DJing is reading a room and knowing how to juggle people and what they want and what you want,” says Angel Coleman, one half of twin DJ duo Angel and Dren. Intuition is key — or perhaps in their case, it’s twin telepathy.
Born in the Bronx to Jamaican immigrants, Angel and Dren, 26, grew up surrounded by music. “You couldn’t block it out if you tried,” says Angel. Dren says her sister spontaneously proposed DJing after spending some time “messing around” with a friend’s equipment.
