Why this name?
Diioia is my last name, and alot of my family is into music, I pretty much just put it together one day!
Do you play live?
I am eventually (once funds are straight) going to start dj'ing. I think that is a great way for an up and coming producer like myself to build a name on the club scene! I have produced for artists who perform our songs. I like to goto the club where they perform and network, passing out mixtapes or flyers.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
I think it is great, if you see my twitter page, I am always working. Looking for new clients and people to work with. I was told once that your network is your net-worth, and I definitely believe that. Just like any industry, it's not what you know, It's who you know. The internet definitely helps build up your contacts.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
I would love to. I really need to build up placements and that would be a wonderful way to. I'm also looking for management if anyone is interested. But I have gotten alot of opportunities from my homey, B.West and the Real Records team!
My parents are a large influence in my music. My goal is to make a rap song that they like! (They hate rap) but I like to incorporate a more MUSICAL feel to the tracks to show its not just a 4bar loop.
I really like Philadelphia, most of my business is in the city, but this summer I'm planning on travelling to NYC, LA and Miami to promote business!
