DJ Madi(mah-dee)Johnson is in love with music.He has worked with some of the top DJ's,promoters and celebrities in MN.House parties,nightclubs(MYTH,Gabbies,Tabu,Tonix,Escape,Cream,Karma,Crystal),comedy clubs,festivals and weddings.Not to mention his ol'skool hip hop/r&b show Thursday's at 11/12 eastern on Worldcast Radio. He also is DJ on Thefuturefm.
He has proven to be one of the best and elite DJ in his town.His vast knowledge of music keeps him on the cutting edge,his desire to learn and study music history has put him in a world of his own.His vinyl collection is over 20,000 deep.He has read over 100 music biographies,not to mention music industry books on production.He is a fan of the classic album DVD series.And watches music documentaries on a regular basis.Some people say they love music,but Madi backs it up with his endless search to learn music history.
Madi's first time in a nightclub(People's Choice) came only when he was five years old.He heard the DJ cutting "Billie Jean" and he was hooked.Since that day he studied and looked up to MN top DJ's(ray seville,alan freed,megan megamix,ken the wizard stone,chilly charles,john suttels,trava tron,freddy fresh,bro jules & mike mack)He feels every time he touches the tables in some form he has to represent his teachers and thanks them by giving the people the best set he can give.
DJ Madi believes DJing is a art.And every artist must feel free in order to create.A true artist has to please himself before he can please anyone else and understands that with freedom comes responsibility.And freedom is not free by no means.DJ Madi is a true artist.
DJ MADI would like to thank Larry Levan,Grandmaster Flash,Tee Scott,Walter Gibbons,Africa Bambaataa,Kool Herc,Shep Pettibone,Tom Moulton,Frankie Knuckles and Jam Master J for being the pioneers he looks up to.
As you will hear Madi is a very versatile DJ.He loves music from the 70's,80's pop,jazz,house as well as hip and r & b.
