Introduce yourself? Hometown? Where do you currently reside? 1 fun fact about yourself

Hi my name is Joey. My hometown is Birmingham, MI. I currently live in Hamtramck, a small city within the city of Detroit. One fun fact is that I never went to Senior Prom!

If you could place a dj booth anywhere in the world… where would it be & what would you play?

On a blimp and I would fly it around blasting beats

Favorite collective/scene at the moment?

Lately ive been even more in love with Detroit and all the artists that live here…. Could write a book on it! But elsewhere I love everything Mdo/Sample Park/Terry Radio/West Mineral/Kansas people are doing – love the sound the aesthetic and the energy. Seems like cool stuff is going on in Toronto, Montreal, Pittsburgh, and Philadelphia. Also love the Base Camp Beta podcasts – hearing a lot of great people discuss the contemporary scene/industry/landscape.

Singing & dancing to my parents Was Not Was/Sade/Steely Dan records with one of those big bright plastic kiddie microphones.
