Track Name: L’Ecole de DJ
In Lyons, France, there is a school
That breaks the basic golden rule
That when you learn about the beat
You have to learn it on the street

The DJ school they have in France
Attracts the kids who want to dance
And puts them in a narrow seat
That hobbles natural Clubfeet

Kids sit in rows turntabling
Beat matching and beat juggling
The needle drops, the teacher frowns
Does methadrone get passed around?
The students laugh
The room breaks down

The teacher screams
No Sashas here
And no Judge Jules
No Paradise Garage you fools
Until with every bass refrain
Back-spinning, mixing,
Fries their brains

Vous m’dégoûtéz
The teacher grieves
They can’t scratch merde
The teacher leaves

The class is over
Scratching stops
The party starts
The music pops

Reverb Delay
An Equalizer
A Sub Harmonic
Synthesizer

The drum machine
The sampling moves
The kids start hitting
Every groove

Their feet unbound
They take the lead
School is out
The beat is freed

The phonograph
A French invention
Has now succumbed
To French convention

Go out, revolt, and hit the streets
Forget the school; create the beats
DJ School’s a joke, my son
Music is for having fun.

DJ School’s a joke, my lass
Songs should knock you on your ass.

Ecoutez l’ambassadeur , écoutez l ‘ambassadeur....

Ecoutez l’ambassadeur vous racontez l’histoire d’une arnaque
On l’appellera ici ou là académisme ou formalisme
Berné par des promesses de gloire, la nouvelle star à la matraque
Petit frère s’inscrit à l’école de DJ il est plein d’optimisme

Il vas taxer son mix et ses influences à une centaine d’autres
Péta scratchs et passe-passes sans déconstruction à nos apôtres
Il est clair que l’on est bien loin de l’école du micro d’argent
jamais le formalisme ne s’abstient de dévorer spontanéité et talent

J’en ai connu qui se sont saigner pour pouvoir exercer leur passion
Rapper sur des mixtapes à deux balles juste pour pouvoir cracher des phases en fusion
Avec trois notions de Beat-box on faisait rythmer le pavé
Avec des lyrics affûtées on déclenchait les hostilités

Frères et sœur ici gît un DJ minable
Il a fait l’école de Lyon et cette issue lui fut fatale
Il avait un talent presque improbable
Mais sa formation l’a réduit à l’état de végétal

L’ami DJ ça c’est sur retournera s’exercer sur du Guetta
C’est peut être mieux comme ça, on épargne au moins le Pera
