Shammy, thank you for joining us at VQS today. Take us back in time to when you first fell in love with music.
I don’t recall the exact moment. I knew I always loved it. But I can tell you when I fell in love with DJ’ing. I remember sitting in the back of my Mom’s ’89 Honda Accord and listening to the “Traffic Jamz” on Power 106 in Los Angeles. I was fascinated with how the DJ took Song A and Song B and then mixed them together. That blend felt like a new song to me! I loved how the energy never dropped, how the blends sounded, and how the vibe kept going. I was hooked on DJ’ing ever since.
What core values do to believe are necessary for success?
Consistency, Persistency, and Constant Growth.
What future opportunities would you like to be involved with?
Opportunities that push my creative boundaries, from creating new music with recording artists to composing music for plays. I enjoy working on projects that push the edges for both the artists and audience.
