ENERGIZER THA DJ, ALSO KNOWN AS “ENERGIZER,” PRIOR TO BECOMING A “DJ” IS A LIVE MIXER WHO GIVES A WHOLE NEW MEANING TO THE PHRASE “TURNUP.” SO, WHAT MAKES HIM UNIQUE?…YOU GUESSED IT!…HIS INFECTIOUS ENERGY! A “TYPICAL” EXPERIENCE FROM “ENERGIZER,” (IF YOU CAN CALL IT THAT) INVOLVES A MIX OF RECORDS THAT COMPLIMENT THE OTHER SONGS’ POCKETS AND HE BUILDS THE ENERGY OF A ROOM UP TO COMPLIMENT THE RECORDS PEOPLE LOVE TO HEAR. GO AHEAD AND ASK A PERSON THAT’S EVER HEARD HIM DJ (I’LL WAIT) & THEY WILL TELL YOU THE SAME (IF NOT MORE). SO, WHEN WE SAT DOWN WITH “ENERGIZER THA DJ” WE GOT TO KNOW HIM A LITTLE BETTER AND UNCOVERED THE SECRETS TO HIS HUGE SUCCESS, PERSONAL STYLE AND CREATIVITY. HERE IS WHAT HE HAD TO SAY:

I’VE TRAVELED TO OTHER CITIES & COUNTRIES TO OBSERVE OTHER CULTURES’ PARTYING ATMOSPHERE. THAT HAS HELPED SHAPE ME. IN TURN, I PRESENT THAT TO MY AUDIENCE & THEY HAVE NO IDEA THEY HAVE BEEN EXPOSED TO A DIFFERENT FORM OF MUSIC, THOUGHT, AND THEORY. I THINK COMPETING ON “MASTER OF THE MIX: SEASON 2” WAS GREAT FOR ALL THE FANS WHO’VE SUPPORTED ME THROUGHOUT THE YEARS. I ALWAYS LIKE TO SEE GROWTH IN ANYONE. THAT’S WHAT LIFE IS ABOUT, “BECOMING”. I THINK WE ALL HAVE OUR CHALLENGES AND MY METHOD IS TO JUST FACE WHAT EVER THE ISSUE IS HEAD ON AND EMBRACE IT ALL. AS FAR AS SUCCEEDING IN THE ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY, I THINK THAT KIDS ARE GETTING THE COMPLETELY WRONG IDEA ABOUT ENTERTAINMENT. THE BOTTLES OF LIQUOR, TWERKING, DOPE BOYS RAPS, LACK OF INDIVIDUALITY. I

BELIEVE KIDS ARE NOT GETTING A BROAD PERSPECTIVE OF ENTERTAINMENT. THE INDUSTRY IS KILLING THE ARTISTRY. I HOPE THAT A CHILD FROM FUTURE GENERATIONS CHANGES THE WHOLE PLATFORM. I THINK THERE’S A LOT MISSING IN ENTERTAINMENT. THE INDUSTRY IS HIGHLY CAPITALISTIC, IT SEEMS TO BE MORE ABOUT THE DOLLAR. I SEE A LOT OF CARBON COPIES IN THE INDUSTRY, I DON’T SEE INDIVIDUALS BEING REWARDED FOR ORIGINALITY, AND THE PREDICTABILITY IS RIDICULOUS. I WISH R&B WAS R&B AND HIP HOP WAS HIP HOP. TODAY IT SEEMS LIKE NEITHER ONE HAS A DISTINCT IDENTITY. I’M TIRED OF AUTO TUNE & DRUG DEALING LINGO, R&B HAVING TO HAVE A RAPPER ON THE RECORD, OR A RAPPERS 1ST SINGLE BEING A “CLUB ANTHEM” THEN THE NEXT RECORD BEING THE PREDICTABLE “RECORD FOR THE LADIES.” THE WHOLE FORMAT & MARKETING SCHEME IS OLD & PREDICTABLE. LET’S REWARD NEW INNOVATION. I MISS THE VARIETY. MY FAVORITE ENTERTAINERS ARE, OF COURSE, MICHAEL JACKSON; THE EPITOME OF ENTERTAINMENT, MC HAMMER; HIS HIGH ENERGY & FLAIR WAS AWESOME TO SEE AS A KID & SEEING THESE TWO GUYS PERFORM IS WHAT MADE ME REALIZE THAT WHEN YOU PERFORM, YOU BETTER BRING IT. I’M REALLY BIG ON MY INDIVIDUALITY, SO I HONESTLY DON’T BELIEVE THERE’S ANOTHER ENTERTAINER LIKE ENERGIZER THA DJ. I HAVE AN “IN YOUR FACE” PERSONALITY SO WHEN YOU THINK OF ME, THINK OF BEASTIE BOYS AND ROCK GROUPS LIKE RUN DMC, BUSTA RHYMES, ETC. THE FIRST PROJECT I EVER DID WAS A MIX CD (MIXTAPE) CALLED “BRIDGING THE GAP.” THIS PROJECT WAS BASICALLY JUST A MIX OF RECORDS I HAD & I WANTED TO PASS OUT TO GET MY NAME OUT. THIS CD WAS PRESSED UP IN THE APPLE STORE (I SAT THERE & BURNED THEM 1 BY 1), THEN I WROTE “BRIDGING THE GAP” IN MARKER ON THE DISC. I’VE HAD OTHER PROJECT SERIES LIKE: CHEMISTRY, NAKED GAME, THE BREAKS, MIXTAPE GODZILLA, STARS & BARS, FRESH & REBELLIOUS. CURRENTLY, I’M AT A CROSSROADS IN PROJECTS. THE MUSIC INDUSTRY IS A VERY STRANGE PLACE TO BE RIGHT NOW. I’M THINKING OF SWITCHING UP MY WHOLE STYLE!! NEXT, I MIGHT DO AN ALL INSTRUMENTAL/PRODUCTION PROJECT. AS AN URBAN DJ THAT’S A COMPLETE CHANGE IN CREATIVE ENERGY. IN THE NEXT 5 YEARS , I WOULD LOVE TO EXPERIENCE SUCCESS FROM TAKING THE RISK MOST OTHER ARTIST/DJs FAIL TO TAKE. MORE TOURING. LARGER DIGITAL PRESENCE
