DJ Ill-Legal? on Which Songs He'd Spin While the World Ends

Categories: DJ Dossier

What if the dead rise from their graves?
Zombie Apocalype by Vaski would be a fitting choice, or the Walking Dead theme song remix by Cryptex.

If the Large Hadron Collider starts turning the world inside out?
Liquid Stranger, "Meltdown."

What's your favorite doomsday song?
Word on the street is that Skrillex is collaborating with Kanye West for his next album, and -- while I haven't heard it yet -- if that isn't a distinct sign of the apocalypse, I don't know what is.

If you could decide how the world should end, what would you pick?
I'm gonna have to go with zombie stripper apocalypse, sounds much more appealing than most other options. Plus I've got way more zombie-themed tunes to give an appropriate send off to that effect.

The Facebook page for Boomsday states that "we have a great tactical advantage" being on Bar Smith's rooftop. How handy are you at taking out zombies with a firearm? After all, you're listed on the flyer as a "hired gun."
I've spent some time at the shooting range and I'm pretty accurate with a 9mm, plus I've had my share of fights growing up playing hockey. I'm confident that I could hold my own.

Do you think y'all could barricade the front doors of Bar Smith well enough?
There's a significant amount of heavy bench seating and extra speaker cabinets hiding out in the back, that'd do the trick.

If a zombie makes it through all that, which one of your fellow DJs would you shove towards the creature while making a break for it?
That's harsh. I love Bigie and I'd never willingly give him up to the zombie bastard, but I'm pretty sure I could outrun the guy.

Do you have special plans for Friday, being that it could be your final day on earth?
I'll probably go play hockey in the morning, procrastinate on Facebook for a while, enjoy a delicious (possibly last) meal at Luke's of Chicago, download and sort some tunes for my set, and spend some quality time with my friends.

What would your last words be?
Oh man, that's deep. Everything that comes to mind feels inappropriate for print; you'll just have to show up to find out.

Foul Play's Boomsday kicks off at 9 p.m. on Friday at Bar Smith. Admission is free until 10:30 p.m.
