About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Don't wake up at 70, wondering where the hell it all went. And, more tangibly: soundcloud.com/brahj

ABOUT ME

I am a producer and DJ based in Detroit, MI, USA and release on & work as a general manager for Motech Records. Other than music, I've never lived in one place for too long - dance the night away.

PHILOSOPHY

Part hedonism and far too many other -isms - we can talk about it when you surf here haha.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Euromaidan on NYE 2014. First time I've ever cried tears of joy. The feeling was indescribable. Slava Ukraini!

Teach, Learn, Share

Could teach about producing/ mixing down music (more so electronic). Also could help with photoshop/ design, logos, web front/back end (& cloud computing architectures!). Also, how to make a mean stirfry, I can definitely teach you this (NOTE: tacos have now been added to the repertoire).
