This week, we're featuring the Legendary DJ Black Catt!
How did you get started in your career? 
I guess I've been a DJ all my life. I would be the one playing music on my dads stereo in the basement for the family to hear upstairs lol. But I guess I started to learn my craft around 1990. I hit the club scene in 1992.
What was a memorable yet life changing moment that you’ve cherished?
This pandemic. I thought my DJ career was going to be over, but it  opened doors for me that probably would have never come my way if not for this pandemic.
Your favourite project you’ve worked on till date? 
DJing wise it would have to be my GO HARD events, specifically my NOIR event. It's my annual B-Day party & I have a great time putting it on and having fun with my friends & family.
Promoter wise, it would have to be the Ms. OPULENCE Drag Pageant I created with my business partner KingAde.
What advice would you give to individuals trying to get where you are? 
Don't let the noise around you drown out your own voice. Stay as focused as you can to what your dreams are & realize that you have the power to make them come true.
With the world’s current state, how have you been able to move your career forward? 
For me it's really been about making new connections & not being afraid to try new things. Being confident in my abilities has also helped me. Being able to rely on self BUT knowing that no one can do this life alone. Ask for help when you need it.
