1. How did you start DJing? Tell us about your origins
Been around DJing since I was 5. My brother ran in DJ circles and we were one of the few families that had a turntable at home with stacks of records – I used to play them all the time and ask my mom for requests. Fast forward to adulthood, where a business client of mine who is a DJ, showed me how easy things were to get back into now with mp3s and inexpensive controllers. The rest is history!
2. Who would you say are your influences?
I have been fortunate enough to be influenced by some incredible DJs throughout my career.
- DJ Jazzy Jeff has been a significant inspiration for me with his impeccable skills and ability to create magical moments on the turntables.
- DJ Chinese Laundry’s mastery of blending genres and keeping the energy high has also had a profound impact on my style.
- DJ Signal to Noise’s innovative approach to remixing.
- DJ Enferno’s ability to seamlessly incorporate live instruments into his sets have both shaped my creative vision.
- DJ Angelo’s technical prowess and DJ Howie Tee’s unique sound have also played a role in shaping my musical journey. These influential figures have collectively contributed to my artistic development and have helped me carve out my own unique sound as a DJ.
3. What do you think about the future of DJing? Where we are headed?
Looks promising! I am incredibly optimistic about the future of DJing. With the rise of artificial intelligence (AI), the DJing landscape is bound to undergo significant transformations. DJs will be pushed to explore new frontiers beyond simple song blending, as AI technology enables more intricate manipulation of stems and mashups. This opens up a world of possibilities for creating unique and immersive musical experiences.
Additionally, DJs will need to embrace a multi-dimensional approach to their performances by incorporating elements like lights, visuals, and video to enhance the overall sensory experience for their audience. As technology continues to evolve, I believe that DJs will have the opportunity to push boundaries, experiment with new techniques, and ultimately redefine the art of DJing in exciting and innovative ways. The future is full of promise and endless creativity for DJs in this rapidly advancing digital era.
4. What can people expect from your shows?
When you attend one of my shows, you can expect a phenomenal mix of music that transcends generations, keeping people of all ages moving and grooving on the dance floor. I thrive on curating an eclectic blend of tracks that span various genres, eras, and musical styles.
Whether it’s old school classics that evoke nostalgic vibes or fresh remixes that ignite the party atmosphere, my goal is to create a dynamic and energetic experience that resonates with every individual in the crowd. Get ready to be swept away by infectious beats, infectious melodies, and an electrifying atmosphere that will leave you with unforgettable memories.

6. Help other DJs to level up, give the community a tip that will improve other DJs performance
One valuable tip to help other DJs elevate their performance is to prioritize a strong and reliable internet connection. In today’s digital age, livestreaming and online performances have become increasingly popular. Ensuring a stable internet connection is crucial to avoid interruptions or glitches during virtual sets, ensuring a smooth and uninterrupted experience for the audience.
Additionally, utilizing multiple camera angles in software like OBS can significantly enhance the visual experience for viewers. Switching between different camera perspectives adds visual interest and creates a more engaging and dynamic presentation.
Lastly, it’s essential to read the energy of the crowd or client during live performances. Pay attention to their reactions, body language, and overall vibe to gauge what type of music and transitions resonate most with them. Being adaptable and responsive to the audience’s energy can make a significant difference in creating an unforgettable experience for everyone involved.
7. Let the people know what is going on in your life
Exciting things are happening in my life! Currently, I’m fully immersed in working on some cutting-edge effects for an upcoming online streaming show. Set to launch in June, this new venture promises to take the virtual experience to a whole new level. I’m pouring my creativity and passion into crafting captivating visual elements that will add an extra layer of excitement and immersion for the audience.
