DJ YRS Jerzy was introduced to readers last month via a collaboration he did with another artist who is a regular on the site, Malik Ferraud. Readers can get the rundown on it here. The initial post went so well that he was interested in sharing his own individual story with The Illixer and it just so happens that there was an opening for this month’s segment of That’s My DJ. So venture beyond the break to get to know the New Jersey talent a little bit better.

The Illixer: Top three favorite deejays of all time?
DJ YRS Jerzy: Funk Master Flex, DJ Drama, and DJ Khaled. They each brought something new to the game that I think people will learn from in the future. I definitely learned a lot from these three DJ’s just by looking at how they conduct themselves.
TI: Favorite song or type of music to play?
DJ YRS Jerzy: My favorite songs are mostly by old school Hip-Hop artists but some new ones as well. I also listen to EDM music. I told a lot of people a while back that EDM would take off and now it’s dope to see and hear it everywhere.
TI: One trait that is a must have for every real DJ?
DJ YRS Jerzy: You have to be patient. There are always people that are going to try you to see if you will break in the industry. You have to be a hustler and go and get what you want to really make things happen. Especially in this business.
TI: If you could change one thing about the art of deejaying today it would be?
DJ YRS Jerzy: I wouldn’t change a thing. I feel like everything is already set and ready for us. We just have to come up with different ways to set ourselves apart from other people and make our brands familiar to the people.
**My Two Cents: I always enjoy learning more about other talents in different states. This was no exception. DJ YRS Jerzy seems to have a real genuine passion for the business and one can never go wrong with that mindset. Additionally, he made a lot of interesting points in his Q&A. I can certainly see him going far in this business. Hopefully, he keeps in contact with us so that The Illixer can be apart of his journey in the future. Much love to him and his team. -MinM
