DJ Rob Lo

SB: Where and when did you start DJing and why?

RB: Ok, So I was Born and Raised in Brooklyn, NY… Brownsville 2 Be Exact… I Started DJ’ing in The Summer of 1987… When I was 13 Yrs Old… I already had some cheap turntables and a mixer for a few years b4 I really Started DJ’ing cause my Dad Owned an Electronics Repair Shop in The Hood… But one Night, because the bouncers lived in our hood and knew us and even though I was only 13, My sister & Cousin took me to a club in Manhattan called “Hearthrobs” where the Legendary Little Louie Vega was DJ’ing… Then and There was when I knew that this was what I wanted to do…

SB: Who were your influences when you started DJing?

RB: Like I said b4… Little Louie Vega… He was definitely my biggest influence… but there was also The Radio DJ’s that I would Listen to every weekend, Like Mr. Magic and Kool DJ Red Alert…

SB: Who do you look up to now? DJ or not . . .

RB: I Look up to The One and Only DJ Jazzy Jeff, and although he is no longer with us, I still look up to DJ AM… He Changed the Game So much…

SB: Where have you DJ’d? Who’s private parties have you DJ’d? Do some name droppin’! lol

RB: Wow, lol… There’s way too many Spots to even begin to mention… I mean I have played and Still play in NY, NJ, CT, FL, PR, Chi-Town, PA, Germany, Switzerland, Austria and God Knows how many places I just can’t remember right now… you can say hundreds if not thousands of venues… Been on TV, Radio, Internet, Mixtape, CD, DVD, LoL… Should I Keep going, lol… and as far as celebs… Damn, They’re have been a lot of sightings at my spots… Recently in the past year I did 2 Private events for the Former NY Knick Legend JOHN STARKS…

SB: Do you regret anything about DJing?

RB: YES!!!!… Even Though I worked very hard… I Wish I would’ve worked even harder… Done More… Got into more Aspects of the game… I think I should have stayed Hungry…

SB: Do you see yourself moving on to producing, remixing artists’ joints, going more into the studio for that kinda stuff?

RB: Been There… Done That… I Produce, Remix & Engineer… Just Never Loved it as much as the Live DJ’ing… I Love being out in the club with Live Crowds… I may get back in the studio real soon… Lets see what happens….

SB: Whats the worst song someone has come up to you and requested?

RB: Uggghhhh… I Get all Kinds of Crazy Requests… LoL… but the one that bothers me the most is when someone asks me to play a song I just played a few mins b4… It’s not my fault u just walked in, or u were in the bathroom, or u just love it that much, lol… mad annoying…

SB: If you weren’t a DJ what do you think you would be doing?

RB: Haahhaaaaaa… Who Knows… I couldn’t Even Imagine…

SB: What would you tell someone who wants to start DJing?

RB: I would tell them “Don’t”… This industry is so saturated and Destroyed… It’s a cruel industry that will chew you up and spit you out… some get Lucky, The rest get Fucked… and ever since the invention of serato… DJ’s literally come a dime a dozen… and if u do get into it… “HAVE A BACKUP PLAN”

SB: What’s next for DJ Rob Lo? Where do you see yourself in 5 years?< p/>

RB: It’s Funny Because I’ve Been asked that question so many times throughout my career and every 5 yrs whether good or bad, It doesn’t end up being as planned… So Imma Just say in 5 years I’ll be wherever God Wants me to be…
