DJ Detromental / DJ
Hey there, DJ Detromental here (DM for short). I’ve got myself a little radio show called the Slacker Initiative. Every week I set aside a few hours to share some cool tunes with ya’ll while I make an ass of myself on the interwebs because that’s pretty much how I multitask.
What can you expect to hear on my show? I definitely enjoy atypical instrumentation, I’m a big fan of brass and folk instruments in my metal, I’ve been known to enjoy Chiptunes as well, and I love to support the VGM scene (video game music). I prefer melodies and funky bass lines over super technical guitar shredding most of the time, but am constantly surprising myself at what new thing I learned to enjoy while I wasn’t paying attention. I’m also a sucker for cover songs, particularly the “Where the crap did that come from?” ones.
I don’t do genres, so here is a smattering of bands you will eventually hear on The Slacker Initiative if you listen regularly: Diablo Swing Orchestra, Pryapisme, öOoOoOoOoOo, Eluveitie, Finntroll, In The Presence of Wolves, Helion Prime, Master Sword, The Megas, Thank You Scientist, Opeth, and Amorphis. And Jethro Tull. (If I ever meet Ian Anderson I will ask him about his cats and show him pictures of mine.)
Other than that, I’m a nerd. If it’s geeky I either like it or I haven’t tried it yet (or I tried it and it wasn’t for me but more power to you.) I love roleplaying games (table top and videogame) going to conventions like Gen Con, and binge-watching shows like Doctor Who, Supernatural, iZombie, and Orphan Black. I’ve been doing the radio thing regularly since October of 2016, and I will try to keep doing it as long as my Dad keeps listening 🙂
