DJ $TOCKER is awkward-winning international Internet figure, a blurry celluloid who fights demons like mom. One of the biggest influences for Mr. DJ $TOCKER are money, avant-garde music and cinema like short movie “Outer Space”. His sounds lead to some kind of paranoia of unpretentious eyeless angel. Some say he is just a meditational cocktail of runny nose in this chaotic modern shopping culture.
DJ $TOCKER - in terms of music - is not about something to get scared of. It is more about getting confused and wondering what those uncomfortable compositions are trying to say. But maybe they do not mean anything at all. It is more about the exploration of the “sense and nonsense”, where the significant dissonance between the spectator and events creates a huge disruption of the ability to be sucked in. The dark side of the stock is used as a resistance to the normal music rules, conception of this medium and more importantly – comprehension of human factor as “non-creative”.
DJ $TOCKER’s latest EP is dedicated for the political madness partly created over social media. This confusion is reflected in his creative process, which reminds a situation where dozen opened tabs with looped audio sounds have no ability to be closed. You are trapped and you are already dead.
Here some quotes of famous people about Mr. DJ $TOCKER:
“He inspires me”
“My coffee never tasted better”
— A big fan
“Really helped to fight my demons”
