B. Calloway - Interview & DJ Mix

For the fifth show of the year The Anxious Beat had the great pleasure of talking (face 2 face) to a real Detroit gem - electrofunk pro, DJ and ninja producer B. Calloway.  We start off with one of Calloway’s latest releases on wax -  acid ghetto and fu**-everything-anthem Party N Bullshit (Dirty Mix, Various  - Elevated Jit Vol. 2 EP/FTP), also heard in Jensen Interceptor’s dope ass set at last years Boiler Room x Glitch Festival. Calloway begins his story by expressing his love for all different styles of music - the Jeopardy theme song and just about everything else, as long as it sounds good. We get to learn more about his beginnings - starting out messing around with a couple of tape decks and a record player in his moms basement in his early teens, discovering jit and how he met Ade' Mango Henderson Mainor (Mr. De’ of Electrofunk Records) at his favorite record store, who later came to take him under his wing. Our conversation also touches on the meaning behind the freaky-bass and multi-transitional track Workout and Stack Paper from Calloway’s 3000 B.C. EP, record store vendettas, tap dancing grace of Fred Astaire  and Sammy Davis Jr. and the philosophy behind “not looking up to, nor down on nobody” and much much more. Calloway then treats us to an hour+ dance mix of reckless mayhem, so take a moment, let loose, enjoy and just “dance like ain’t nobody lookin’…”
