Smiles, only recollections of chillhood could bring, on everyone faces. This tells me I am in the right place, when at a Dj Popo party. Sounds of your Grandma’s favorite song, mixed and paired perfectly with a modern twerk song. How can you not be in a good space, while listening to a Dj Popo mix.
Most Disc Jockeys practice for years to perfect the art of blending records. Then there is Dj Popo who spends his free time, when not deejaying a gig, teaching others how to Dj. However Dj Popo had a lot of hands on learning at an early age. Standing in the shadows of greats at one point, shows in every set. In the job trainning like this, is one of the only ways someone can get closely as skilled as Dj Popo behind the 1’s and 2’s. Here is a little bit of more information on the Scratchmaster himself:
“Purveyor of deep, infectious dance grooves and a feel-good atmosphere. That’s how most describe Dj Popo. Never afraid to go too deep, his emotive musical selections are his own therapy. Having grown up on a combination of Hip Hop, Caribbean, Reggaeton, R&B, and more PoPo is not deemed a scratch master for no reason. Popo’s set over time became infused with his own love for both hip-hop and hard-hitting mixes and blends. Today, this translates into sets where he picks apart and infuses together all the pieces of this music that he loves best: beautiful synth work, ethereal backdrops, brooding basslines, and occasional vocal hooks… all on top of a pronounced foot-shuffling sounds. There’s has not been a day that music hasn’t dominated Popo’s daily life.
Born in Brooklyn, New York, with a Panamanian background, you know the catalog of such Dj would be eclectic in range and genres. Many may not know that from a toddler Dj Popo was spinning records. Things started with his Dad giving him a rotation of music to learn. Learning the perfect breaks in records started with Alicia Myers and Mary J. Not knowing yet, what the records meant, he found out at a young age to blend, scratch and mix at a very young age.
There’s no limit to what you may end up jamming out to when at a Popo party. He will take the most old school impossible record and mix it with a new school track, no other Dj would try. Can thank the different cultures that makeup Dj Popo. Spending his young life all the way up to current, diverse music will keep you wanting to only attend Dj Popo’s parties. Every Dj has its own style. Being well versed in music from your parent’s music, all the way up to the current top charters, you can hear him playing on the 957 Jamz Radio (Alabama). “
