Will Have An Asahi
With a decadeâ€™s worth of experience under his belt as a DJ, producer, label owner and radio show host, Andy J aka Sgt Slick has earned the respect of the industry, including an ARIA win.
Running a record label makes you realise...That youâ€™d much rather be sitting in a studio than behind a desk.
When Andy J and Sgt Slick cross paths in the club, the result is... Probably like the scene from â€˜Fight Clubâ€™ where Edward Norton is having a fist fight with himself.
My â€˜98 ARIA for Best Dance Release resides... In a box. I just moved and havenâ€™t unpacked it yet.
DJing at events like Melbourne Fashion Week and the Australian Grand Prix... Is not as much fun as playing at a club or festival.
In 2011 my musical influences are... My friends and production allies. Thereâ€™s some serious bigness coming from producers down here at the moment.
Over the years my DJing style has always... Been about the 2 Es: Entertainment then Education.
I find the best way to handle so many DJ monikers is to... Ditch them! Itâ€™s Sgt Slick all the way from now on.
Working with the guys at Vicious is always... Harmoniousâ€¦ except when you face John Course on the squash court, where it can get violent.
Sgt Slickâ€™s advice for fame-seeking DJs... Fame comes after acclaim.
Before playing a set, I usually... Make bootlegs, re-edits, and drink Asahiâ€™s.
