“Love of the music should be the driving force of any producer,performer or DJ. Everything else stems from that core, that love. With that love, sampling can become a method of tasteful assembly, collage, as opposed to a creative crutch, plagiarism. Using this same understanding openly & respectfully, can turn DJing into spiritual participation. It can turn a few hours of selection into essential history, necessary listening through movement.”(Theo Parrish)
