DJ Kash: ‘The Unique Techniques’

Describe Your DJ Style: My DJ style is an intense party style. It’s a hybrid. It’s a cross between to being in Las Vegas, New York and Miami at the same time.

How is deejaying profitable from a business standpoint?

The business of deejaying starts with a professional mindset. If you have a certain price, you have to know your worth. People will ask you for a handout. But if you really want to make money off of it, you have to have a business standard. You also have to stick to your goals.

What is the future of the DJ?
The future will call for deejays to be more creative. Now the basics are easy to learn. When I was coming up, that wasn’t the case. You had to learn how to mix and blend. For the future, originality and creativity will be the key.
