Mixtape: DJ Kool Flash – 1st Ladies Mixtape, Vol.1 – Hosted by : Statik Selektah
DJ Kool Flash has music is in her blood. She is the daughter of a Professional DJ/Recording Artist and her mother was a National Dancer in a Communist Country. She was born in Brooklyn, NY and is an 8 Year Old Professional DJ and B-girl. She’s been DJing for a year and a half and has superior skills considering the short period of time she’s been playing. She now lives right outside Washington, DC in Silver Spring, MD. Kool Flash named herself by combining the names of two Hip-Hop Legends, DJ Kool Herc and DJ Grandmaster Flash. This can be accredited to DJ Hero having Grandmaster Flash do the tutorial and by her watching youtube videos of DJ Kool Herc. She is not just a DJ either, she is a turntablist who cuts, scratches, doubles snares and beat juggles vinyl on her Technic 1200’s. She receives private DJ instruction at The Beat Refinery, which is the DMV’s local version of NYC’s Scratch Academy. Her teachers are DJ Throwdown(Ross) who just became DC’s DMC Champion for 2015 and DJ Trayze, this year’s Red Bull USA Thre3style DJ Champion. She is quite accomplished and connected in the music industry for her sophomore year as a DJ and performer. She got noticed in the social media world earlier this year when the J Dilla Foundation shared a video of her beat juggling on their Facebook page. Later on that day the good folks at Akai Professional shared the post on their Facebook page and the response was incredible. In a matter of days the post would get over 160,000 views. This has also been her breakout performance year. She has performed with Motown Legends ” Martha and the Vandella’s ” a few times and has been named an honorary Vandella. Kool Flash has been on stage with Hip-Hop Legends ” The Brand Nubians ” and opened up for Smif-N-Wessun, Heltah Skeltah, Jayden and Willow Smith, Joey Badass/Statik Selektah and Grammy Award Winner Erykah Badu. She is the youngest DJ of The J Dilla Foundation.
