EQUISS - New Jersey DJ

Where are you from? I’m from new jersey!!!

When did you start DJing and what inspired you to do it? I started djing roughly age 9. I’ve always been fascinated with djs for some reason and very interested in radio djs at the time.

Who are your favorite music artists? hmm I have trouble saying who’s my favorite since i’ve had so many phases. The ones who have withstood the test of time are Timbaland and Prince.  What inspires you and drives you to create? The need to attach my mood to the absurd amount of music I’ve gathered over the years has translated into my sets. So effectively putting songs together explains more about how i’m feeling lately than words can. 

What do you think is lacking in nowadays music industry, and what positive progress have been made lately? I think music streaming platforms are the devil hahaha. Not to be a purist but some of my favorite djs come from a time where djs were relied on to display what they felt were the crucial records at the time. I feel like currently everyone is being fed from the same tree and too much music is consumable. I think there’s a lot of music that is slept on. As far as progress I think there is a lot to be made in that regard.
