In With Sound, Mark V. Campbell/DJ Grumps created a seven-minute audio journey titled Relations, in which he puts to use a remix aesthetic to bring into conversation the dynamisms of three musical genres: soca, pow wow two step, and roots reggae. Moving between originals, remixes, samples, and original production, Grumps amplifies the relationality at the heart of Double Gazebo, signifying the power of sound to represent immaterial possibilities. This sonic exploration ruptures and relates categories, cultures, and differences as mediated through the technological possibilities of turntables and digital music making.
As DJ Grumps, Mark V. Campbell spent the last two decades as a DJ and the past ten years as a Curator. His mixes and remixes ooze afrosonic life.
