Introducing “DJ Prime”…But we just call him “Prime” for short!!
“Prime” does not need much of an introduction really. Veteran Night Club Mp3 Pusher /Radio DJ in NYC / fake wrestling fanatic and a pretty swell guy. Prime has been pumping out Mashup’s & Bootlegs for some time now, and has had some success with “So Fly” featuring Oh Snap!! Released on “Bomb Squad Presents Records” The Australian Party Animals “Bombs Aways” Label! “So Fly” saw major radio spins in (Miami/Chicago/Detroit/NYC/ Cali) with over 300 media base spins domestically. Not bad Eh?? Considering no Domestic Label Support in the States….
“Prime” is now attacking the Big Room Sound…Suitably starting it with “Big Room Bass” on Radikal Records and this will also be the name of the NEW Compilation Mix on Radikal that will feature the likes of Ayah Mayar /Bombs Away/Dannic /Djs From Marrs / Marco V / Oh Snap!! And many more!!

What are you guys listening to these days?
SKETCH: Miley Cyrus! [Laughs] No, not really. I’ve been listening to Savant, heaps. He’s not actually a savant, but he’s really, really cool! He’s just so…
TOMMY: Complex! He’s so melodic, just everything about him is brilliant.
S: He gets a bit of a Skrillex comparison because of the vocal cuts, but he’s just like, really, really complex. There are a lot of like, melodies within his structure that are just amazing.
T: Especially for electronic music, like, you usually get it a lot simpler, but he’s good.
S: Some of them have like, entire orchestral productions! A favorite one is Fat Cat Shuffle.
T: I think that’s off his first album.
S: Yeah…yeah! It’s an older one, but still so great.
T: So great.
S: So, yeah…I’d say Savant. And Australian-wise, we do a lot of work with him; his name’s Kones. He just did the preview mix for um…Robin Thicke? The Blurred Lines one? It was just a bootleg, but it’s gone crazy. I think it got like, 20 million views or something in a couple of weeks, so yeah, he’s really cool. He’s one of my good mates, but all of his stuff is so bumpy, like…super, super fun, so he’s good. He keeps with new stuff. Like, he just released this new track, This Is How Fkn Babies Are Made, um…and we just add it to our set, we just can’t get enough of it. So, it’s cool.
What is – in addition to Miley Cyrus, of course – are your guilty pleasures?
T: I like dark chocolate.
S: He does like dark chocolate.
S: But like, so do many other people.
T: I like it SO. MUCH.
S: Musically, mine is 80s hair metal. I just…cannot, CANNOT get enough. Man! We’re actually halfway through a cover of Final Countdown. Big, big trumpet solos, it’s gonna be great. We’ve been working on it for like, two years, because you…you can’t release a song like that unless you nail it. But, I love it. 80′s hair metal is just like, the best! That, and like, epic power ballads. Yeah, just…ALL the time. If people would listen to it, we’d produce something like that.
T: We’re probably not talented enough.
S: We would try.
S: Me, I love it…just heaps. I wanna try to get someone like David Bowie or someone on a track one day. We’re gonna get, like, our people to hit up his people and try and do a comeback tour, like an um…like an EDM track with one of the big guys.
T: …That’s a great idea!
S: It IS a great idea! I just came up with that like…right now, so you’ve got the scoop!
