DJ Mustard Discusses Why He Works With EDM Artists

DJ Mustard
A day after releasing his Travis Scott-assisted single “Whole Lotta Lovin’,” DJ Mustard stopped by The Cruz Show on Power 106 to catch up and discuss the collab.
The Los Angeles producer also spoke on why he’s branching out from hip-hop. “Once you start doing the same thing over and over, they start to notice, and they don’t care about you no more,” Mustard said. “I talked to Timbaland for a long time and he was like, ‘You gotta just switch up. You gotta do what you wanna do.'”
However, Mustard admitted that not all of his fans support his work in EDM. “Why can’t I do EDM? Is it because I’m black or something?,” he said with a laugh.
Mustard also discussed his start as a DJ and how it’s helped him as a producer. “I never knew I was going to be a producer. I always just wanted to be a good DJ.” He continued: “All the great producers were DJs. Dr. Dre was a DJ. Lil Jon is a DJ. Khaled is a DJ.”
