Questions by Matej Devčić (Muzika.hr)
When did you first get involved with music and when did you discover hip hop?
I started out playing drums at around seven years old. Eventually when I got into Junior High School I played in a jazz band at school. My best friend Chris Cooke played bass in that class and he introduced me to Hip Hop through cassettes mainly. He would always pop something in that caught my ear.
What made you start DJ-ing?
That same friend Chris, had an uncle that would DJ for us and make us mix tapes to break to. One day I saw him mix doubles of Malcolm McClarren and I was hooked. I needed to learn how to DJ. I eventually bought myself some belt drive turntables in my last year of Junior High. By the time I got to High School I was ready to DJ for people. I linked up with 2 other DJ’s in High School and we formed Bum Rush Productions and started to DJ all the house parties every weekend.
When did you first start using toys in a DJ set and how much important is to experiment with music?
It was just that….an experiment. I started to use one toy in my dj routines with Jurassic 5. I was just kind of testing the waters as to see if the toys could travel well but more importantly perform well in front of large crowds. Once the group disbanded in 2006, I decided to see how filling the entire stage with musical toys would sound and look. Seems to work well for both me and the crowd I guess. So from time to time I pull them out depending on the size of the stage and the promoter’s vision. They take up a lot of room.

James Dewitt Yancey (February 7, 1974 – February 10, 2006), better known by the stage names J Dilla and Jay Dee, was an American record producer and rapper who emerged from the mid-1990s underground hip hop scene in Detroit, Michigan as one third of the acclaimed music group Slum Village. According to his obituary at NPR, he “was one of the music industry’s most influential hip-hop artists”, working with big-name acts including A Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, Janet Jackson, Busta Rhymes, Erykah Badu, The Roots, The Pharcyde, Common, Dwele and many others.

Na već dobro nam poznatu muzičku pozadinu koju je sklepao svima nam poznati Marco Polo za stvar ˝ Situations˝ mladi Fucktor je iskoristio za svoju novu stvar. Stvar nosi naziv ˝Situacija˝ baš kao i originalna traka s koje je odlučio posuditi beat i dat mu novu dimenziju. Stvar je miksao i masterirao sam Legatti koji aranžira većinu stvari Shelter bengalica. Za cover se potrudila Orla , a kako zvuči krajnji produkt nastao miješanjem Fucktora i Marca Pola možete provjeriti posjećivanjem Shelter Team You Tube kanala.
Nakon spota za stvari ˝Nagrdi me ¨ u kojoj se prisjećamo ranopreminulog trećeg člana Prti Bee Gee grupacije, Davora Bobića Moskrija, kroz niz snimki koje do sada nismo imali priliku vidjeti, na red je došao i drugi spot s ˝Petarde˝. Kao drugu stvar koju će vizualizirati u vidu spota dečki su se odlučili za stvar ˝Nije lako˝ , koju su odlučili napraviti u totalno opušteno i humorističnom stilu, baš onako kako i priliči Prtijevcima. Benganje i smijeh neće izostati, a za gledanje istog dovoljno je posjetiti njihov YouTube kanal i u pozitivnom tonu nastaviti dan. Za snimanje kadrova ove Prti priče bili su zaduženi: Mario Jurišić, Kovi, Flo Rider, a sve snimljene kadrove u smislenu priču spojili su sami Prtijevci uz pomoć Igora Stojanovića Giše.
