Jijuan’s relationship with music was etched in stone in the late 90s with the free trial version of Fruity Loops (a production editing software). As a lover of old school, funk and soul, Jijuan would mesh his modern drum patterns to samples of old vinyl his parents had hundreds of. “My parents had a LOT of records on vinyl, from Tchaikovsky to WAR – we listened to pretty much everything.” This appreciation for mixing music led him to a hobby of mixtape compilation, and eventually, working for B-Boy Productions.
Night owl or morning person?
I’m definitely a morning person. I look forward to getting up and knocking things off of my many to-do lists.
Social media platform of choice?
I drink coffee almost every day, but I’ve never ordered anything from Starbucks! I brew my own!
I’m really digging the funk/soul projects from Childish Gambino lately.
Go-to party tracks?
Anything by Prince, or 90s R&B!
