IdeasCity Detroit: DJ Stacyé J, Detroit Underground Music

A DJ set from IdeasCity Detroit Fellow alum DJ Stacyé J, in a journey from old school Hip Hop, with a little bit of turn up and the wild sounds coming out of Detroit


DJ Stacyé J was only 17 when her mother helped her grab her first set of turntables. Afraid of what others might think of her and her new found love for turntablism, she kept her passion a secret from others. With the help of DJ Trixter, DJ Sicari, and Piper Carter she was able to get her first gig opening up for the Foundation Celebrating Women in Hip Hop. That one show was all the motivation that Stacyé J needed in order to take the necessary steps to becoming one of Detroit’s most recognizable female DJs.

Since pursuing her DJ-ing career full time, Stacyé J has had the opportunity to open up and DJ for many heavy hitters in Hip Hop and R&B such as: YG, Ab-Soul, Waka Floka, and Curren$y. She has also DJ’ed on BET’s “106 & Park” and The BET Experience with Detroit’s most promising artist Detroit Che.
