IZM: As a DJ living in NYC, what inspires and shapes your current sound?
GETLIVE: NYC's underground scenes always inspire. Mix that up that with current audience taste, as well as what I feel is needed to be put out to the people musically.
IZM: Do you still prefer the velvet touch of vinyl when you spin, and can you tell us your 5 most treasured pieces of wax?
GETLIVE: Vinyl still? Yes for sure.
5 of my fave pieces of wax would be:
- 1. Low End Theory Album
- 2. Watch the Throne Album
- 3. N**** in Paris 45
- 4. Nirvana - Smells Like Teen Spirit 45
- 5. Any 90s House Classic that I have on vinyl
IZM: What's different about an LA or say, Atlanta crowd compared to a New York crowd?
GETLIVE: Different perspectives for sure. There's a lot of history that still prevails when it comes to clubs and nightlife culture in NYC.
IZM: How do you deal with peeps who want to re-edit your playlist?
GETLIVE: They can copy the recipe but they can't duplicate the sauce.
IZM: What is usually the hottest point of the night?
GETLIVE: Primetime now is between midnight and 2 a.m., but in the good ol' days of NYC nightlife, 2am was primetime.
IZM: What takes it all down to dawn after the midnight heat/beats period?
GETLIVE: A cooling mix of vibes and nostalgia.
IZM: Ok, thanks for your time. Now get some sleep!
