In this week's video series I'll share with you what I do outside of the DJ world and the other hobbies and interests that I am involved with. I've been a DJ since about 11 years old, but I also have many other duties and a totally separate way of making a living that most people don't know about. Check out this quick video and let us know how you manage to juggle DJ life with other responsibilities or hobbies that you may be interested in.
Lab Walkthrough & New Content [Video]
After countless numbers of requests, I'm finally going to show you the DJbooth.net Lab rooms that we use to test the latest DJ Equipment, perform, and of course practice.
