Interview By Kim Coco
Introduce yourself to our readers! Let them know your name, where you’re from & the name of the project you dropped!
What’s up . My name is DJEFX. Born in Los Angeles California but raised and living in Miami Florida. Many of you may know me as one of Miami’s hottest nightclub DJs having residencies at some of the biggest clubs in the South Beach area and really- across the globe. I also host my own my Mix show every Thursday on Miami’s 92.7FM radio, I’m an A&R with Fenatiq music, recently signed by Rockwell Talent and I’m a Producer at Audio Vision. I just dropped my latest single EAZY on 10/16/2020 which is available everywhere now on all Platforms so make sure you go check them out!
DJEFX, you have officially debuted your HIGHLY ANTICAPTED single EAZY which had the industry going crazy before it even released. You executively produced this track and put together a winning team for the project. Tell the readers who’s a part of this project?
For this single I put a team together when once I had completed making the beat. Once I heard the beat I was able to envision the team the sound and vibe that I wanted and in the end we really brought that vision to life. The amazing thing is that once I played the track for the guys, everyone TRULY vibed to it. You know because music is a vibe. In order to truly have a hit record the team has to feel that energy from the music just as much as you do. Remember, for years I’ve broken records for artists both on radio and in the clubs so I know a hit when I hear it. On this song we have Baby Wock. He is on the first verse and has actually managed Triple X and rapper Little Pump. We have Jay Burna- an artist who has made music with Trina. He is on the second verse and has songs with Wyclef record and even charted Billboard. He’s official. Isaiah is who you’ll hear on the hook for the single EAZY. He’s signed to Capital records. Rojas On the Beat helped produced this single. He has produced for Triple X. Lastly we have the World Famous Heavy Hitter DJ and on air personality- DJ New Era. This single is just the beginning of what’s to come.

DJEFX, you mentioned your mix show on Miami’s Hottest Hip Hop Station 92.7FM. Tell the reader about that and can other artists submit their music to you to be considered for your show?
Yes! I run my show twice a week on 92.7FM where I go live on the airwaves on Thursdays from 12pm-1pm and Friday 9pm -10pm. I constantly am looking for and scouting new talent and artists. Fresh music. I get thousands of music submissions a week and I go through all of them looking for the newest and hottest song to world premiere. Any artist interested in submitting their music for consideration can send an email to me.

DJEFX , In your DJ career you have been responsible for breaking so many records both in the nightclubs and on radio. Is that part of your recipe for success?
Absolutely I think that has a lot to do with it. I have been in the music scene and DJ’ng for so long that I know what a crowd of people will hear and love. The music is what’s going to set the tone in the room and determine the energy that night. I can hear a record and know whether the crowd will feel that energy too off the bat. In the end all my years of DJ in and around the nightlife scene has helped me network and build the right relationships. It helped me to develop and continue to develop my craft into becoming the monster mogul producer. Like a Khalid or DJ mustard. This industry isn’t for everyone and it’s that the battle of the fittest type of mentality. Let’s say an artist or a DJ or a producer gets too compliant in growing, evolving and learning- even the most talented in the whole world can be outdone by someone who has more drive, hunger and knowledge. You have to put the work in to stay on top. That’s the nature of this game, the music industry
A big part of your music career was spent in the Nightclub scene as a DJ in some of the biggest clubs and festivals both in Miami and World Wide. You have also DJ’d private events for some major celebs. Tell the readers about that.
I have DJ’d so many private events and festivals over the years across the world. I’ve worked Private Events for Dwayne Wade, All Star Weekend, Miami Music week, Ultra Music Festival in 2017 and Private Event for Lebron James, Million Dollar Listening, Reunion Island Resort with Paris Hilton. I’ve had residencies across Miami – Residency Switzerland, Paris, Acapulco, Residencies at Mansion. Victoria’s Secret event,Winter Music Conference, Nike’s 11/11 Experience, Nike Super Bowl 2020, Launch Party, NBA LA Clipper Paul George’s Shoe Launch 2019, amongst other events.
You recently took your knowledge as a DJ and have now become of the most Sought after producers and A&R’s in the business. You recently signed a partnership with Fenatiq Music, along with Rockwell Talent. You also are a producer at Audio Vision Studios in Miami- a High End Boutique Style Studio for A list artists. Tell us about that.
As I said earlier the goals is to take this thing Global. I’m really just getting started. All of my years building my brand, networking with the right people, learning, investing in myself and studying relentlessly which has opened so many new doors for me. Fenatiq Music – which has a Major Distribution with Sony Music . I scout and develop new talent. And I am a partner with Jaycee Luis Fence. He broke a lot of artists in the music scene. He’s my partner. Artists looking to work with me and us can contact me by email.
