All right,
we can just jump into it. -Welcome to the show.
-…man. I feel like we’ve all… we’ve all been thrust
into this new world of living in a different way,
and then you’re the first person who I felt like truly captured, like, bringing joy into the world
of social distancing. Did you think your stream was
gonna blow up as much as it did? ‘Cause I think you started
with, what, 200 people? And then it jumped
to, like, 100,000 over time. I started with 200.
And no, I didn’t think it was going to become
what it did. And, um, it was literally me
sitting at home and just kind of
feeling isolated and missing my friends. -Right. -And, you know,
I tour the world deejaying, so I’m used to being around
a lot of people. And I just felt like
I needed to do something. I was going stir-crazy in here. So I started my IG live. And I had never really used
IG live. I started it just to invite
some of my friends and just to play music
from my laptop into the phone and share old-school stories
about some of these records that I produced back when I was,
like, 18 and 19 years old. -Right, right. -And then
it just kind of took off, like, with the stories. And then one of my buddies is
another DJ named DJ Clark Kent. He was like, “You should
actually start deejaying in-in your, uh, IG live.” And it turned into,
like, this massive party. What… Actually,
I thought it was massive. It went from 200
to 10,000 people, and I was just excited
about that. -(laughs)
-And by the time Fri… By the time Friday arrived,
it was, like, 25,000 people, and J.Lo was in there, -and then Drake popped in.
-Right. Oprah popped in, and, uh, then Michelle Obama
popped in. And that was, like,
I froze up for a bit. And even though
I deejayed for Michelle and, uh,
and the former president, it was still
kind of surreal that… I’m used… I’m used to being
in their world, and now they’re in my world. Like, they came over
to see what I was up to. And just having
all of these artists in there -was just, like, amazing…
-Right. …that they were coming
to-to D-Nice -to see what I was up to.
-Right. And the.. And, also, the music. The music that I chose to play was much different than
what I would play at a party. So, at a party,
I’m looking at people and trying to cater to them. -Uh-huh.
-But when you’re in that… in that world, there’s,
you know, there’s no audience. So I literally just played
from the heart. I played what I felt. Do you think the sets
you’ve created now are gonna become the sets
that you start playing once social distancing is over? Do you think…
do you think this period has helped D-Nice create,
like, a new idea, or do you think this set
is specifically designed for what you’re doing
on Instagram? No, I think that this is
going to become the norm of… Because other DJs have
called me, you know, to say– like, I mean, other big DJs–
like, “Dude, you reminded me of what it felt like to actually
just play music that you love.” -Oh, wow. -So I think
people are gonna start incorporating that
into their sets. I think people
were in that chat room– in that IG live, rather– to hear me play
and to-to experience it. And-and the fact
that they were engaged for… -I played nine hours in there.
-Yeah. -Yeah, it was a marathon.
-It was a nine-hour set of, like,
a straight marathon set where it was just fun,
and it didn’t even feel like it. It was just mind-blowing.
It was mind-blowing. -So, I feel like…
-You-you… Yeah. I mean, to have…
to have a party where you have Michelle Obama
pop in, I don’t think… I don’t think…
I think there’s, like, a handful of people on the planet
who can say that phrase. “I was throwing a party, and then Michelle Obama
pops in.” And now she hasn’t
just popped in. The two of you
are also teaming up. You’re gonna be…
you’re gonna be deejaying another big set
that’s coming up, but this time you’re teaming up with Michelle Obama’s,
um, organization. What is…
what is that gonna be? The whole concept of it…
It’s Michelle’s organization, and she’s trying to, you know,
increase voter registration. -Right, right.
-So they came up with an idea to throw a couch party
where we can, like, just kind of galvanize people
to register to vote. So it’s a party with purpose,
you know, where I’ll play great music. We’ll make sure, you know,
to remind people to log on to, you know,
the site to register to vote, -which is important, you know?
-Mm-hmm. We have to. I mean,
it’s a big election year, so just trying
to drive that traffic up. Hey, man, if there’s anyone
who can drive the traffic, it’s the hottest DJ in the world
right now. It’s so amazing,
because when you just type “DJ” into Google right now, it autocorrects it to D-Nice. -So, clearly, you’ve done
a major thing. -Oh, wow. Congratulations on creating
something completely new, and I hope
this is just the beginning. And thank you, man. Thank you
for making us all dance. Thank you for bringing a little
joy into everybody’s lives. I’ll see you
at the party tomorrow. All right, absolutely.
Have on your dancing shoes, man. -I’ll be there. Let’s do it.
-All right.

    Do you want to know why the daily show is completely corporate?
    Because they are not talking about the thousands and thousands of people about to die…
    Or they are not talking about the biggest single act of terrorism of all time, a world corporate government making a planet terrified of each other……
    At this point in human existence, we are either talking about a virus that ends mankind, as this virus has repeatedly been called a dress rehearsal. or we are talking about the corporate capture, enslavement, and ultimate terrorisation of the globe.
    Either way, citizens who just want to live, are not winning.

    Trevor my dear brother , dumelang! These are tough times and us doctors in the frontlines in NYC need media help. Someone needs to tell the country what is happening here on the ground. We need all the help possible else this will continue for a very long time. This is a cry for help!! The politicians have not been to a single hospital and the cdc docs have not had to go into patient rooms or see their colleagues and bosses fall sick in icu. We need someone in media to help us fix this problem! I wish you could even Skype just 1 doctor in nyc per week to ask how things on the ground are. True we need comedy, and it helps the soul, but you can help us get this problem fixed too. Please , I have tweeted you a million times and am writing this message from quarantine, going back to work Monday to start taking care of patients on the newly created 300 extra beds for Covid. We need you New Yorkers in the media to help tell the story!!! Thanks. Dr Emmanuel

    Beard growing contest by TV celebs for fun and to raise money….

    Notice those celebs that are โ€˜shelteringโ€™ seem to be experimenting with facial hair.

    I propose a contest to see who has done the best job.

    The end of the contest would be when some predetermined milestone in fight against coronavirus is achieved like, for instance, when WHO announces an approved vaccine.

    The winner would be the only TV celeb that can keep his creation, at least for a little while, while everyone else has to shave while on the air.

    Voting by phone would be continuous during contest with current tabulation regularly announced on their respective shows.

    More importantly…..

    each vote would require some sort of donation to a charity to be counted.

    This could be a fun one, and I could see TV ads popping up from time to time with current state of celebs faces, asking for votes and donations.

    Beard growing contests could become popular with local news anchors, talk show hosts, politicians, governors, YouTube vloggers, and others competing with their peers and raising money.


    If this proposal sounds like it might be a fun one, please send copy or refer this comment to someone you know that might be in a position to โ€˜kick it upstairsโ€™ towards others closer to the top of the decision matrix for consideration.

    Thank you, and stay healthy…..

You know, I used to watch those sitcoms with the "audience laugh" just to let you know when it was supposed to be funny ๐Ÿ™‚ But youยดre funny because you ยดre smart and thats a double surprise to me. Because its hard to understand how can smart people have so dumb president. Greetings from a quarantine in the Czech republic.

    So , I have a question? Say that certain states have 0 cases of the Corona Virus, and other states have large populations with the virus. Would it be possible for the states without any Corona Virus cases to close their borders to other states, or is that just things that different countries are allowed to do?

    Now white people are going to steal the idea and act like they came up with the idea and not give D-Nice any props and call it Social DJing. Then they'll make millions off of it.
