One of the things I always liked about LA is how outgoing and easy to talk people are. I made a good friend who kept pushing me working on my ideas in music and, moreover, got me interested in DJ-ing as well. He had been DJ-ing for a while, and offered to teach me some basics.
I had a blast messing around with my favorite tunes and even some of my own songs. DJ-ing is something I definitely want to pursue more! However, being able to DJ requires a lot of technical equipment which is cumbersome and expensive, whereas making music Software based is rather affordable.
