15: Louie XIV Is "Trapped In The Booth"
Jul 10 15
Ever wondered what life is like as a working DJ? DJ Louie XIV has you covered.
Based out of New York City, Louie has taken his experiences in nightlife and turned them into material for his writing.
His series of short stories, aptly named "Trapped In The Booth", originally appeared on Huffington Post's lifestyle blog and takes you into the world of DJing from a perspective rarely seen.
The series is not about the glitz and glamour. It's about the unique, and often comical, situations a lot of us deal with on a weekly basis.
From a hilarious story about post-gig eats and the repercussions that come along with it to saying yes to strange gigs just to make sure the bills are paid.
I talk to Louie about how he created his own lane as a nightlife DJ, combining writing and DJing as a platform to grow his brand, and just the everyday struggle we go through trying to turn our passion into a career.
