Yes, belive it, DJ Dan and Charles Feelgood interviewed eachother for raversdigest.com
Special thanks to these DJs for meeting the unique requirements of our "Vs." Interview series.
DJDan: you are from baltimore, home of
john waters, tell us some interesting stuff about baltimore
Feelgood: baltimore is its own little universe. the scary thing is that baltimore is very much like the john waters movies. theres an eclectic mix of people there, black, white, puerto rican, everybody come a freakin.
DJDan: it seems to be a very difficult time in the economy. how do you feel it is affecting the scene?
Feelgood: we are getting paid a few pounds less these days, but thats okay. you have to go with the flow. when the economy gets hit entertainment suffers the most, but thanks for helping me get that part-time job alongside you posing for playgirl, the extra $ will come in handy!
DJDan: you do an amazing rick astley impersonation, have you ever done him in karaoke?
Feelgood: yes! together forever and never to part, together forever with you, and dont you know I would ..........
DJDan: what are your feelings on the rave act?
Feelgood: pathetic, i would be surprised if it passes. i filled out the form going around the internet that goes to your particular senator. i hope everyone who loves this music does the same.
DJDan: what are you currently working on?
Feelgood: i have a couple a tracks up my sleeve right now, one has a really obscure sample from a not so well known eighties group. the next mix CD will be out in january.
DJDan: vinyl sales are down in america, what do you think we can do as djs to encourage record sales?
Feelgood: kids are buying records more than ever, but again the economy has affected record sales. i feel like were doing a good job putting good records out-its just the average home jock cant afford to spend a lot of money on records right now. i actually think there are better records out right now than in the past few years. we just have to keep em comin and wait out the troubled times.
DJDan: do you think programs like final scratch will eventually revolutionize djing or will vinyl always rule?
Feelgood: i think final scratch is killer (and not just because thats the last thing I do before I go to sleep at night) but I hope vinyl will remain king, its a lot more fun and it doesnt crash!
DJDan: many people think that traveling as much as we do is glamorous. can you shed some light on the situation?
Feelgood: im cramped as hell right now on a plane answering these questions. a first class upgrade wasnt possible and when youre almost 65 coach doesnt cut it. to tell the truth traveling is really difficult and its gotten worse since 9/11. its so worth it however, when you get to a rockin venue and all the problems you had getting there are forgotten.
DJDan: tell us a funny story about djing with scott henry from back in the day.
Feelgood: i remember scott and i were djing in North Carolina quite a few years back and the party was raided by the N.C. narcotics officers. kids were scrambling like roaches on the titanic and -scott and i were terrified. we had our hands up against the wall and were searched.
DJDan: i know youve rocked some outfits in the eighties. give us a visual, take us there.
Feelgood: oh boy! my favorite was my break dancing days, i thought i was LL Cool J, but weighed 125 pounds with 10 pound dumbbells in my pockets. then i went through my goth meets wham stage with a rat tail (dyed blonde-do you have any idea how hard it is for a black man to grow a rat tail?) i wore a trench coat with high top converse and
a choose life shirt!
DJDan: what is youre favorite movie/show of all time?
Feelgood: my favorite show is a japanese show from the seventies called Ultraman
DJDan: i hear you have a mean and aggressive pussy. is this true?
Feelgood: yes, very true, the meanest pussy youve ever seen. his name is Butch and he doesnt like anyone, he guards my house.
DJDan: you have a bad ass ride-tell us about it.
Feelgood: its a 2001 e46 m3 Laguna Seca Blue-19 three piece Racing Dynamics wheels- H&R coilover suspension, RD exhaust, its a Honda Killer!
DJDan: tell us a good stalker story.
Feelgood: without letting on too much, i once saw a girl at a club in florida then ran into her the next day in the mountains in Denver. I was like what the fuck are you doing here? if i give you any more info i may not make it to my gigs this weekend.
DJDan: what is your favorite pop song at the moment?
Feelgood: dont let me, get me by Pink, shes dope!
DJDan: favorite restaurant and dish in LA?
Feelgood: in n out hamburger, i get it protein style
Feelgood: how do you feel about your
fans and everyday acquaintances addressing you as DJ Dan instead
of just plain old Dan?
Feelgood: speaking of the eighties,
i heard you could give Boy George a run for his money in the
outfit department back in the day!
