The North Quarter‘s press secretary, Dan Stezo is back for a mix under his moniker Gokil System, for this edition of the WireVision Mixshow. Undoubtedly Asia’s most prolific Drum & Bass MC from the Netherlands now residing in Hong Kong, Dan is no stranger to sound system culture.
Coppin’ Hip-Hop tapes since 1988, he slowly embraced more musical styles and genres with a jazzy edge and soulful aesthetic. All the while progressing as an MC on the international Drum & Bass scene with Lenzman and the extended NQ family.
‘In this mix tension and intention are central, as opposed to drum beat and tempo. In Hong Kong when you go hiking there is this ‘twin peaks’ trial. You know; one hill up and down, then another again. Gokil Gokil. Blessings to all.’ – Dan Stezo
