It’s Wes Smith Yo @ Burning Man 2017

Yo friends, time to burn;)  After spending 2 weeks with Big Imagination building a 747 Jumbo Jet with some of the most awesome people on the planet…the gates are open for another year of stellar fun and music.  Buckle your seatbelt and put up your tray tables for the next leg of the magic carpet ride.  Here’s where you can find me in Black Rock City for the 2017 shenanigans.  Oh, and I am camped out with Big Imagination @ 2:30/G (camp street H/Boing Drive), swing by and look for the Yo Fish;)  See you in the Dust!

The Wes Smith Variety ShYo Episode #33 w/ Special Guest Jeff Olsen (Dot Diggler)

This week on the Wes Smith Variety ShYo we have a very special guest, Jeff Olsen aka Dot Diggler. The force is strong with this one, from the famed Slut Garden at Burning Man and now his Fraktured tour, Dot is character that we look forward to chatting with this week.

The Variety ShYo is based in San Diego, CA. I talk with real people I like that I’ve met through the music business, about real things, in real time, with no edits.

 

Stay classy, Yo!

It’s Wes Smith Yo! Burning Man 2015 Tour @ Slut Garden

Dot Diggler is next for my “It’s Wes Smith at Burning Man Yo!” interviews.  Dot resides at Slut Garden during his stay in the dust. This is a camp that I remember well from last year – it’s colorful, fun and the music was always on point. Getting to see Wes play up on that stage is going to be a sight to see with the crowd dressed up in their space wear. BOOM!

Slut Garden is certainly an interesting name – tell me about Slut Garden and what you all are about:

We are the ultimate party on the playa and are a real interactive camp. Whether it is the shadow boxes, platforms, The Wet Spot (bar), dome or clothing exchange (Slutty Seconds). We have people who go out in the crowd to recruit girls to dance in the shadow boxes and we aim to never have them empty of sexy silhouettes dancing.

What’s your role for Slut Garden?

I’m in charge of staging build scaffolding, setting up the lighting and am a main residency DJ. I am based out of Seattle but the founding members and campers are mainly from Portland and Montana.

That’s great – how did you get involved with Slut Garden?

This is my second year with Slut Garden, after my first burn I played a hip hop set with my best friend Matt (Pressha) for a hip hop happy hour. Slut Garden was having some sound issues so I jumped under the sound booth and fixed what was wrong. They were appreciative and they asked me to come back to play. I started with an empty crowd and once I was done there was a huge crowd. I was offered to play a fundraiser in Seattle and it just exploded from there. I don’t rep a crew or a label when it comes to Slut Garden…so I promo the heck outta it and get the word out about them.

Speaking of promo – tell me about your biggest music events/parties:

Wednesday: Sluts In Space when Wes Smith is playing, it’s an astronaut/space themed event.

Thursday: Booty Wonderland with Deekline and Dot Diggler ++

Friday: Satan’s Schoolgirls that DJ Dan hosting with Donald Glaude ++

You were the one that booked Wes. How do you know about Wes Smith all the way in Seattle?

I asked Wes if he would be down to play a set – he is one of my favorite producers. I found his tracks awhile back and the tracks went off really well at the burn one of my good friends Justin (Blacklist) Alson also plays a lot of his tunes out as well.

Any advice to aspiring DJs/producers out there going to Burning Man?

It’s good to make connections in this industry it is very hard if you do not. Everyone is a dj/producers/etc so you really have to set yourself apart from the others.

Tell me why you do all of this and keep coming back to Burning Man:

One of the reasons why I love Burning Man is because breaks are reigning supreme (parallel with house). I have been a breaks DJ for 15 years ever since I heard Icey’s Essential Mix and then started getting into Baby Anne, Fixx, Volume, Huda Hudia, Deeklline, Plump DJs, Freestylers and Stanton Warriors. I have been blessed to play with most of them except Deekline and that comes true this year.

Also, I have never met such a hard-working group so focused on their goal. It’s a camp full of Alphas and surprisingly-  it really works. The founder of Slut Garden, Brad, is the shit. He is a superb leader of people. It’s why the camp has become as awesome as it is and it keeps getting bigger and bigger each year.

Check out the Dot Diggler mix I have been bumpin’in my speakers this week:

This year’s Burn is going to be interesting and I can’t wait to meet you and see/hear all the awesome on that beautiful stage surrounded by those shadow box dancers – thank you sir, see you in the dust!
