Is Deejaying an art?

“I definitely consider it an art.  It’s almost like I’m slowly painting a picture with every record I play.  Each song represents a different stroke of color. Just like a painter expresses his/herself through their paintings, I do the same through music.  Dictating people’s movements, getting a reaction from my audience from the different records I play means a lot to me, especially when I see that everyone is having fun.  I have the opportunity to make an individual who may have had a bad day or week happy for a brief moment, whether it be for several minutes or several hours. That’s important to me being that I’m a person who likes to help others. I’m not a civil rights activist, a politician, or even a good public speaker, but music is my medium to get through to others." EchoSlim (DJ TK)
