Boddika, DJ veteran spoke about the scene and underground in recent interview with Datatransmission.
We all know that there are so many events and that term underground is being misinterpreted, and here are Boddika’s thought on this matter:
“Look at what’s happened to DJing” he begins. “I can’t say I agree with people who claim to be DJs but don’t mix!? I toured America when I was 20/21 with records and I learned to DJ properly because that’s what a DJ is, someone who spins records. Now, I haven’t spun a record in a club for about ten years but I came up doing that, I earned my stripes doing that, I toured doing that. I’m a DJ and I’ll rip any club when I mix. Each track, depending on what program it was written in, is generally a little bit different timing wise from program to program, which means I still have to concentrate on what I’m doing on the CDJ’s and that’s important to me. I’d feel like I was robbing people if I was up there not doing anything but that’s just me. There are plenty of people who, through clever management are enjoying huge success but it’s part of the industry these days. I just it see it for what it is.”
“If you look at it from the perspective of a veteran like myself, you wonder if anyone actually gives a fuck about the underground anymore – I still give a fuck about the underground,” Boddika continues, now in full flow. “I could have done so many more things than I have done but I chose to keep it real. The are people who claim to be underground DJs and producers who have zillions of followers on social media and I’m like, what the fuck? That’s the biggest contradiction I’ve ever heard. The electronic music scene is a very different game these days, but thankfully there are a lot of good people, likeminded people, that aren’t just out for money or just pretending not to be just in it for the money. That’s where the best music comes from, its always been like that. Money is the route of all evil. Standard.”
