"Cross Species Platform" by TK Lawrence
Since your 2010 release on Nurvous, your alias has changed from Ter Khan to TK Lawrence. What about your style as a DJ and your vision of dance music?
TK LAWRENCE: I've definitely been playing a lot more vinyl and a wider variety of genres. As far as my vision of dance music, I guess it's similar in that perspective as I've been listening to records that have elements from other music, such jazz, hip hop, and so on. It brings me back to that sample and crate digging mentality that remains instilled in me from my youth. I like things that are less straightforward and make you ask, How is this a dance track?
THEE MIKE B: That party was the seed of so many things. For example, one time circa 2008, I played Classixx's demo for "I'll Get You" way before anyone knew about them. I posted that set, and that week I had dozens of Myspace messages asking what it was. Then AM started playing it at prime time, and ultimately we invited Classixx to come play. They killed it. Matt Colon, a promoter and Aoki's manager, signed them and represents them to this day. That record ultimately came out on Kitsune, and in my opinion, Classixx are currently one of the foremost live acts in dance music. Banana Split was also the birthplace of LMFAO, so... you're welcome world.
