3 Voices: Introduce yourself to the people who may not exactly know who and what DJ Honorz does.
DJ Honorz: To Keep It Simple, I’m DJ Honorz & I’m A 23 Year old D.J (Mixtape/Mixshow/Party/Show) & Entrepreneur From The Lowend Of Chicago Illinois.
3 Voices: When did you become an actual DJ? What inspired you to even DJ?
DJ Honorz: I Always was in love with music, Ever since I Was A Shorty, around 7 or 8 I knew I wanted to do something involving Music, whether it’d be rapping/producing/DJing/Or even engineering, I wanted to be involved with it someway. Everyone around me was trying to rap so I started self- teaching myself to make beats, to possibly be their in-house producer
When I decided to officially become a DJ was in 2007, I was still learning to DJ but wasn’t so much into it. I was switching back and forth from DJing to Producing seeing which one I wanted to do Mainly. One night, me and some friends snuck into a party DJ Sean Mac was DJing. My friends were partying and I was focusing on the DJ as far as Studying, and taking mental notes on what he was doing. The way Mac controlled the crowd and blended songs together was dope to me, and really inspired me to make this an official career choice.
3 Voices: Shouts out to DJ Sean Mac. How did you become affiliated with Stack or Starve? Tell us a little about your segment on Stack or Starve Radio.
DJ Honorz: Dough is a street dude, so he always has his ear to the street. In 2010 I had somewhat of a growing buzz and he heard that & Heard about me, but most importantly, he saw my work ethic. So when I came to him about possibly joining, me introducing myself and stating my credentials was already out of the way. We chopped it up and the rest is History.
As for my Segment: Every Tuesday night at 10PM (central time) On swurvradio.com, our Mixshow is aired to over 20 thousand listeners. My segment/time to mix is always at 10:30 to 11:20, and I’m basically showcasing my skills Mixing all the hottest music to me from all over the US, and Also showcasing some of the talented artists from the city that maybe some of the 20 thousand listeners aren’t intune with.
