During Fusco’s junior year of high school, he attended Electric Zoo in New York City, ultimately changing his entire outlook on music and his future career plans. Fully immersing himself in the music industry, he started taking classes in creative video and audio production. He started to teach himself how to edit and produce mixes and began working under mentor, DJ Mike Nappi, at MusicFlex Entertainment.
While at MusicFlex, Fusco learned the basics to the music and entertainment industry, from producing and making club mixes and learning various type of computer software. From there, Nappi and his team started to teach Fusco everything needed to be a successful DJ, both behind-the-scenes and for live events. From learning how to use audio equipment, lights, video screens and skills to MC, Fusco was almost ready to start on his own.
Going into his senior year of high school, Fusco invested in his first Numark mixing board, speakers and lights. From there, he learned the art of performing as a DJ, what songs to play, and how to mix and entertain an audience. Practicing day and night until he mastered beat matching and mixing a live set, he became the #1 DJ for his peer’s house parties. His first gig was to 150 people at a private birthday party, finally reaching the start of his professional career.
