About Deejay Renay
Just realized that I’ve been doing this for the last 11 years! Whoa!
What’s funny is that I never had any dreams or inclination of becoming a DJ whatsoever. Too scared of electricity and blown speakers.
So here’s the condensed version. For a more detailed version, visit the “DJ Renay’s Soulful House Sessions Fan Page”. http://facebook.com/djrenayshs – Look under “MY STORY” in the Photos section. The story is told underneath each picture.
I am a househead who accidentally became a DJ because of my frustration of not finding the house music I wanted on cds. I started my journey late in the game (age 42) and spent 5 years learning to mix and playing music in my livingroom for my own enjoyment. My family thought I was going through “midlife crisis” and were waiting for me to get over it.
I finally got the courage to play in public at an “Open Turntable” and, after appearing a few times, I was offered an opportunity to play during the breaks of the regular band and eventually advanced to playing 4 and 5 hour sets.
I started out with classic house but I developed a passion for soulful and gospel house music after hearing selections from SuSu Bobien, Barbara Tucker and Kenny Bobien.
Soulful and gospel house music soothes, inspires, and comforts me. Playing and listening to house music has helped me get through the best and worst of times
Still can’t believe I’ve been doing this for close to 11 years and still learning, feeling and enjoying the music!
My mixes are played on various intenet radio shows, podcast and available on Itunes.
