Keegan Kabeary a.k.a. Intern Pete, Sound Guy
Never Known as: DJ ShoNuff
Intern Pete is not just a DJ, he is an experience. He is a state of mind. He is the transporter of minds and souls to an amazing frantic paradise that, while leaving you knackered, strangely also leaves you feeling re-invigorated. At 5ft 11.75in tall and broad-shouldered, with his trademark backwards hat , a chunky ostentatious chain around his neck, and immaculate dress sense (if it was made after 1997, it doesnt go anywhere near him) he makes an imposing figure who commands respect. His confident appearance is matched by his masterful control of the 1’s & 2’s. Before each set he always powers down the previous track and leads the packed dance floor in a show of appreciation for the out-going DJ, before kick-starting his performance into a blaze of visuals, an orchestra of special effects which extracts every quality beat of each track as he begins his show. To watch him DJ is part of the ShoNuff experience. Cocky? Perhaps, but certainly not arrogant, ShoNuff is now in control of the minds and bodies of his audience. A very precise and confident body language gives a visual indication to what he is playing as he acts out each track Yet, he is not dancing; this is something far more emotional. Imagine watching a porn star having hot, rough, yet passionate but dominating sex to a breathless, wailing lover which, in this case, comes in the shape of a mixer and turntables. Forceful, dominant, aggressive yet somehow tender and caring. The visual impact allows your body to further immerse itself in the ecstasy he is submitting you to; your ears alone cannot possibly absorb everything that he is throwing at you. As for his sound, imagine every track as a partially completed canvas. Through the use of effects on the mixing console , Dj ShoNuff adds his own colour, texture and feel as he maximises every beat of every track to create the unique ShoNuff sound. His precision mixing at incalculable speeds is part of the show; as each track mixes in you can positively feel the dance-floor going up a notch to keep up with the frantic and energetic DJ that has them all by the balls. Dj ShoNuff’s elabotate mixes are like him: deliciously hard yet very accessible. And when Nuff makes eye contact with you, even if only be for a second, you get to experience the ultimate unique sensation of him seeking your seal of approval. In that moment you have transcended being a mere audience member, into being part of what will almost certainly be the set of the night. The sheer euphoria you feel is exceptional. And then at the end, breathless, skin tingling and with a grin on your face from ear to ear, you feel as though every drop of energy has been sucked right out of you, just like those few moments after one of the best orgasms of your life.
