s nickname stemmed from an aversion to school work, the young up-and-coming DJ’s approach to his music is anything but lazy. Starting his DJ career at the age of 13 in a family full of selectors, he was particularly mentored by his cousin DJ Quest, who taught him everything from holding a needle to nightlife etiquette.
Today, he is a resident of Sazon Libre
and Rebel Pop Radio
on WiLD 9.49
, and is gaining attention for his signature edits and remixes. We chatted with Baysik about his Bay-centric name, favorite genres, and recent health complications. Catch him a variety of gigs this weekend starting tonight Thursday, July 21 at Social Study
, Friday, July 22 at Bamboo Hut, and Saturday, July 23 with Sake One at Luka's Taproom
in Oakland. There will also be a fundraiser for Baysik's health funds next Thursday, July 28 at Madrone Art Bar
