Exclusive Press Interview with Ocean County, New Jersey’s very own Greg DiNero

Today we had an exclusive chance to interview Greg DiNero


Where are you from?

I am from the Jersey Shore! Toms River NJ, there is no place like it!!

Why did you first start making music?

When I was young, like 7, my dad brought me to Atlantic City. I saw a dj cutting it up on turntables for the first time, so that Christmas I got turntables. Fell in love with djing. When I was in high school I used to DJ “Teen Nights”. Basically night clubs would have nights where the party was for ages 13-18. While DJing the teen nights I realized I was pretty much just promoting other people’s music, so I wanted to make my own. That’s what started my production, probably around age 18.

Talk to me through your creative process.

I try not to have a process, with music it’s really just about creating a vibe in the studio, or in your headphones and going with that vibe. Most of the time when you try to over think it, nothing good comes from it.

Who would you say inspired you the most?

Scott Storch has always been my idol. I grew up listening to his production! It was impossible not to, the guy dominated the producer world! As I got older I really dug deep into his story and how much of a work horse he was! He’s so inspiring. I have actually gotten the chance to link up with him a few times!

What’s the best advice you received?

Nothing is handed to you, it doesn’t happen overnight, trust the process. Those are some of the notable pieces of advice I have gotten.


How would you describe the music that you create?

Production placement wise, rap, all styles of rap. As far as my personal projects, anything that would go crazy in the club while djing. Dancehall, pop, rap. My main focus for my personal projects is to make a fun record I can play out.

What’s the coolest most important show you’ve played to date?

It’s a three way tie. The first time playing at Harrahs Pool Bar in Atlantic City was awesome because I used to dream about playing there when I was a teenager. The first time on the radio was obviously special. And the first time in LA. They are all special in their own way.

What do you want your legacy to be? How do you want to be remembered?

I want to be remembered as the man that can do it all! I am a family man, I want to be the kickass dad to my sons but also the dj who’s the life of the party and makes hit records!
