The focus of DJSB’s talent and focus is more on making music than just playing it. He is a musician first, then a DJ. However, being a DJ to him means more than just the playback. He would rather create with a turntable than just push play. This includes scratching, beat juggling, production, live drum sequencing, mixing genres and including these techniques in his own production. His background in music technology, action sports and hip hop culture allows him to create that unique DJSB sound, which is a hybrid of life experiences and mastery of craft. The goal is to use these sounds in the music licensing industry for film and commercial usage.
