Where did you get your DJ Name from?
Some time back in 2002 a lot of times when I'd work on tracks, I would do it after watching a horror movie (or even a few times, while I was watching it. Dual monitor setup is t3h pwn)
So I was fucking around with Acid, and was doing a breaks remix of my favorite hard acid tune, Brain #31-Tinnitus, while watching Army of Darkness, just as more of a background thing so that I can keep getting distracted and never tire of focusing too much on what I'm doing.
In the middle of working on it, I loaded up a new drum loop, right as Ash says "Now listen up, you primitive screwheads. See this? This... is my boomstick! ", and my CPU froze up for a second (I had a P3/550 with 128 megs ram) and my media player stuttered on the workd Screwhead, but what I was playing in acid was still going and it ended up beatmatched so that Screwhead was skipping on beat and Boomstick hit right when the track dropped.
I went and googled it and found no other Dj or producer by the name of Screwhead (Spooky, The Spookshow and Nothing were already used by people)
Current styles played?
Drum 'n Bass mainly, with a little hardcore, hard acid and hip hop on occaision.
Years of experience acquired in General?
Been producing since mid-late 1996, though nothing worth mentioning.
Been mixing with MP3s since about the same time, just making mix tapes to listen to on my walkman that consisted of metal, goth rock, industrial and EBM.
Years of experience acquired on the rave/party scene?
Started going to parties in august 2002 and haven't looked back. Got turntables in november 2003 and started mixing DnB on vinyl.
Equipment used (turntables - cds - gear)?
2 Stanton STR8-30s (I know, I reeeeeeally need better decks.)
Numark DXM01 mixer
IBM ThinkPad i1200 running Traktor
Favorite record labels?
DnB: Freak, Human, Timeless, Uprising, Breakbeat Kaos, Vision
Hip Hop: Psychopathic, Strange Music, PSYCHO+LOGICAL, Suburban Noize
Current favorite DJs & those that have inspired you since the beginning?
Tipsy T. (I <3 Cheeze!), Galaksy (Got me into DnB), Mindset (Scratching + DnB = amazing), Clown and Neoform (both got some of the tightest mixing I've ever heard)
What do you think the future holds for you?
A room with a moose.
-Drink specials : 10 $ pitchers, 1 shooter : 3,50$ ; 2 shooters for a mere 6$.
3$ BEFORE midnight, 5 $ AFTER... that's right.
Tell your friends... spread the HYPE !
On thursdays... it's FORWARD MUSIC, at the PASSEPORT, 2037 St-Denis street, near the Berri metro.
