I am DJ Not Applicable, a DJ/Producer from MA. I play mostly breaks with some house and trance thrown in. I mostly produce tracks that are in a more progressive breakbeat style in nature. I love a lot of old school tracks and include them in my sets. I DJ to allow my interaction with the world. I am an introvert so playing on radio stations live as well as having a weekly breakbeat podcast and also producing tracks. This allows me to not only to have complete creative control over my musical selection, but allows me to play all the time. I am constantly evolving with every show. I am here to create.
My name “Not Applicable” was chosen in the idea as if I was filling out an application form and decided to apply anonymously. I, as a music selector, attempt to deliver an experience which speaks from the heart of me. It’s not really from me, the music is coming through me.
I believe in creative freedom and the belief that I can create something that sounds totally different from the last piece of music/mix I manifested. The ability not to be shoved into a corner and expected an iteration of what I have already birthed into the world is true freedom.
It is believed that creating your own sound and be identifiable this way to success. I think it is bullshit. “Imitation is suicide” as Emerson says. Pablo Picaso said ” One begins to copy oneself, and to copy oneself is more dangerous than to copy others. It leads to sterility.” Recreating your sound and constantly trying new sounds to improve your skill and output is essential to my way of DJing and Producing. If you are not fucking up, you are not trying.
