El Blog de Eduardo Navas se ha convertido en uno de los referentes de la “socialización” del remix. Aquí hace una entrevista muy interesante al polifacético filósofo-dj Dj Spooky. Habla sobre todo de Creation Rebel, su último disco, una remezcla (muy divertida por otro lado) de los archivos del sello jamaicano Trojan. La entrevista la puedes leer completa enhttp://remixtheory.net/?p=343
EN: Do you consider yourself as a type of postmodern historian who retraces things that may have been missed by people in the past? If so, what is your aim in revising history–is a remixer a historian of sorts?
DJS: Nah, I’d say the role of the dj is something like a cultural historian, or archivist, but basically it’s about play with memory. My next album is called “The Invisible Hand” and it’s about the early forces of globalization that influenced how migrations occurred throughout the last couple of centuries and made the way we live today possible with music. Indians in Jamaica! Chinese people in Jamaica! Africans in India! Palestinian hip hop! Israeli hip hop! Icelandic techno! Brazilian balle funk! Angolan kuduru! That’s the kind of stuff I’m listening to now. My book “Sound Unbound” looks at this kind of hybridity in sound and in art. I guess it’s a collection of essays as “mix tape.” There’s nothing post modern about it. It’s just the way we live today.
