Taking a break from her Morning Show turntable duties, our very own DJ Carisma took some time to chop it up with Revolt TV’s ‘No Sleeping In The Trophy Room’. Speaking with host Los Antonio, Carisma runs us through her journey becoming the most prolific female deejays out of Southern California.
Carisma has been trailblazing since her decision to get into spinning and the music industry, which was a move she did not hesitate to make, as she grew up in Santa Ana, seeing the negative impact local gangs had on her community. While Carisma worked to get herself through school, she eventually ended up in Minnesota as a Radio Broadcasting major, and ultimately left after one year to get her foot in the door with Power 106. Carisma details how her big break came when she assisted in putting The New Boyz on with their hit single “You’re A Jerk” and everything after that was history.
With a plethora of accolades and notoriety from her peers in the industry and the city that inspired her, Carisma goes on to discuss where she wants to take her career next with breaking artists, curating more music on her own, following in the steps of DJ Khaled, and she also talks her biggest inspirations which include Spinderella, Jazzy Jeff, Nicki Minaj, and much more.
