PHILADELPHIA, PA, October 26, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/
-- In the history of all things political, musicians and celebrities have remained outspoken citizens who have voiced their views of modern society. Although these stars have had the ability to challenge the American government and influence millions, other performers, such as DJs, have become boxed into partisan ideology. A recent article from The Los Angeles Times suggests that in the midst of this year's presidential election, many popular DJs face challenges when embracing political ideas. Alexander Drummond, Charlotte, NC
resident, is one entrepreneur who has witnessed the effects the recent Democratic National Convention has made on his hometown's nightlife. Although Drummond recognizes that the line between artists and politicians is slowly blurring, he believes the music community should remain focused on the needs of the audience - something he has aimed to do with the ReQuestz Music App.
Although some DJs have used their popularity to spread the importance of voting and raise awareness about voicing opinions, many remain certain that the electronic dance music (EDM) culture is one not worth listening to. In fact, according to The Los Angeles Times, other musicians have deemed DJ culture as one that is simply "new noise." Others remain focused on the fact that the EDM scene is one heavily associated with subculture communities and rampant drug use. Still, DJs have received an increasing amount of respect among those in the political community. The article highlights one particular story of DJ Adam 12, who recently spun for an Obama fundraising event; the artist was so appreciated that he was invited to take a picture with President Barack Obama.
During the DNC in Charlotte, NC, Alexander Drummond realized that nightlife was heavily impacted by the heavy influx of visitors, many of which were involved with politics. Although these crowds were there to support the Democratic Party, many ventured out to local clubs and bars to enjoy events hosted by area DJs. Alexander Drummond of Charlotte, NC explains that the event merely highlighted a problem that is present in clubs across America--when places get crowded, many club-goers cannot appropriately express their music requests to the DJ. Drummond comments, "During my time in DJ booths, I have noticed that even when people would hand the DJs money and ask them to play songs, it was too loud, the DJs couldn't hear and the songs would be missed."
For this reason, Alexander Drummond of Charlotte, NC created the ReQuestz Music App. He explains that no matter what the political atmosphere or mood of an event or a performer, the ReQuestz Music App works to help streamline and improve the connection of DJs and their listeners. With the app, users can request songs directly to the DJ for a small fee. According to Drummond, this app is continuing to grow in popularity across the country, helping club-goers and DJs "cut out all the garbage in between the music and the dance floor."
Alexander Drummond of Charlotte, NC
is the self-made entrepreneur and designer behind the upcoming, revolutionary mobile app known as ReQuestz. ReQuestz Systems, LLC, provides a user-friendly platform in which club-goers and nightlife aficionados can easily send music requests to DJs found at local bars and nightclubs. Alexander Drummond, Charlotte, NC resident aims to continue to develop the app to become widely available to consumers and performers all over the country, as it has already gained footing in popular destinations such as Miami, New York City, Las Vegas and Los Angeles.
