We had the good fortune of connecting with Kid Fish and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Kid, what’s something about your industry that outsiders are probably unaware of?
Most people think DJs are all the same and don’t know that there are actually many different types who are skilled at different things. Some primarily play night clubs, some do weddings & bar mitzvahs, others play house parties. While I’ve played all types, I specialize in high-end events such as film premieres, private parties, and stylish corporate events. This market often demands an expert level of service to meet the needs of the client and create a magical experience.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
Like a lot of artists, I can sometimes feel personally introverted, I work through that by showing up daily and I find once the music starts everything aligns. The energy isn’t something that can easily be described, it’s more of a feeling. I feel most alive when connecting through music. It opens me up to intuitively know a room and play for the collective.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Some of my favorites… Breakfast at Nate n ‘Al’s — black coffee, lox and egg whites (no onions) extra well done. Digging for treasures at Record Surplus in the dollar and collectables section. Check out the latest fashions in and around Melrose Place. Take a Hip hop yoga flow class with Tom Morley. Spicy Tuna #2 roll at Yu n Mi sushi. Oatmeal chocolate chip cookie from Erewhon Market. An incredible guided tour at the Fredrick R Weissman Art Foundation. Early evening walk at the Venice Canals. Pilates reformer class at Natural Pilates. Gluten Free Vegan Pizza from Pizzana.  Live Music Concert at The Greek Theater. Arcade and pinball games at Eighty-Two Classic Arcade. An all 80’s dance party at Break Room 86

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I’m able to do what I do because of all the artists and musicians that have poured their heart and energy into their music, which inspire me daily. I find a lot of music from a DJ record pool called Direct Music Service (https://www.directmusicservice.com/) which is an invaluable resource.

An extra special shoutout to my good friend Doctor Zero who’s been a supportive champion and the best tech guru ever!

And a colorful tie-dyed thank you to Grateful Larry
