Tell me a little bit about yourself, where are you from, where do you reside etc? Im From Buffalo New York Born & Raised and I still live In Buffalo now.
Why did you decide to become a DJ?After being at 93.7FM WBLK (Buffalo, NY) and just watching the great DJ’s they had their at the time it just kind of caught my interest to the point I bought a bunch of equipment and watched countless hours of YouTube (lol) videos on how to DJ until I got better at it.
Who and/or what motivates you? My Daughter Shimee motivates me the most she is my world but also myCity does too. I honestly feel like I’m here to be a part of the world knowing my City for the great talent it has.
What would you say is your biggest accomplishment to date? Well if I had to name just one it would be my mixshow #TheBlackOut on 93.7FM WBLK I took a small overnight shift and turned it into the #1 Show at night. Everyone from party goes to people working night shifts to people locked up tune in to my show faithfully every week because they know “I FEED THESE STREETS” lol.
What projects currently working on? I have a new mixshow called “The Saturday Night Fix” that will hopefully be on-air by the time this article is released. I also have a Podcast Called “The Black Out Uncensored” that will be released soon also, im excited about both especially the PodCast because it gives me full freedom to say and play what I want.
What changes would you like to see in the music/entertainment industry? Things I would like to see and they kind of go together , First I would like to see more Indie/Local artist learn the game and how to approach and work with Djs and second I would like to see more Djs backing Indie/local artist.
What makes you different sets you apart? Honestly I think its that im not afraid to take chances Im not afraid to do what I feel is right regardless on how it looks at the time. That’s one of the reasons my show #TheBlackOut has done so well, Because I pretty much Play and say what I want to and it just so happens the listeners appreciate it and support it because they know its real.
What crews, company’s are you apart of why did you join the Fleet Djs? I am a part of the ArmadaleVodka brand and I joined fleet really to get to know other Dj’s in other markets and learn about how things go down in their markets and also for the Family like support the Fleet offers.
What type of equipment do you use, what other skills/talent do you have? Im pretty much good with all Dj equiptent but I mainly use 12’s and 4 channel mixer, even though I prefer CDJ’s because I sweat a lot and they help avoid the records or needles getting wet, lol hey what can I say I be turnt up when I Dj .
What do you do in your free time? Hobbies? Anything else you want to add/ Any Shoutouts? What’s your Social Media?As far as free time this is going to sound weird but I really like fish so most of my free time me and my daughter go visit random pet stores and look at fish lol. And I also love to swim im pretty good too. All my social media is under @DJBandanaBlack.
Thanks Salute Follow DJ Bandana Black!
