A studio session flows better with musical accompaniment. I can't understate the importance of the appropriate soundtrack for a physically creative release. Researching tracks consumed ever more of my time, and the odd playlist was just begging to be radically reworked. Other artists I knew followed this trait and my new medium soon found new audiences. DJ Dogtags was born out of the compulsion to soundtrack myself toward artistic motivation. This piece features an oversized 24" vinyl record as I wanted my first release to be twice as formidable than a standard issue. The sleeve is a delectable array of twisted aluminium that's made up of a rejected proposal for an airport VIP lounge. Possibly thrown out because it's visually reminiscent of aviation wreckage. No matter, as it forms a delectable skin undulating over a bulbous spurt that's irresistible not to touch. Although impossible to play, I now wish I could find an oversized deck to hear what it would sound like. This brain tickle now inspires the next set remix, meaning the cross-genre creative loop has been closed to begin again.
