A veteran experimental industrial
turntablist/video artist creating barrage collages of big beats and noise, seaming
together genres and generations.
Turntables are breathing, living creatures that take grooves in a record and transforms them into sound. CD and DVD players take a series of symbols and converts them into sound and video. These are the tools of the collage/turntablist/club dj [his genre self-identified as: "Big Beats and Noise"] DJ Hell. Influenced by the entirety of a life of extreme experiential diversity, DJ Hell is a relentless advocate for preserving eclectic musical art and culture, on and off the dance floor, throughout the eclectic musical genre spectrum.
"In his stomping grounds of NYC, Darryl [Hell] manages to not only push the boundaries of electronic music as a creator and manipulator of his own experimental/industrial sound, but also to make changes for the betterment of the community. He works tirelessly to empower people, to raise their awareness of how decisions made by elected officials directly affect them, to expose hypocrisy wherever it is. He speaks out against brutality and injustice, and raises a loud, strong, clear voice denouncing those who threaten to take away our rights to think, to believe and to express ourselves freely." Punketta Doilie - Shelter/Boston
"DJ Hell is so funky that even his favorite vegetable is fresh beets." David Saka
a motivational/inspirational/guiding quote:
"If it is correct, as I believe it is, that a fundamental element of human nature is the need for creative work or creative inquiry, for free creation without the arbitrary limiting effects of coercive institutions, then of course it will follow that a decent society should maximize the possibilities for this fundamental human characteristic to be realized. Now, a federated, decentralized system of free associations incorporating economic as well as social institutions would be what I refer to as 'anarcho-syndicalism.' And it seems to me that it is the appropriate form of social organization for an advanced technological society, in which human beings do not have to be forced into the position of tools, of cogs in a machine." Noam Chomsky
