Mix Master Mike @ Long Island
    #11345320 - 10/29/09 03:26 PM (8 years, 4 months ago)

Just got home from seeing Mix Master Mike in New York.  If anyone hasn't heard of him he DJ-ed for the Beastie Boys for a long time before going solo.  He still tours with the Beastie Boys whenever he can.

Just so you know, Mix Master Mike is my idol.

Anyway work provided me with Press Passes (I occasionally write for local magazines/newspapers), and with those passes I managed to score myself a one on one interview with the mixmaster right after the show.  I was sincerely worried about seeming childishly giddy, luckily come interview time I had settled into a nice mellow mood (with the aid of a joint).

At any rate the interview went really well.  He's a really chill guy, was really interested in answering all the questions he could.  For one, it turns out his 1994 live performance at DMC was in fact improvised (genius).

I will try and provide a link to the full interview once its put up.

I know this seems strange to have a thread that leads seemingly nowhere, but I was so psyched that I had to tell someone.  Since none of my friends are answering their phone calls, I'd thought I'd come and share it here.

Anyway, thanks for reading!  If your a fan of Mix Master Mike, he also told me that his next two albums (one studio album and one mix cd) will be released early 2010.

That's cool man. I often wonder how I would go about interviews with various artists I like. Get us a link when you can.
