DJ Name: Goldilox
Hometown: Small town in Maine near Canada.
Trademark saying or philosophy toward your music life:
I have a sound I want others to hear, my sound is still the same
though no matter what styles are popular. It's a beat that flows
through me, comes from me, and will never cease. I also feel that
a dj should know about sound, and how to work a sound system.
The job of a dj is more than just playing records. You're the
captain, at the wheel of the ship that everybody is dancing in.
I'm also involved in party throwing as well, and very much involved
in the scene. I think that's important.

Most annoying thing that you have experienced from clubbers:
A hand on the shoulder or back will get my friendly attention
if I can't see someone in a crowd. Pulling hair or clothes, jabbing,
pinching, slapping, and punching is a common greeting these days.
I'm getting better about it, but I don't like having conversations
when I am dj'ing. I'll hang out when I am done!
Most suprisingly nice thing that you have had happen from club
goers: One person gave me a giant quartz rock after a set
which I still have. Also when a new friend of mine showed up just
to give me a record he just released and catch my set. Another
time the crowd started chanting "Goldie better than Oakie"
when Oakenfold and I were playing at the same time at different
camps at Burning Man.
If there was a hurricane and an earthquake headed for Frisco
and you had to quickly grab one or more records what would it/they
be? I would grab my gig record box. It would stop me from
flying away in the hurricane and I could still play the afterparty.
