Growing up in Brooklyn, New York, DJ F.M.I. (Finally Made It) hit the nightclub scene at the age of 16, where he started spinning local private events, birthday parties, house parties, backyard raves, and Sweet Sixteens. In a short period, he went from partying at the clubs to headlining them.
While his name and talents became more recognized throughout New York, his reputation rapidly grew. He consistently packed out venues such as Highline ballroom also Webster hall. He filled the dance floor using his natural ability to read the crowd, transition music smoothly, and his vast knowledge of an eclectic range of music.
At 22, F.M.I. became a professional D.J. and producer, creating new remixes and edits to songs. You can now find him in venues throughout the East Coast, incorporating music from every genre into his set.
Every Thursday, F.M.I. brings his talent as a D.J. and an intellectual to the VPR Radio forum, engaging in live discussions and groundbreaking interviews with guests and Qianathegoddess on the live talk show and audio podcast.
