, and would buy records and play them for people, because that’s what I knew. I didn’t know the Gospels, I knew the music that I listened to. I grew up listening and dancing to music in church. There was a reason I responded to spirituality, because the music was so damn good. I can’t even describe how good it was. I don’t even know if you can find that happening now. I happened to grow up in the 60’s in Chicago, with that gospel.
