Man! There’s a considerable amount of new GOOD music coming out. I’m impressed. It’s crazy. I just remember a few years ago, in the States, House music came from such an underground form of music. And look at it now… it’s the best genre of music out there.
As with the usual amount of hype on any new “thing,” House music became so mainstream that many popular rappers and r&b artists have collaborated with super producers such as France man David Guetta and the infamous AfroJack, creating the ultimate style of dance music.
That’s what it is about house. Beside the passion, and the way the sound has its very own way of telling a story, house music is very adaptable - making it possible for many types of genres to bleed through it. You can literally take an existing song, slice it up, add a few of your own drums, and a snappy lead with a simple - catchy melody, add those slices in, and BOOM! A remix is born!
For example, I’m working on a new remix. I’m taking the very popular record from Joe Arroyo - Rebellion, and making a completly different version of the tune by adding a lead hook and some deep bass with a big kick drum. I’m adding this kind of wind effect - and it’s pulsing in the background - growing through the first build up and into the break. But that’s enough of that. Can’t tell you all my secrets.
Make good music!
What’s your favorite house music genre??
There are so many types of sub genres within house music! What’s your favorite? Vocal? Minimal? Tech? Big room?
I just started doing mash-ups. I wasn’t really a fan of them till lately. I heard this sick mashup by T-SEB, and it changed my whole perspective on the ability these edits hold.

There are none. You make the path, you don’t follow it. Don’t follow, lead; and if you want to follow, then follow me, & and together we can make a change. Happy birthday to me… I
I always wonder about the next song I’m going to remix. I usually try to find a GOOD song that doesn’t really have any good versions beside the original. Then I try to keep the original theme, but giving it that AMARi twist. Because why make a remix if your not going to put a piece of yourself into it?
The world is filled with people that pretend to know what living is. The fact is, no one knows what living really is. So we follow these leaders, because they claim to know what they are doing, but in all actuality no one knows - we’re just getting along. You can follow the rules, follow the status quo, follow the leader, but me… well im’a do me.
Uhhh, where’s the good music at?!?!?!
It’s so hard to find good music these days. Out of the 50 songs that I listen too, I’ll get about 3. And then it depends where you’re playing. If your playing a a bar, you gotta play different then if you were playing a club. People don’t want too hear bigroom music in a small club, but what if I want to play bigroom? That’s what they play in the festivals. I wish there was a place you could go, and spin whatever you wanted - without being famous. We need a bigroom in Miami.
With all the business, the rules, the money, and the drama - you start to loose focus on why you do this. But then everything clears itself out and the camera focuses. It’s about having fun. See you tonight.
There’s nothing like friendship. If friends are family, then i have too many christmas presents to buy this year. Shout out to Dj T-SEB, and the rest of the Sunny Jamz crew. Like a buddy of mine said, “You’re nothing without your entourage,” and I’m glad my entourage is big enough to pack the staples center. Thank you for all the support, thank you for all the love, and thank you for your honesty. Amari life just got brighter. All the deejays working Miami, shout out to ya’ll as well. Unfortunatly, it’s a struggle, but as long as we’re struggling together, it’s not so bad.
There is nothing like having the crowd scream the popular lyrics of that song your playing - hearing them all come together for that brief second or two. I Love that feeling. Being a dj is about having a good time, it’s about the music, and the celebration. It’s about keeping that energy alive, spreading, and changing - influencing emotion through sound. “Painting with melodies.”
But in a city full of competition, where knowing someone gets you into a club, instead of actual skills - it gets difficult. The problems inside the club are far worse, and if you don’t keep an eye on that original lane of love you have for providing the sound, you might just loose track of it all.
