Ashley Zelinskie (Director of The Active Space): “Extremely Professional! I was super impressed with the music selection as well as the setup. He was considerate of both the space and the crowd. Art exhibitions can be tricky but he was totally accommodating and very easy to work with. I will be using him for all my future events!”
BushwickDaily.com: …Oh, and the dance party was amazing. About 150 people showed up and a bunch of them joined us for absolutely rad dance party in the 1990s style after 10pm. Apropos, the dance party was insanely good. DJ Jojo Soul was spinning and spinning hard. You are probably imagining amazing, so we now need you to close your eyes and multiply this feeling by 1000. Yes, now you’re close to how amazing he was. You will definitely hear more of this guy on Bushwick Daily soon.
950 Hart Gallery: …The dance party was a great throwback to 90’s music climaxing with jojoSoul mixing and cutting “Groove is in the Heart” with “What Is Love”. He kept everyone so pumped that when we began cleaning up the next day, we realized that everyone’s jumping and dancing had shaken dirt out of the ceiling.
Highly recommended that you check out the Bushwick Gallery artists online, and jojoSoul if you ever get the chance to dance near his speakers in person.
Adam Deville of SKEWVILLE: Yo Yo .Brooklyn Flavor was indeed in the house at factory fresh thanks to DJ JoJo. His fresh Beats kept those Venezuelan chics bumping and grinding through out the night!
