Need a gift for a gifted musician?
Spoolwork still has the first tape he ever made with a boombox and a plastic microphone. It’s sixty minutes of jumpy pause-button edits, both sides crammed to the hiss-filled gills with jokes, weird ramblings, experiments in sound, and offhanded a cappella mutations of Kraftwerk and early rap tunes. He was nine. From there the music obsession kept on going, coasting through his teenage skatepunk years, down loose, creaky staircases into damp Midwestern indie basement scenes, and eventually resurfacing in Brooklyn. Now, if he’s not busy inventing cocktails or writing music for films, he’s probably cueing tracks in a DJ booth and making the dance floor bounce.
