Interviews

 

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!)

DJ Documentary

 

If you haven’t seen any of my posts on social media recently, I’m starting work on a documentary about DJing.  It’s very exciting because some very big names in DJing have already reached out to me in support of the film.  Right now I’m in the phase of raising money to start filming.  Rather than me retyping a bunch of info and boring you to death, check out the Kickstarter page.  There’s tons of info about what I’m doing as well as a fantastic video featuring a cosign from DJ Jazzy Jeff.

 

If you have any questions at all, please feel free to email me through this site or through the Kickstarter page.  If you like the project, please donate, share it, tell a friend, etc.  #DJMovie

Hot off the presses we’ve got the artwork for the Soundtrack documentary posters.  Showdeer did a great job with these and since the final posters for the film might be different, these will most likely be a limited collector’s item.  Donate now and tell a friend!

I’ve been hitting the promo tour full force trying to raise awareness and raise funds for my documentary about DJing.  (Donate to the #DJMovie Kickstarter HERE.)  One recent stop was 90.7 FM KBOO Portland Radio to talk to my man DJ ATM and spin some tunes.  We hit the record button and now you’ve got a tasty little mixtape off the top of my head.  Share it, donate to the cause and spread the good word.
