DJ Koolaid comes with dreams of DJing a party at the next Olympics and claims that he has been to another dimension. If you come to PALA Fashion Lounge on any third Thursday, bring your friends and dance to whatever electro he's playing, it becomes Kool and the Gang! Bad joke, fine DJ.
How did you decide on your DJ name? What's your real name?
My name is Sean, My name is DJ Koolaid. Koolaid comes from Electric Kool-aid Acid Test. Although mine has also taken on the meaning of one who has taken the koolaid and seen the crystal light, and danced to the electro nonsense. : |
As the Rapture say, "People don't dance no more, they just stand there like this" - how often do you encounter this?
Well it all has to do with timing I'm sure. When it's not time to dance it's fucking not time to dance! ...But when the time is right~ DANCE
I would say a crowd fully of rowdy, drunk, neon-wearing, boozehounding skallywags that know how to move. Multiply by 10,000.
How do you feel about requests?
I believe it's the DJs JOB to refuse requests. If they accept the request, then they become a tool for the requestee, and then they think they can just play you like a fucking jukebox!
Do you DJ full time? / What do you do outside of DJing?
I DJ part time as a passion, and during my regular hours I am a tile setting apprentice. Go figure.
Where can we find you?
Every third Thursday @ PALA Fashion Lounge, with Knights of Neon @ Branx and online.
How would you describe the usual genre you play?
RAW DIRTY BANGING ELECTRO HOUSE with a splash of electronica.
Vinyl versus laptops versus CDs - what is your take?
I use a laptop - it makes sense for my brain. Darrr. It's out there, might as well adapt.
