A month ago, I got to sit down with James D’Agostino–better known by his stage name DJ Green Lantern–for the second time. I first got to chat with the well-respected Rochester native a little over a year ago, and we talked about everything from the rapid rise of the “EDM” scene to the things you’ll find on his rider.
Last month, however, we spoke a bit more about his tour, new and upcoming music, collaborations and more. It’s always a pleasure to speak with experienced and educated people in this industry, but it’s even more of a pleasure to speak with Lantern about my first love: hip hop. As some may know, this guy has done a lot in the hip hop world from touring with Nas or Eminem to holding it down on the Chapelle’s Show. From hosting mixtapes to touring all over the world, he’s seen enough to deserve his credibility.
