Queenie does David Ethics and its all marvellous!

Me Pic for GsceneWith DSD in hibernation, Queen Josephine catches up with fellow DJ David Ethics to hear what he’s up to this winter.

Where can we see you playing these days? As DSD is on its break, the best place to find me is at Rebel Rabble – look out for our events at various venues or hear us on Trickstar online radio every Wednesday, 6 – 8pm.

How would you describe your djing style? I love to have a good dance especially if a big group of people join in with me! I’m quite an adaptable DJ as I have a wide taste in music, but when playing out you’ll generally hear big party house tunes and long mixes from me.

What’s your favourite song of all time? I always struggle with this question but I’m going to go with DJ Misjah & DJ Tim Access. A life- changing tune!!!!

Which tune always fills up (or rescues) your dance floor? It really depends on where I’m playing, but for over a year I’ve found Sharam Jey & Kolombo’s Non Stop! never lets me down.

What would be your ultimate dream gig (no holds barred and in an ideal world!!!)? The Zion rebel rave in the cave (Matrix, Reloaded). Not an ideal world but hey!!!

Name a tune you wish you’d never played? When I was a teenager I used to drop some pretty obscure tracks in the middle of a banging set. Once I played ‘Black Lace – Superman’ which I hadn’t heard for years. The humour was lost, and I ended up with a room full of confused ravers swaying uncomfortably. Next question…

Guilty pleasure? It’s got to be Chaz & Dave. I’m instantly transported back to the lounge where we grew up, jumping up and down on the overly distasteful orangey brown 80’s style floral settee with my bother and sisters. More for the nostalgia than anything else.

What’s been your best ever gig? The first time I played in the main room for Good Times in Cambridge – having been a regular there for years it was not only a privilege but a personal goal of mine.

Tell us a secret? I travelled around South America in 2010 with a handful of CDs. A fellow traveller (Jess from Bristol) became my ‘manager’ and convinced various bar and club owners/promoters that I was a big shot DJ looking for venues for part of my South American tour. I ended up DJing in some ‘interesting’ places including ‘Route 36’, La Paz, Bolivia.
