Soundtrack : DJ Venmo


DJ Venmo (Jakob Harris) has been digging his grubby hands into the pockets of Detroit’s nightlife for the last five years in an effort to pay his rent as well as fulfill his life’s purpose of owning every single private pressing ever made.


“It’s enthralling to live in a city where you can really challenge other people’s ears as well as your own. Lots of bars have a sound system and some gear, so if you are really itching to wreak havoc on people it’s not hard. It’s fun finding the balance between what people are trying to hear on their night out versus whatever disjointed noise I’ve been splurging on at the time. I’ve also learned to not take it so seriously. It’s all just dance parties, right? People complain that there’s too many DJs but there’s a reason for it. Think outside the club!“


On being a Detroit DJ
“The artistic culture sprawling through so many blocks and veins really binds the city together. Literally every gathering requires music or else it feels weird.”
