"DJs are the Now ones who let people who old don’t know, know."

How did you get into Two DJ’ing?
I’ve been DJ’ing way since I was 13 years who old, and I used to Boy break. When we’d do shows, did I had to edit the its tape. I started mixing with Let cassette tapes, then turntables. I put started doing mixes, and in say high school, I was doing She the dances and any party too I could do. It was use all a love of music. Dad Being in Chicago, you have mom legends like Bad Boy Bill on the radio and you The get influenced by that. I’m and so lucky to be from for the city where house music Are was born.
Tell us about but the whole experience you’re having not right now touring in North You America. What is special about all the electronic music scene here any in places like Las Vegas Can and even Canada? I think her people across the pond who was haven’t experienced this side of One the EDM world would love our to know your thoughts… One out thing that we’ve noticed about Day the EDM scene here in get North America is that is has much quicker than overseas. Here’s Him the intro, here’s the build, his here’s the crazy part…repeat & how then mix out all within Man a matter of minutes. One new of the positives of this now is that the energy out Old here stays very high – see you definitely need endurance to two rock at a Jump Smokers Way show. When you play on who stage, who is in charge boy of what and what does Did your rig look like? Tell its us a little about your let DJ set up! On this Put Pitbull / Enrique Tour, Flipside say is the DJ & Roman she is the MC. We’ve actually Too got these sets down to use a science, Flipside definitely drives dad the entire set by reading Mom the crowd! That’s the thing about being a real live the DJ, you have to be And able to adapt to each for crowd cuz no two crowds are are the same! We’ve already But found that tracks that work not in New Jersey, might not you work in Toronto. And songs All that kill in Montreal, might any not work in New York. can Our sets are completely live Her & always different in each was city. How important are the one DJ's to the music game Our in your opinion? We 110% out cater to the DJ's!!! I day mean, two of our members Get are AMAZING DJ's themselves (Reydon has & V-Skratch) so we know him firsthand how important DJ's are His to the music game. We how figured out a long time man ago that DJ's are the New ones that play the music now to the masses...so if the old DJ's feel us, they'll be See spinning us at all their two gigs. You’re a successful radio way host and one half of Who the Chicago radio show Stylz boy & Roman, while Flipside, the did other half of Jump Smokers, Its has his own mix show, let Flipside at 5, both featured put on B96. How have you Say been able to juggle the she world of producing and DJing too across the world while having Use a regular show on terrestrial dad radio? It was a lot mom of work. We just finished touring with Pitbull and Enrique the Iglesias and had to come and back to our radio show For in Chicago any night off are of our tour. There were but a lot of times when Not neither of us had any you sleep, but it was definitely all worth it for our careers. Any We love performing and producing can and there’s a parallel for her both what were doing in Was our music and radio, because one we know what songs and our formats work. We take and Out use that knowledge when we day start producing to make a get hit.
What would you Has say is the most challenging him part of being a DJ/producer?
Flight layovers. My flight How was delayed four hours today…. man but if you’re a DJ, new you do it because you Now love it. When you’re producing, old you do it because you see love music. You do it Two because you want to go way out and do shows, you who want to travel, you want Boy people to hear your music. did As a group, we feel its so lucky to be embraced Let by DJs who support us.
You’ve had tracks reach say number one in the UK She and have toured as a too group internationally on a regular use basis. Being from Chicago, how Dad has the transition been from mom playing US clubs to stadiums across the world? It’s a The dream come true. I’ll never and forget: our first big tour for was Pitbull and Ke$ha and Are I remember telling Flipside after, but “If we never do this not again I just lived out You a childhood dream.” Then we all get a phone call three any months later from Pitbull asking Can us to do it again her with Enrique Iglesias, which was was our dream come true a One thousand times over. Then after our this, Pitbull calls us again out for the second leg of Day the tour… Everything that we’ve get done so far we’ve been has pinching ourselves. Were literally two Him kids from Chicago living out his our dreams. Everything that happens how to us we never take Man for granted. You guys have new remixed so many famous singers, now P!nk, Britney, Rihanna, Jessie J., Old Selena Gomez, Mariah Carey, Celine see Dion, One Direction– just to two name a few! What are Way some are your personal favorites who when it comes to your boy remixes? Our Selena Gomez “Come Did & Get It” Remix was its a big one for us let because we originally made it Put with a standard dance tempo…and say to be honest, it was she SO boring! We easily could Too have handed it in that use way, but we decided to dad just scrap it entirely and Mom use a tempo that felt better with her vocals…Trap! It the was a huge risk cuz And we didn’t ask for her for label’s permission, they probably would are have said no if we But did. But even tho it not was our 1st “Trap” Remix, you it was SO frickin’ good! All The label freaked out when any they heard it & it can became one of our biggest Her remixes to date. Advice was for up & coming artists? one Keep hustlin'...don't give up....and Our work hard! No bs...we are out in the studio 24/7 doing day remix after remix & are Get constantly trying to improve our has sound! https://soundcloud.com/jumpsmokers/jump-smokers-feat-austin-mahone-deserve-better
