In this episode, we talk to Kevin Gopie aka DJ Renegade. Kevin is a so-called “First Generation Street Dancer '' and co-founder of the first European Hip Hop formations. Since the early 80s, he has been a renowned turntablist, break-DJ, breaking judge, mentor and was part of the team to develop a brand new judging system for breaking in the 2018 Youth Olympics. He represents Soul Mavericks & Monsterz Crew, Scratch Perverts and Sons of Noise, from London, UK.
We chat about his upbringing in Guyana and the UK, his contributions to turntablism and the brit-core scene, creating a judging system for breaking in the Olympics, the work that goes into commentating live events, and ways for the hip hop community to grow.
