He may take a while, though, before he blesses us with any new material. A few months back, he returned from a U.K. trip to find all of the gear in his LA studio including tracks for his follow-up to 2000's Movement in Still Life stolen. Since he had made his name on the rave scene by eschewing spinning vinyl in favor of performing live with banks of keyboards and drum machines, the theft threw a monkey wrench into his gigging schedule. But ever the optimist, BT picked up DJing so he could continue performing.
For this gig, he'll be manning the turntables for one of the first times in his career, but don't expect the usual routine of a statuesque DJ calmly putting on records. BT has always been unbelievably hyperactive onstage, spastically punching on machines and throwing his fists into the air. So rest assured that he's concocted some equally compelling stage show for his DJ appearances. And be sure to stretch well before this one. When BT gets excited, you can't help but thrash around like an ADD kid, too.
