Eljon: What is your favorite riddim?
D'Bandit: I don't have a favorite because every rhythm has its own perfect composition and it's own personality.
Eljon: What did you want to be when you were growing up?
D'Bandit: I wanted to be an engineer as something to fall back on. I also wanted to be a businessman like my Dad.
Eljon: How did your name come about?
D'Bandit: My original name was to be the "Turntable Bandit", then called D (for Dwayne) Iron (for turntable) Bandit. I predicted people would shorten my name as a result of the popular song from Organizer, "Dats De Bandit." It was eventually recognized D'Bandit was the strength in the name, and in 1998, I officially shortened my name to D'Bandit.
Eljon: Golden Apple or Guava?
D'Bandit: Oh damn... well, it depends on the situation. Golden Apple has a texture, but Guava has an eccentric taste. I can't choose one! It's the same thing with music; choose according to occasion.
Eljon: If you were an animal, who would you be and why?
D'Bandit: I would be a puma or a jaguar because those animals have agility. They are also commanding to all the animals in the kingdom.
Eljon: Oil Down or Pelau?
D'Bandit: Oil Down!
Eljon: Good thing you said that otherwise you would have a whole mess of angry Grenadians on your hands.
Eljon: What's the best part of DJing?
D'Bandit: Seeing people enjoying themselves.
Eljon: Who are you jamming to right now?
D'Bandit: My daughter, Mia. That girl knows how to shake her waist.
