dj phatrick in loves of a dj

Check out this cool short documentary, Loves of a DJ, directed by film students Faroukh Virani & Bobbi Dai, on Los Angeles-based Chinese American DJ Patrick "DJ Phatrick" Huang. The piece delves into Phatrick's Chinese American identity and his love of hip hop, as well as his work as a DJ and youth educator. Take a look:

The film is a co-production of University of Southern California School of Cinematic Arts and the Communications University of China. The filmmakers were originally interested in making a documentary about Asian Americans in hip hop, and later narrowed it to focus on Phatrick.

A great deal of the documentary features Patrick's work with Sessions LA, a music writing, production, recording, & DJ program for youth and young adults in Los Angeles. If you haven't heard, they're currently trying to raise money to sustainthe program through an IndieGoGo campaign. To learn more and donate, go here.
