Real name: Stiles Fifield
DJ handle: SQuare D
What it means: A friend and I were at a thrift store when he found this jacket that said, “Square D” on it. He said, “That’s your handle now!” So I just kinda went with it and it stuck. I still have that ill-fitting jacket somewhere.
What I play: Mainly dubstep, but i also play drum n’ bass and other sorts of EDM.
Catch me at: I end up playing Facebass at Club Orion quite a bit. It’s always a good time. Upcoming shows: Dec. 7 at Facebass! Got in the game: Not that long ago. A couple of years maybe.
Why I do it: It seemed logical. I’ve been producing over a decade and I needed some platform to perform live. Also, it’s terribly addictive.
Influences: My buddy guy pals around the area: Yellow Fever, Ghostnote, Crewless and Tru Pain just to name a few.
First pro gig: Now that is a good question.
Studio work: I’m in the studio all the time, go to www.soundcloud.com/square-d for studio mixes and original tunes. I’m always doing something new so the content changes quite a bit.
Favorite technique: Up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A, start.
Signature mix: “Broken,” which is currently up on soundcloud.
Personal playlist: Whatever I’m practicing mixing with at the time.
Favorite albums: There is too much good music out there to narrow that one down, don’t you think?
My gear: ALIENWARE MX11 and a midi controller plus a ridiculous amount of software.
