triad dj profile
DJ handle: DJ Savage
What it means: In my younger years, I was a party animal. One minute I would be spinning, five minutes later I’d be on the dance floor while still spinning, so people started calling me a savage; it just stuck with me.
Real name: Danjon Meredith
What I play: I actually still spin occasionally but host a lot now mainly.
Upcoming shows: Each and every Thursday at Lotus Lounge
When you became a DJ: I became a DJ officially back in 2003.
Influences: DJ Jazzy Jeff, DJ Jelly, DJ Drama
First pro gig: It was in fall of 2006 when I played at the Greensboro Ballroom.
Studio work: I have a lot of mixtapes on DatPiff.com, just search DJ Savage, and I also run a studio and produce records under the banner Team Fresh Muzik Group.
Favorite technique: Transitions, because they are definitely essential to the mix.
Signature mix: Probably my first mixtape One Last Kiss Vol.1. I mixed it all the way though, nonstop at 70 minutes.
Personal playlist: Jay-Z, Wiz Khalifa, Big Sean, Big KRIT, Linkin Park
Favorite albums: Webbie — Savage Life 1&2, Outkast — Aquemini, Jay-Z — The Blueprint, Linkin Park — Minutes To Midnight
