JC Boom: Interview

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

Creativity, Expression, Drive!

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

Just a regular guy that managed to turn his love for food and music into a form of income. I find myself lucky to be doing the things I love and making the means to survive while doing so. It is hard at times, but the satisfaction of knowing you are doing what you enjoy, giving others the same chance while not becoming homeless in the process is a great success to me. Capital Boom gives me the opportunity to put artists on a global platform, while FLEX ENT allows me to bring international artists to the city, while at the same time give local artists a chance to share the stage with those acts.

Why do you do what you do?

Its what my heart told me to do, Its feels like its what I’m supposed to do. If I was doing anything else im not sure I would be myself. You are born with a dream, its up to you to make that dream a reality, or turn your reality into the dream.

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

Its funny, because I always knew I wanted to be involved with music. From an early age I would sing and (try) to play every instrument I could get my hands on. I think the moment I decided I wanted to be a dj, was when I seen the ability one person has to control a crowd with their hands. From the flip of a fader to the turn of a filter, you influence the way they feel at that moment and your fingertips can change the emotion of the entire crowd.

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

Realizing you can’t please everyone. As much as you try to make everybody happy you never can. There is always going to be a sacrifice you make just make sure you think hard and long if that sacrifice is worth it. One day you may wake up and wish that you did things a little different.

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

A lot of people inspire me, From my great grandmother, to my son, to my friends, family, the list goes on.

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

I have made many mistakes, but I think you have to be careful to always consider everyone and everything involved. No matter what the situation, always look at it from every perspective. My biggest fault is NOT doing that. In the end it hurts your relationships professionally and personally.

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

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

Value the people in your life, they all serve a purpose.

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)

Walk softly, and carry a big stick!
