Years DJing: Around 1996, I slowly started piecing together a proper DJ setup, and have been DJing regularly around Portland for 18 years or so. My first "break" was a residency at the now-defunct 1201 Club.
Genre: Dub, downbeats, bass, hip-hop, loungecore, boom-bap.
Craziest gig: I played the Red Dress party some years ago. I was set up "in-between" dance floor areas, so they were going for a purgatory vibe. I was dressed as a priest, on a platform looking down on hundreds of sloppy men and women in red dresses. Many blessings were given that night.
Don't ever ask me to play…: What is currently spinning on the turntable. And no, you can't freestyle over this tune.
NEXT GIG: Saltfeend spins at Gravitate at Spare Room, 4830 NE 42nd Ave., on Thursday, March 16. 9 pm.
