DJ Spin Laden is one part of Mexican/ Texan Art & Music collective Cul N Sweet. As well as flying in the hottest DJ's to play at the hottest night in Texas the boys make some pretty damn good jackin' and fidgity mixtapes.
How long have you been DJing and what brought about your interest in it??
I started mixing about 2 years ago after I heard some productions by Switch and Trevor Loveys, it got me interested in house music. But now I play anything from jackin house, fidget, baltimore club & ghettotech, pretty much anything that will make the kids jack their bodies non stop.
You're also a member of CulNSweet, who are the other members and what do you guys do?
There is 5 members in CulNSweet- DJ Teenage Wolf, Mario Barrio, Cory Blaine, DJ Orion and me. We all DJ and organize a monthly party in Austin TX- we bring our favorite DJs from around the globe to come jam with us, the last people we had the privilege to had were: DJ fame, Scott Cooper, Congorock, Juiceboxxx, Dre Skull.
Future plans include Jakz in monterrey, mexico on dec 6. Zombie Disco Squad in Austin, Texas on December 13! and DJ Rampage for early next year! So stay tuned. We also run our blog tejanobounce.blogspot.com
Where did the name CulNSweet come from and what does it mean?
I think Mario Barrio thought of it while getting blzd one day, it simply means Cul N Sweet :p
Do you have a residency anywhere or play at regular events?
We have a residency at this club called Moods where we DJ every Thursday! plus the CulNSweet party's we try to throw every month, for those we try to find a new location for each party!
Which DJs/acts have you played alongside at previous events?
DJ assault, DJ fame, Congorock, Scott Cooper, Bang Gang DJs, Dre Skull, Juiceboxxx, Yo Majesty and Egyptrixxx are some of them.
Do you produce any material or remix other artist's tracks as well as Dj?
So far I've only made bootlegs of some tracks but I only keep them to myself to play out live. I recently just started producing some bass heavy stuff that I will be posting up soon! So watch outtt :p
