Often overlooked, but a vital part of getting tracks spins outside of playlists and internet promotion, DJs remain very important today. Kevin Benjamin, better known as DJKB, is a 19-year-old DJ propelling out of Kearny, New Jersey. He started his career in 2014 as one of the youngest DJs and moved away from his hometown to avoid close-minded individuals. Now, DJKB is opening for major acts like Lil Durk, Cardi B, YoungBoy Never Broke Again, Roddy Ricch, and many more. Check out our conversation with DJKB below.
Conversations with DJs vary depending on who we’re speaking to. If it’s the kids, I always tell them to stay positive and stay in school and to always follow their dream. Talking to artist, I support all of them. Giving club spins, to listening to they’re track in my email, to giving them personal advice on how to grow as an artist. However, every conversation is positive and always keeps myself and who I’m communicating with motivated.
