Interview: Krafty Kuts & Deekline Discuss Serious Bass Business


What's better than an interview with one DJing legend? How about an interview with two DJing legends! OK, so what's even better than an interview with two DJing legends? How about one where they interview each other, reminiscing about Bulgarian train station raves, musical inspirations and Russian police batons! That's our sort of interview!

Krafty Kuts and Deekline are headlining the massive upcoming London Boat Party and Afterparty, and Funk and Filth will be taking over Room 2 as well, so make sure you get your tickets before they go! Read on to see what the two funky fellas had to say to each other . . .

Deekline >>>> Krafty Kuts

Deekline: What would you say is unique about your DJ style?

Krafty Kuts: I am extremely busy behind the decks and there are not many other DJs who use four CDJs the way I do. I like to play many genres and styles but breaks is my main flavour. I always make sure I have some new treats to drop and keep my sets fresh and different every time I play. I use a lot of acapellas and incorporate some scratching into my sets to add a bit of a unique angle.

Deekline: What first inspired you to want to become a DJ?

Krafty Kuts: I watched a DMC world final one year and I thought: “You what, that is what I wanna do one day". I was never quite as good as DJs such as Mixmaster Mike, Jazzy Jeff, Cash Money, Q Bert etc – but they definitely helped me add a certain edge to my DJ style. I love watching DJs cutting up two records, creating new rhythms and styles and being so creative. It is simply amazing when I watch Jazzy Jeff do this … he still blows me away every time.

Deekline: What five dance tunes changed your life?

Krafty Kuts: The Prodigy – Smack My Bitch Up, Fatboy Slim – Rockafella Skank, Pendulum – Masochist VIP / The Prodigy – Voodoo People (Pendulum Remix), Leftfield – Phat Planet, Azzido Da Bass – Doom’s Night.

Deekline: Who are your favourite five DJs?

Krafty Kuts: In no particular order, ASkillz, Jazzy Jeff, Cash Money, Q Bert, Fatboy Slim.



Krafty Kuts >>>> Deekline

Krafty Kuts: What advice would you give to up and coming DJs to give their sets more impact and originality?

Deekline: Learn more about the music you are playing. Look for some clever intros to start your set. Make some jingles to drop when you are at a special event. Always look for new tunes so you switch it up at any given time. Learn how to scratch and do clever stuff with your music rather than just mix tunes. And first and foremost don’t be afraid to interact with the crowd and show your enthusiasm. It will enhance your set for sure.

Krafty Kuts: So where did you get the name Deekline and how long have you been DJing and producing under that name?

Deekline: It was a suggestion from a friend, and it came from the fact that I used to play a lot of electro and miami bass, with a bit of southern hip hop. It meant girls got down low to the music, which is where the idea for “decline” or “Deekline” came from. I’ve had it since 1996, maybe even ’94 which is 20 years. I used to DJ at youth centres and on pirate radio stations as a teenager. I was the gawky white kid and it was quite a struggle to get validated by the other kids, but I think my passion for the music eventually came through …

Krafty Kuts: Where is your favourite place to play and where is your favourite place to go?

Deekline: My favourite places are Bulgaria and Hungary, especially Budapest, because I love the spas and the architecture there. In Bulgaria I get looked after very well. I love the coast and the fact that everything is so cheap there. The people are beautiful, and back in my single days I have to admit I had a bit of a thing for Bulgarian girls. I’ve been going there since about 1998 or 1999 and I have some great friends there.

Krafty Kuts: Where does your fascination with and passion for all things booty come from?

Deekline: It comes from Miami Bass. I love 808s, scratching, hydraulics and rap: all those things come together in Miami Bass. I have been into it since the ’90s going as far back as Tag Team’s There It Is. It was a very commercial sound in the early days, but I’ve always gravitated towards the underground side of it which mixed with electro.



Krafty Kuts: What has been the worst experience and best experience of your career so far?

Deekline: The worst experience: I haven’t had many really bad ones, but because I make many different genres of music I’ve turned up to gigs and been heckled by the odd hardcore fan who just wants to hear jungle, when I’ve got tunes to play that runs the whole gamut from jungle to garage and breakbeat. They don’t care about the rest of the crowd; they just want to hear what they want to hear. They will stand in front of you and ask the same question 10 times, which gets pretty irritating after a while.

There was also one time in Norway at a snowboarding festival when the power cut out, and I was left there just having started my set with no sound. The crowd took it upon themselves to start throwing throwing beer at me. Fortunately, just as it started to look like things were going to get pretty hairy (not to mention wet), the sound came back on and they realised I was a pretty decent DJ! I have also seen the Russian police get out their batons out at a club in St Petersburg called The Tunnel. It’s inevitable I guess, that if you travel the world enough and visit so many countries these things will eventually happen.

Generally, though, I’ve been pretty lucky with most of my gigs. I think the best one was in Bulgaria with Ed Solo and the Ragga Twins in about 2006. The promoter had somehow managed to hire a train station the size of victoria and put on a rave there. There must have been about 5,000 people on site and they were going nuts. It was a bit over-full and I’m sure a lot of regulations were broken that night.

Krafty Kuts: What is next for Deekline and what are you looking forward to?

Deekline: At the moment I’m doing a lot of different varieties of music. I’m, working with some new vocalists I’m very excited about. I caught up with a friend whose managing some fantastic artists and we have spent some time in the studio.

I’m taking a lead in the studio far more these days, whereas in the past I have worked with engineers. I’m feeling the call to move back to my bass and garage roots, though you’ll still hear me putting out plenty of breakbeat records. I’m just having a lot of fun and I feel like I’m able to express myself a lot more now.

As far as upcoming gigs go, I’m really excited about our summer boat party, and the chance to work with you on an event. Our Hot Cakes boat parties have always done really well, been packed and had a great atmosphere.

It’s a great opportunity to meet all the fans and everyone who has supported us for time. The summer party is always a guaranteed roadblock, and one of my favourite gigs of the year.
