WHERE? I'm DJing at 30's The New 20 at Tangerine Lounge (647 King) on Friday (August 17). On August 24, I play Music at Sutra Lounge (612 College). I'm at PUMA The Concept Store (2532 Yonge) on August 25 and on the 30th, I play at Talib Kweli live at The Phoenix (410 Sherbourne). I also make a free mix tape every month, available at agile.podomatic.com.
WHY? I'm in love with music -- my first wifey.
FIRST GIG Simone's sweet sixteen birthday party and mix tapes in high school with JLJ.
BEST GIG A toss-up between the first MOJO party we had last October, or back in the day with DJ X, Power and Mastermind at Live @ the BBQ when Tha Liks came through and Tash grabbed the mic.
ON THE PRODUCTION TIP DJing got me into production (Agile has made music for Nas, Glenn Lewis, Jully Black and his own group, BrassMunk). Finding samples and realizing how producers were hooking them up blew me away! My boy Soov put me on to that. It also helped that my high school had an amazing music department.
