About the Instructor
DJ Mista Soull is one of the most sought after deejays in the Midwest. He first honed his skills as a turntablist and then mastered the art of mixing. Soull made a name for himself by rescuing a closing club and turning it into the hottest nightclub in Omaha, The Parthenon. He worked with other clubs in the area too and gained a reputation as one of the city’s hottest deejays. Soull then ventured into radio and for five years consistently ranked number one for his time slot. Since leaving radio, he has developed a management and promotions company, and formed the national deejay coalition, The Crowd Rocka DJs. He continues to create mixtapes, promote events, host parties, manage artists, and teach youth.
