Where are you from?
Born and raised in Queens, NY and currently living there now.
What do you do?
I'm blessed to be doing what I love for a living through DJing.
What is your dream creative project?
I would like to drop an album one day. I still have a lot of learning to do musically and technically in order to produce it. I currently am working on that by taking piano lessons, learning the programs and equipment for production, and learning music theory - which are some of the tools that I will need.
Where are your go-to tunes for…
Rising? - I usually listen to a recent mix that I drop, or something that I've been working on - usually one of the Midnight Rockers Express mixes that drop monthly.
Exercising? - Me and the homies rent out a gym to play ball at weekly, and I usually play rap albums - old or new. I played the Migos album when it dropped, this past week we listened to Nas - It Was Written.
Partying? - I'm probably jumping between stations in the car listening to the mix show DJs on the radio - Hot 97, Power 105, or WBLS.
Is there something you really want to do in your city that you haven't yet?
I would love to open a juice bar / cafe that offers a curated selection of dope books, magazines, and other cool items, and serve as a creative hub for the local community around my way in Queens, and play amazing music throughout the day.
