When it comes to west coast turn-up kings, Los Angles based DJ Serafin takes his place comfortably on the starting line up. We caught up with our homie to talk briefly on his Career, West Coast Bounce, Bangers, and his favorite city to play, check it out!
Tell us about the West Coast Bouncers, how did you and Jared Lee Gosselin link up? and what can we expect from you guys as we hit the back end of 2014?
Met Jared around 2008, my old manager linked us up for an artist. We synced in right away.
We formed The West Coast Bouncers early 2014, and wanted to do something different from a producer and DJ point of view. That includes live performances, and thats when we came up with our fist single West Coast Bounce feat. The legendary Fatman Scoop and Blake Lewis.
The track is out NOW, check it out!
You've been in the game for a minute now, how has your DJing style evolved over time?
You have to get with times, adapt and stay current. But at the same time stay true to the art of djing. I always push myself on learning new routines, cuts and especially technology.
Describe a DJ Serafin set in 3 words
Ingenious, Entertaining & Amusing.
You probably have a stack of them, but what are your Top 5 heat rock tracks in your library right now?
My top 5, in no specific order - these are my go-to peak hour tracks at the moment:
West Coast Bouncers - 'West Coast Bounce'
Calvin Harris - 'Summer' (Bombs Away Remix)
Serafin - 'Twerk Machine'
Ale Mora & Karmatek - 'FTFP'
Dr. Dre ft Snoop Dogg - 'Nuthin But A G-Thang' (been playing this every show, west coast or east coast, works every time. One of those feel good vibes)
You're frequently playing all over the country, which city turn's up the hardest and why?
I can't really pick one, there's so many. West Palm Beach, Virginia Beach, North Carolina, Sacramento and even Tulsa Oklahoma just to name a few.
I love it when people go out and let loose, have fun and not worry about who's in the club. its a PARTY!
It all depends on what party you DJ for. Can't compete with the 18 and ups.. now those parties are turnt up!
