As if our lineup wasn’t stacked enough
, starting at midnight tonight you’ll be able to catch Justin Miller of DFA Records
killing it on the tables at Brooklyn Bowl. We expect you to bring your very best dance moves, as Miller will be dropping some previously unreleased DFA jams, along with a hand delivered track from Mr. Young Turks
We chatted with Justin about his take on the vinyl wars, his love for smooth 70s jazz, and his last minute trick that got Tim Burton out on the dance floor. We’re excited for a million and one obvious reasons. See you all tonight… and don’t forget to wear your proverbial party pants!
Let’s start with the dividing line in the DJ world. Vinyl or tech– which do you prefer and why?
Vinyl, definitely. I work on a computer all day and if I had to use one to DJ I would go blind. I have a visual/audio recognition when looking at the records I’m playing that helps me hear the music in my head. That just doesn’t happen for me on a computer. I think its a disservice to have too much music available to you at any one time. You tend to stick to what you know or what others might want from you. With a bag of records you shape the night into what you want it to be because you’ve already thought about it ahead of time. Oh, and records sound way BETTER!
