Swedish techno star Cari Lekebusch chatted to Skrufff this week about living and DJing in
There are always bar fights because people get stupidly drunk here and puke all over the streets, said Cari, Though I know places in the UK where its the same, I guess its a Scandinavian and British thing; to drink a lot of alcohol and get messy.
Caris most recent brush with trouble came as he took a beer from the cooler set aside for DJs as he was about to spin in a club in Stockholm, to the displeasure of a local steroid dude, he said.
I was just about to play and was going through my records in my case when this guy came up to me and said put the beer back, you cant just steal the DJs beer. I said Im one of the DJs, Im just about to start but there was something wrong with him, he was really aggressive and he tried to punch me.
I was quick enough to duck and avoid being hammered. I dont know if I can thank my kung fu skills for that but they certainly helped. He threw a punch at me and its no problem to avoid one punch so I did that, then he stopped because he realised that I really was a DJ, he chuckled. That was in
Fellow Swedish producer John Dahlack, whos just 20, told Skrufff he sees it quite differently, however, declaring, I think
Im not a big drinker but I have a lot of friends who are and when I go out I see a lot of heavily drunk people but I dont see it as a big problem, its the same in every big city.
I have never experienced fighting either in clubs or outside on the streets either, he added.
