DJ Larry Luv! Tell us a little more about how you got into music
After making the transition from South Carolina to Atlanta in 2003, I diminished my basketball dreams for turntables around the early age of 16 when I started rocking local nightclubs in Atlanta.
I also started from selling compilation CDs of various new music in Atlanta at the time.
We talking high school days like 2005–2006!
Then, I got an opportunity to do a teen club and that was really my start to greatness!
What does your creative process look like when it comes to making music?
I am not a song maker.
I’m a DJ.
I’m The Mood Creator.
My Creative Process is more natural.
Depending on the Crowd of music enthusiasts,; versatility matters.
Some Disc Jockeys practice on hours in their privacy on their sets in the club .
That’s never been my thing, I curate my playlists off the mood walking into an establishment.
You have to see your crowd, feel it.
That’s always been my trick.
What would you say to any aspiring DJs who look up to your success?
