Before you continue reading, I want you to experience the versatile style that defines DJ B-TIPS. So mute or pause whatever you’ve got on, and give this a listen.
Now, check out this insider’s interview!
HC: Who is the most interesting person you’ve worked with so far?
B-TIPS: I’d have to say BONICS. He taught me the most important lesson – that being humble should be your M.O. I had the opportunity to train and intern with him, and I really saw that he was willing to go the extra mile.
HC: Tell us about new venture in teaching.
B-TIPS: Well, I’ll be teaching Music Technology and DJ-ing to grades 6-12 at the Dwight School in New York.
HC: Do you have any prior experience with teaching?
B-TIPS: I’ve had some individuals as private clients, but this will be my first time teaching music classes and using lesson plans. During my time at the University of Pittsburgh, I helped other college students by tutoring in the ARC [Academic Resource Center].
HC: There are many stereotypes and generalizations about modern DJs. What sets you apart?
B-TIPS: I play every genre, not just progressive, hip-hop and house. I really play it all. Sometimes, things can get a little bizarre.
HC: Bizarre? What is an example of something crazy you’ve done on a mix?
B-TIPS: I like to center my mixes on themes. I once did one themed on fruit. There’s another one called Cancerfish, it samples an interview I did of a guy talking about Big Mouth Bass fishing.
