DJ MISSY JAY is among a handful of female DJs worldwide that have risen to the top in a profession dominated by men. She wants women with music in their soul that have aspirations as a DJ to know they can succeed and offers some sage advice and a look at what awaits those with drive, determination and talent.
“Winning a couple of DJ contests in my career has helped me a lot in terms of being exposed in several industry magazines, reviews and interviews on FM Radios (Radio Kiss Kiss NDR) and even on MTV!” said Missy Jay. “I am really grateful to Matrix Magazine in Italy and CEO Fabio Carnevali NDR, but also to Tilllate Magazine and director David Faults NDR.”
Missy Jay advises DJs to learn all they can about the technical aspects of producing the music they want to make. Many artists become so wrapped up in creating new beats they lose sight of the role that equipment and technical knowledge plays in the process. She noted that DJs need the ability to read their audience and that the need for exposure and publicity is ongoing. DJs should enter every contest they can manage, actively promote themselves through social media, and upload their music to digital sites.
The Djane followed her own advice on the way to the top, winning the MATRIX FEMALE DJ CONTEST in Milan, Italy and also participated in the WORLD TOP GIRLS DJ CONTEST in France where she won the title Best Female European DJ. Those titles earned her interviews in numerous print and broadcast media. She’s appeared on TV, given interviews on radios and been featured in magazines that includes TILLLATE MAGAZINE. “It has been great fun,” said Missy Jay. “I met an extensive number of people during my collaboration with the magazine and it gave me a big push.
A few years after winning the Matrix DJ Contest, I accepted another DJ challenge. It brought me more success and more traveling, one of the most exciting parts of my job as I have been able to meet new people and see new cultures and places.”
