Conversations with DJ Vince

Today we’d like to introduce you to DJ Vince.

Hi DJ, so excited to have you on the platform. So before we get into questions about your work-life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today?
I started my career as a party promoter working in blue springs. A few parties later I found interest in the DJ aspect of the party. I came back the next week with a laptop, DJ software and music. From the looks of things, it worked out for me. In time I took my skills to a spot which was known as club sweat. Which where things really began to get serious. Along the way and artist by the name of Kstylis approached me as an up and coming artist wanting his song played. Me being new to the game I just wanted to network and meet artist that was inspired just as much as me. The first part of the moment was rough. Was told no while sending out his music countless times. That didn’t stop us. Later on, together we toured to over 45 states and 5 countries and made a staple in the music industry. Months later I was invited to appear and DJ live on Revolt TV. First and only DJ in the Midwest to get that opportunity. A few months later I took my talents to California and became official DJ and media owner of the biggest marijuana brand in the world. “Runtz”. Which has been my current journey for the last few years. Working hand in hand with the brand to this day as well. I’m still very active in my hometown of Kansas City working on media and marketing with industry Artist, many brands, and a proud member of #bikelifekc. Outside all the business and branding I can’t live without my dirtbikes.

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
Probably the roughest path you can imagine. Wouldn’t ever in a million years call it a “road”. Over the last 12 years, I’ve created a road. That being said no one talks about the broke days and nights no one ever believed in you. Even family to a certain extent. I didn’t see a check until later in my career when touring started. Some DJs and artist never get there with years of sacrifice and hard work it’s not for the weak whatsoever. 4 years ago, I lost my mom and few years after my grandpa. Which was my biggest support system as well. Overcoming that was impossible but I learned to get thru the days the best I can. I just know for sure they both are proud of me!!!

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
I have an umbrella of skills or assets as I call them. Along the DJ journey I started graphic design, music engineering, production, video production, clothing line, and few other things that contribute to the overall brand. What separates me from others is when I want something no matter it is, I will always find a way and I waste no time doing it. Things I’m most proud of is traveling the world to do what I love. Creating a brand that can further expand me and others in life.

Can you talk to us about how you think about risk?
Risk is really everything thru the whole way and it never stops. The moment you stop taking risk is when you become still. Risks is what separates the people who really want it. My first risk was college or stay home and DJ. Pretty stupid risk, right? Not for me. Risk will always be in front of you. It’s either a blessing or a lesson.
