“I got my start in the Hamptons,” recalls DJ Juss, 27. “I got a gig doing a private Mansion Party. At the time, I was interning at the estate and when the DJ for an event was running late I was asked to entertain the guests by playing music off my computer. When I started playing the music I got such a great response it sparked an interest in deejaying.”
