English Version

My name is Barlond Acosta, also known as Dj Swe3t Tooth. Im from New Jersey born and raised all my life. I started Djing back in 2012 by the end of summer. I started Djing because i found it fun and looked cool. I got inspired by a Dj named Afrojack, who is known almost everywhere. He had a song that was being played on the radio called “Can’t Stop Me”. I really liked the song so i decided to do research on the Dj and from there on out i started to get his music and dj. I started with just a basic mixer from Mackie and a iphone. As i learned on how to use the EQS, my cousin gave me his old system which was called a Marathon DCM 3000. I could play with a CD, USB, and SD card. I had it for about a couple of months until i got more music and was used to it. On 2014, i got my official Pioneer Controller, The DDJ SR. It was a controller with tons of buttons and different functions. It took me about a week to understand it and how to use it. Till this day, i use it, make new ideas with it and its easy to carry around. Ive been doing for almost about a total of 5 years. Listening to new music, I’ve been influenced by the sounds of the Netherlands. Some Dj’s that fit my style are Afrojack, Laidback luke, DVBBS, Deorro, Gta, Mike Cervello,Moksi who fit the House genre in general. I also play trap and hard style music and the Dj’s who influenced me on that side are Yellow Claw, Dj Snake, Cesqeaux, Lny Tnz, Zomboy, 4b, Kayzo , Skellism. These artists have influenced me on the way i play music, from 128 bpm to 150 bpm. I don’t really have a certain style that i play but i play with music that gets people excited. Just a couple of months i just got my first pair of Technics Turntables and learning how to scratch. As time passes by I’m still learning and practicing new ideas and tricks. Iive played small shows out in Colombia which were in Bogotá, Chia, Medellin, CALI. These were the places i played for and got the craziest and best reactions to the music i play. Lets see where else around Colombia i can play.
