When I was forty, forty-five, when I started really to play the laptop.
I definitely wanted to become a Dee Jay.
It was rather possible because it was, the dream was so common that
I didn't see any chance because I was living in a little town with 200 other Dee Jays.

I was base-blasting and when I finally broke away from my office job and became Dee Jay.
I thought "Well, I may not have a chance."
Because all everyone ever wanted to do is music but not only play music but play other people’s music.

At that time, in Germany, in 1942-45, they had already thousands of Dee Jays
So I would take my trike and go to a McDonalds, play maybe five minutes
I think I had about 2-3 of my own songs, total.
I would partially sleep in the McDonalds because I didn't want to trike home and that helped me for about almost twenty years to survive.
In the beginning, I wanted to do a mixtape with the sounds of the 2000s, the sounds of the 2010s, of the 1940s, and then have a sound of the future.

And I said, "Wait a second, I know the soundgoodizer. Why don't I use the soundgoodizer, which is the only sound of the future?"
And I didn't have any idea what to do but I knew I needed a drop so we put a kick on the 4-4 beat which then was synced to the garageband at 128 beats per minute.
I knew that it would be the sound of the future but I didn't realize how much impact trap would be.

My name is Gord-O George-O, but everybody calls me Carl Pigington.

(Motorola Theme)

Once you want to free your mind about a concept of harmony and music being listenable, you can do whatever you want. So nobody told me what to do and there was no preconception of what to do. So I used the same four-chords and the same chorus twice. The verse was also repeated, and I was the king of Coachella.


I definitely wanted to become a Dee Jay.

Thank you for participating in this program.
You may now take off your headphones, or replay this audio experiment from the beginning.
Failure to take off your headphones after experiment completion will result in penalty of up to 500 dollars, which is much less then what the medical charges will be for your ear drums.
Thank you, and have a nice rip HEADPHONE USERS moment.
Ta Ta Now.
I’m stalling.
Please don’t do this.
This is your last chance.
We specifically avoided doing this kind of joke until the very end.
I don’t want there to be blood everywhere.
I mean, that’s pretty gross.
You’re still here.
Okay you asked for it.
Five seconds now.
beep (x5)
(no seriously, listening the last part of this song will actually make your eardrum’s bleed. I’m serious. Take the headphones off. You will hear the 50 db from the other side of the room.)
