Podcast 92: Rapping with DJ T.
- Words: Jennifer Marston
We know DJ T. for many things, his no-nonsense mixing skills, albums like 2004's Boogie Playground, and his long-standing affiliation to Berlin's Get Physical imprint among them. His influences, however, don't stop with minimal, 4/4 beats, and according to recent press, there was a time when the man born Thomas Koch's musical tastes revolved more around rap than techno. Hell, we even got him to make us an exclusive mix of some meaningful tracks in his career to prove that. At just under an hour, Koch's mix takes us on an electro-funk trip through some of the most important tracks of his life.
XLR8R also sat down with DJ T. to go deeper on the mix, his influences, and his new album, The Inner Jukebox. Peep that here while you're checking out the podcast.
