About

Miss Dj Gemz was born in Oakland, California, raised in Upper Marlboro, Maryland, and went to

college in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. It was while attending school in Pittsburgh that she

became close friends with several djs in the city. Dj Thermos, Dj Ys, Dj Phinesse, and

Dj Supa C all motivated and inspired Miss Dj Gemz to practice, shadow them, and

learn the skills required to become a dj starting with a true appreciation for the art

of turntablism through the use of vinyl.

 

Looking up to many djs around the world such as Q-Bert, Jazzy Jeff, Roc Raida,

Dj Shortee, and K-Swift (R.I.P. to the Club Queen), Miss Dj Gemz practiced regularly

in order to master not only the art of mixing but also the art of scratching.

 

She understands that becoming a great dj is a process that takes time expanding your

music collection, knowing your music, and practicing the craft of mixing and scratching.

It is her goal that djing will take her to many cities around the world and allow her to

share her love of music with many more people.
