Rolling out magazine continues to profile people of color doing great things in the technology world, IT world, and founders of tech . So next up, James Jones, founder of a Minneapolis-based tech app, called Spark DJ.
Spark DJ is a brand new popular application that allows users to DJ like a pro, similar to many of DJ apps we’ve reported on in the past year or so.
James Jones, also known as DJ 3J, attended Notre Dame University for engineering.
“I started deejaying to pay for school. As the love of music grew, I started getting gigs to open for [artists like] Big Sean, Girl Talk, and Bone Thugs-N-Harmony,” Jones said
“I was getting more DJ gigs than I could handle,” he said. “The problem was they wanted to pay but I [could] only be at one gig at a time.”
He wanted to solve the problem of not being able to be at all of the gigs he was being requested for so he came up with a DJ app that’ll let the average person be capable of blending tempo and key like a live DJ would be able to do, add song request via your phone, and much more.
