DJ Nurotic: Some People Want To Be Rich, Some People Want To Be Famous – I Just Want To Live A Comfortable Life

At this year’s Miami Music Week, we were lucky enough to get the chance to sit down for a talk with incredible DJ Nurotic.

As a recent nominee for best mix show at the EDMAs and an outstanding all-around artist, DJ Nurotic is an artist to watch today. Combining a wide range of genres such as hip-hop, Latin, and House, Neurotic has crafted an iconic and inimitable sound that has garnered him some attention worldwide.

But, of all the genres he’s worked in, there’s one that still doesn’t get much attention from a mainstream audience, and here at Nexus, we were eager to learn more about it.

As any Chicago music lover will know, Juke music, also known as footwork, is an iconic genre closely associated with the city but hasn’t gotten a hold in the more expansive EDM space. All the same, DJ Nurotic is a significant proponent of Juke music and is working hard to make the genre a household name.

He says it’s all about easing people into it:

“I’ll start with some Jersey house, and BOOM, here goes the Juke! And people don’t even care at this point. So I feel like right now it is the time for Juke music to, you know, expand and to grow outside of Chicago?”

One certain thing is that DJ Nurotic’s passion for Juke music is still going strong, and here at Nexus Radio, we’re excited to see just how far he can push the genre.

Everyone has their definition of success, and artists are just the same. But, for DJ Nurotic, success, more than anything, is about comfort.

“Some people, they wanna be rich. Some people, they want to be famous. Me? I wanna do what I love and have a comfortable life. Yeah, it’s fun doing fancy things, but I don’t need fancy things… Success to me is just being comfortable, which means you do what you love!”

His answers weren’t so surprising when asked about potential upcoming projects. Right now, by the sounds of things, he’s mainly focused on producing more Juke music, but he also has a few more mainstream tracks coming down the line, including a piano house follow-up to “(Feel The) Pressure.”
