SPIN KINGS FEATURING DJ NSAYNE

JULY DJ OF THE MONTH:

DJ NSAYNE

DJ Sayne

I had the coolest conversation with DJ NSAYNE!  As President of Hitt Breaka DJs here in St. Louis, he is definitely doing big things on the deejay scene!  With close to 20 years of experience behind the tables, numerous mixtapes, and even managing a group, it’s evident that he takes his craft very seriously.  He is working hard to take deejaying to the next level and is dedicated to rebuilding his brand.  Sit down, get cozy, and get to know DJ NSAYNE:

 

TIFFANY LASHONDA RILEY:  Hey DJ NSAYNE!

DJ NSAYNE:  What’s up!

TIFFANY LASHONDA RILEY:  We finally get to chat!

DJ NSAYNE:  YEY!!!!!!!

TIFFANY LASHONDA RILEY:  I know!  Are you ready to get started?

DJ NSAYNE:  Yes.

TIFFANY LASHONDA RILEY:  Okay, so how did you get into deejaying?

DJ NSAYNE:  Well I sort of got thrown into it.  At the time I was working for Tossin’ Ted and managing a group that KING ODIE (DJ) had and it was a lot of DJ equipment around.  I started messing with the equipment and got good with it and been deejaying ever since.

TIFFANY LASHONDA RILEY:  How long have you been a DJ?

DJ NSAYNE:  For 17 years.

TIFFANY LASHONDA RILEY:  You almost at 20 years.

DJ NSAYNE:  Yes, it’s gettin’ there.

TIFFANY LASHONDA RILEY:  How important is it for someone to understand the culture of deejaying?

DJ NSAYNE:  It’s very important.  People need to understand that being a DJ today is different from back in the day.  DJs today have to be more personable.  You definitely have to use social media, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter.  DJs today really don’t have to be as skilled like you did back in the day.  We have controllers now where a long time ago it was just turntables.

TIFFANY LASHONDA RILEY:  Can anyone become a DJ?  If so what are the necessary steps to follow in order to become one?

DJ NSAYNE:  Anyone can become a DJ with a great mentor working beside them.  It just takes a lot of practice and dedication to deejay.  You also want to like what you do.

TIFFANY LASHONDA RILEY:  What was your very first gig?  And how did it come about?

DJ NSAYNE:  I started off working for tossing Ted at Pro Jocks Entertainment doing wedding receptions.  He brought Lil Jon to STL to Incahoots and I was asked to DJ; it was my first big gig.  Incahoots asked me to come back and then I started deejaying clubs from that point forward.

TIFFANY LASHONDA RILEY:  Do you have any mixtapes?  If so how many do you have?

DJ NSAYNE:  I have three mixtapes that are in a podcast.  They are on my website at http://www.automatic.djnsayne.com.  I have also hosted mixtapes for Mista McFly, Ruka Puff, Country Brown, and many others.

TIFFANY LASHONDA RILEY:  How are deejays from St. Louis different from deejays in other cities?

DJ NSAYNE:  Well having traveled to different areas all over, I noticed that St. Louis deejays are technically better. St. Louis deejays can do better transitions in between records and have better mixes.  Other deejays outside of St. Louis can “hype” the crowd better, and that could be because they may lack certain skills when it comes to deejaying.

TIFFANY LASHONDA RILEY:  What’s your favorite piece of DJ equipment?

DJ NSAYNE:  The Hercules RMX (controller).  You can do so much with it.

TIFFANY LASHONDA RILEY:  What are some of the local venues where you’ve deejayed?

DJ NSAYNE:  I’ve deejayed at The Loft, The Monastery, The Wax Factory, as well as other venues.

TIFFANY LASHONDA RILEY:  Do you have any upcoming projects?

DJ NSAYNE:  I’m working on some mixtapes, and there are a couple of artists that I’m in talks with, but we are still negotiating.  My main focus is on rebuilding my brand.

TIFFANY LASHONDA RILEY:  Where can the local people see you spin?

DJ NSAYNE:  On Friday and Saturday nights I’m at The Lion’s Den.  On Sunday nights I’m at The Ambassador.

TIFFANY LASHONDA RILEY:  Any shoutouts you want to give?

DJ NSAYNE:  HittBreaka DJs: King Odie, DJ Shock, DJ Sho, DJ Party Rock, DJ Wayne Moody, DJ Epic, DJ G-Spin.  Also Charlie Chan Soprano, Boogie Corleone, and DJ Sir Thurl.

TIFFANY LASHONDA RILEY:  DJ NSAYNE, I loved talking with you.  We will have to do this again real soon and keep on doing your thang out here.

DJ NSAYNE:  Yes we do, thank you.  All I want to do is bring back the realness of deejaying.

Canal Street by spunkybrewstar

Where ya’ll been?  Somewhere listening to Sam Smith, I would hope.  The album officially dropped last week and man, what a banger (just like I told you *ahem*).  If you’re planning on catching the US tour, I hope you already copped your tickets ‘cause, uh, the whole tour is pretty much sold out.  Fret not, though, I’ve got someone else you can check out and it’s just the kind of music you need for these sultry summer nights.  It’s the kind of music that’s a backdrop for summertime memories…get your listening ears on.

Who Dat, Harpo? Joonie

Hailin’ FromJacksonville, North Carolina

Spunky Calls It (Genre): Neo-Soul/R&B

What’s to like?If you’re a fan of artists like Bilal, Dwele, Eric Roberson, D’Angelo, Donny Hathaway or Van Hunt …you’re really gonna thank me for introducing you to Joonie.  His music is…well, it’s love music.  New love.  Old love.  And everything in between.  His latest project, Contrast, admires love on first sight, dances with the idea of forever and laments losing love.  You’ll find yourself not only singing along, but FEELING along.

Need a lil’ taaaaste?  Okay.

“Hey lover, you’re the essence of the song I sing and I’d do crazy things, crazy things, to show you what you mean to me/I could have the world but it could all fade away, I tell you this, I give it all up, baby, for you”

Listen …literally.  You need to jump into the links, immediately.

On This Side of the River… by CC Lovechild

*ERIC B voice*…It’s been a long time, I shouldn’t have left you…..

BLESSHA BONES cousins!!!  I’ve soooo missed you guys!  I’ve been through hell and high water, but managed to stay afloat.  I pray all is well your way.

WELCOME BACK CC!!!  Yup you heard right, ya gurl is back in the St. Louis area, loving the Muddy Mississippi side.  So if you see me out and about make sure we get selfies (if my hair is done…*gigglin*)

HAPPY BORNDAY TUPAC!!!!!!  We miss you and we love you STILL….hiphop hasn’t been the same (even tho you still recording from France).  I don’t have many regrets in life, but not sleeping with him when I had the chance is definately in my top 3!  Hope you guys went to check out the @OUTLAWS and @TEFPOE when they were here…..

tupac

 

…..”LIKE A MOTH TO A FLAME BURNED BY THE FIRE….” .R.I.P DR. MAYA ANGELOU, an awesome woman never to be forgotten.  I’m also saddened by the passing of RUBY DEE, who quoted “Lord, make me so uncomfortable that I do the very thing I fear”, which is my quote for the year.  And last but not least, St. Louis’ very own TONY SIMMONS  passed as well.  Tony was our own ‘RAY CHARLES’.  He was the piano player for @DENISETHIMES and GALILEE BAPTIST CHURCH.  He was a great guy, good friend, and my favorite blind guy, cause he always told me how good I looked *gigglin & sniff*….all 3 will be missed….

#BIGBANGTHEORY…is EPIC TV!!  Don’t sleep on it, and it’s the first show I’ve ever enjoyed that has absolutely no black people in the cast #racialprogress, and besides, I need something to watch till @SHONDARHIMES and #SCANDAL gets their life together.

*screams & faints* BASKETBALL SEASON IS OVER!  Of course I’m a lil’ disappointed my top 3 teams didn’t make it to the finals. (S/O to the Knicks, Nets, & the Thunder).  But all in all I enjoyed the season.  S/O to the SAN ANTONIO SPURS!  The 2014 Champs!!!  I still can’t believe @KINGJAMES ran off the court like a lil’ mitch….bad sportsmanship can’t be tolerated in this stage of his game….and HE’S STILL BETTER THAN copycat KOBE!

MOVIES…..anybody excited about “THINK LIKE A MAN 2″…..? Anytime I can see @michaelealy I’m blessed. *gigglin*

MUSIC: Make sure you support your favorite artists as JUNE is BLACK MUSIC MONTH!!!  If you need some new favs…..check out my boi @LSEVEN’s new project #INTHEBOOK.  And I’m twiddling my thumbs waiting on @ISSACCATES n @ORDAINED new release!  And down in my sanctified soul is loving the return of #THEGORDONS.  These brothers are ahead of their time, and I’ll be talking more to them and about them….these bros are the ISLEY BROTHERS of GOSPEL MUSIC!!!​
