Today we’d like to introduce you to Darrek B.
Darrek, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
I started making playlists on apple music maybe 3 years ago and people just took to them. I think it was the combination of hearing things you really wouldn’t have in the rotation that made the playlists special. Every day, I would get someone asking me did I DJ.
I fooled with turntables when I was 16. I DJed my sweet 16 but it wasn’t something I took seriously. Then last year someone saw more potential in me than I saw in myself and gifted me a turntable it’s been up since then.
I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey has been a fairly smooth road?
The road has been pretty smooth. I actually think the growth has been pretty fast honestly. It’s one of those situations the more I put in the more I get out. The toughest obstacle is aligning myself with the right promoters but traveling to larger markets has helped with that a lot.
Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know about your work?
Musically, I’m well versed in a ton of genres which in my opinion sets me apart from others.
I mix music that you very well may not hear other DJs play. That ear has now created a lane in artist management, & music creation, and engineering.
