DJ Ca$h money prepares for ‘bananas’ party

DJ Ca$h Money is a long-time spin master. A pioneer of DJ scratching techniques since 1984, Ca$h is considered a godfather of modern deejaying methodology, coining now common techniques such as the ‘transformer scratch’. The Philadelphia native also holds the honour of being the first DJ inducted into the Technics DJ Hall of Fame. In anticipation of his show at Nova Club, Ca$h spoke with Post Weekend about his upcoming trip east

Question: Why have you decided to come to Cambodia? Will you be playing anywhere else in the country or region?

nswer: I am coming to Cambodia because I have some great friends there who I haven’t seen for years. It will be good to catch up with Eddie and Ben [DJ Tech 12]. The last time I was there, the party was bananas! I will have some shows in Indonesia, Singapore, et cetera. I won’t be over there that long on this tour.

Will you be sampling any Cambodian music in your sets?

It’s been quite a long time since I have been there so I haven’t heard any Cambodian music lately. I do remember a strong hip-hop community there. Those young Tiny Toones B-boys and girls dancing were insane. Such a great vibe.

This is not your first time to Cambodia – do you have any favourite restaurants, places or sights here?

I can’t remember any of the restaurants, but I remember the food being very good.

What are some of the big difference in performing in Cambodia compared with America?

Well first of all, you have cows just walking around on the streets. There are so many motorcycles with five-plus people riding on them at the same time. You don’t see stuff like that in the States.

Will you meet any of the local DJs while you’re here, such as DJ Maily?

I hope all my DJ friends come out to see me. It’s been a long time. I’m hearing a lot of good things about Maily. Looking forward to meeting her.

Any tips for up-and-coming DJs here?

Spin what the crowd wants to hear, but also spin what they need to hear. Take a chance on music.

DJ Ca$h Money will be playing at Nova Club, #19 Street 214 on Saturday September 19
