Respect the DJ with Carmen Sandiego

How did you get into DJing?

I had a girlfriend who was a dj and one day she took me out on a gig and I was just sold. I quit my job and signed up for scratch dj academy.

What did you do to advance your skills/knowledge?

I went to scratch academy but aside from that I started out on a controller and moved over to turntables and vinyl to really develop a strong foundation. Since then - I deejay a few hours a day to stay on top of my skill set. 

What did your first set up look like?

I had a pioneer ddj controller and a small bluetooth speaker.
