DJ Fresh Recalls His Memories With Vinny Da Vinci For The House Music DJ’s Birthday. Vinny Da Vinci has been in the music game for quite a long time.
Vinny Da Vinci has been in the music game for quite a long time. The house music DJ was getting a year older. He thus got birthday messages from a lot of his fans and music industry celebrities. DJ Fresh went on to speak about he and Vinny became close.
The radio personality spoke about how he partied in Hillbrow. “As fate would have it, I bumped into [Oskido], [DJ Christos] at High Point & they said I must come party at Club Arena. I walked into this place, and it was HEAVING, mainly to hip hop and R&B. There was literally a handful of Kwaito artists @ the time, so only the 5 or so hits were played. The DJ? Vinny. I spent most of the night by the DJ Box watching him throw down. Hehe, I even put in a Request for ‘Marradona – Out Of My Head’, which he graciously agreed to play. DJ Fresh was thus a regular at the club for over 2 to 3 months, he says that Vinny was kind and patient with him. “Especially [because] I was sometimes that guy, making requests.”
“If you had told me at the time, that we would one day be on the same lineups; be business partners; release Fresh House Flava together and forever change the scene; gig together in Miami, Manchester and Southport; Be Brothers: I would have told you to Eff Off!!! Well here we are! The industry could have not asked for a nicer guy and legend to lay down the foundation that you have.”
