Korn singer struggles to DJ
Korn frontman Jonathan Davis finds DJing "hard".
Although he is best known for singing in the nu-metal band, the musician is also a budding DJ, but finds it much harder because of "all of the math".
He said: "Dude, it's so hard. When I get done doing a set, I'm just drained. I'm matching BPMs and I'm counting out bars when drops hit.
"All of this math is going on in my head the whole time I'm doing my set. So, when I'm done, I'm exhausted."
Although the 'Freak on a Leash' rocker admits he gets tips from friends on his DJ sets and making electronic music, he finds the simplicity of normal instruments a relief afterwards.
He added to website ARTISTdirect.com: "Hanging out with those cats doing the Korn stuff, they're starting to show me how to create sounds, and it's a bitch. It's very difficult, it makes my head hurt, and I have to walk away from the computer and decompress every couple hours. Then I go back.
"When I pick up a guitar, I can play it. You have one sound, if you want to change it, you've got pedals. To make this, you have to create the sound first and then apply it to the song and create again."Posted on 12 Apr 2011 08:30 to category : Music News
