DJ Organic on His Love of Soft Rock and How He Used to Buy Old Ladies' Record Collections

Despite the fact he sports snapbacks and Coolin' Out T-shirts, spins at the Blunt Club, and has a new project with Phoenix rapper Very G., local selecta Dominic Khin Htay doesn't consider himself to be purely a hip-hop DJ.

The 35-year-old, who performs as DJ Organic, prefers to be versatile with the sounds he spins and the gigs he puts on around the Valley, which is why you'll find him dropping yacht rock tonight at Rips during the latest edition of his club night Mellow Heat.
