So I know a lot more DJ’s than I thought I did, and that has turned out to be a wonderful thing since many of them are interested in playing my music. The most recent DJ friend of mine who volunteered to play my stuff was the lovely and talented DJ Gatsby.
This was very exciting because it was the first time I’d get to hear the music played live in real life, with the other listeners right there, not just over internet or terrestrial radio. DJ Gatsby has a weekly residency at the fabulous Diesel store on 5th Avenue in NYC, so on Monday I went there to hear him play my tracks live, and furtively taped the whole trip, so I’ll upload the video here soon. It was so exciting to be in a hip, upscale store, with shoppers from all over the world all around me, hearing my music over the booming sound system. And the great thing was, the music, which I’d made with my simple little home studio in my bedroom, really sounded fantastic. It was also really fun to listen to because DJ Gatsby mixed the ends and beginnings of my songs together and it sounded great, and that was the first time I’d heard anyone do that. I felt like such a rockstar. I really wanted to go up to a shopper and be like “excuse me, do you know who sings this song?” and then be like, “IT’S ME!!!” but that probably would have been weird and confusing for them, haha. Anyway, it was an awesome moment, and you’ll see the video here very soon! Now hire DJ Gatsby for your club or special event. He is very talented and a VERY sweet guy!
