I was an intern many moons ago and had the opportunity to work this event. Great for any beginner DJ or a DJ who wants to take their game to the next level. Added bonus the event is in Atlantic City and is always a whole lot of fun.

Food for thought —
Let’s talk about “mindset”...specifically, ambition. Hunger and ambition are life -- that’s my game. I believe in it so much, which is why I love this community...but be careful of one thing. Being hungry just for the sake of “success,” money, clout, validation...that’s a dangerous formula that can lead to burnout. Instead, learn to do it for the process, not the prizes. The process -- THAT’S where you perfect your craft, where you become better.
