If anyone knows how to get the dance floor bumpin' it's DJ Blaqsquerade. If you've had the pleasure of attending one of his classes in DC, then you'll know what we mean. When it comes to playing banger after banger Greg does not mess around.

But this DC native's talents extend far beyond the DJ booth, so we sat down with DJ Blaqsquerade and got to know the man behind the music. 

 

 


Let's jump right in- what's the craziest thing you've ever done?

I decided to run a dance crew in college when my only experience was doing The Dougie and somehow was able to choreograph an entire showcase that went on for 3 more years.

 

What's something most people don't know about you?

I work at the Shakespeare Library with their Education Department, so if you're an English Teacher, let me know.

What's one thing you'd never be caught without?

My headphones. It's my job to listen to music.

 

What's your all-time favorite song?

No Limit by Usher ft. Young Thug. I dare you to try to be any smoother.

 

What's the main style of music you play?

I'm known for my hip-hop remixes.

 

If you weren't a DJ, what would you be doing?

Probably continuing with dance and choreo from my college days in LA (like everyone who wants to be famous does).

 

What's one thing you hope to do before you die?

I want to actually complete the graphic novel I worked on for a while in high school and college.

What's your personal mantra?

"We're just trying to live our best life."
