This era’s most promising music artist is shaking up the music entertainment industry with his novel signature sound that is essentially a harmonious mishmash of various elements from different genres. Mischiff is an independent music pro who has leveraged the incredible combination of his creative spirit and military discipline to consistently pump out new tracks and effectively mastermind his own career.
Mischiff took his first step into the music industry in 2012. At the young age of 15 years old, he took inspiration from the late Adam Michael “DJ AM” Goldstein’s work. After several months of intensive study and practice to hone his DJ skills, he finally found himself ready to showcase his talent and introduce himself to the world—thus, DJ Mischiff came to life. Today, he is growing to be known and loved by clubbers across the States.
The name was inspired by his childhood nickname, Malito, which meant mischievous child. Even as a young boy with an endless amount of energy, he made sure to engage his creativity and partake in activities as much as possible. Idle pastimes such as watching TV and playing video games were at the bottom of the list of things he would rather do. Unfortunately for the adults around him, a child’s creative activities herald chaos more often than not.
Ironically, as an adult, he is far from mischievous. With incredible time management skills and a sense of discipline, he strictly adheres to his timetables and plans. These qualities were developed and honed by years of training and service for the country as a member of the New York Army National Guard.
Mischiff’s first gig as a young disc jockey was at a school dance for his middle school in Freeport, New York. That single event has brought an unbelievable rush of thrill and fun that it served as the springboard from which he launched his musical career. He would work to further improve his craft, and he began to take an interest in music production.
Several years later, he would have completed numerous gigs at various clubs and events while simultaneously pursuing a career as a Public Affairs Specialist for the New York Army National Guard. During this educational pursuit, his exploration in the fields of photography, videography, and journalism would reignite his creative spirit and passion. Equipped with an arsenal of skills and experience, he debuted in the year 2020 with self-produced, captivating original music.
Mischiff’s authenticity in music is thanks to his full creative control over his career. The artist has no interest in creating music that is unfaithful to his emotions and aspirations. Instead, he endeavors to deliver the best quality music fully and genuinely embodies his vision of creating music that people can relate to.
The up-and-rising star is delving into more genres to further evolve his style as well. “I’m going with the flow and experimenting [with] new things,” he says, “so I am able to make different genres of music.”
