Interview – DJ Morphiziz
Tell all the readers about yourself.
I'm originally from Chicago, lived in LA, Anchorage AL, and Guatemala City. And beside's the DJ thing, I also work with an Urban Outreach Ministry in Palm Beach FL called Souljournministries.org
How did you start DJaying?
That's was by accident, when I was young it was B-boying and Graff that got my attention at first and I went over a friend of a friends house and he had a DJ set up, I got on just to mess around and instantly fell in love with the tables.
How did you come up with Morphiziz?
Well Morphiziz is short for Metamorphosis, that's the process I went through when God saved me. Like a Caterpillar changes to a Butterfly God took something ugly due to my sin and by His grace changed me into something beautiful spiritually. I'm the same creature physically, but spiritually completly different.
How did you hook up with Beatmart for mixing the "Best of the Submissions" mixtapes?
I started touring with KJ52 bout 2 years ago and hit him off with my stuff, KJ walked it into to Todd Collins and God put grace on it and we went to work on BOTS vol 1
What is your goal with the latest release of the Best of the Submissions (volume 2)?
The goal is simple, to use these mixtapes to share Gods love for mankind, and the beauty bout
