We had the good fortune of reconnecting with the founder and C.E.O. of Track Masters DJ company in Miami. He is James S. and you can check out our recent conversation below.

Hi James, we’d love to hear more about Track Masters. How did you come up with starting your own business?
Well . . . It wasn’t something I thought I’d ever do. What I mean by that is that it was a process over many years. Things happened along the way which eventually turned into me starting the business. As a small kid, I remember going to McDonald’s to eat with my parents. At some locations, there would be a metal plaque stuck to the wall with a guy’s image on it. At the time, I didn’t give it too much thought although I knew it was about the guy who started McDonald’s (Ray Kroc). When I was in elementary school, I remember one day the teacher had a bunch of large sized cards with pictures on them of people who had done important things in different areas (such as entertainment, sports, civil rights, mathematics, science, business, etc . . .). These cards also had their names and a summary of their noteworthy achievements on them. The one that struck me the most was Walt Disney. Below his name was the word ‘entrepreneur’. At the time, I had never heard that word before and I didn’t know what it meant. The teacher overheard me trying to pronounce the word. She showed me how the word is pronounced and explained to me what the word meant. She said “An an entrepreneur is someone who works for themself”. At the time, I didn’t give it much thought. It just hit me like ‘Wow, that was the real man behind all the magic’. I thought to myself that if I were to work for myself, it would have to be for something that I was really passionate about.

Fast forward years later . . . Lots of people are in business for themselves: Sean “Puffy” Combs, Russell Simmons, Vince McMahon, Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, etc . . . Not only big names with huge successful businesses, but little guys too with small restaurants and stores. It got to a point where it just started to make sense for me to create a brand that would epitomize what my passion was: DJ and Party Entertainment. Brands such as Coca-Cola, Playboy, Walgreens, Nike, Papa John’s and many others initially started out very small. They eventually grew over time and became successful. I knew that I had a great brand and that I also had what it took to make it a success. I recognized that it probably wouldn’t be easy, but that was part of the challenge. It was going to take a lot of hard work and dedication. I had a dream and a vision that I wanted to turn into reality. I knew what I wanted to accomplish.

What should our readers know about your business?
Track Masters disc jockey company was founded by me (A.K.A. DJ Prophecy) in 2013. Growing up in Miami (the mecca of party and dance music), I was heavily influenced by my environment. My interest in the DJ/turntablist profession started at a very early age and as time went on, I learned more and more about the music which I’d eventually come to specialize in. I became enthralled by the ‘DJ culture’. I dreamed about becoming a great DJ one day and sharing this passion with the world. I was determined to make this dream into a reality. I began implementing necessary steps such as learning more about music and doing research as to exactly what equipment would be required. My interest and dream of becoming a DJ was taken to the next level in 1998 when at the age of sixteen, I acquired the professional equipment I needed (such as turntables, a mixer, an amp, and speakers). I began practicing on my new pro DJ equipment which I had set up in my small bedroom. Next, I began searching for all the music that I needed. This marked the beginning of a significant vinyl record collection. When I first started to get into DJing and collecting vinyl, I went from having 0 records to having 3 records. To date, I’ve amassed over 3000 records.

DJ Prophecy is the Visionary Behind the Brand
DJ Prophecy’s vast vinyl record collection serves as his arsenal for when he’s throwing down live in the mix. He has been a DJ since 1998. DJ Prophecy’s inspiration for becoming a DJ came from listening to local Miami area DJs on the radio and in clubs, as well as New York DJs (such as Tony Touch and Funkmaster Flex) on mixtapes. DJ Prophecy’s vast knowledge about music and different styles, formulate a certain unique flavor when it comes to his technique of DJing. He’s an authentic DJ who can mix everything from hip hop to electronic dance music. He enjoys making people dance and have fun in a party atmosphere. His love of DJing as well his experience from performing at countless parties and events keeps his passion going. DJ Prophecy’s specialty is old school urban and dance music, so he felt it was only fitting that he create a company (as an outlet) which specialized in the same. Living in Southeast Florida alongside the pulse of Miami, he’d been around the DJ and turntablist industry for decades. He believed that the time had come for him to establish a brand which specialized in, focused on, and represented the art form of DJing. DJ Prophecy formed ‘Track Masters’ to fulfill this purpose: an organization for ‘party people’, DJs/turntablists, casual clientele, as well as for fans and enthusiasts of the craft.
