‘Breakin’ it Down with Dilly’ is my newest venture. It’s a podcast/webcast that is centred around creatives, hip hop and DJing and for my first series, I am doing a focus on some female DJs who have inspired me. For my first episode I’ll be interviewing @deejaytjr a smart and talented DJ + sound engineer, based in Toronto Canada. T-Jr. has competed in DMC’s, placed 3rd in the Canadian National Redbull 3style competition in 2018, and competed at A-Trak’s Goldie Awards in 2019.
We sat down for a video interview via zoom and discussed her origins, transition into sound engineering, battle experiences, inspirations, highlights, industry tips and more.
I’m so excited to bring this to you guys! I get a lot of messages asking me about how I got into DJing, how other young women can navigate the music industry, how to get noticed, how to improve their skills, how to find personal style etc. And so hopefully this podcast series will answer some of those questions and inspire!
