DJ Tina T. On Master Of The Mix – “Hip Hop Challenge”

Posted by djtinat in Personal

Today on Master Of The Mix, our challenge is to tell the story of Hip Hop. This is definitely the most comfortable and confident I have felt so far on the show. I started out as a Hip Hop DJ and love playing old school sets! The requirements of the Hip Hop Challenge are to play a 3min set that includes at least: - 1 song from the 70's - 1 song from the 80's - 1 song from the 90's It...

Should Female DJ’s Be Separated In Competitions?

Posted by djtinat in Personal

I read a tweet this morning from @ifelicious  about a new female DJ competition that inspired this blog post: "The ‘She Can DJ’ Talent Search Is Coming To America http://shar.es/lhd9t " First off, the name of this new show is annoying: "She Can DJ", implies that women can not DJ. Off to a bad start in my eyes. I also find it ironic that all 4 judges of this competition are men. I DO appreciate...

Bathtub Scene shows double standard for Female DJs

Posted by djtinat in Personal

Today I noticed a tweet from @DJGinaTurner that sparked my interest and inspired this blog post: "Can we find something to talk about other than a girl dj in a bathtub and what "real house music is"? Lets talk about how good pizza tastes!" I immediately pictured a woman DJing naked in a bathtub and rolled my eyes. After doing a quick google search, I came across "sexism within electronic music" and even "Bathgate!" In the center of all...

Master Of The Mix w/ DJ Tina T. Behind The Scenes (Episode 2)

Posted by djtinat in Personal

The "Auditions" are over and I'm thankful the judges trusted I am capable of much more than I did in the last episode. So now the pressure is on to prove it... After my first set, I guess a lot of the producers were very "concerned" about me and how nervous I seemed during the audition. I was pulled aside a few times on set without any cameras around and talked to about if I was feeling ok. They...

Master Of The Mix w/ DJ Tina T. – Behind The Scenes (Episode 1)

Posted by djtinat in Personal

Reality TV, something I never thought I would do! Honestly, I still can't answer the question "Was it a good or bad experience?" It was definitely the most intense, challenging, difficult, exhausting, exhilarating and traumatizing experience of my DJ career so far. Was it good or bad? I won't be able to tell you until the season has wrapped, but for now, lets talk about episode 1... Two days before flying to Miami to film the show, I...

Camp Spin Off 2012 Recap!

Posted by admin in Personal

Now that the third year of Camp Spin Off is wrapped up, I want to take a second to reflect on what an amazing and inspirational week we had. Music culture is changing so quickly each year that you never know what experiences you will leave with… Most importantly, Camp Spin Off would not be possible without the support from our sponsors who funded scholarships to youth organizations across the country and allow us to keep making...
