Now this is just crazy. I’m not the biggest NBA fan, but for a while I’d follow the ins and outs of the league pretty regularly. One thing that would always stick in my mind? The ill names you’d hear coming into the NBA. Rony Seikaly fits into that “ill name” sector, andused to play center for the Miami Heat before bouncing to Golden State and Orlando before calling it quits in 2000. We’re not too concerned about all of that, though, as it’s his latest career that’s taken over. Since 2009, he’s been making his way through the EDM waters, releasing music on Erick Morillo‘s Subliminal Records imprint while holding down DJ gigs that have taken him most recently to the Ultra Music Festival just last month:

Noisey recently caught up with Seikaly, and he not only spoke about what its like coming up in today’s EDM scene, but let’s us know that his class of NBA players would beat today’s crop of stars. Wow. He also spoke on his “Sugar Free” radio program, which you can hear on SiriusXM, and what it’s like running a show like Wall.
