We had the good fortune of connecting with WavesOnBrand and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi WavesOnBrand, what is the most important factor behind your success?
WavesOnBrand’s growing success is attributed to the talent and realness of the DJ’s (Candlestick, Motivation, Skrechy Skrach) and their followers. By staying genuine to their roots and craft, their recognized WavesOnWednesday’s at Houston’s Avant Garden has created platforms for hippie’s, hype beasts, rap artists, sexy ladies, and free spirits to vibe out and party together. Candlestick, Motivation, and Skrechy Skrach create a frequency and momentum by working together that can be experienced through their djing, livestreams, clothing apparel, and unique musical projects. WavesOn looks to continue working with the industry’s best such as Dreamville, OVO, Chopstars, etc., and push to greater heights.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
WavesOn’s (Candlestick, Motivation, Skrechy Skrach) hard work, creativity, and consistency continue to push the brand forward. Candlestick’s numerous mixtapes, big artist features (Drake, NTS Radio, Apple Music, etc), and experience in the industry brings the credibility and know how we look for in a leader. He guides the team and leads by example. He’s the Michael Jordan of the team. Motivation is the cool and laid back Scottie Pippen to the team, who brings the intensity and turn up at an instant. His djing techniques and ability light up a crowd makes him extremely special to the team. He’s worked with multiple brands and partners throughout the US. We are proud to have him on the team. Skrechy Skrach would be the Dennis Rodman of WavesOn. Skrechy sets the tone for a party with his unorthodox musical style and techniques. His style is a synergy of different forms and is immediately experienced. Skrechy continues to build the WavesOnBrand through his skill and identifying other Djs throughout the US, who we can showcase.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
If this were pre-covid times, we would bring people to Avant Garden of course and support the homies throughout the week. WavesOnWednesdays at Avant Garden on that Westheimer with Candlestick, Motivation, Skrechy Skrach. On Thursday, we would go checkout the OG’s in the game….The Waxaholics at Alley Kat or whatever dope venue they’re at. On Friday, we would visit Dayta djing with the sexiest people in Houston. He’s a beast! Then we would visit DJ Flywhite for the bottle popping. Saturdays….we go to Weeeeeepa or Bombon! Checking out Actbadd, 4thlrgst, and Gracie Chavez doing it for the Raza. We End the Night wherever DJ Mr. Rogers is at……..He’s the GOAT!!!
