Welcome to the Dj Statex podcast! I'm just a regular, blue collar DJ where I discuss DJ/turntablism and portablist topics in the Seattle/Pacific Northwest area and as well as topics related to travel, outdoors, Venture Tales and more. My podcast discussions are more like informal conversations that are unscripted and candid.
On this episode, David shares his experiences on a party bus, hooking up with women, getting ‘married’ and more during Carnaval in the Brazilian towns of Recife and Olinda.
The music at the beginning of the segment is called "Voltei Recife" (Translation: I returned to Recife) from the Brazilian artist, Alceu Valença. David saw this artist live during his time there. This song was remixed and performed by DJ Statex.
