Here is our second interview for the In Session series, a space where we get to know more about Wavezoo DJs.
Today, we are glad to present you Dyessetta, a DJ from Whittier (CA). Get to know more about this DJ specialized in Deep House and Tribal House 💿
1. How did you start DJing?
I started performing in small backyards and for a few friends when we would get together to hang out. I never thought I would ever DJ, I started as a music producer but an older brother of mine had a podcast show that had vinyl DJs playing as well as the DJs, and they would have it every Sunday.
From going to that show every Sunday it was like church to me, being able to see different types of styles. Not just styles of DJs, but styles of music played, it really opened my music catalog for the future and it was really a main focus point on the start of my path as a DJ.
2. Tell us more about your influences
Honestly, I have many different types of influences. I really started studying different DJs from around the world who played boiler room sets which included Bonobo, Kaytranada, Soulection, and even older techno DJs and EDM such as Carl Cox and Green Velvet.
3. What do you think about the future of DJing?
I see the culture growing and advancing with the technology we have today.
We don’t have to carry vinyls anymore, we can just take a controller and play anywhere we want to and I feel that’s the beauty of music, technological advancements that have been presented to the community and have been welcomed in.
There was a time where DJ controllers were not welcomed by those who did play vinyl but as time has grown you are starting to see those vinyl DJs Jerry DJ controllers and that in itself is an advancement.
4. What can people expect from your shows?
Honestly, I create a vibe. I create musical energy from either starting off fast or starting off slow and building my way up through the night.
I play music that hasn’t been heard from in the region that I am located in and so it sounds so brand new to the people I play for. That’s the beauty of music, being able to get so many sounds from so many creative people so I present a sense of newness and enjoyment from start to finish.
5. What would be your ideal party
My ideal party would probably be a underground warehouse party with nothing but house music, future bass, Drum and Bass and Lofi vibes so it could be a sprinkle of everything. All in one I would want people to enjoy themselves dancing to music they’ve never heard or DJs they never see play before.
Here are some Dyessta go to tracks:
- Planet Giza – Benz and Rice.
- Childish Gambino – Terrified (Zikomo edit).
- Childish Gambino – This Is America (El Train Edit).
6. Help other DJs to level up, give us a tip that will improve other DJs performance
I would tell my fellow DJs to start investing in creating a show somebody wants to be at. Invest in a green screen and invest in quality equipment and quality wires because that’s what people are paying for: a quality DJ.
Lighting is very important so always focus on lighting on yourself and on your equipment. If you can have multiple camera angles of yourself that would be clutch, so people can see every aspect of you performing your craft.
