Pushing Culture | DJ Criddy

What music inspires you the most?

Soul and Funk inspire me the most because that's what I grew up on having parents that came up in the 70's. That's what I mostly play in my headphones when I'm not DJ'ing. Right behind soul and funk however would be Bay Hyphy and a lot from the Dirty South!

If you could have dinner with any musician dead or alive who would it be and why?

Kanye West. So I can figure out WTF he on.

Why do you think music is important?

Music is important because of the power it possesses. You can feel music. Imagine how terrible movies would be without the score. That's how important music is to our lives.

What does music mean to you?

Music is a lifeline for me in many ways. I teach my 3 year old son basic concepts in song. I basically use music in every chore or task to keep me going. I use it when I want to chill out. It can be a stimulant or a depressant but music is a vessel that can take you just about anywhere you want to go. The beauty of DJ'ing is that you can pile everyone in the party into your hoopty and make them go with you.
