Rob Swift knows all about evolution and its conceptual cousin, revolution—whether it's the spontaneous kind that sparks radical change, or the vinyl-based kind that occurs at 33-1/3 revolutions – per - minute (and variations thereof). And for a cat like Swift—who has worked with everyone from Linkin Park to the Red Hot Chili Peppers to Mike Patton to Herbie Hancock to Blue Man Group—truly forward-thinking, revolutionary music just seems to come naturally, and on some occasions, at a cost. DJs must adapt, and in this high-speed information era, that means expanding your scope of vision from beyond your instrument to new expressive vehicles.

Co- motivator of the 90’s Timberland boots and army fatigues movement, Evil Dee sealed his fate in hip hop history beginning with one of the most noted classic hip hop albums, Black Moon’s Enta Da Stage.
