Kalidasa – THE RANSOM NOTE Mix + Q&A
So without further ado, we bring introduce to you; Kalidasa:
Please introduce yourself
In the home studio in Brighton
Whatever you like, as long as you are there to dance.
If it were a dream, then a viewing platform in space surrounded by many visible planets, the system is in harmony with the surroundings, the speakers are visible forms of energy pulsating and throbbing and the format is something I have never seen before and cannot describe in words, as I am dreaming and it is all a bit unusual.
It is a bit like asking what was your favourite meal of all time, I honestly cannot remember I have had so many, but some are more memorable than others. One mix that sticks in mind is a tape from 1991, recorded by a local DJ to where I used to live called Stuart B, it was by far the most inspiring, I spent the subsequent 10 years trying to find out all the tracks, I failed miserably for 9 years, before I discovered the internet.
If I went back in time it would be a back to Back with Stuart B, so I could ask him for the track listing of the mix tape, I could then have used my time more productively for the 10 years that followed.
First home set up, apart from switching back and fourth rapidly between phono and tape inputs on the Hitachi Music centre to get some kind of cutting effect, was 2 x 1210's and a mixer. At home now I have 2 x 1210's, 1 x CDJ and a mixer.
That depends, a train driver will say both, staying on the track is the most important thing. I think it depends on the situation, you choose the one that feels right for that moment, I don't know if that makes it more important or not, I think I probably have a pragmatic approach to it.
One of my home made curries, good ingredients and a bit of kick.
A rattle snake
The flip of the single sided white label I have, gets me every time.
Recently the wonderful Magic Feet released an EP of mine called The Waiting Game, and there is a four track EP I have done for Tusk Wax that is hitting the shops in the next week.
The continuation of the Bi-Monthly Kinfolk parties in Brighton which I do with Soft Rocks and Easy Jim, next one is 14th December which is in the basement of The Globe in Brighton and is Free entry.
Oh and there is a Kalidasa FB page that went live the other day.
