This week Melly Starzinterviews a well-known deejay, Deejay X Seven. He started his career as a deejay when he was shown a program called Virtual dj. He wasn’t taking it seriously but still did private events and was the official deejay for a local rapper. What really inspired Deejay X Seven to take things seriously was his son. While in the womb his son was very responsive to the music that X Seven would play. Now he is a constant reminder for X Seven to keep moving forward and working hard. Which he definitely has. He has worked at a wide array of clubs such as Mekka, Kaffé Krystal, Café Bodegita, Nocturnal, KCafe, and even Skyline among many others.
He is an open format deejay but his preferred genres are Dirty Dutch and Merengue. He is also one of the few deejays who still use vinyls. He looks up to deejays such as DJ LSL
, Epps and Run DMC
With such a unique name, many would wonder where he got it. The “X” is actually a roman numeral and the seven is his birthday. The reason behind his name being “deejay 17” would be because of his real name and the relation it has to December 17th in catholic religion.
He currently is working on edits and just released a mix
. He is also conjuring up a new old school mix that we hope to hear very soon. Deejay X Seven likes to use parables and words to express himself through his music. He is also associated with SBS
, which works with Mega 94.9 and EL Solo 95. He is studying broadcasting and hopes to work for Clear Channel someday, if not he may go up north and try to look for opportunities up there.
He leaves us with his motto: ”no fears, no regrets and most of all no limits.”
