Local Beats: DJStanB of Port Chester Spins House, Bachata and More

We spoke with local musician Stanley Benscome about what music inspires him — plus he gives us his 5-word pitch to a record label.

We discovered Port Chester DJStanB cruising around SoundCloud, a popular audio-sharing site. Take a listen to his music above and read about how he got into the DJ business below:

Patch: How did you get your start in music?

StanB: I was always into music and was very interested in learning and bought my own computer and mixer after seeing DJs in clubs. I started practicing in my basement with very little knowledge. A friend help me to learn basics of the program and from there I picked it up and practice every day, also having a full-time job working for Optimum/Cablevision.    

P: What are your greatest musical influences?

S: DJ Tiesto  

P: How would you describe your music to someone you just met?

 S: Open format variety mixes of all genres, like house, Top 40, hip hop, Latin, etc.

P: Give us your 5-word pitch to a record label.

S: Passion, dedication, motivation, responsible, honest 

P: Tell us your hometown, where you live now and whatever biographical details you'd like to share:

S: I was born in White Plains, was raised in the Dominican Republic and the U.S. I'm 24 and currently live in Port Chester with my wife and my two Siberian huskies Luigi and Daisy.
