DJ Zimmie interviews veteran DJs, producers and performers to hear their story and hopefully learn about what to do, what not to do and maybe where to eat.
Ep. 32 - DJ Buck Rodgers
In this episode Buck & I discuss hitting the ceiling in Indianapolis before transitioning to Austin, competing and winning in both Red Bull 3Style and The Goldies, country music DJs, Sony's recent attacks on DJs and pork chops.
Ep. 31 - Sarin Moddle
I had the pleasure of meeting Sarin during our (DJ Jazzy Jeff) NYE gig at the Northern Bass Festival in Auckland, New Zealand. Her team provided some essential glue to keep the festival running smoothly but also maintained a very family-like vibe. We stayed in contact and had some great conversations about gigs, festivals, the entertainment industry in general and more. She's got 183 job titles and is a total badass. Get your learn on!
Ep. 30 - DJ Trayze
"I worked my after school job. I worked way too many hours and got horrible grades to take every penny I made, all throughout high school to go spend it on records." I honestly can't think of one thing in the world of DJing that Trayze DOESN'T do. He's an extremely well rounded DJ, a producer of remixes and original music, a DJ instructor and a 2x world-finalist battle DJ, amongst other things. We rap about his story, the DJ scene and living through the Covid19 lockdown. Stay home, wash your hands and tune in! (please excuse some less-than-stellar audio at times, we were also doing some livestreaming and it got hectic)
Ep. 29 - Nick Bike
It's weird how good the DJs in Canada are. I remember getting mixes and edits from The Freshest and the Eh! Team and being blown away. Nick Bike started out DJing on 2 computers running Windows Media Player and now sits perfectly alongside Canada's finest. We discuss figuring your DJ career out as you go, making edits that have ended up in most DJs crates and knowing when to (and when not to) retire songs.
Ep. 28 - Case Bloom
Case Bloom's journey to his current position as a staple in the Nashville music scene was a long and windy one. We discuss his tenure in the super dope music market of Philly, building parties that have lasted 12+ years, gentrified foods and of course, the current state of DJing. Case is also the man behind amazing DJ (and non-DJ) bag company Tucker & Bloom (great story). Listen up and if you're in Nashville, do and eat what Mayor Case tells you!
Ep. 27 - Emmaculate
Emmaculate is an essential member of the newest generation of house music producers and DJs from Chicago. We discuss growing up as a white suburbanite kid in the shadow of the legendary Chicago music scene, dabbling in production and DJing across both hip-hop and house music as well as the moves he made to position himself alongside legends like the Chosen Few DJs. From his early hip-hop group to his position at T's Box Records with Terry Hunter to producing chart-topping house music, we cover a wealth of knowledge for anyone making moves in the DJ / production world. We even respond to some email questions about controllers and female DJs.

Dj Zimmie and the extra credit podcast
Great content! Anyone who is a dj or interested in dj culture can take away a great deal with everything this podcast has to offer. Zimmie keep up your efforts it's all ver much appreciated.
Music history and future in one
This podcast has educated my musical knowledge more than any class I ever took in college. Love that the interviews are poignant for professional DJs and casual music lovers alike.
Interesting look into a world that anyone with ears is familiar with but may know nothing about
It's great that they're done in a way where people who don't have an existing knowledge of the subject (me) can enjoy it just as much as someone who knows this industry very well. There's a nice range of guests and topics with a common thread that keeps each one entertaining. I marathoned a good portion of them and each one was just as interesting as the last. Looking forward to the ones to come! Coffee tips don't hurt either.
