DJ Whit Taylor Follows Her Dreams
“When I’m on stage I feel unstoppable. I feel as if the entire world is in my hands and everyone’s spirit blends into mine. When I create the atmosphere DJing, my world stops. The beat rushes through my veins.”
Luckily, I had the chance to sit down with DJ Whit receiving the opportunity to understand her story and learn what makes her passionate about creating music. Of course I wanted to get the inside scoop of what her ultimate goal was, which is to become an established international DJ and music producer based in Ibiza, Spain. (A Balearic Island that is well known for its nightlife scene.) Surprisingly this location fits DJ Whit perfectly since she utilizes her skills for lounges, clubs, private celebrations, weddings, and even corporate events.
I also questioned some of her favorite inspirational artists and she replied, “I start with my roots playing the records and mixing it up for the crowd to create that energy, vibe and experience.” Larry Levan, a famous DJ in New York City, known as the generator of house music, who focused his craft at Paradise Garage Lounge, is one of her favorites. Larry Levan holds that position towards Whit because of his ability to become a powerful crowd motivator. However her favorite music producer is Black Coffee, a South African DJ whose music she believes speaks to the soul.
Since 2011, DJ Whit has mastered her craft expanding her boarders in Columbus, Ohio to overseas at the Royal Caribbean’s largest and most innovative cruise ship, The Anthem of The Seas. Not to mention she’s collaborated with many well-known brands, such as: Beats By Dre, Royal Caribbean International, The Ohio State University, The Jimmy Fallon Show, Columbus Fashion Week, State Farm and much more. You can say DJ Whit's definitely a determined go-getter who believes in following her dreams! :)
As we furthered our conversation, she really shifted my perspective of the industry. Needless to say I left our table having more respect for the hard work and dedication that goes into DJing. After attending a couple local events supporting her preformances, I can personally say she sets the atmosphere and inspires me to let go and dance!
