how did it all start



Charlie, how did you become the Boogie Master ?
Ehm .. I cant help but boogie .. its what I need to do. Groove with it. Groove with the universe. Inside it, Around it, within it. you know when you close your eyes? when I do, I have like .. ehm ..  like white swirls of great colours amongst others. Green Dots right now that all follow each other in some sort of syncopated rhythm.. its quite … ehmm .. unreal … No No No .. not unreal .. I mean, its made of the same fabric as the universe. We are all in a sense put together in a conglomeration of great and wondrous colours.
How did it all begin?
When U were a little Boy and decided 2 b a Boogie Master what was ur first Step ?
…. My first Step … I guess .. ooh Yeah .. relax my mind .. and dance around .. Jumping around .. I imagine as a child when you hear something whatever it maybe .. you move around with it .. depending on the sound, you have to move around. Probably not conscious of it .. like a cat .. whenever I observe a cat like now I’m watching, or sitting Drea’s cat I can see that they are tripping in some other dimension. I know they are hearing things that we are not .. because their ears tweek out .. I imagine that babies .. and adults .. have this reaction as well.

Everyone grooves to there own frequency.. you just cant  sit around. As a rule everyone reacts in one way or another and you don’t know exactly how or why you just move accordingly to whatever sound it is that you perceive. In one way or another it is all part of this great universal dance party. It maybe subconscious but I believe that it’s happening. A universal super boogie.
In my room .. couldn’t go outside in Canada in the winter, way to cold.. my parents being hippies had a really nice record collection .. when cd’s came out everyone was dumping their old records for very little money and I would buy them and go to my room and being an insomniac, listen to music and boogie around, and eventually finding LSD also helped … I got a drum kit and I just started playing that .. if I didn’t drum I would just a imagine music .. and dance .. like when I dance now .. all the sounds .. bass and drums and high hats .. So much to get into .. so then I just tweaked the fuck out .. Lots of records .. in flux of great LSD .. made my own you know .. sort of life. It was from my babysitters brother that I picked up a really great drum kit, started smoking weed .. and just began  drumming, drumming, drumming.. and there was so much great music around .. so I could just dance and dance … .. Yeah .. that’s my story .. ;)
How did your mama react to the fact that u wanted to be a Boogie Master ?
My mother didn’t know that I didn’t know what sleep was. As a result I would close my eyes and listen to the environment .. which of course always encompasses some sort of music .. everything is music .. we are it , it is us .

Why did you choose Phangan to do your Boogie Mastering ?
The music here when I first arrived was geared to boogie, still is. I came for the music.
Last night it was because Anika played … Really really goooood. Yaaarh … ( and then he applauses ) The sound was ehh .. well .. fat … and .. trippy. We had gotten hold of these really Really .. ah .. ehhm .well you know. You know when you do a Heavy Heavy dose of mushrooms and think your gonna barf 4 a while? And your just coming up like u know. Ummm… Every now and then I feel like I’m twisting inside, the music helps to alleviate the situation. Fun and heavy, light and airy .. was what I was experiencing with Anika’s music .. not so much bass backstage. However really heavy out front.. I didn’t take very much. It was really just perfect and then I boogied through it, just Boogie through it, That apply’s to life in general, Be high and Bouncy .. Boogie around it’s a form of meditation that helps us all in whatever situation that one might find themselves. 
in the hammock What is Ur Boogie Master Theory?
The universe is based on sound that travels trough dimensions. Because the universe is all sound. We travel within it … or around it.. obviously attached in what ever dimension we might be traveling within we are cast out in this  constant vibration.. Hehee .We are sound and so is everything, It is just .. a part of us and we are a part of it .. all of it.. 
U can look at it if you close your eyes … When I close my eyes.. Especially when I close my eyes.. No distractions just sound … 
Who r ur Boogie Master heroes?
SuperBoogie which is also very freaky.. 68 to 71 parliament funkadelic after Bootsy Collins left the James Brown Collective. Then later the Jbs. Back again with Bootsie on the bass. Super fucking … heavy funk. Super groovelasticprophunkstification .It is the mothership connection .. super fucking groovy music that would later morph with other influences to become other various styles of music what I mostly prefer to groove to like Psy-Trance for instance. Funk would later lend a hand in the production of disco and later with the help of electronica become house music, other variations of course would become electronic on a whole and branch out into the multitude of electronic music that we now have today. Psychedelic Trance tends to be my music of choice for dance and meditation for obvious reasons.
What is a Boogie Master to you?
Anyone and everyone who digs it and grooves with it whatever it may be. We are sound .. so .. Boogie!
When did u first arrive to Phangan ?
1996 .. then I went to Taiwan 2 teach .. went back t o Canada .. stuck for 4 years .. acquired another degree.. and came back here and have been ever since, with occasional trips elsewhere.
At last .. what would u like to say to all the Practicing Boogie Masters out there ?
Keep Your Ears Wide open, Your Mind Free and Your Ass will follow.. Super Boogie!
