Talking Dallas DJ Culture With DJ Jay Clipp. Plus: A Defense Of Millenials.

Welcome to Burning Bridges, a biweekly Central Track podcast wherein local commentator Rodney Blu waxes poetic on the day's most pressing issues and interviews with a prominent player in the arts scene, all over a guest mix from a roster of several local selectors. It's fast, it's fresh and it's polarizing. Check out past episodes here.

On this week's episode of Burning Bridges, I offer my perspective on everyone's favorite generation to wax and wane about: The Millennials. Are we as entitled, bratty and self-absorbed as disgruntled old white guys and Hollywood depictions like Project X would have you believe? Or is there more to these youngsters than their vines and their snapchats and their celebrity obsessions? I offer my take and, as always, encourage yours.

I also sit down with venerable selector DJ Jay Clipp and learn about his rise in the craft and in the community — from New York to Jackson, Mississippi, and ultimately to Dallas. During our talk, he offers up some of the realest insight on what it means to be a turntablist, all the while detailing his efforts in working with aspiring DJs at his new DJ school, Keep Spinning DJ Academy.

This is all done to the soundtrack of classic old-school and emerging new-school jams, curated by one of Clipp's most promising young protégés, Cambio. Tune in and give us your thoughts.
