I recently had the pleasure of sitting down with DJ FeelGoodSmalls for an Exclusive Interview. She is one of Toronto’s hottest DJ’s and has worked with such brands as Nike, Grey Goose Vodka, Lazy Pants and Coca-Cola. This is one interview you don’t want to miss.
So tell our viewers on where you’re from?
I am from a small town just outside of Toronto. I’m a city girl by location, country girl by heart.
When did you realize that DJing was going to be a part of you?
I’ve always had a strong passion for music, but it was when I moved to a big city I realized how I could take that passion beyond just a play list and share it with the world
Are there any DJ’s who inspired you to become the DJ you are today?
Many DJ’s have inspired me, and continue to inspire me daily. Seeing their progress only pushes me further. From a far I have always looked up to @Atrak, a Canadian turntablist, record producer and owner of the record label Fool’s Gold. However, closer to home I have constantly been pushed and motivated by Toronto based DJ @DJSoundbwoy.
What type of music do you play and what type of music pumps the crowed more in your opinion?
I consider myself to be an open format DJ which means I spin a variety of music in one night. However I typically find myself spinning hip-hop, upbeat vibes of Nu-Disco and Indie dance. You can check out my mixes on my SoundCloud Page
How does it feel to see the crowd responding positively to you?
There is no better feeling then taking a crowd on a musical journey. Knowing that your music is giving people a memorable night is an unforgettable feeling.
You probably get this a lot but where did the name DJ FeelGoodSmalls come from if you don’t mind me asking?
Not at all, it is actually the name of my snowboard. I used to be a very avid snowboarder and I ride on nothing but the Burton FeelGoodSmalls
What is the best city you spun in and why?
Last year I had to opportunity to tour for a month in China. Throughout the tour I brought my unique style to lucky audiences in: Beijing, Qingdao, Hangzhou and Shanghai. This was an unreal experience because I got to bring my North American vibe to a country on the other side of the world and they loved it!
In your opinion what is best, vinyl or digital?
I only know one way, and that’s vinyl.
Where can our viewers contact you or listen to your work?
I am on all forms of social media!
