Guest DJ: Jimi Hey
Title: ADDDJ (Pause Mix '96) aka I Wanna Get My Dick Sucked.

This is a 25-minute "pause mix" on a double cassette deck in 1996 by Jimi Hey. He says, "This was me trying to live out fantasies of being a DJ in the Invisibl Skratch Piklz or The X-ecutioners. I harbored secret fantasies of DJing at raves but I didn't know how to scratch, nor could I afford a sampler. So instead I did this using only the pause button to make fake samples/loops. No samplers were used in the making of this tape. Source material taken from various LP's, cassettes, and a few CD's. This is for those who remember that brief moment in time in Los Angeles when some of us had one foot in the Jabberjaw/hardcore punk world and the other in the rave scene."

Jimi Hey was a member of the Ariel Pink band for a couple years, also playing with Beachwood Sparks, Rapture, Devendra Bandhart, and a ton of other bands with no need for aspiring Skratch Piklz DJs. No word on whether he got that blow job, but these days he DJs at Black Boar in Eagle Rock CA and plays in BI, who released a 7-inch recently on Mexican Summer.
