    DJ Jester the Filipino Fist

    Probably the first artisan to utilize both the VeggieTales theme and a child YouTuber rapping “Ms. Jackson” – hip-hop-led innocence/insanity reigns on DJ Jester the Filipino Fist’s DJ JESTER IS FOR THE CHILDREN, inspired by playing KUTX’s kid-friendly Rock the Park. The Austinite writes on Bandcamp that the tape “essentially is a children’s mix. But like the new Barbie movie it’s not really for kids.” After flying through Harry Nilsson and Kid Pix commercials, he also launches a new monthly party, NONSTOP, referencing his job as a flight attendant between DJ gigs like NYC’s Asteroid City premiere last month. “It feels like I’m just going NONSTOP all the time,” he emails. “Shangri-La is such a cool destination bar and gateway to the Eastside. It always feels like I’m on vacation when I’m there anyway!”
