Supreme La Rock and Zimmie drop knowledge!
Nice job putting this together. Can't wait for the next one. We need more people spreading knowledge like this about the DJ culture.
I thought the interview was very well done. I found Jazzy Jeff to be incredibly interesting and learned more about the history of dj'ing and music. I'm a teacher (and no very little about being a dj) so I was really intrigued by all the information they talked about. Thanks for sharing Zimmie!
Great insight from great DJs
This is great podcast for any DJ, hip hop head, or music enthusiast to listen to. It gives great insight into the DJ game, including industry pros and cons, history and background on some world renowned DJs, and entertaining horror stories of some of the worst gigs people have had to go through.
