How did you get into DJing?

I started by being influenced by DJs like DJ Scribbles, DJ Enuff, and DJ Camilo. I used to record HoT 97 mixes on blank cassette tapes and listened to them on repeat. This generation has no idea.

What did you do to advance your skills/knowledge?

Started watching videos on YouTube of other DJs live and got more in depth with Serato. Utilizing these new controllers to their full capability has made my mixes more clean and crisp.

What did your first set up look like?

My first setup was a Gemini Starter Pack: 2 Gemini 500 Turntables, and the most simplest 2-channel Gemini mixer. Took my dads Sony 40” speakers and bought an amplifier to hold the power. Used that setup and only vinyls for the first 5 years.

TO LEAVE A LEGACY

What is some advice you would give to someone with a dream to become a DJ?

Make it your passion and don’t let anything get in your way. You’re style is your style. Just keep it fresh and it’s sky’s the limit

Where can people find you? (social media, website, etc)
