Wow, that was a particularly uninspired heading for a blog post about one of the 'Nix's only superstars,DJ Radar
. Astute longtime readers may already have realized that I've long been a homey of Radar's as well as a fan; I once took him back to my home state of Alaska where we drove nine hours on cliff-side roads in a January blizzard to get to a gig in Fairbanks on time. As Radar'sConcerto for Turntable
and turntable/strings projects have enveloped his professional life over the past few years (you can read about ithere

at Next in Scottsdale, along with Robbie Rob, Senbad, Maji, Benjamin Cutswell & more. If you've been reading about the classical/strings shit for the past few years and aren't quite sure how he originally made his bones in the turntablist world (Spin once named him and former partner Z-Trip amongst the five best DJ's in the world), here's an educational track for you off of theBomb!
