"I started DJ'ing when I found that I simply could not stop complaining about others' music choices (I still can't, I guess I'm a music snob). Since then I've DJ'ed at events such as Orient Lindy Express, Harlem and Arctic Lindy Exchange. As a DJ I consider myself both an entertainer and an educator. Entertainer, in that the music should inspire to movement, it should flow, and people should feel excited to dance. Educator in that as a DJ I decide what people listen and dance to, and when something is a Lindy Hop event, I feel it's my responsibility during a Lindy Hop event to nudge them towards that musical aesthetic which really gives Lindy Hop life... and to avoid music that, though fun on the surface, pushes dancers away from the aesthetic. This means, a lot of Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw, Roy Eldridge, and with good doses of Cab Calloway, Johnny Hodges, and Jimmie Lunceford - while avoiding Elvis, Postmodern Jukebox and Big Bad Voodoo Daddy."
