About DJ MP3PO:
Born in Brooklyn, NY in body….and Atlanta, GA in spirit.
As a human and as a DJ robot-music-contraption I feel I am always growing up, but as a child my mom almost exclusively bombarded me with Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, Etta James, Otis Redding, Percy Sledge, The Temptations, Michael Jackson, The Beatles, Joseph Niles and The Merrymen, Bob Marley, Michael McDonald, Gladys Knight, The Commodores, Linda Ronstadt, The Police, Donna Summer, Barry White, John Coltrane, Kenny Rogers, The Bee Gees, Wilson Pickett, Queen, Fleetwood Mac, Prince, Madonna, Al Jarreau, Bruce Springsteen, Thelma Houston, Cameo, Whitney Houston, Elvis Costello, and Byron Lee and The Dragonaires….can’t forget them. Exclusively bombarded. It wasn’t until my later musical matriculation that I found artists such as The Beastie Boys, A Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, Bel Biv Devoe, Bobby Brown, Daft Punk, Radiohead, Outkast, Mariah Carey, Nas, Alicia Keyes, Camp Lo, Notorious B.I.G, Dave Matthews Band, Bloc Party, Weezer, Bright Eyes, Lauryn Hill, PM Dawn, Beck, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Built To Spill, Black Star, Jay-Z, The Pharcyde, The Indigo Girls, LCD Soundsystem, The White Stripes, Hall and Oates, Arcade Fire, Liz Phair, The X-ray Specs, The Pixies, They Might Be Giants, Bjork, N.E.R.D., The Specials, and Depeche Mode….to name a modest few.
MP3PO DJ’d his first gig in the spring of 1993. End of the school year at his best friend John Morehead’s basement in Lilburn, GA. He had a CD player and a tape deck, plus a working understanding of the graphic EQ and pause button. No idea how to mix but undeniable ability to read the crowd and know good music when he heard it. Coincidentally, he had his first kiss that day too while listening to Nine Inch Nails.
If DJ MP3PO had to pick one song that would get him on the dance floor, it’s Jamiroquai’s “Canned Heat”. MP3PO thinks this song is the father of the nu-disco movement. Disco, funk, and pop got together at a speakeasy, drank some absinthe, and decided to take each other home. His honorable mention goes to Prince’s “KISS”. Sexiness in audio form.
