Blast Fest is coming to Seattle for the first time! It’s the brain child of a Microsoft techie by day, DJ by night.

This week on KUBE 93.3, I continue DJ appreciation month with DJ BLAST!

BLAST is originally from Nigeria, but grew up in Texas. When he came to Seattle to continue his employment with Microsoft, he was promptly greeted with the Seattle Freeze. Yes, the Seattle Freeze is STILL a thing! 

When I asked about his first set in Seattle I was shocked (but not really) to find out he actually had to utilize The Collective to create his own parties due to Seattle not letting him in.
