Squirt, aka Aaron Wilkerson, was one of Dallas’ original junglists and one of the founding members of the 32 Degrees jungle crew (that I later joined) and was a huge influence on drum & bass culture in Dallas. Unfortunately he passed away on the 1st of April after a short illness.
Squirt was talented, hilarious, and very well-liked across all of Dallas’ music scenes. He was also a prolific mixtape producer who, at one time I believe, had 11 tapes floating around in the late 90s. I feel like a week didn’t go by without a new tape in my pocket. Which I always appreciated and made him a household name in our town. He wasn’t only into drum & bass though. He was a skilled turntablist and a well established hip-hop DJ that toured regularly with numerous acts. He did everything, from mixing to living, at a frenetic pace that befit his personality and we miss him dearly.
We’re sharing these mixes because want the world to know how important he was to everyone in Dallas.
There’s a GoFundMe page being setup to help his family pay for burial expenses. If you have it, please consider donating. CLICK HERE.
