Deejay Flacko is a member of The Young Urban Society (DJ Cell). He does his thing all over Wisconsin and came highly suggested as someone who deserved to receive a little spotlight through That’s My DJ. So find out what the site uncovered upon reaching out to the burgeoning talent.
Background Info: Deejay Flacko is only in his early twenties but he has had music and art in his heart since his childhood. His grandparents fueled his passion for the creative mediums through instruments and their own forays with music. He came into his own tools of the trade so to speak via two tape decks and a two channel battle mixer, and he was hooked from there. He would go on to spend his days upgrading his equipment and sharpening his craft. His first gigs included home based events such as house parties. Once he hit his teens though, club owners bent the rules a little bit to allow him to spin due to their belief in his skills. All of his hard work came to pay off. His resume currently spans 10 states with 200 plus cities and over 350 venues. Additionally, he is sponsored by clothing company, VNeck Mafia. So that’s pretty substantial for someone his age. And he plans to continue to do big things through music, dubbed his love and his stress reliever.
