Holding a well rounded career behind the turn tables DJ Lawrence Sim had a chance to sit down with us to talk a bit more about current projects and the spirit of disco, funk, & soul. Here is what became of that session.

MP: What's up with this Dance Reaction thing?

LS: It's about the dance....or more specifically, dancing with lots of people who are in tuned to the same vibe...there's something very primal & tribal about that.The first half of the night between 9-11pm is a record swap/ sale, anyone can bring their records, again its just getting people together & sharing good vibes. From 11 onwards, the dancefloor opens up. The music can range from slow, spacey, dubby to a faster techno sound really depends on the mood of the night. In general, I'll try to create a fun loving vibe thats funky & soulful.

MP: Tell me about yourself?

LS: I'm just a music fan... I love all kinds of music, dancing, playing music to people, seeing them cut loose & have a good time.

MP: What brought you to Montreal?

LS: Montreal has always been a favorite, I had lots of good memories here over the years prior to living here. There's a nice sense of creativity n' playfulness that runs through this city... the summer's are amazing. People are open & welcoming, I've only lived here for a little over a year and already I've met some great people.

MP: What's music to you?

LS: Music to me... thats a huge question... but a lot of it comes down to a feeling, whether I feel it or not. That's the gauge I use when I'm buying records. I also like to use the analogy of food to describe music; depending on the music you're listening to, it can give you energy or drain your energy... and to some extent, your are what you listen to... With internet these days it's easy to have too much music, I try to digest & absorb the music well before letting it out.
