Johnny Love Speaks

I asked Johnny Love a few questions as a prelude to his DJ set at Too Much Love tomorrow night. Hopefully we'll be treated to some of his new solo material at First Ave.

As an added bonus, check out this Guns N Bombs mix over at the Fader as a little preview for Saturday.

Who is Johnny Love?

a jetsetting dionysian playboy hustler king from the southside of chicago

When and where did you start DJing?

first party I played was a rave called wonderland in bloomington where a bunch of my then heroes were also djing (delta 9, bio booster, kid entropy, submerge101)

Describe your sound in five words or less.

jacking heavy death bass

Any word on new Guns N Bombs material?

no new gnb material, im focusing all my attention on my solo/collaboration project called deathface, working on tracks with the aforementioned kid entropy (now known as the entro mc), 12th planet, and Noize/Floor Crew (which includes another one of my rave heroes, Angel Alanis)

Five of your favorite tracks to play out lately?

bombaman - look behind you
buraka som sistema - ic19 (deathface rework)
jackbeats - what
guns'n'bombs - riddle of steel (12th planet + Tea Long remix)
ac slater - banger (drop the lime remix)
