“If you aren’t dancing, I’m not doing my job”, says DJ Whatt (aka DOSVEC) on his official Twitter page. I think it’s safe to say at first listen to his new album “Glimpses” – dropping today – he has you at first beat!
Positively Celebrity got an exclusive interview with the producer/dj extraordinaire to talk about the new album, his music, and what inspires him to make such bad-ass beats.
What made you want to get into music?
It was a passion that became my career.
How did you get your start as a DJ?
I started DJing at Patricks in Tampa, FL
How would you describe your sound?
As DJ Whatt it’s a very party-break electronic sound – As DOSVEC it’s mashups that cover a wide range of production.
What’s your favorite venue?
Industrial Copera, Granada Spain – The place is just NUTS!
Who are some of your favorite DJ’s and why? Musical artists?
GrandMaster Flash <— Pioneer. Music? Give me some old school hip-hop
What’s been the best part about being a DJ? Worst?
Best – Travel. Worst – Fake people ;-(
Best moment in your career so far?
Getting to perform as DOSVEC in Costa Rica, since I am 1st generation American BUT 100% Costa Rican heritage.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Happily married with a dog, couple of kids & a white picket fence ;-p
If you weren’t a DJ, what would you do?
Probably be an Attorney.
Tell us about Glimpses, dropping today (May 23).
Glimpses is an album that reflects a time span in my life in which I thought I was dating someone but in reality I just had another fan from a distance. We all deserve to be treated the way we treat others and it’s never a good thing when we give 100% but the other party doesn’t.
The songs in the album have individual meanings during the time I was with this person and the track listing is in chronological order during the time I was with her.
When I first meet you, you had me as a 1. “Twisted Boy” with the hopes of me saying 2. “Ooh Ahh, I am, Home”. As time passed by I really thought we were approaching 3. “Better Than Dog Days” since I felt we made it to the 4. “Otherside”. You mentioned how I spoil you by me 5. “Shining Down on Whatever You Like” and I did that thinking 6. “You Got The Love” that could 7. “Make Me Better”. I hoped the day would come when you would 8. “Touch My Bridge & Go” but as I waited for 9. “Delta 1406, to, Wake Up” from its delay. I wondered 10. “Where Had The Love Gone”? 11. “The Things You Can’t Get Enough” were obvious as I was the only one giving all I could & 12. “Just The Way You Are Not Alone” my 13. “Addiction” were the “GLIMPSES” you would give me to your true self. I don’t believe in 14. “ET” but I do know when 15. “Rolling In Life” nothing and I mean NOTHING will succeed if YOU don’t give 100%. We almost had it all if you would have let me 16. “Get It In Deep” to your mind, body and soul.
Any other new projects you want to plug?
Any advice for other aspiring DJ’s/Musicians?
Embrace the word NO because that will get you closer 2 YES.
