What makes you love this?
After I returned from failing out of music college and instead majoring in raves and nightclubs, I returned to New York and wanted to learn to DJ. I won $900 playing a lotto number while working in my dad's deli, and went right to Guitar Center with my winnings. Thank the DJ Gods, the salesman I met told me, "I understand you have CDs, but if you want to really learn the art, you need to use turntables and get records".
I hooked up my new turntables and mixer, but couldn't hear anything... I didn't even know I needed an amp and speakers. Self-Taught, indeed. I got some records from a friend's mom, and began an epic new chapter in my creativity and musicality.
