Run Tune: Exclusive interview with DJ Child

Words by DJ Theory

Oakland's DJ Child

DJ Child is the hardest-working man in the reggae biz that you’ve never heard of–if you rely on mainstream channels for your music discovery, that is. As the mind behind Oakland-based Project Groundation, he is a pioneer on several levels; of a new mixtape format that condenses two or three LPs worth of original material into a coherent product with a central theme, of a particular musical vision that combines rasta-inflected reggae (think Sizzla) and fight the power gangster rap (think Dead Prez), and a post-digital DIY indie approach to music that encompasses everything from designing your own graphics to growing your own food. Appropriately, when Child and LARGE UP correspondent and music dude DJ Theory sat down to chop it up, they covered everything from dwarf banana trees to prison documentaries and the reggae scene in Mali.
