Interview w/Julian Cortez aka Phat Rabbit of Square Pegs [Charlotte NC)

Aloha friends...as many of you know I just wrapped up a really fun show in Charlotte, NC.  As a follow up to that I thought I'd pick up where we left off on last years tour related interviews and catch up with some of the awesome people that bring me around the planet.  Check out the interview of Julian Cortez aka Phat Rabbit of Square Pegs in Charlotte, NC. Interview and words by the one and only Kelly Ross / Agent 137.

These Are The Breaks

Tell me about the beginnings of Square Pegs and how you became a production company:

Square Pegs have been together for the last 2-3 years. I started it with Dat Boy Fletch and we have two other DJs affiliated (Mac & Mad Monk). I made a decision 5 years ago after living in Fayetteville to move to Charlotte. I thought I would be going to breaks shows every weekend and that turned out not to be the case. To make up for that I partnered up with Fletch and started a monthly called "Bump" at Crown Station.

Square Pegs is a different focus on breakbeat a "be there or be square" branding. I have been djing for 25 years now and breaks are my love. We wanted to bring the focus back to breaks because it seemed like every time I went out it it was all house. Even at the house events when someone would drop breaks its so damn funky ALL the girls would start to shake their assses.  There are a lot of big name guys out there playing breaks too. When they pepper it in, it just explodes.

What is the Wes Smith connection?

I have heard about Wes now for a few years now. His progression in the last 2 years has been EXPLODING. Square Pegs had been doing some really greats shows and we decided to move the bookings up a notch. Wes had always been in the conversation because of his diversity. He makes it funky on some stuff, his Punks stuff is super bassy and he knows how to read a crowd. He may take it left or take it right - to me that's a smart DJ/person.

These Are The Breaks 2

What's next for Square Pegs?

June 10th we are bringing in DJ Icey - fortunately, we have been able to reach out to the younger crowd. Icey is notorious for doing that as well - he is still touring to Chicago, Texas, Florida and really all over to big crowds because of his ability to keep current.

Any final thoughts?

I don't like the arrogance of some DJ's/producers, in fact, we have passed on booking a bunch of people because of their arrogance. We booked Wes for a reason and we really appreciate him coming to Charlotte for the Square Pegs show.

The Low Down on my Red Bull India Tour & Related Shenanigans

Wow, what and incredible time.  As many of you know I recently had the opportunity to head for the hills, or the other side of the world in this case, and perform a few shows in India.  When people ask me "How was India?", my best answer so far is "Sensory overload at it's finest". Plate_India2016_FB, Wes Smith, It's Wes Smith Yo, Red Bull, Chennai, New Delhi, Hyderabad, Bangalore, India

Getting into it, first of all, huge thanks to Naveen & team from Red Bull and Guru and team from Counter Culture for making it all happen as well as my good pals Manny & Skip of BlanK for their continued support.

Wes Smith, It's Wes Smith Yo, Red Bull, Chennai, New Delhi, Hyderabad, Bangalore, India

Now then...I had been to India before, once on holiday where I ended up playing a now legendary beach festival in the south which led to coming back as part of the exhibition for the Red Bull Thre3Style competitions, ironically where I met Q-Bert.  This eventually led to my 2016 return.

Wes Smith, It's Wes Smith Yo, Red Bull, Chennai, New Delhi, Hyderabad, Bangalore, India

This time around, the trip included stops in Chennai, New Delhi, Hyderabad & Bangalore.  If you have not been to India, these cities are what I like to call India India vs. say westerner vacation India.  No resorts, no burgers, just soaking up all the Masala Dosa, Idly, Appam, and bottled water I could in 10 days.

Event_2016-03-12_ChennaiPoster, Wes Smith, It's Wes Smith Yo, Red Bull, Chennai, New Delhi, Hyderabad, Bangalore, India

First stop was Chennai, roughly 5 million people.  We should be able to drop some bass there right?  The Leather Bar at The Park was kind enough to make room for the boom, and so we did.  These are a few friends that made the magic happen while I watched the birdie.

Wes Smith, It's Wes Smith Yo, Red Bull, Chennai, New Delhi, Hyderabad, Bangalore, India

Second Stop, New Delhi.  I didn't do a gig here but on the plane ride over, courtesy of Lufthansa I read an article about Hauz Khas Village.  I couldn't resist checking it out so on my down time I spun up for a couple days, met some cool people, and confirmed the hype;)  This is a shot of a really cool colorful building that overlooks the vibrant village that springs to life each night.

Wes Smith, It's Wes Smith Yo, Red Bull, Chennai, New Delhi, Hyderabad, Bangalore, India

Third Stop, Hyderabad.  I played a crazy gig here at The Farm.  Don't let the name or "coffee bar" fool you, this joint is on fire, and the likes of Digweed, Afrojack and more have rolled through in recent times.  A small, ecstatic crowd listened to me for 3+ hours and danced like mad.  When people ask me what it's like, this is it, this is what it's all about.  Video snippet below.

https://youtu.be/jEhOib3nY8I

Final Stop, Bangalore.  Here I played the monster IndieMarch festival promoted by Counter Culture.  5 Stages, Bands, DJs, Producers, Et..Al.  Ironically I played at the Alien Ware arena, which was to ironic considering I have a soundtrack for a video game coming out on PS4, XBox & STEAM in May 2016.  My favorite shot right here.
