If it's as hot on Sunday as it's been all week, you're not going to want to end the weekend by sitting under your stuffy comforter. While all the working drones hit the sack early, DJ Sep and the Dub Mission crew will spend this -- and every -- Sunday night at the Elbo Room spinning music taken from the three D's (dub, dubstep, and dancehall) with a reggae twist. Sep's been at the game for longer than we can remember, getting crowds pumped with live acts and vinyl selections from around the world. Sep has been kind enough to answer a couple questions this morning for our Friday Hey DJ! Friday Q&A feature.

Name: DJ Sep

Club night: Dub Mission

Style of music you spin: Dub, Reggae, Dancehall, Dubstep (at Dub Mission) ; Electronic dance music influenced by the Middle East, India, Africa, and the Americas at other clubs and on KPFA (94.1 fm/ - Mondays 10 pm to midnight)

Name of a track you can’t get out of your head:
Soundguy by Rusko

Favorite DJ experience: Every time I look out on the dance floor and see bodies moving

Worst request: “Play something faster”

Most clichéd DJ track right now: I don’t know what it is, I just hope I’m not playing it.

Most treasured vinyl score: Prince Far I on Frontline

Musical mantra: If I feel it, I’ll play it

Question we didn’t ask you but you often ask yourself: What time is it?

Next time we can see you spin:

This and every Sunday at Dub Mission at Elbo Room;

Saturday, July 12 - CLUB DREAD Meets DUB MISSION - at Pier 23.

Tuesday, July 29 “KEEP IT RIO!” a night of Afrobeat, Brazilian electronica & baile-funk with BRAZILBEAT SOUNDSYSTEM (Belezza Records/Brazil-New Zealand) feat. MC NEGO BETO and DJ MARA plus DJ SEP at Elbo Room - 647 Valencia Street - SF –
