Give props to DJ Dwreck
for keeping his '80s alt-rock mixes strictly old-school. The 33-year-old spinmaster even breaks out his old LPs for his weekly gig at the View. "It's not the '80s, if it's not on vinyl," says Dwreck (aka Derek Carney). "I love the crackle and the pop." When he took control of the Views' turntables earlier this year, Carney polled bartenders and regulars on the tunes they wanted to hear. He expected the Depeche Mode and New Order requests; the Bon Jovi and Rick Springfield ones took him by surprise. "I already had them on vinyl," he says. "I just didn't think anyone wanted to hear them."
