Mini interview with DJ Wisk:
Copydbwoy: Loving what you do mate. I partially introduced you to my listeners. Could you tell, is there any story behind your name?
DJ Wisk: Used to do Graffiti when I was younger, tried to think of a word / name that was original which is hard because most you think of have been used or are being used by other writers. I thought of wisk because of the letters and it was nice to write & piece. This then just became my nickname and no one really called me by my real name anymore so when I started DJing it was an easy choice especially when Wisk means to mix / blend, so it just worked.
Copydbwoy: Wisk is a good word, indeed. It sounds and looks great.
Copydbwoy: Tell about your DJ process.
DJ Wisk: I generally play what I like, I don't like to be pigeon holed and as you will see from this set I can change things up quiet easily, switching from house to garage to grime to bassline etc. I would say at the moment my sets mainly consist of house & garage. Garage being all types, old, new, 4x4, 2 step, bassline, speed garage the lot. I will do the odd Drum & Bass set if needed, or even an hour of UB40 vinyl after a few drinks with DJ Beat, haha!
DJ Wisk: I obviously don't agree with sync button DJs! I agree you have to move with the times which is why I choose to use Serato, Vinyl or CD (which ever is available), this way I can still switch to vinyl if needed.
Copydbwoy: Your selections and mixing skills are reasons to support and recommend you to friends. Each second of your mixes are pure pleasure. It's probably a Birmingham thing how you switch between moods. You easily jump from sweet vocal track to bassline heavy stricrly Birmingham flavored, angry stuff. And vice versa.
Copydbwoy: Could you name any of your influences?
DJ Wisk: My influences are obviously the main man himself DJ EZ who has been supporting mine and Beats remix of 'All I do' pretty much every show for a month and a half on Kiss100. Other DJs / Producers I'd say Jason Kaye, Todd Edwards, Martin Larner, Norris Windross, Karl Brown, MJ Cole, Matt Jam Lamont Mike ruff cut Lloyd, Rossi B & Luca, Tuff Culture, Cause & Affect, & way too many more to list sorry!
Copydbwoy: Man is legend. Great to hear that!
Copydbwoy: Do you have any goals as artist?
DJ Wisk: Just keep progressing, more bookings (abroad too!), more time in the studio and more plays of my tracks on the big stations.
Copydbwoy: I'm dreaming of doing a night. You'll be the first whom I'll book. If you not gonna be scared of going to Ukraine, haha!
DJ Wisk: Big up Copydboy for having my mix on this podcast and for pushing UKG and the people / DJs behind the new wave. Shout to my Birmingham crew, watch this space...
