Every Dj is not a Scratch Master? Why is Dj Popo Different?
Purveyor of deep, infectious dance grooves and a feel-good atmosphere. That’s how most describe Dj Popo. Never afraid to go too deep, his emotive musical selections are his own therapy. Having grown up on a combination of Hip Hop, Caribbean, Reggaeton, R&B, and more PoPo is not deemed a scratch master for no reason. Popo’s set over time became infused with his own love for both hip-hop and hard-hitting mixes and blends. Today, this translates into sets where he picks apart and infuses together all the pieces of this music that he loves best: beautiful synth work, ethereal backdrops, brooding basslines, and occasional vocal hooks… all on top of a pronounced foot-shuffling sound.
Born in Brooklyn, New York, as a toddler Dj Popo was spinning records. Things started with his Dad giving him a rotation of music to learn. Learning the perfect breaks in records started with Alicia Myers and Mary J. Not knowing yet, what the records meant, he found out at a young age to blend, scratch and mix at a very young age.
A very active member of the music scene, Popo is no stranger to the ups-and-downs of a small-town music scene. Though he loves playing in nightclubs, patios and special events, his love for music goes beyond the spectrum of mixing tunes. As a drummer, Dj, and promoter, he has found plenty of ways to express himself musically. He also likes to post original content with original mixes on social media, @Djpopo01 – You can see and hear his passion, through each mix.
For Popo, it’s all about mood and a deep, hypnotic groove… playing those tracks that get you tapping your feet and nodding your head without you realizing it, regardless of genre, tempo, style, or release date.
