99 Jamz top DJ Personality, She-J Hercules will power up the Miami Carnival stage with a set at the Parade of Bands and Concert on Sunday, October 8, 2017 at Miami-Dade County Fair Grounds.
The South Florida Caribbean News Team caught up with She-J Hercules and learned more about this top DJ.
Q: Where are you from?
A: I was born here in Broward County, Florida. My mother is from Georgetown, Guyana, and father is from Laborie, St. Lucia.
Q: Favorite dish from your island?
A: Curry Beef and Roti, Doubles
Q: Who were your influences as a DJ coming up and why?
A: Beverly Bond was a big inspiration for me coming up as a DJ along with MC Lyte because they are both powerful, independent women who used their passion such as music and djing to create a pathway for women in this industry that is mostly male dominated. They give me such inspiration because one day, I know I will be able to make it to the top and be just as humble and blessed as they are touching other people’s life while doing what I love.
Q: As a DJ, what is in your personal playlist? Morning inspiration, afternoon drive and evening wind down?
A: I enjoy listening to a plethora of genres in the morning and afternoon such as reggae, soca, hip hop and top 40. As, long as the music is upbeat and hyped, I will be able to get through my day. In the evenings, I enjoy some nice RnB throwbacks or classic reggae songs to wind down from my day.
Q: Favorite Soca Artist
A: Machel Montano
Q: Is there a song or album that changed the game for you in becoming a DJ?
A: I would say that any Michael Jackson song or album has changed the game for me in becoming a DJ, because just like how Michael Jackson was so talented, successful, and passionate about his music, that is how I feel about djing. Most of all Michael Jackson was a legend because he did not try to be like other people, he was himself and I love that.
