If you’re in the Carolinas, I’ll be giving a talk at the University of North Carolina on Tuesday, April 7th.  I’ll be discussing the documentary, the importance of DJing in popular culture, a wide variety of other DJ-related topics and there will be a Q&A.  (I’m also hoping for a BBQ&A on my trip. Ha.)  The discussion will be held at 2pm in Hill Hall.  Please forward this to any DJs you know in the area and reach out to me with any questions.  Major shout out to Mark Katz and DJ A-Minor for hooking this up.


To schedule a discussion at your school, please email through the contact page.

Later that evening I’ll also be rocking alongside A-Minor on Chapel Hill.

New #DJMovie Website


If you haven’t heard, I’m working on a documentary about DJing.  Last month I launched a mini website for it with the help of R1 Creative.  Take a second, check it out, watch the promo video with DJ Jazzy Jeff, donate and tell a friend.  #DJMovie







DJ Adam 12 on my Extra Credit Podcast


The first official DJ for a President of the United States, DJ Adam 12 has had an interesting and envy-inducing career.  He’s been the DJ for icons like Prince and Dr. Dre as well as the resident selector at some of the best parties in the history of LA (if not the world).  Above all that, he’s one of the nicest DJs I’ve ever met.  I got a chance to meet up with him at his studio where he’s working on a new solo non-DJ album.  (On top of his amazing DJ career he’s also one half of She Wants Revenge).  Make some popcorn and enjoy this one.


Also, if you need some DJ gear, sound, lights, whatever, visit our podcast sponsor, AGI Pro DJ, and use the code EXTRACREDIT when you check out.  You’ll save some loot while supporting a DJ-based company!

If you’re like me, you’re addicted to podcasts.  Aside from a full diet of new and classic music to check out, I fill my plate with interesting people interviewing other interesting people.  I like them so much I even made my own (Extra Credit).   Another great podcast on the DJ information tip is hosted by the DJ/production duo Rock-It Scientists.  Not only are they constantly filling your DJ crates with custom bangtastic tracks, but they’re also talking to DJs about any and everything DJ-related.


On my tour last month I was invited over to talk about DJing and promote the #DJMovie project that I’m working on.  (If you haven’t donated or checked out “Soundtrack: The Story of the DJ”, you can do so at www.TheDJDocumentary.com)  We had a great talk about the ups and downs of DJing, the documentary and how we can un-fuck DJing. (Hopefully?)


Check out the podcast, subscribe, give them a good rating, send it to a club owner and get behind the DJ documentary movement.  (Even if you’re not a DJ!)
