Today I had the opportunity to sit with DJ Veev, a local DJ who has been hosting events at various lounges and dispensaries in the Coachella Valley. Read on to learn more!
CV WEEKLY: When did you begin DJing?
DJ Veev: I’ve been in music since I started doing sound at my church when I was 12. I got serious about DJing in 2009 or 2010 learning from other DJs in New England
CV WEEKLY: What is your relationship to cannabis?
DJ Veev: Cannabis seems to be a catalyst for me. One of the first things I discovered about it was that it has a way of bringing people together. I find commonalities in people I would never expect to… and it all starts with cannabis
CV WEEKLY: What is unique about your DJ sets?
DJ Veev: What’s unique about me and my sets is that I’m a music fan first. I don’t mind when people make requests because as a fan, I might like it. So I love to play across genres by catering to the mood, the vibe and the audience.
CV WEEKLY: How do you see yourself growing in the next year?
DJ Veev: In the future you can expect to see more of me with cannabis. I love hosting events, collaborating with other creatives, producing content to erase the stigma and being about my cannabis community. You’ll definitely find me creating more opportunities for the cannabis community to come together.
CV WEEKLY: What made you decide to start DJing in dispensaries?
DJ Veev: Cannabis chose me. Music and cannabis make me the happiest… it seemed to make a way for itself once I started choosing what made me happy.
