- What type of music?
I generally play house music.
- When did you first start?
I started around 4 years ago.
- Why did you decide to start it?
Honestly it was all by chance. I was first introduced to it from my cousin who used to DJ down in Bloomington, IL. It looked like a lot of fun. When I went back to school up at Ferris State, I was invited to a frat party and ended up controlling the music and “Djing” off of two YouTube pages. After that night the frat ended up inviting me as their Dj for the next party. At that time, I had no equipment and only had virtual dj. After seeing everyone smiling and enjoying the music that I was playing, I decided to invest more time into it. I bought my friend’s old gear and started to practice with it. That same year I met my mentor who later on helped me improve immensely.
- Are you a solo Artist of part of group?
I am a solo Artist.
- What name do you go by?
My stage name is Mushkilla.
- How did you come up with the name?
It was an old nickname that I had in the past. It is also an Arabic word which makes it a little more unique.
- Who do you like to collaborate with?
I honestly never thought about specific people. I would like to collaborate with everyone at some point. This way I can improve on my artistry by learning different techniques that are scattered throughout varies genres.
- Where do you play?
I mainly play at Elektricity.
- When are your upcoming shows?
My next show is Oct. 21st at Elektricity. It is for the Crankdat show and I will be performing on the patio.
