An Interview With DJ Nappy: Thugstep Architect

November 22nd, 2010 · 5 Comments

Nappy 795288 An Interview With DJ Nappy: Thugstep Architect
DJ Nappy at a party in New Brunswick in 2007

Wow, it’s been a minute since I’ve seen or heard anything from Nappy. There was that party in 2007 where I ended up in Jersey after a White T’s White Belts and saw him spin all thugstep at a party in Rutgers the next day and met Khal from RockTheDub. Needless to say the Thugstep Architect is back, thugstep is huge and there is alot more to come.  Read on for the interview and some recent thugstep refixes.

5151: Finally!

Nappy: Yeah, right? It’s been a minute.

I think we last posted about you in 2007, so as a reintroduction who is DJ Nappy?

I’m the dude that kidnapped you from Philly and held you hostage in Jersey for 2 days. Sorry about that, by the way.

Haha, that was a crazy couple days.  Good times.  Were you the first one to coin “thugstep” / do “thugstep” blends? How did that come about?

I know there were a few people that did thugstep blends before me. The dude south3rn on the dubstep forum made some quality stuff right around the time I started, but nobody made 100 refixes in a few months or named it anything besides ‘dubstep refix’ to my knowledge. Who knew it would blow up under that name?

Read on for the rest of the interview.

Tonight: Ubiq x NBA Jam Party

November 18th, 2010 · 1 Comment

NBA JAM UBIQ Tonight: Ubiq x NBA Jam Party
Tonight head to Ubiq for the NBA Jam release party with 76er Jrue Holiday, DJ Ambush and hosted by Set Free.  Moments ago, Freeway just confirmed that he will be performing as well.  RSVP to Ubiqlife@hotmail.com.

NBA Jam Release Party
featuring DJ Ambush, Hosted by Set Free
Special performance from Freeway
Ubiq
1509 Walnut Street
7 – 9 PM

Mick Boogie was commissioned to put together a mixtape for the relaunch of NBA Jam as well.

NYC-based Mick Boogie, known for his eclectic DJ sets and amazing mixtapes, is also an avid basketball fan and a video game junkie. With the recent return of the classic 90’s arcade game NBA JAM (now refreshed and remixed for 2010), Mick was inspired to put together a mixtape of classic and rare 90’s remixes that serve as the soundtrack to where we were back in the day. Being that NBA JAM dropped in 1993… Mick’s decision to call the mix “93 Til’ Infinity” was the only appropriate choice!

In addition to the mixtape, Mick collaborated with vintage t-shirt designers Homage to create a limited edition NBA JAM/93 Til Infinity inspired tee to celebrate the release of this mix and the videogame. You can find the shirt here.

Download 93 til Infinity here

The Last Robotique and Interview With Billy W

October 15th, 2010 · 1 Comment

robotique 500x262 The Last Robotique and Interview With Billy W

Tonight marks the last Robotique at Kung Fu Necktie.  I have to say I was quite surprised that it was ending.  Robotique has been going strong for 2 plus years as a weekly which is throughly impressive.  To mark the occasion, I wanted to find out more from Billy Werner one of the two resident DJ’s along with Ryan T.

For those that have missed out on the past 2 plus years, what is Robotique?

Robotique is a weekly party where one can expect to hear everything from disco to house to rock to funk and back again. In layman’s terms, we were a DJ night presented by hardcore music heads for other hardcore music heads.

What did Billy W and Ryan T do before Robotique?

Played and collected music. Both of us come from band backgrounds and discovered DJing through years of record collecting. I started playing drums in punk rock bands in 1993. Started collecting wax shortly after that and began DJing in some capacity in 1998.

Have you guys always djed the same style of music? What got you into djing?

Ryan has always played synth-based music and soul music. I started out with northern soul and rare groove. Breakbeats got me interested in jungle and drum n bass, which is how I really learned how to mix. Eventually I parlayed the skills acquired during that time into disco and house.. It was kind of a logical progression to get where I am now in terms of taste and interests.
