SIX’9


Please tell our readers who you are and what you do?


I am a DJ/ Producer/ Manager/ and Co-founder of Bass Crimes Entertainment. We are a Techno/Tech House/House oriented lifestyle brand. We host a weekly guest mix series called "The Bass Crimes Takeover



How would you describe your style and genre?


I'm different because I don't believe in the whole "genre" thing. I produce everything however my favorite is Techno and Tech House. When Djing I play what fits perfectly for the vibe or experience. Within reason of course. II wont play a techno set and drop a edm song. What im saying is i like to switch things up and take people on a journey with some sexy hard beats. I hate hearing the same thing the entire night when im out so I cater my DJing to that as well. If it sounds good, it sounds good.




Who are your biggest influences and idols … and why? Do you have any idols? Are you a super fan of anyone? (Dead or alive, musician or non-musician)


My all time Idol is Jay-z. I got into electronic music pretty late, in 2012. Before that i loved hip hop and still do. However I always listened to JAY-Z throughout the years. It wasn't until two years ago that I got another copy of The Blueprint album and listened to a track called "U don't know" more carefully then i did in the past. All of a sudden things in my head clicked. I was an NCAA basketball player, hence the name SIX'9. After stopping basketball I got lost. For a few years I didn't know what to do. I always wanted to be a music producer and DJ. I am an amazing dancer as well. The whole Bass Crimes thing has been driving me to go beyond limits that i thought I had put on me by society, family, and friends. Just looking at what Jay did and how he did it coincided with the way i do things. Other than him I love and appreciate anyone who puts out good music. When it comes to my bread and butter, the underground I listen to everybody. I feel as of its a gift and a curse when it comes to DJing because i want to play techno and tech house and house etc. However that's the beauty of DJing. Crafting your sets so they are unique and not like anyone else. Same thing goes for producing. I see too many guys saying i sound like Mark Knight yet I cant get any gigs. In my opinion who cares if you do. If you aren't yourself you rob the world of your individuality. Being unique and working hard is something i stand by when it comes to my life, Bass Crimes Entertainment, and my own productions. This is something I see in successful people in general not just JAY-Z.




What´s new right now? What should our readers know about that is coming up from you?


For productions I have my first track on Beatport coming August 15. Its going to be a part of The Puchero Records (Costa RIca) various artists album. I'm releasing a track called "Voicemail". Its a melodic sexy tech house track that came about when one of my artists sent me a audio whats app message. I emailed the message to myself. Did the best i could because the vocal want recorded in a studio and came out with a nice unique track. Thats isbasically my production style, I like to do situational stuff. The Voicemail idea came as soon as i heard the message.

When it comes to Bass Crimes Entertainment, we are releasing our third free album. The artists on there are ones managed by myself and some are close friends of ours. The album will be out this Fall and it will be called. "Bass Crimes Takeover Volume 3: The Launch". It is going to signify the launch of Bass Crimes Records. We are planing a big launch party as well.
