The BTK Identity

For those who don’t know, BTK a.k.a. Identity has been knocking out solid and heavy dancefloor music for quite some time. A skilled producer and an even more prolific DJ, this young man can be found wandering the raves of Europe with reckless abandon, leaving a path of dancefloor devastation in his wake. I had the pleasure of playing alongside him in Ostrava, Czech Republic on Christmas day, and believe me, this guy knows how to slap up a club full of eager ravers. Anyway, enough sucking on his penis, here’s a short interview and a sweet free mp3 courtesy of BTK / Identity…
