DJ Larizzle Talks Working with Westwood and Life as an International DJ
ReelTalk hooked up with DJ Larizzle to ask him about his successful career in DJing. This is what he had to say:
Tell us a bit about yourself. How did you get into doing DJing?
I properly got into DJing when I was studying for my first degree in Biomedical Sciences about eight years ago now. It was one of my many enjoyable hobbies at the time along with playing football and doing street dance.
Who has inspired you to do the kind of work that you do?
Funkmaster Flex is one of my idols. Tim Westwood was also a great inspiration to me and we’re actually pretty close friends now.
What are you currently doing to promote yourself as a young artist within the music industry?
I release a lot of free mixtapes via iTunes for download, covering a wide range of musical genres from RnB to Afrobeats to Dubstep. I also now have an official website which has also benefited me.
What kind of DJ do you see yourself as?
Im versatile, charismatic and technical I would say.
Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
In 10 years time I hope to be fully pursuing my other passion which is cancer research. I also want to be continuing doing a bit of radio presenting if time allows it.
Do you have any advice to give to young Djs that are trying to break into the industry?
I would say work hard, stay focused and network, network, network!
Tell us a bit about your new blog..
My new blog launched on Jan 1st 2012 along with the launch of my new website. The blog itself offers entertaining posts relating to industry news, music, tv and more.
Are there any up and coming events for us to look out for ?
Currently UK touring and will be in Venue 26 in Chatham, Kent on February 2nd the following tour date will be at Vaults Club in Dublin, Ireland on March 17th. In addition to this you can catch me at my weekly Friday residency at Honey Club in Brighton where I supply the best in Rnb, Hip Hop, Funky House, Afrobeats and Bashment.
