DJ Maestro is a phenomenon, as many people can attest. He is known for his Blue Note Trip compilations, each of which went platinum. Thanks to his friends who took their drive-in show to parties at hockey clubs and schools, Maestro became captivated by turntables, mixers, headphones and vinyl when he was a teenager. It left him with an insatiable hunger for discs. The seventh CD in the Blue Note Trip series was released last year.
