V-Henny: Who inspired you to make music? 
LV Jay: As far as who inspired me I would say Lil Wayne  inspired me to make music because he is so versatile and can do a lot and that’s something I strive for in my music myself. My twin brother had introduced me to Lil Wayne music back when we were in middle school. I used to walk around with all his tapes downloaded on my PSP and It was over from then.

V-Henny: What age did you start writing and recording music?
 LV Jay: I actually started writing music at the age of 24 but at first I used to just freestyle with my friends and I eventually made my first track . Most of the time I would go off the flow of the beat & how I’m feeling at the time. But now I actually write my songs out. 

V-Henny: What made you want to become a player in the music industry?
LV Jay: What made me wanna become an artist is the freedom of expression they have and music is something that could help me talk to others that may be going through the same thing I’m going through in life . 

V-Henny: What is your goal with being an owner of a label?
LV Jay: My goal is to have my label big like QC one day and build a label with family vibes that’s very important to me . 

V-Henny: Looking back then to where you’re at now, give me a moment that made an impact within your music career. 
LV Jay: What made an impact on my music from back then to now is seeing my friend Yung JD go so hard and seeing other artists from Florida go hard in the rap game. They make me want it more and become a better artist myself.   

V-Henny: Has it been a smooth road for you as an artist? 
LV Jay: No it hasn’t been a smooth road as an artist because I’m an independent artist and you have to be organized in order to compete with other artists that are actually signed to these big labels . But to be real I Love the grind and the hustle that come with the music industry. 

V-Henny: What would you be doing right now, if it wasn’t for your music career?
LV Jay: If it wasn’t for music I’ll be going to school getting a masters degree or owning a business if I wasn’t focused on my music career . 

V-Henny: What were some of the steps you had to take to get to where you’re at in your career?
LV Jay: The steps I had to take was to find out what kind of artist I am and what kind of music I wanna make . Then after I discovered that I just started working on songs and investing in myself also started networking within the music industry. 

V-Henny: What projects are you presently working on?  
LV Jay: I’m working on a mixtape that I’m making with Yung JD right now. It’s going well so far and will be a hard tape. The tape will have 10 tracks on it. 

V-Henny: Who would you most like to collaborate with?
LV Jay: I would like to work with Lil Wayne , Future , DMX , Lil Durk, No Cap , Lil Baby , Polo G , Lil Tjay and Drake and many women artists like Summer Walker and Cardi B. 

V-Henny: Other notables you have worked with?  
LV Jay: Other nobles I have worked with was an artist named Saintlee. She has a great voice and we made a track called “Right from wrong” . It’s on my EP “I Jay You” which is on all platforms.

LV Jay: My goal is to become a gold artist first and then a platinum artist next. I wanna be the next big thing out of Florida .  

V-Henny: What is one message you would give to your fans? 
LV Jay: The message I wanna give people that listen to my music is a point of view of my life and also a positive message to grind and go get it no matter what challenges you may face. 


V-Henny: What is the best advice you’ve been given to pursue your goal as an artist and a label owner?
LV Jay: The best advice I got as an artist and a label owner is you go get out what you put in with this music game. Meaning the more I work the more progression I’ll see and if I don’t work on my craft you won’t see much change. 

V-Henny: Is there anything else you would like the world to know about you?
LV Jay:  I would like the world to know that I’m going to be the next big artist coming out of Florida.

Meet Sasha Melo

Sasha Melo is an American recording artist, performer and creative from Brooklyn, NY. with a sound packed full of drums, clever lines and a New York spirit. Sasha Melo embarks on a music journey familiar yet uncharted read more below as you learn who is Sasha Melo.

V-Henny: Who inspired you to make music? 

Sasha Melo: To make music & pursue a career in it, my cousin, Worldwiide inspired me. I’d say Aaliyah & Drake as the artists who inspired my approach to the craft & industry of music. Aaliyah showed me whatever your style is, be true to it. Do what you must but add your flavor to make it alright. With Drake’s early music I was introduced to an artist who was emotionally connecting & reflecting on experiences that I also was able to resonate with in a sonically different way. It showed me, another example of how music could transcend through tough feelings & experiences. 

V-Henny: What age did you start writing and recording music?

Sasha Melo: I wrote my first rap when I was 8 in third grade. No beat, acapella & it was the hardest rap ever. I don’t remember the words but there was a vibe there. I first recorded music like songform with Worldwide when I was 15. 

V-Henny: What made you want to become a player in the music industry?

Sasha Melo: My love for performing is what drives me. Growing up, my uncle would play music almost everyday in the house. Different genres, but mostly dancehall, hip hop & rap. He & I would come up with dance routines for me to perform to whatever song was hot in the moment. I wanted to rap the raps, dance the routines & sing. I wanted to do all of it. As I got older, my relationship with music just kept growing deeper. & we’re here now. 

V-Henny: Looking back then to where you’re at now, give me a moment that made an impact within your music career. 

Sasha Melo: Meeting and working with my mentor Jhai Signature, may he Rest In Peace. From our first meeting until our last conversations, he was always an encouraging force. Reminding me to trust my instincts, see the potential in myself as an artist, writer & creative. He came in my life right when I needed guidance, right on time. Helping me to tap in to my talent & channel it “correctly”. It wasn’t easy because he never let up on me, always challenging me to be better than my last take. It was pressure then but it’s the discipline that’s paying off now. I miss him a lot though. Especially after a new music accomplishment but I’m grateful for our time together. 

V-Henny: Has it been a smooth road for you as an artist? 

Sasha Melo: It hasn’t been a smooth road at all & I’m not where my destination is but, the journey I’m on is lit though. 

V-Henny: What were some of the steps you had to take to get to where you’re at in your career?

Sasha Melo: In the middle of a pandemic, my step 1 was to realize who really runs shit concerning me, & it was me. Everything else is out of my control therefore out of my worry zone. My Step 2 was to figure out what to do with the truth of  Step 1. Step 3 was to apply Step 2 & make it work. 

V-Henny: Has the pandemic affected your career? If so, how?

Sasha Melo: The pandemic halted me on one journey in a separate profession & sat me down in stillness. In that stillness I was able to mourn, heal, purge, cleanse, create & begin a new journey, completely different path. Really able to tap back into self which at the time when the pandemic hit was needed. As scary as the unknown was, everything coming to stillness was a reset button I needed.

V-Henny: What projects are you presently working on?  

Sasha Melo: My new single Lionheart is on the way. Near the end of March. Something for the people. A song I hold close to my heart about self courage, an ode to cycles of change & rebirth but heavy on the turn up. I also just finished recording some tracks for my mixtape too. Soon come. 

V-Henny: Other notables you have worked with?  

Sasha Melo: My debut single “Choosy” has gotten some airplay on HOT 97 by Dj Drewski & The New Movement, in addition to Desert Storm Radio via The Last Take podcast. I’ve also performed in the Grind or Starve Showcase and will be performing there March 20th. Pop out. 

V-Henny: Ultimate goal within your artistry ?   

Sasha Melo: My goal is to leave a great entertainer’s legacy behind when I’m finished. To be the best Sasha Melo in the spot. To be able to say I helped pay it forward for the next generation of creatives. When you think of Sasha Melo I want you to get hype, get lit & want to make the most of every moment.

V-Henny: Who inspired you to make music? 

PROMNGHT: Aaliyah definitely played a huge role in me starting to make music .

V-Henny: What age did you start writing and recording music?

PROMNGHT: I started writing and recording around the age 15 I should say

V-Henny: What made you want to become a player in the music industry?  

PROMNGHT: I think the whole creating process of it all. I loved the idea of  expressing through my work. Whether it was music or just simply designing. I grew up watching my fav artist perform at award shows, being played on the radio. and etc. All of that was impressive to me and I wanted to do that and finally be appreciated for what I’m good at.

V-Henny: Given the process within your path, give me a moment that made an impact within your music career.

V-Henny: Has it been a smooth road for you as an artist? 

PROMNGHT: It most definitely hasn’t and I think most independent artists can vouch for that. I’ve made a lot of bad decisions . Went down the wrong roads, Sacrificed a lot. Went broke. I appreciate those moments though because without those moments I wouldn’t be the artist I am now. I’ve experienced, learned what to do and not to do. It’s all about growth and learning.

V-Henny: What were some of the steps you had to take to get to where you’re at now?

PROMNGHT: I had to learn how to do things on my own and not depend on others to get the job done.

V-Henny: What is one message you would give to your fans? 

PROMNGHT: Without you guys I would be nothing. I wouldn’t have gotten this far truthfully. We have to treat our fans like our family and acknowledge them. You;re never too “BIG” to acknowledge the people that supported you through your career and got you this far!

V-Henny: Is there anything else you would like the world to know about you?  

PROMNGHT: I am here to stay and not because I am better but because I feel I am different and a breath of fresh air. Truthfully, I’m starting to understand and accept that I am a beast! I don’t give myself enough credit as I should.

Hickman L.A.- Gaining “Momentum” in the Industry

Written by: Julz Mancini

Have you ever heard a music artist and felt their lyrics so deeply that you immediately knew they were destined to be a creative who reaches success? There are a plethora of talented artists, whom continue to struggle to pinpoint their unique sound and style; that struggle to let go and allow their gift to flow naturally. However, there are individuals who allow their soul to leak through their pen, blessing the paper with the privilege of grasping their captivating lyrics.

Hickman L.A. is an artist who spits fire, conveying his confidence, talent, and purpose. Through his music, Hickman makes a statement; he is here to make a stand as a prominent rapper in the music industry. Writing his first original, well-structured song at the age of fifteen, Hickman mesmerized his audience. As his talent progressed, so did the opportunities to stand in the spotlight. Touring and having the honor of blessing stages with heavy hitters such as Wale, Kid Ink, and Juicy J, to name a few, further opened Hickman’s eyes to the life he was meant to live.

During 2020, while the world was facing the most difficult of times, Hickman utilized the obstacles to create music. Releasing his album titled, “Momentum”, he was able to develop several songs gifting his fans with witty word play, punchlines, relatable topics, and catchy hooks. As I dove into the project, I was lured in by the first track titled, “Momentum”.

Young grenade, I explode when I pull out the pen. No coke. I am dope flow hallucinogen.”

“Shooting lyrical harpoons. You riding waves. Now you looking like shark food. Screaming my accomplishments. But I ain’t gonna taunt you. I’m just gonna pray that the spirit of hustle haunts you. The win is mine. I’m taking spots. No sympathizing. I’m L.A. after the track, my momentum’s rising.”

“Momentum” is the perfect song to introduce the album as it displays all of the components this talented artist consists of. I couldn’t help but play the track multiple times as I was enchanted by Hickman’s lyricism and delivery.

The second song on the album titled, “Being Black” is one of my favorites due to Hickman’s openness and willingness to invite people into his world. As he describes the life he lives as a Black American, the listener can envision what it is like to walk in his shoes. For those who are culturally and racially diverse, “Being Black” will draw certain emotions from you allowing you to, not only listen to the lyrics, but deeply feel them. For the listeners who have ever wondered what it is like to be black in America, this track will surely open your eyes to the harsh realities the black community faces on a daily basis.

“Being black is being confused. Erase history so you don’t know you. Being black is living out every day mad. Working twice as hard just to have half. Being black is feeling like a lab rat. Tuskegee experiment; google that. Being black is scrolling through your T.V. and you don’t ever see your skin tone. In your own residence still not at home. Black America’s a warzone.”

“She Wanna” is a song for the ladies. Hickman lures in female listeners with this track as he shows his understanding and sexy side. This song provides the listener with another side of the talented rapper.

“I can tell you real by your conversation. You be going through a lot. I applaud your patience. Bit her lip so I know she want that penetration. And trust I can keep a secret. Baby, I ain’t gon’ say sh*t.”

As I continued through “Momentum”, I came across the song titled, “Living Dreams”. This track shared a very strong message. As the listener embraces the lyrics, they will notice that Hickman is willing to work hard to accomplish his goals. He does point out, however, that many want the end result but are not willing to trudge through the mud to obtain it.

“Everybody wanna ball. Everybody want the green. Everybody want the palace gates. Everybody wanna succeed. But don’t nobody wanna crawl. They just in it for the greed. We ain’t in it for the accolades. We just out here living dreams.”

Hickman certainly paints a vivid picture with his lyrics portraying how real, assertive, and unwavering he truly is. As my journey through “Momentum” came to an end, the song “Better with Time” began to play. During this song, it became noticeable that Hickman is very observant of others, learning strengths and weaknesses of his opponent as well as himself.

“I’m from L.A. Forever CA my state. Ya’ll n**** too reactive. I watch and calculate. Ya’ll hotheads, proper and easy like paper plates. The way I apply pressure, no wonder why ya’ll n***** break. You might overlook me but you’ll never overcook me.”

“Momentum” is a clear sign that Hickman L.A. has gained momentum and has no plans of stopping. Through his lyricism and creativity, it is obvious that he will most definitely obtain the highest peaks within the music business. I am eager to see what his next project will entail.

We look forward to witnessing his growth as he rises within his career 

Read more below, as I was able to interview DJ Chase

V-Henny: What inspired you to pursue your career as a DJ? 

DJ Chase: I been djing back since in 1998 when I was 12. My father brought me my first DJ set; the gemini xl 100s. I wasn’t really good but it was so much fun and innocent. I actually wanted to be a stock broker. I but God had different plans for me.  My pops was part of the zulu nation. and I just feel right in it. 

Vee: Also, can you speak on your experience, when you starting your career as a DJ, getting gig offers? 

Chase: When I started  to DJ professionally it was fun when I started. I really started booking gigs in college in SUNY Oswego, back in 2005. I started DJing college parties and college radio. and I been doing it ever since. 

Vee: As a veteran in this game, What would you like fans to know about your daily grind?

Chase: lol I appreciate that, My daily grind consists of praying. Exercise, watching my diet. Loads of phone calls, and emails. You have to be very committed. I wake up and don’t check my phone. I stretch. and Clear my mind to start my day. I open my phone and check my schedule and the daily and weekly expenses and budgets. and I take it from there 

Vee: Your goal is to create a legacy, build yourself up as an entrepreneur and reach your highest potential. The sky’s the limit as you would say. Starting your own publishing/production company and independent label, what’s one challenge you overcame that made you want to become a better creative? 

Chase: The One Challenge is dealing with the social media perception of what success is, when your tryna conduct business with people. I’m a very private person. I don’t even have enough time to post every single thing or business deal I do on social media. Plus in the type of business I do and conduct, I can’t post my business dealings on social media. This helps me be a better creative because I learn more meticulous ways to be have more mystique. 

Vee: What makes you stand apart from your competitors?

Chase: I have my own sound and style. I never followed anyone or emulated anyone. I also don’t feel anyone is my competition because I came up different from these industry people, I don’t focus on gossip and politics, I focus solely on the music. 

Vee: If you had a chance to put together a track with 3 major artist who would be on the record and why?

Chase: 50 Cent, Jay-z, Dru Down. The Reason Why I would put them on a record together, as crazy as it sounds I’ve worked with every artist I wanted to work with, growing up. Except these 3. They were my favorite artists growing up. and still are. The other artists I would put have passed away.  

Vee: Your latest project “Rich in spirit” which dropped back in September. Elaborate to us the concept behind the title and the cover art. 

Chase: The title was inspired by God to be honest. This year was rough on a lot of people including myself. I lost a lot of friends. And my final straw was when I had a phone call during the riots and protests for Gerorge Floyd, and I spoke with a representative from a “Major Label” When everyone was tryna exploit and use “black lives matter” as a cloack to exploit young black artists. I really had to scream at him, and I just lost it. So I wanted to just do a positive album and a hybrid gospel album. The cover art was a art piece I had custom made to represent heaven, and just uplift people. 

Vee: From radio, podcast to producing music for artists. Would you say Your love for music is the same as it is for the business?  Please elaborate 

Chase: I mean it’s both. I love the business side more cause I get to travel and connect with high society people that I could never even be around if I only did music. 

Vee: We know that you’re always dropping gems for the culture, inspiring and motivating others to want more. When In doubt, what do you do when you are in need of motivation or inspiration? 

Chase: Honestly I just surround myself with people who really know me. Motivating and helping other people succeed motivates me. All the shit I’ve been through to get to where I’m at now, I still got a chip on my shoulder from it. I know how to channel that memory of when people used to tell me I’m wack, and the people who said I would never make it. 

Vee: What’s next? What are we expecting from you in the near future? 

Chase: The Next Step is a big Office and More Big Singles, and More Blessings From God. I want better health, and to give black people more jobs.

Determined and hungry for success, Shorty Jah has made the effort to use his voice as motivation and share his story. His drive has placed him to perform at legendary venues such as SOB’s , Bowery Electric and BlackTop Boston, amongst other venues. Along with a bright .,future ahead of him, we are looking at a rising star ready to take over the industry by surprise. Shorty Jah the only way is up.

Pyro Da Arsonist: How would you describe yourself as an artist and how would you describe your sound?

Shorty Jah: As an artist I would describe myself as an electrifying exciting rockstar / artist that express his upbringing and creativity to his music. I would describe my sound as a very unique interesting flow because usually I switch my tones in majority of every song. Sometimes I may even switch my tone and flow on one song to keep my audience interested.

Pyro: The indie music scene is saturated with artists so what would you say sets you apart from the rest?

Shorty: The things that set me apart from other artist would be my style, my sound , my energy & my heart. I have 100% gatorade all the time i’m not an artist that just have to portray an imagine, everything they see from Shorty I live and i’m like this all the time.

Pyro: What are some characteristics you think an artists needs to be successful in their careers?

Shorty: In my opinion I feel as if artist should be themselves no matter what and be confident while doing it. Also the main thing I would express as an artist I feel if you don’t put fourth the effort and go 100% for yourself no one else will. So believe in yourself confidently and express that in your music & those successful traits will help you grow upon you.

Pyro: If music doesn’t work out for you do you have a back up plan or anything else you’re passionate about?

Shorty: Definitely, if music didn’t work out for some reason then I would be interested in doing modeling especially for different clothing brands. I love clothes and that’s another way that I express myself so that would definitely be something else I will be interested in.

Pyro: If you had the opportunity to be mentored by someone that can help you progress in your career who would it be and why?

Shorty: This is a great question i’ve been thinking about this a lot lately, if i had the chanced to be mentored by someone else other than my father it would definitely be Master P. Master P and myself have a very similar upbringing especially how he entered the industry. Master P also played basketball coming up, and so have I. I also love how Master P came into the industry with his own style and flavor and that’s definitely something I will do.

Pyro: In this age of social media and digital marketing do you feel like an artist needs to be signed to a major record label in order to be successful?

Shorty: In today’s age and with social media being a very highly influential market, I feel as most artist don’t really need a major record label , but having one can definitely still help an artist reach his or her fullest potential.

Pyro: What would you say is the difference between a track & a record?

Shorty: The difference between a track and a record would be a track is just an audio that’s recorded with lyrics on it. A record is a properly mix down audio with interesting lyrics that may keep the audience interested.

Pyro: Finally, do you have any final words you would like to say to our audience?

Shorty: Yes, I would love to say to my audience that I love you guys , most of the people who support my music have been with me since day 1 when I first started. They are really die hard fans and we have grown together and now that we are reaching another stage I feel as if they are growing with me and I just want them to be very excited because we have a lot of great new music , videos and other things we are working on.

Migs718 Releases New Single “Yetii”

Written by: Julz Mancini

“Smooth. 3am she wanna grove. Said arch ya back, she approve. Dinero, watch how I move. Rolling the whip when I cruise. Lose, dam that’s all that you do. She know I’m better than you. And you know I like the view.”

We live in an era where people are more interested in visuals than anything. When artists post a video, whether music related or just to talk to their fans, viewers feel more inclined to engage with the artist. Engagement, being a primary component in developing super fans, grasps the attention of followers intriguing them to look further into the artist. YouTube has become a super colossal outlet for music artists to share their content with the world. With the right combination of videographers, directors, cast, and music, artists will begin to see a ripple effect of support from viewers. Migs718 is an artist whom has acquired this perfect combination allowing his fans to witness his amazing energy, talent, and creativity come to life.

Recently releasing his single, “Yetii”, Migs718 blessed his viewers with a great story line, edgy angles, and a strong camera presence. The video for “Yetii” is unlike many of the music videos shared on the internet today. From beginning to end Migs718 matches his lyrics to the plot within the video. Having the ability to follow the story throughout its duration paves the way for Migs718 to stand out in an industry where cars, money, and pretty women supersede the importance of creating a movie.

From the start, Migs718 experiences an interaction with a woman whom has a boyfriend. Their interest in one another ignites the tone for the rest of the video. As the woman of interest dances by his side, Migs718 makes it clear that she is his for the taking. Also showing love and support, is a group of energetic individuals who show off their dancing skills to Migs718’s catchy lyrics. With “Yetii” being released just four days ago, Migs718’s views are quickly increasing. Having over four thousand views, it is clear that this single has made an impact on his audience leaving them eager for his next project.

It is no surprise that Migs718 has obtained a loyal fan-base. With his eclectic abilities, Migs718 has consistently released music with each song attracting different demographics. His song, “Groupie Luv” has an aggressive vibe with quick flowing lyrics, a repetitive beat, and a catchy hook allowing Migs718 to portray a different side of his artistry. “Two Door” is completely opposite displaying a smooth beat and a softer delivery. It is rare to listen to an artist who is diversified, dipping into multiple sounds while altering their flow. This talent proves that Migs718 deserves the spotlight and will stop at nothing to achieve it.

He now posts his DJ videos on Instagram & Tik Tok and currently DJ’s for The Lion 90.7 FM WKPS while attending Penn State University to pursue his career as a TV & Radio Personality.

Below you will find my interview with DJ Yung Nas and learn about what inspires him, his techniques as a DJ and more.

Pyro Da Arsonist: You were inspired by DJ Diamond Kutz & DJ Camilo. What was about them that inspired you?

DJ Yung Nas: What inspires me about DJ Diamond Kutz & DJ Camilo is the way they DJ. I like their style. DJ Diamond Kutz plays music at a fast tempo giving it energy, making it more
hype. DJ Camilo is different, he makes every song sound fire. He also doesn’t stay in
one genre, he’s very flexible with his music. He plays Hip hop, Afrobeats, Latin,
Reggaeton, etc. Just listening to them a lot inspired me to become a DJ and create my
own style.

Pyro: Mashups are not easy to get right so what is your thought proces when creating a mashup and do you mashup different genres of music together?

Dj Yung Nas: When making mashups, the first thing I do is look for a good instrumental or acapella. I do this just by scrolling through my library and listening to songs. Once I do that, I check the bpm just to make sure the sounds are not far off so that I’m able to mix them. After that I then practice the mashup of how I want the mix to go and then once I’m ready, I
begin to make the video. I have not attempted to mash up different genres of music
together but I am definitely planning on making one in soon.

Pyro: What artists would you like to produce for and why??

DJ Yung Nas: An artist that I would want to produce is Dababy. I like his flow on his music. I think he is
a unique rapper and it would just be a crazy experience to produce for someone like him.

Pyro: Do you think at this point in your career you can handle the pressure of DJing for a station like Hot 97 or Power 105? If so how would you convince them to hire you?

DJ Yung Nas: At this point, I am very confident that I can DJ for radio stations like Hot 97 and Power 105 because I have experience DJing On-Air and I also play the same music as them. I am currently DJing for The Lion 90.7fm Wkps every Friday at 11pm so I can finally say that I have experience DJing on local radio. Me actually going to power 105 or Hot 97
would mean a bigger audience. How I would convince them to hire me is that I would say
I have DJed on radio stations before, Two internet ones and one local station, I’ve also
worked at Cumulus Media in my hometown, and my mixes have gained a lot of attention
on mixcloud and soundcloud so I’m pretty sure if they actually listen to mixes they will
enjoy them.

Pyro: What would you say makes you stand out as a DJ?

DJ Yung Nas: What makes me stand out as a DJ is my progress from when I first started. I have been a DJ for sometime now but I have not been uploading my dj skills until the summer of 2019.I always felt that I wasn’t ready because when I watch other DJs, their scratch skills and mixing techniques were far too advanced and that its not possible for me to get to that level in my career especially on a Pioneer SB2. What made me change my mind was that I didn’t have the finances to get turntables and a high quality mixer so I decided that I was just going to have to make it work with what I have until I was ready to
upgrade. My first couple of videos I was doing regular transitions and scratches, now I
am doing combos and mashups. I have progressed so much within that time and I
believe that’s what makes me stand out.

Pyro: What do you feel about those who say that Controller DJ’s aren’t as skilled as Turntable and Record DJ’s?

Dj Yung Nas: People who say that DJs who use DJ controllers are not as skilled as DJs who use vinyl are crazy. What some people need to realize is that it’s not about what equipment you have it’s how you use it. All equipment has its pros and cons. I have watched youtube
videos of people making insane routines on DJ controllers and vinyl. Both can get the
job done if you practice enough. Now Is it hard to scratch and do certain things on a
controller than vinyl, maybe. It may require a lot of practice and it’s possible but that’s not
the case. Everyone has their own style of doing things the way they want too and that’s
all that matters.

Pyro: If you had a chance to put together a track with 3 major artist who would be on the record and why?

DJ Yung Nas: 3 Major artists I would choose for a record would be Drake, Young Thug and Quavo. I chose them because anything that they drop especially as a single is a banger or
something people can vibe too.

Pyro: What sets you apart from your competition?

DJ Yung Nas: What sets me apart from my competition is my creativity and passion. When I make videos I try to add at least one new thing to the video whether it’s a scratch or transition method, I never try to do the same technique every video. I may have multiple videos with the same concept but in each of them there are different ways of how I do things, whether it’s the beginning, the middle or end of a routine, I try not to do the same thing. Another is the fact that I’m doing these routines on a small DJ controller. Some people think that you need turntables to make cool dj routines for Instagram and by me
uploading my videos to instagram, I’m trying to eliminate that. I had no training only
youtube and it took time for me to progress and it can be the same for everybody else if
they put their mind to it.

Pyro: When it comes to your music library, how do you go about building it? Is there a research involved or is it off ear?

DJ Yung Nas: When I build my music library, it’s 50/50 research and off ear. The Research part is me looking to see who is dropping music every Friday at 12, another is going through my record pool seeing what is downloaded a lot and what is trending. Every song that I
download I listen to it first because I want to make sure it fits with the type of music I
play. I always ask myself, “will this keep the party going or will it die down if I play this”? I
can’t just download every song because at that point i’m just wasting storage for songs
that i’m only going to place once. So it’s very important to know your taste in music and
what you want to play.
