DJ Risk One Interview

Last week, I had a chance to ask DJ Risk One a few questions. He has been my favorite DJ for a while now. Every remix, mixtape, re-edit he makes is gold. This Seattle native is also a real humble dude, which is cool, because he is no doubt one of the biggest DJ's in the game. From his success as a Crooklyn Clan remixer, to his Las Vegas residencies, his eclectic and unpredictable abilities will have you begging for more. He is even sponsored by LRG. He has even done many upscale private events for Microsoft, Playboy, Scion, and GQ. I'm hoping he sticks around for a long time. Check out this interview with Risk One!

Sparty Tunes: When did you start dj'ing?

Risk One: Back in 2000. I took a DJ class at a teen center and somehow it turned into this, lol.

Sparty Tunes: What is your favorite club or lounge or spot to play at?

Risk One: Right now my favorite spot is Blush in Vegas, my Thursday spot. It's a dope room and good crowd. We can really get loose out there.

Sparty Tunes: What advice do you have for young and aspiring dj's?

Risk One: Work hard, and be patient. If you're really busting your ass, things will happen when its time.. so don't rush it. Also work the game from all angles. Party rocking, mixtapes, production, marketing, networking, etc.. You need to be ahead of the next dude in every way you can.

Sparty Tunes: How much longer do you see yourself in Las Vegas?

Risk One: Well, as long as I don't move there, I can play there forever lol. I'm still flying back and forth from Seattle, which is fine w/ my b/c I love Seattle. Vegas is good for a few days at a time to play, but no way I could ever live there. Too much!

Sparty Tunes: Do you like playing in Seattle or Vegas more?

Risk One: Depends on the room really. I've done wack rooms in Vegas, and super dope parties in Seattle. And vice versa. Now though I really like all my gigs in both cities. Vegas is more of an open format which is always fun. I can usually slide in some cool shit w/o people freaking out haha.

Sparty Tunes: When did you realize, that you were a very sought after dj?

Risk One: Shoot, am I?? haha... I think its all relative. Like, some cats are looking at me wanting to be where i'm at, meanwhile i'm looking other DJs and striving to be where they are. So honestly I don't even think about it, just trying to stay humble and working, trying to make the next moooove.

Sparty Tunes: Who is your favorite dj?

Risk One: Oh man, there's a question. Well Klever is a beast. One of the few super technical DJs that can still rock the shit out of party. Diplo is also a personal favorite. His remix/production game is out of control. And everything he touches is the illest thing you've ever heard.

Throwback Thursday #3

Who's in the club tonight? Clyde Carson and he's bringing Sean Kingston and The Game along. This song came out last summer, but I feel like it never got the attention it deserves. This song is real hot and I still can't believe I never heard it on the radio or saw it on T.V. So check out this song to see how it should have gotten more recognition. Enjoy!

Baby Don't Dance No More

Per request I am posting this one. This song really is off the hook though. DJ Sizzahandz blends these two songs to honestly make a real fly tune. It's hard not to like this one. I got a feeling this one could be a real fan favorite. I posted a mixtape by DJ Matt Medley a couple weeks that included this song in it. Check out this song now! and get on the dancefloor! Enjoy!

Never Gottz Ask

This is real smooth R&B tune from THE biggest names in the game. The last time this group collaborated was when they made "Swagger Like Us." We all know how hot that song got. This one is a softer creation that one can really chill out to. Relax & Enjoy!

Indecent Exposure

Another pleasant surprise in one of my emails. I got this guys email a couple days ago. He records and produces all his music on the computer machine. Hopeless has a nice mix of electronic grit and funk. He is currently wrapping up production on his latest project, "Hand Claps & Cowbells." This tune is a cover of LL Cool J's track. Enjoy!

Akon - World Cup 2010

I have just read that Akon was put in charge by Fifa (Fédération Internationale de Football Association) to oversee the production of the soundtrack for the next World Cup. The next world cup is in 2010. This means that he will produce the official World Cup song and choose who else gets to be on the official soundtrack.

Throwback Thursday #1

Ok, Throwback Thursday is now in session. Let me explain to you all what Thursday Throwback is. Thursday Throwback is something new I am starting. Its not necessarily an old 80's song, but it is a song that is not considered that recent (most likely made in the last year, that may have been overlooked). Songs can include last year.

So here we go! We have a very upbeat mix created by Bob Sinclar. This one is awesome. This song belongs at the clubs for sure.

Dead And Gone

T.I. and Justin Timberlake, enough said. Odds are that this collaboration is going to produce a chart topper. Benka Styles with his style quickens the tempo of the melody and provides for a much better instrumental. I personally like this song a little bit faster and I think you will too. Enjoy!

Now You See It, Now You Don't

This one's a hit for sure. I have always been a fan of Pitbull's latin feel into Hip-Hop. It just keeps coming! The Jump Smokers provide for the masterting of this track. DJ Uniqx changes up the beat a little bit, and quite honestly makes it even better! He turns it into a real big time club banger. Definately grab this track, because it's on fire. Enjoy!

I See The Future

I was pleasantly surprised when I received this track in my email. This is la Zebra with Into The Future! We have a 19 year old making these fly beats. By the judge of this track, the FUTURE looks promising for him. This Electro-House beat has already got my speakers and subs pissing people off. He has done remixes from Boys Noize to the Clash all the way to Kool and the Gang. Now he producing his own stuff and he is on his way. Enjoy!

Got milk? Mickey Avalon does. Shout out to Boom Boom Chik for this one. After seeing this, I knew I had to post it. This is the electro-funkified version of "My Dick". The Super Milkmen did a great job with this one. I laugh every single time I hear this track played. And now it's only funnier with a dope beat. Enjoy!

Click Click

This next one is an interesting track. It has a bunch of different feels. Of course we have the electric feel that we all know I that love, that MSTRKRFT gives here. It also has a rapping feel with the verses from E-40, the hyphy machine from "The Bay". The instrumentals almost clash so hard that it has a bit of a rock feel to it as well. This is a real European track to say the least. Enjoy!
