‘All Screwed Up’ aims to untangle the legacy of Houston icon DJ Screw
NEW YORK – When DJ Screw started trending in August, it wasn’t because of newly discovered music or a coordinated effort by his devoted fans. “They don’t know that this ‘trend’ came from a very important person to our culture.”“All Screwed Up” combines biopic film elements with animation to detail the early years of Screw’s life before his “screwed” music technique exploded in Houston and spread throughout the South. The project will be released on www.allscrewedup.com for $99, which includes a commemorative giftset designed to look like an original DJ Screw grey tape filled with an “All Screwed Up” tribute cassette, a cassette player and other commemorative items. Born Robert Earl Davis, Jr., Screw began slowing down songs on the south side of Houston in the early 90s. So people know, ‘Hey man, you can come to Texas and do major things, major productions.’”The “slowed and reverb” controversy wasn’t the only time this year that DJ Screw got renewed attention.
