Hometown: The O.C.

Occupation: Record label guru and DJ

What was your favorite gig? Probably seeing LCD Soundsystem at Randall’s Island last year. Standing on stage and seeing 20,000 people go bananas was surreal. I DJ’d the afterparty tent, which was more like a wedding reception.

What new releases are you stoked on? Free Blood’s Never Hear Surf Music Again, Cut Copy’s In Ghost Colours, and Hercules & Love Affair’s debut album. All shamelessly DFA-related.

Spandex is: TIGHT!

Mp3s are: making me think of a career change.

What’s the cure for the no-dance epidemic? Is that going around? I hope I don’t catch it. I see nothing but people dancing.

What are you working on now? An after-work rooftop BBQ.
