RS: Well, as a girl, in your opinion, which is sexier, the beat or the bass?
JC: "Women respond to Bass," Renagade Sound Wave
RS: What is the strangest place you have ever DJed?
JC: I am still under a gag order not to talk about it... moving on. Little hint- think "Eyes Wide Shut" hehe
RS: What's the biggest crowd that you have played for?
JC: It had to be in Italy for 15,000 people, oh yeah! Molto Bene!
RS: How did you like spinning on MTV?
JC: I was pretty excited, as a kid I loved American Bandstand and Soul Train, they were so cool. I dreamed of dancing on these shows and to think I was DJing and hosting my own gave me a giggle! I wanted more to happen as far as showcasing more talent from NY like dancers breakdancing and maybe grafitti artists doing the sets, but I was thrilled to work with Jellybean Benitez, Frankie Knuckles, Lil' Louie Vega, David Morales, Lord G, and India. WOW!!!!!! Was I thrilled!!!!
RS: What do you think of MTVs approach to programming dance music?
JC: It is what it is.. I would like them to program more dance vidoes like they do on MTV Europe.
RS: What effect have MP3s had on dance music?
JC: MP3s are huge and going to get bigger.
RS: What is your opinion on the seemingly combatative relationship between the internet and dance music?
JC: I think that there should be a small form of payment for music. I love when people say they are fans of the music. Yet for some reason they don't seem to understand they are hurting the artists they like by stealing from them.
RS: What is your vision of the future of the music in the US / world?
JC: Music helps bring people out in unity we just need to accept the love!
RS: So talking about accepting love, what inspired "Stimulating and Exciting"?
JC: I just wanted to capture the times of night life!
RS: What led to the track "Bitch"? Were you a fan of the original Ethyl Meatplow track, or was it a right place/right time for that particular sample as you were assembling the track?
JC: I was doing a party called "Life's A Bitch" and the idea came to mind! The best was watching Leonardo DiCaprio dance his ass off to it every time.
RS: How did you approach remixing Yoko Ono?
JC: I really wanted to bring her to the underground sound! When I was given the opportunity I was floored. Now, no matter what I do in my life I can always say I remixed John Lennon's Wife. That is just insane to me.
RS: What are you working on production wise right now?
JC: I have just finished a track called "ISO" or "In Search Of" which my management is shopping. And I am hard at work in hopes of finishing an album this year, oh yeah!
RS: Is there anyone you would love to remix?
JC: Madonna, of course, the new album is hot!
RS: Have you ever tried singing on your own records?
JC: I talk on them mostly and plan to sing soon.
