Go DJ She Wants to DeeJay!




I have always loved music and wanted to work in radio. I've been a DJ in my head and on the dance floor, but wouldn't have actually made the leap to try to do it without living here in Japan. The DJ capital country. All the equipment, venues, and opportunities you need!


At this moment, I actually have no idea what I'm doing, except playing the music I like. If it weren't for all of my DJ friends around me to guide my purchases on equipment and help me out in anyway I need, I'd really be lost. Thank you DJ Herk and Jason for always being one instant message away on info about Serato and Macs.

DJ C. Geez, who is my vinyl sensei and anti-Serato only, nicknamed me DJ S-Mix last year for only having a Serato and mixer for the longest, until I moved and he helped me find my 12s! Arigato, the headaches shall begin:) WAX ON, WAX OFF! Literally.

My friend Monique, party organizer, was looking for a female DJ for her girly "Pretty in Pink" party this summer. I told her I have my equipment but I'm not ready to do a party. She told me there will be other DJs, and I'd be fine in a month, just get the music together. So I gathered my selection on the Serato and figured out how to work it. Of course my main concern besides Hip Hop and the girly commercial Rap&B for the party, was to play my favorite club genre, Baltimore Club music. It just so happened that the Baltimore Club Queen DJ K-Swift passed away just weeks before my 1st party. I was so hurt, and hope to be a piece of the Club DJ that she was, R.I.P.
I was trying to think of a name, not any of my tons of nicknames I already had, but something else. I always use the D.A.I. in my name "day", hence DaiTime. I spoke to my dad to come up with some more. I'm in Japan, and starting my career here so what better than being in Japan, "The Land of the Rising Sun", then to be DJ Dai*Light. It all blends with my theme of of the "Dai", and shining light.
The Pretty in Pink party was my first ever DJ experience, no cuttin/skratchin, just making sure the music comes out right and blends. I was so nervous, but with all of my friends and Sorors there, and other DJs varying their music and style, it was so much fun. Shout out to all those who were there from BMore! Thank you for rockin off with me BJ!

The party was fun and the guavaberry liquor was delicious too! Besides that fact that I had to wear my #1 least favorite color-Pink, I had a ball! Looking forward to the next one.
