RadioFlag and DJs are quickly becoming an “interweb” match made in heaven, as more and more masters of the turntable join the “Rebirth of The Radio Star” movement. One DJ in particular is an eclectic and pronounced DJ at Santa Clara University, and has become a power-player on RadioFlag. He calls himself DJ Scrawny. Scrawny plays live and streams fully through the RadioFlag app during his show Electronic Hi-Jinks on Sundays from 5-8pm PST on KSCU. He brings a transfusion of new and old music that he mixes live in the studio, and without the use of a dj mixer. Scrawny’s mixes are composed of beats that put you on an invigorating electronica listening roller coaster, from sweet melodies that relax you to tough beats that make you feel invincible.
There are many DJs that can create a playlist and push play, but there’s a difference when each song is hand selected, can locate your every emotion, and pull it through the music’s rhythm from beginning to end. Whether you’re in your car, at the office, or chillin’ out in your dorm room, DJ Scrawny is what the doctor ordered for this winter season. Every dose must be taken once a week, and must be taken in full, from 5-8pm on. It doesn’t matter whether or not you’re “into” this genre in particular; it just takes one listen and you’ll be hooked. It isn’t a type of song that gets you, or selection of beats, but it’s a road trip to the unknown that must be taken at least once, with no inhibitions or preconceived notions. I myself chose to tune in because RadioFlag’s users have been flagging and raving about his mixes, and once I did I didn’t look back. There’s a listener’s intuition that tells you yes or no after the first 10 seconds, and for me, it was a definite yes. DJ Scrawny is versatile in his music choice to say the least. When I heard him for the first time, I caught myself daydreaming about what it’d be like to look out into the universe, and suddenly transitioned to imagining what it would be like jumping around at a rave.
From peaceful to raging, from simple to intense, these mixes are anything but “scrawny”. DJ Scrawny’s set will either settle your mood or get you going depending on what YOU, the listener wants, because he himself is logged onto his RadioFlag account as @Scrawny, where he stays interactive, communicating with his listeners. He takes requests, shares his playlist for the night, asks what his listeners want to hear more of, and puts it into action right there on the air in real time. Make sure to keep your ears open for a song called “Chainsaw”, which Scrawny throws into every episode like clockwork.
His actions speak louder than my words, and there’s only one way to find out what I’ve been raving about.
