Rising Stars: Meet Phillip SVEC

Today we’d like to introduce you to Phillip SVEC. 

Phillip, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
I started mixing/DJing in 2020 during COVID because my girlfriend loved to dance and with clubs closed she couldn’t. So, I went out and bought a DDJ-400 and taught myself how to mix like that best DJs she loved. Being able to see her smile after month of being on lockdown lifted not only my heart but hers. COVID was tough for all of us. And a lot of us could not get our decompressors incorporated into our lives. 

After months and months of playing in front of family and friends, I decided to take things more serious. Almost two years after I start I booked my first gig at San Diego’s newest nightclub, NOVA SD. After that show, I have been booked every weekend somewhere new. 

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not, what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
The road has not been smooth whatsoever. With COVID restrictions, all my networking capabilities have been limited to social media until this summer. Also, being from Chicago and moving out here, to make new friends and connections were nearly impossible. 

As you know, we’re big fans of you and your work. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about what you do?
I am currently a DJ/Producer in the music industry. My main focus in this career path is to bring people together on the dance floor and spread love. I love DJing and seeing the smiles. After a LONG week at work, it is what people need. A little house music goes a long way. 

I have been told my ear for music is what makes me so special. Knowing when to play it, when to mix it, when to drop it, makes the people happy, excited, and they never know what’s coming. 

We’re always looking for the lessons that can be learned in any situation, including tragic ones like the Covid-19 crisis. Are there any lessons you’ve learned that you can share?
COVID-19… ROUGH TIMES. What I have learned is, people do not want to work dead-end jobs. People want to chase careers. I say do it if you can. I work full time and go to college full time. DJing/Producing is a hobby I love that I believe I can take to the next level. Always have a plan and backup plans. But never forget what you love.
