DJ/ Director D.W. Waterson was named Best Director at the New York Television Festival 2016 Independant Pilot Competition for her hit web series, That’s My DJ. You can see it online at www.thatsmydjseries.com. I had the chance to ask D.W. a series of questions in our Five Questions With segment! Enjoy!
Introduce yourself to our readers.
My name is hey! dw and I am a DJ/drummer who will tear apart the stage and turn it into a sweaty dance party at the drop of a hat.
Tell us a bit about your music and DJ style
For me it’s mostly about “how quickly can I make this crowd lose their mind and take off their clothes”. I jump all around the dance music genre’s playing bass-y deep house tracks to a little bit of tropical all the way to bangers and trap.
Do you have any upcoming shows? For someone who has yet to see you live, how would you explain your live performance?
Right now I’m finishing up my debut EP so just playing some private parties until 2017. As for live, I jump back and forth between mixing and playing live drums while also hyping the crowd till no end. It’s all about creating one epic party moment for me.
If you were asked to suggest only one of your songs for someone to hear, which would it be?
Oh there’s so many!! One of my absolute favourites that ALWAYS gets the crowd going (as well as myself) is A-trak’s remix of the Yeah Yeah Yeah’s ‘Heads Will Roll’ #classicbanger
Canadian Beats is all about Canadian music, so who are your current favourite Canadian bands/artists?
If you haven’t heard of Repartee or Featurette, they are two electronic pop bands that are currently blowing up and will blow your mind.
I’m Jenna, and I am the founder and editor of Canadian Beats. I have had a strong love for Canadian music, which started many years ago. I have a passion for promoting these talented Canadian bands and artists, and that’s how Canadian Beats came to be. I am so proud of what it has become over the last few years, with many talented music lovers and writers coming together to spread the word of Canada’s music.
