A Conversation with DJ Dainjazone - Page 2
Bryan: How are you feeling?
Dainjazone: Tired, but excited! Pumped!
Bryan: I can imagine. I know you live in LA, and that’s where you’re based. How often are you home out of the year?
Dainjazone: I’ve been touring with the crew since May. It’s cool to be home. I was home for most of September; even though we were on a break in the tour I was still doing solo DJ gigs.
Bryan: Talk about homesick. That’s cool; it’s always good to be home. So, tell us a little bit more on how you got your start.
Dainjazone: It was really hard work and networking. I was doing some deejaying when I was in college. I came back to LA after I graduated from Mexico State University. I started out doing house parties and some private gigs at Universal Studios. Then I got with a DJ crew called the Spinatics. We would do clubs and house parties together. While I was doing gigs with them, I met someone from Hollywood by the name of Shawn Antonio – he started rotating me at all of his different club spots and it just kind of went from there.
Bryan: In listening to your mixes it seems like you do more than house and electronic music, right?
Dainjazone: Yeah, I love being all over the map. I’m that way with my career too. I know I’m going to do some commercials and some modeling as well. I’m with a talent agency now; we just have to find time with my crazy travel schedule.
Bryan: It’s amazing; you’re blowing up, man. When you first started deejaying, did you expect any of this to happen? What was your reaction when it first started? How are you feeling about all of it?
Dainjazone: I didn’t think any of this was going to happen, I didn’t know how to react at all. I just love to do it, it was my new passion. I just took it day by day, gig by gig. I knew that I could earn a pretty decent living but I never had this dream of deejaying for this artist or going on tour with that artist. I was just doing something that I love and working hard at it, I didn’t make goals. I just did it because it’s my passion.Continued on the next page
