DJ Johnny Qwest, aka J Qwest, aka Mr. Mash UP, is much more than just a DJ; he is a producer, entrepreneur and music mogul in the making. At a young age, Qwest recognized his passion for expression through sound as his father exposed him to records in the jazz, Motown, and classic rock realms. By age 13, he was following his love of music by teaching himself how to DJ.
It was from this moment, that he realized how music would ultimately become a very significant part of his life. Exploring every opportunity he could to express his love for music, Qwest enrolled at the Institute of Audio Research as a Audio Engineer major. Quickly, he knew that his contribution to music went deeper than simply recording and mixing, and so he embarked on a musical journey. Inevitably, Qwest began developing his DJ personality. With a renewed vigor, Qwest returned to his roots where he honed residencies at many of the hottest clubs in the city and worked on various independent production projects by day.
During this time, he mastered the art of synergy: blending beats across genres unparalleled to that of any other. His years of DJ experience have allowed him to work alongside some of the most influential acts in the industry. Today, J Qwest pushes forward from all of his music business angles.
He continues his career simultaneously acting as a DJ/Producer with his new independent release via LRT Entertainment “So Deep” on the way; developing new acts as well as; branching into T.V. He is also branching out further with the launch of his very own record label, ”Johnny Qwest Music”.
