TJR discussed his approach to DJing in a recent interview with SFX-owned event production company Disco Donnie.

“I don’t play with a planned set,” the Connecticut native said. “I do have some areas in my sets [that are routines] so I kinda know ahead of time in those little areas. But it’s about simplifying.”

TJR also talked about which equipment he uses and how he uses it.

“I like to try and use as much of the technology as possible, and a lot of that just comes from learning on vinyl,” he said. “That’s why I don’t use a computer. I just try and use what’s available on the CDJ [and] what’s available on the mixer.”
