Christopher Milo Interview
Christopher Milo aka Three just may be the most underrated DJ out there. Of course that’s long been one of the oldest dance music clichés. Barring that title, he has long been a crowd favorite in the anomalous hotbed of dance music in Tampa, Florida and has oft been name checked as many a DJ’s favorite DJ, including Sasha!
You might never imagine it, but his long-running monthly Hallucination Limited residency at Snatch in Tampa is still a requisite spot on the in-demand DJ circuit with recent visits by Laurent Garnier, Terry Francis, Damian Lazarus and Sasha. On Garnier’s short five-city US tour late last year, he cited Tampa as his favorite city, even over us here in NYC.
Three has since transplanted himself here to NYC and his DJ presence at a club or at afterhours is still a treat. This stems from his pure love of music and coupled with his impeccable taste and programming, translated into hours on end of musical transcendence. His Hallucination Limited WMC parties have always served a higher purpose in initiating new artists with James Holden and Radio Slave and in particular, breaking out Damian Lazarus onto the scene with much aplomb in 2005. This year is no different with live performances by Canadian techno-jazz trio Cobblestone Jazz and LA’s Reverse Commuter and DJ trio Droog at the 5th Annual Hallucination Limited party at The Pawn Shop on March 25th. One…Two…THREE…Party!
