Nu-Mark - DJ/Musician
Posted: 08/28/2006

Who:
Nu-Mark

What do you do:
DJ/Musician

Where do you work:
Jurassic 5, Los Angeles, California

When did you realize your interest in music:
There was never a deciding point for me to become a musician.  I’ve
played drums since I was twelve and that was when I started to show
interest in both records and hip-hop.

Why DJing:
I used to break with my boy Chris Cooke in junior high. His uncle used
to make us mix tapes to get down to. One day I checked out his uncle
and was really taken aback at how much it related to my percussive
interest.

How would you advise others:
There is an audience for all types of music. Don’t give up. Buy
turntables and practice alone for a while then try to find kids that
are doing what you do.
