DJ Jazzy Jeff speaks on EDM
DJ Jazzy Jeff is probably best known to the public for his production work with Will Smith (Parents Just Don’t Understand) and his recurring role in the show "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air." However, his career started as a disc jockey almost three decades ago, and Jazzy Jeff remains one of the more reputable figures who can offer perspective. He recently sat down for an interview, speaking on the rise of electronic dance music and the role of a disc jockey. Jazzy Jeff touches on a handful of topical issues, noting the goal of the DJ has never been to silo themselves into certain genres. The goal has always been to play value-add music. Speaking on electronic dance music, he acknowledges the popularity has benefited disc jockeys to an extent, but does see it leveling off, at which point, individuals will have to show the fans what they actually bring to the table.
