Jake Goldsmith on Why Every Single DJ Should Know How to Dance

Jake Goldsmith is one funny dude. Whenever we get to speak with the 30-year-old selector and member of the Rebel Disco collective, he tends to be quick with quips or some sort of wittiness that always makes for a lively interview. Such was the case when Up on the Sun had a chat with Goldsmith recently for this week's DJ Dossier, which - as you'll read - is filled with plenty of wisecracks about his lack of dancing skills and a secret crush on Ryan Gosling.

This same spirit of fun tends to flow through both his sets and those of every member of Rebel Disco during their Wednesday night Push Push affair at Bar Smith. "It means you can dance and sing with a group of DJs that don't take things too seriously, we try to have fun," Goldsmith says. "Playing fun music for fun times. No aggro nonsense."
