Testimonials

Bles-sed aka Rizalyn is a pioneer and my personal mentor when it comes to DJing. Her decades of DJ experience, dedication to the craft, and impact she's made on local and global scales are just few reasons why she's the best DJ around. Her contagious and positive vibe, willingness to teach, desire to share her passion, and take a chance on you is what sets DJ Bles-sed apart from the rest. I'm a music enthusiast and the idea of DJing has always lingered my adult life. Chances came but I never took the plunge. It wasn't until I met DJ Bles-sed when I finally took action. As soon as she discovered my slight interest in DJing she sprung into action before I could even think twice about it like I have in the past. At any opportunity, she showed me the ropes (vinyl and controller), offered advice, invited me to shows, and basically shared her a glimpse of her DJ life with me. Just meeting her and experiencing her aura was enough inspiration to finally get into DJing. So, in May 2021 I purchased my own controller. Within the first couple of private lessons with Ble-sed I went from not knowing what a beat is to beat-matching and already planning out my first mixtape which I later released just two months later. I'm now practicing my DJ skills daily and have been sharing my work within online platforms and regular mixtapes. My goal is to start blessing crowds and events this year. While DJ Bles-sed is unsurprisingly touring the world at the moment I know that if we were located in the same place, she'd allow me to perform alongside her! If you've met DJ Bles-sed then you already know how she's one of the best human beings ever. Mix that with her skill, passion, and dedication to music and she's literally one of the best DJs you'll ever meet.

I originally moved to PDC in hopes of learning how to DJ. Over two weeks I had 4 classes to learn the basics. DJ Bless-sed is such a great instructor. She broke down everything so simple it was super easy to get. She is super encouraging and had a ton of patience with me. I wanted to become a DJ because no one is playing the music I want to hear right now and Bless-sed gave me opportunities to play and share my music with the world. It’s been a little over 3 months and I am already living out my dreams as an international DJ! I was able to lock down on 2 residences and book a couple of gigs back in the states for the summer. I am forever grateful for her mentorship and look forward to continuing working with her in the future.
