‘Since the moment he spun his first record, Damian Lazarus’s mission has been clear and urgent: to blow away the mediocre; to seek out and celebrate the energetic, the important, the new. Always rebelling, always going places.’ Or so reads Damian’s bio on the website of his dance label, Crosstown Rebels. If ‘rebelling’ means wearing a trendy hat, growing a beard and scowling in photos, then Damian is perhaps the most rebellious person we know. The fact that he happens to be a talented DJ is an added bonus.
Damian Lazarus plays Trilogy on Friday 27.
