Matt Earp AKA Kid Kameleon
SVR: Tell us about your gig. How did you get started? How long have you been spinning?
Kid Kamelon: I’ve been DJing for 15 years. I play because there’s too much good music out there not to share it.
SVR: Who are your major influences?
SVR: What’s your ultimate direction for your band? Are you seeking fame and fortune in the music business?
Kid Kamelon: I hope to be a conduit between the music makers/performers I love and opportunities (through labels and through technology) to expose their music to the widest number of people.
SVR: What is your day job?
SVR: How does your music influence your work or vice versa?
Kid Kamelon: Music is a structured succesion of data, and the best data is a musical succession of structure.
SVR: Why is music education important?
Kid Kamelon: Because it helps those who are passionate about music find their calling.
SVR: What was your own experience learning music as a kid? Who flipped that switch in your brain?
Kid Kamelon: My folks always encouraged it, between piano, trombone, and bass lessons. But I’d have to give props to Beth Coleman and Howard Goldkrand of SoundLab, my first true DJ/Arts/Events crew in New York, for showing me that it was possible to do music the way you wanted for a living, even if you couldn’t exactly define what that way was.
