Arabian Prince Talks ’80s DJ Scene, How DJs Can Adapt in Lockdown: The 20 Podcast

On Monday, Beatsource launched its long-awaited music streaming service for DJs, Beatsource LINK. So, it seems fitting to have the legendary rapper, producer, and DJ Arabian Prince on this week’s The 20 Podcast episode.

A self-proclaimed “technologist” and “futurist,” Arabian is best known for being a founding member of N.W.A. and helping pioneer electro music. He has since worked extensively in the tech and gaming industries as an investor, consultant, and animator.

In the interview, Arabian discusses the early ’80s DJ scene, how DJs can adapt during the COVID-19 lockdown, his involvement in the tech and gaming industries, and more.

Watch the interview above. An audio version of the podcast is also available on all major platforms.

Hosted by DJ Spider, The 20 Podcast features conversations with influential DJs and music industry professionals. Spider and his guests begin each episode by going through Beatsource‘s weekly list of must-have tracks, The 20.
