Q) When did you start DJing – and what or who were your early influences?
I started DJING when I was 18. I always dreamed about being big and taking my talents to the next level, I would say my early influencers were, Calvin Harris, DJ Zog, And DJ Khaled.
Q) What skills do you think DJs need to be successful?
Anyone can be a DJ just learn the basics and teach yourself there’s no skills needed when you practice everyday and learn new techniques.
Q) How do you stay up to date with the latest music trends?
I’m always listening to radio stations and always looking at the top charts on Apple Music for new songs.
Q) What techniques do you use to engage the audience?
I try to engage with all my crowds as much as possible like singing along the lyrics or asking funny questions on the mic.
Q) What would you say is the most rewarding part of being a DJ?
I would say traveling. Traveling and meeting new connections is the most rewarding part of DJING.
Q) What do you usually start with when preparing for a set?
I usually start with bangers. I like to have my crowd’s attention. Once I have it, I just read the crowd and play what I think they would enjoy.
Q) What makes you decide to play a particular record during one of your sets? Is there a criteria other than pure subjectivity, for selecting what to play at a gig?
Every DJ has a particular way of reading a crowd. I know this might seem crazy but everywhere I go and every crowd I’ve had I knew and know what to play off the bat.
Q) How did you spend your lockdown/pandemic time? What did you accomplish before the entertainment world began to open up again?
I spent my lockdown marketing myself and trying to learn as many techniques on the deck as possible. It made me who I am today. I don’t like the lockdown but it did help me market myself a lot.
Q) What makes you different from other DJs?
I respect every DJ in the industry but if I had to answer this question I would say because I try to make every gig like a live concert. I want to enter the room and leave with everyone wanting more. My skills speak for itself.
Q) Last question, when not making music, where can we find you?
Nowhere I’m grinding and working to be number 1 so you can find me on my Mac on my sofa 22 floors up in Brickell.
