DJ Don Mecca has always been inspired by music. From the days of sitting on the porch listening to Rakim, Beastie Boys, LL Cool J and Run DMC. Beatboxing and Freestyling with childhood friends until the streetlights came on, really kick-started his love affair with music. As Don Mecca matured so did his relationship with music and he began studying the mechanics of how it all came together to make it so euphoric to him. Along the way he discovered his desire to not just hear the music, but to really feel the beats and manipulate them. Taking notes from Funkmaster Flex, Mr. Mixx (of 2 Live Crew), Jam Master J and DJ Jazzy Jeff, he grew the production and DJing part of his music relationship. Throughout the years many more successful DJs have continued to influence his style and skills. A fellow Producer/DJ once told Don Mecca, “to differentiate yourself from being just another DJ, you have to really become an artist”. Taking those words to heart, he not only DJs, he produces in his free time, and is pursuing his Bachelor’s Degree in Music Engineering and Music Technology. In 2010, he founded Starbangaz Entertainment, a collective of Producers, DJs and Artists.
