DJ Sagewondah: Interview

 

The first words that comes to your mind when you hear Inspiration, Passion, and Strength

Creation destruction chaos light universe

Who are you? (Answer how you interpret this question)

I dunno, who am i?

Why do you do what you do?

Because I love music and am a music fiend.

When did you know this is what you wanted to do, and what events led you to choose it?

Mixing at Shambhala in 2009, changed my life path. Mixing in front of a bunch of dirty hippies and music lovers opened up my eyes to what I really wanted to do.  I just finished school and decided that I wanted to dj for a living. I started doing beats and I’m still learning to be able to do more festivals and big events. Poor choice for some, great for others. Right now I’m lucky enough to live off this gig. We’ll see what happens in the future. If I see myself not moving, I will probably changed path.

Toughest thing you had to overcome to do what you do? And what/who helped you?

To stop hating. Still do a bit sometimes when I slip, but that’s the 1st thing I have to overcome as soon as I wake up. Some of my homies and myself had long conversations on this and now we do everything to stay positive and constructive in our criticism of things. Hate makes you think backwards and attracts negative energy. It’s better to use that energy in different ways

Has anyone/anything ever inspired you to become who you are (to follow your dreams)? Have you ever inspired anyone directly?

Well yeah for sure….everything around me inspires me to become who I am, who I wanna to be. Everyone that I meet directly and indirectly inspires me. If ever you see someone struggling and hating life, doesn’t that inspire you not to do what that person does? I hope I’ve inspired someone in my life, but I don’t really think of that. You should ask around, I dunno if I’ve inspired anyone to be honest. lol

One mistake that you made in your journey? How have you learnt from them?

Not believing in myself enough when I first had turntables. I learned with time and experience. Nowadays, everybody is super confident when they start mixing, sometimes too much lol. But the new generation of djs are very inspiring. Very different way of seing things. I wouldn’t say better, but very different and interesting.

Upcoming projects? Plans/goal? (about anything, if you have any)

This summer, i’m putting an EP of 3 tracks  as Mr.Touré!. It’ll be my official introduction as a producer. I feel very excited about this cause It’s something new to me. This is a house project inspired by rap, rnb & soul. Just putting this out will be a big step for me! Like an life objective complete, a dream come through

What advice would you give to other people? (Just about life in general - It could be about anything)

Find a passion. Live it as simply as possible, don’t worry too much and work a lot. Work your life out. Live your passion. All that good stuff. Don’t get trapped. Travel if you can. Wisdom comes faster when you travel…stay young at heart I dunno same bullshit you hear everywhere lol

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)

RNB 4 Life!  Holla!
