You may have noticed yesterday that we included two events in our weekend link round-up that are beyond Albany borders. Both events have several things in common, including stacked billings and a fine gentleman named Distal.
Distal is a producer and DJ based out of Atlanta and also runs the label Embassy Recordings. In anticipation of our #vacay this weekend, we caught up with him for an interview in advance of his playing out at this month’s TURRBOTAXÂ® and at Cabaloosa’s in New Paltz.

In the game since: Been DJing dance music since 2000, been producing since 2007.
Tell us a little bit about your background in music and how you got into producing and DJing? I grew up loving music. I was in band in middle school and a year or so in high school playing trumpet. Around that time I definitely was enjoying listening and absorbing rather than playing.
