Asian Dan Interview: DJ Rampage

1. Who is RAMPAGE?

Rampage is one person, Eddie is my real name. I am a DJ/producer/remixer from the southside of Chicago.

2. What are some of your influences? What was your first musical memory?

Some of my influences include lots of old Chicago house, ghetto house, anything with lots of bass, 90s rave techno, video games from Sega and Nintendo and many old horror films.
My first musical memory would be hearing my family listen to lots of different music from disco to R&B to salsa to oldies to freestyle to house and so on. That’s what basically made me love music.

3. How you describe your music/DJ-style? Explain your production process.

My music is basically what I like to listen to and I don’t try to stay in one certain genre. What I mostly play in my DJ sets are tracks that me and my boys from ghetto division produce or remix. I also tend to play around 130 bpm and mix all types of house and underground dance music. I’ll even play sets at slower bpms like disco and reggae and also fast bpms like juke and bassline/dubstep. My production process is basically all software at the moment from a pretty cheap pc haha. I use Reason & Recycle for producing/remixing and Cool Edit Pro/Acid Pro/Sound Forge for my mixtapes.

4. How does it feel to be part of the Chicago dance scene, such a prolific and important city to dance music? Any big Chicago acts that you feel are gonna put Chicago back on the map?

Chicago is a great city and I love it. We have so much culture and great music but I feel we need more unity in having massive events like we did in the 90s. We need more underground dance music to be played on the radio and at mainstream clubs. I’m tired of hearing crappy pop/rap music everywhere. We’re a house music city and we need to keep it like that. There’s a lot of hidden talent in Chicago and I think Ghetto Division is definitely part of that. Maddjazz, Rob Threezy, Charlie Glitch, Moonman & D-51 are not only good friends of mine but have so much talent and the world needs to know it. A few others that are making some noise from Chicago are Flosstradamus, Black Holes, Potty mouth, Movement music, Content, DJ Bam Bam, Willy Joy, Starter Djs, Fat Kids, SixPoint DJs and Gant-man just to name a few.

5. What are you top 5 dance tracks?

1: Kano – I’m Ready
2: Dbx – Phreak
3: High Powered Boys – Hoes Get Down
4: Paul Johnson – Feel my MF Bass
5: Pineapples – Come on Closer
