DJ Spotlight: Chris Legend
Believe the hype
DJ Chris Legend is just that - a legend. This DC DJ stans Drake (same) and knows pretty much every EDM bop (goals). With a killer fashion sense and artistic eye, you can feel his inspiring aura in everything he does- and everything he plays. Believe the hype- it doesn’t get better than this.
Let's start from the beginning. Where are you from?
I was born in El Paso, Texas but growing up I moved around a lot. From EL Paso, to Long Beach California, to Oregon, to San Antonio, TX so its hard for me to claim a hometown.
Got it, got it. So, what's the tea -- are you single or taken?
Sometimes it be like that. What are you doing when you're not at ((305))?
When I'm not here, I'm studying for school or working on growing my company Premiere Celebrations-- where me and my team provide entertainment (Dj, lighting, Photo Booth and MC) services for all kinds of events.
Oh, wow. Sounds like you definitely know how to party. Speaking of, what's the craziest party you've ever been to?
When I was in High School, the movie Project X came out. Being who I am, I had to recreate this in my home (Thanks mom!). I hosted an open invite party at my house with a few friends, mostly in my backyard, complete with a DJ, small baby pool filled with drinks and ice, fire pit, (I wasn't a DJ at this point) and somehow managed to convince a tattoo artist to work in my kitchen (people were actually getting tatted in my kitchen). It definitely got out of hand and the cops came twice to advise about noise complaints. Luckily it started raining around 1am and that shut the party down.
Def a cat person
Chris calls him Kittles, but his government name is Oreo.
OMG. That sounds iconic. Is there anything else on your bucket list you want to check off?
One thing I want to accomplish before I leave this earth is to leave a positive legacy, to be an inspiration for people and just to be present long after I am gone.
I get that. Is there a person who has done that for you in your life?
I can't live without my Mom, she's the strongest woman I know, and my biggest inspiration. She came to the U.S.A. alone at age 20, knowing zero people, zero english, and today she is a business owner and a U.S. Citizen. I would be nothing without her.
Moms are great! Ok, let's talk about music -- what's your favorite song?
No matter where I am or what I'm doing in the moment, if "Best I Ever Had" by Drake comes on, I'm definitely going to sing along.
That song is a BOP. What style of music do you love most?
My favorite genres of music have to be Deep/Future house ( stuff like Don Diablo, Oliver Heldens, Shaun Frank, Duke Dumont, etc.) and Trap EDM (NGTMRE, DJ Snake, SAYMYNAME, Jauz, etc.).
Same. It's not joke we love high-energy stuff here at ((305)). So, what can the people expect if they attend one of your classes?
During my classes you can expect a great energy between the instructor and myself. When I'm DJing you can expect every song during the warm up to be high energy and upbeat and during the hip hop you can expect to feel sexy, sweaty and like your at one of the hottest clubs in your city.
