– Producer/DJ/Crate Digger/Hedonist
“Who is this horrible drunk?!”
Direct was first drawn to hip hop back in 1998 listening to gangstarr and pete rock on beats 2the rhyme. In 2000 he obtained his first pair of turntables and in 2001 he laid his hands on his most prized possesion, the akai mpc 2000xl which he still uses to this day along with a few synths and his multitrack as he refuses to use a computer for his soulful, distinct production. His approach to music is clinical and he is proficent in many instruments, most notably the guitar with which he lays down funk licks like nobody else.
Direct is also an avid cratedigger searching far and wide for funk, soul, jazz, reggae and rock records to bolster his already formidable collection of wax. You can find direct on most days chain-smoking “bigheads”, taking prescription drugs and gettin horribbly drunk. Usually culminating in some sort of rampage where he is likely to offend freinds and foes alike!
