FIERCE: HOW DID YOU START OUT DJ’ING?

KAYOTIK: WELL I INITIALLY STARTED AS A PARTY PROMOTER THEN I WAS AN  LIQUOR AMBASSADOR TO A PARTY MC /HOST AND THE GOAL FOR ME WAS TO BECOME A DJ. IT WAS A REVOLUTION TO ME AND IT WENT FROM THROWING PARTIES TO GETTING PEOPLE DRUNK TO BEING THE HYPE MAN TO BEING THE ORCHESTRATOR. BEING THE DJ THAT I AM, I AM ABLE TO ORCHESTRATE THE PARTY AND GET THE PEOPLE GOING.

FIERCE: BACK IN THE DAY DJ’S WERE JUST DJ’S THEY KEPT THE PARTY GOING NOW IT’S MORE THAN JUST BEING A DJ YOU WEAR A PLEOTHRA OF TITLES. IS IT HARD FOR YOU TO JUGGLE SO MANY TITLES?

KAYOTIK: NO. FOR ME I HAVE a PASSION FOR THE MUSIC AS A WHOLE TO BEING THE CREATOR THAT I AM, IT IS IMPORTANT TO BE A JACK OF ALL TRADES  AND BEING ABLE TO STAY ABREAST OF WHAT IS GOING ON AND BEING A FULL CONGLOMERATE OF ENTERTAINMENT.IT IS BEING ATTENTIVE TO WHAT IS GOING ON IN THE WORLD, YOU HAVE TO BE FULLY ENGAGED AS TO WHAT IS GOING ON. TO ME ITS LIKE A MACHINE, I HAVE CERTAIN PARTS OF THE DAY WHEN I DO MY SOCIAL MEDIA AND CERTAIN PARTS WHEN I DO MY RESEARCH ON WHAT IS GOING ON IN THE WORLD, SO WHEN I DO HIT THE STAGE I HAVE CERTAIN THINGS TO TALK ABOUT TO THE CROWD SO BEING ENGAGED IS VITAL TO BEING A SUCESSFUL DJ.

FIERCE: NOW I KNOW YOU HAVE WORKED WITH A LOT OF ARTIST IN THE INDUSTRY WHICH ARTIST THUS FAR HAS BEEN YOUR FAVORITE TO WORK WITH?

KAYOTIK: UM….I WOULDN’T SAY SO MUCH AS A FAVORITE, I LIKE ALL ARTIST THAT I HAVE WORKED WITH. I LOVE An ARTIST THAT IS CREATIVE AND ABLE TO THINK OUTSIDE OF THE BOX. I LOVE An ARTIST THAT COMES WITH A TIMELESS RECORD. I CAN’T PINPOINT ONE FAVORITE ARTIST. I LOVE ARTIST THAT ARE SERIOUS ABOUT THEIR CRAFT.

FIERCE: WHAT TYPE OF FEELING COMES OVER YOU WHEN YOU ARE DJ’ING?

KAYOTIK: FOR ME THE ENERGY IS A RUSH BUT IT’S JUST I ENJOY WATCHING PEOPLE ENJOY THE FLOW; THE PEOPLE CALL ME THE MOVIE ORCHESTRATOR. TO ME I AM REALLY ORCHERSTRATING A MOVIE AND MAKING AN EXPERINECE LAST. THE RUSH TO ME IS WHEN I DROP A RECORD AND IT CREATES A RUSH OR WHEN I DROP A RECORD AND IT CLEARS THE FLOOR. I ENJOY TESTING MYSELF, I LIKE BEING ABLE TO BREAK RECORDS AND BEING THAT RISK TAKER AND PLAYING SONGS THAT THEY MAY NOT KNOW.

FIERCE: AS A DJ DO YOU FEEL LIKE YOU ALL OR YOURSELF PERSONALLY GET THE RESPECT FROM ARTIST BECAUSE YOU ARE THE ONES THAT BREAK THE SONGS?

KAYOTIK: IT’S A BUILDING PROCESS. I THINK AT THIS POINT I FEEL THAT MOST ARTIST DO REALIZE   HOW IMPORTANT THE DJ IS FOR THEIR CAREER. AT THIS TIME THE DJ NEEDS THE ARTIST AND THE ARTIST NEEDS THE DJ. I THINK THEY WORK HAND AND HAND. IT’S A CYCLE, THIS IS HOW THE DJS GET THE NOTOREITY THIS IS HOW THE ARTIST GET THEIR MONEY.

FIERCE: IS THERE SOMETHING ABOUT YOU THAT MAYBE NO ONE KNOWS THAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO SHARE?

KAYOTIK: UM…ONE THING I ALWAYS TALK ABOUT IS MY NON PROFIT ORGANIZATION FOCUSING ON THE SELF ESTEEM OF YOUNG FOLK. I AM ALWAYS FOCUSED ON GIVING BACK, IT’S GREAT TO BE ON RADIO A GREAT TO BE ON STAGE BUT IT’S FOR ME TO BE ABLE TO GIVE BACK THAT REALLY MATTERS THE MOST.

FIERCE: IS THERE ANYTHING THAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO SHARE WITH YOUR FANS?

KAYOTIK: UM…..THANK YOU FOR SHARING AND BEING SUPPORTIVE AND CONSISTENLY STAYING ENGAGED AND THE RETWEETS AND FOLLOWS BECAUSE WITH OUT THE FANS AND  THE SUPPORTERS OR EVEN THE HATERS I WOULDN’T  BE THE DJ THAT I AM SO THANK YOU.

 

DJ Kayotik definitely gave me a lot of insight as to what being a DJ is all about and I just want to thank him once again for his time and allowing me to interview him.
