SAN DIEGO, CA – If you were to describe DJ Yolo in one word, it might be “persistent.” After a chronic battle with depression and run-ins with the law, the artist found himself behind bars yet again. Dedicated to his fans, his priority upon his release was letting his fans know of his remorse and his renewed sense of dedication to his music and the people who have supported him. “This time I really messed up bad,” he said, “but even though I’m going through some serious legal and psychological problems, I want fans to know I am still 100% dedicated to the music – no matter what happens to me.” While in jail, it was uncovered that the artist suffers with psychological problems – hearing voices, and music, for starters – and while he has much to sort out in his personal life, it doesn’t take away from the fact that he is first and foremost a relentless and talented artist.
DJ YOLO’s music is as he puts it “lit”. He elaborates, “I make music for people to turn up to.” His most recent project, a song entitled “VIDEOS” is a clever and laid back song about a modern dilemma: When you’re out with friends and people are recording videos you might not want others to see. With Instagram, SnapChat, Facebook Live and all the other platforms that chronicle events, one might rather stay private.
Fans can visit DJ YOLO’s Soundcloud page to sample “VIDEOS”. The song was also most recently featured in a YouTube video by a talented dancer Matt Martin (find him on Instagram at @Matt_Swag1).
Though the artist has mountains to climb and obstacles to overcome, he remains committed to his true love, and business, his music. “I have a newer focus – I was already trying to be careful because of past legal issues, but now, my entire life is going to be music and my online presence. I’m not going to let anything stop me from being successful in the industry.” DJ Yolo also says he is currently seeking out management, and a booking agent to further build his team.
