OCCUPATION: DJ PRODUCERS

Breaking into the music industry is never easy but Bronx-born DJ/Producers Angel and Dren rose to the occasion and, as a result, have become forces in the NYC DJ scene. “It just thickened our skin and made it more important for us to believe in what we were doing.”

Breaking into the music industry is never easy but Bronx-born DJ/Producers Angel and Dren rose to the occasion and, as a result, have become forces in the NYC DJ scene. “It just thickened our skin and made it more important for us to believe in what we were doing.”

Now after 4 years behind the turntables, they’re harnessing those experiences to lend perspective to their recent marathon training. “Running, especially long distances, is about confidence and getting past the doubts,” says Angel. “For the first few miles, it’s almost this inner battle where you say to yourself, ‘I can do this. I’m strong enough to keep going.’” Finishing New York won’t be easy, but Dren figures, neither is staying motivated to set goals and grow within music. “It’s gonna take a lot of fight — but we’ve got it.” 

 

From DJing around the world to producing their own original music – Angel and Dren have no intention of allowing their schedules be a barrier on their path to success. These women have a simple approach to training: work hard and push and then work harder and don’t worry about anyone else. With this mentality, the results soon became clear for Angel and Dren. “Something about marathon training makes me feel proud and content. It’s a commitment, but it’s really worthwhile.”
