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


Soundtrack: The Story of the DJ







I’ve been doing a ton of interviews about the #DJMovie project.  They all talk about the documentary but each interview branches out differently into DJing so check them out.

Last month I headed to Las Vegas to DJ some dates at Insert Coins.  Luckily I had some microphones in my bag and snagged an interview with my most hospitable host, DJ 88.  In Episode 8 (that was a total accident) of the Extra Credit Podcast, Las Vegas murder mami DJ 88 fills us in about coming up as DJ Adam 12‘s manager, Associate Producing the High School High soundtrack and carving out her place in the boy’s club that is DJing.  Do the knowledge, subscribe and give the podcast a good rating!

Opening set w/ DJ 88




Next time you’re in Vegas, you NEED to go to Insert Coins.  They’ve got arcade games, consol games on giant plasma TVs, a full service bar, bottle service and a dance floor complete with music from some of Las Vegas’ dopest DJs.  It’s a refreshing break from the strictness of the strip.


Every Wednesday DJ 88 throws a party called Versus where she brings in talent she’s  featured in her “Hang The DJ” interview series.  I got a chance to rock it a few weeks ago and I can say without a doubt it was one of the funnest parties I’ve played in a long time.  The motto of the party is “No Genres, Just Dope Music” and it’s exactly that.  The lineup was myself, Fashen and DJ 88 and listening to their sets was just as enjoyable as DJing.  Halfway through the night a crew of Cirque Du Soliel dancers showed up and set the dance floor on fire and a whole crew of Vegas DJs showed up to chill.


Check out the pics below and DOWNLOAD MY SET from the party!

Years ago I was in Vegas for a fashion trade show and the highlight of the week was supposed to be a DJ AM / DJ Jazzy Jeff performance at Rain Nightclub.  Unfortunately AM died that week the the gig ended up being a tribute show by DJ Jazzy Jeff and DJ Premier.  I remember walking into the club and seeing this gorgeous woman on the decks warming up the party.  It was the first time I had heard anyone play “Clear” by Cybotron at a night club.  I was sold.  The rest of her set was super dope and I became a big fan.

DJ 88

Fast-forward a few years, a little social networking, some mutual friends and here we are.   Last week DJ 88 h it me up about being part of her regular DJ interview series, Hang The DJ She’s got some heavy hitters on there and it was an honor to be considered.  Check me out, read some other great interviews and do your self a favor, next time you’re in Vegas, look her up!
