DJ Neil Armstrong Ate Robot Sushi, Went Fishing Inside A Tokyo Restaurant

Epic Instagrammer just got back from Japan. Whoa.
Apr 21, 2014 4:00 pm

DJ Neil Armstrong needs no introduction to hip-hop enthusiasts. He was Jay-Z's touring DJ for all of 2008 and 2009 has shared the stage with the likes of Rihanna, Beyonce, Kanye West, Young Jeezy and Timbaland in a storied career. Neil recently took over our Instagram during a four-week trip to Asia and it turns out that music is not his only flavor. We caught up to discuss how Japan's culinary scene is much more diverse than you might expect. Read on.

JES Unleashes The Beet, Spins A Crab Cake

Globetrotting DJ creates a fitter, healthier tour
Jan 16, 2014 4:00 pm

The secret weapon to world-traveling DJ JES' longevity: mastery of healthy living habits in a world famous for no sleep, tons of booze, etc. and 3 a.m. pizza. Not that 3 a.m. pizza is totally out of the question. Depriving a New Yorker of pizza is about as unhealthy as it gets. Plus, she made Vibe's top 10 female DJs of 2013, motivated us to get more sleep and loaned us an awesome recipe for healthy crab cakes. Thanks, JES!

Give Datsik All Your Bacon And He'll Play Harder

Rising star DJ talks pig candy, tequila, tacos

I love the smell of bacon frying to dubstep in the morning, as does Troy Beetles, better known on-stage as Datsik. The young Canadian native who calls LA's Los Feliz neighborhood home (citing "tacos" and "the party") has been churning out remixes, performing globally at clubs and festivals, and building up an enormous following since 2008.

Sander Van Doorn Will Have The Tuna Sashimi

Chart-topping DJ also hoards mayo. Hey, he's Dutch.

Superstar DJ Sander van Doorn is consistently ranked among the top DJs in the world. From his award-winning debut album, Supernaturalistic, to the never-ending global EDM festivals he headlines, it's clear that van Doorn's career knows no boundaries. We sat down before his set at last weekend's Electric Zoo festival to talk about his latest non-music-related project: his palate. Pass the chopsticks, please.

Scoping out the food scene at NYC's premiere electronic music festival may not seem like a priority, but if you can't even temporarily remove whichever part of your costume is preventing you from eating, there's going to be a problem. Going to the fair? Wanna meet up for a falafel or can of champagne? Hit me up, we'll talk/yell shop and I'll spill the secrets of the DJs I'm interviewing...for a price. 

Good Food, Rocks: 5 Sandwiches Invented By The Bands We're Listening To

Boy howdy, do bands love talking about sandwiches!
Aug 26, 2013 11:00 am

Food Republic's Good Food, Rocks series takes you inside the life of hungry musicians on the run (or on the stay — we look in their fridges all the time). They travel, they eat, they have great stories, and I personally always ask this question at the end of the interview: "You just invented a sandwich called (name of latest album or single). What's in it?"

DJ Paul Oakenfold: Fully Qualified Chef

The world-famous DJ/producer makes a Sunday roast
Apr 30, 2013 2:01 pm

What's better than being a world-famous DJ? A world-famous DJ who can throw down like crazy in the kitchen (and has a really solid cooking playlist). I asked Paul Oakenfold the details on having two very popular and useful skills at his disposal.
