Transcript

Bradley: Today, we’ve got a special guest, Slushii who’s one of the hottest up-and-coming DJs in the world. He’s on the same team as Marshmallow who actually helped discover him. He has millions of social media followers and has played in front of crowds as big as a hundred thousand at events. We’re going to learn from him how he went from minimum wage at BestBuy to superstardom in just a few months’ time and all the tons of parallels that aspiring Amazon sellers can take from his journey for their own e-commerce career. Oh, by the way, he’s made for us intro music that we will have going forward on the SSP that you’re about to hear right now. How cool is that? Pretty cool, I think.

Bradley: Hello everybody and welcome to another episode of the Serious Sellers Podcast by Helium 10. I am your host, Bradley Sutton, and this is the show that’s a completely BS free, organic, unrehearsed, unscripted conversation about serious strategies for serious sellers of any level in the e-commerce world. And we’ve got somebody right now who is not exactly an Amazon seller or an e-commerce seller, but like I tell all e-commerce people out there, sometimes it’s the life journey. Right Julian?

Slushii: Absolutely.

Bradley: I’ve got Slushii here. I am actually in his studio. I don’t have these cool sound effects in my podcast studio, but he’s got that here. Anyways, Julian, how’s it going?

Slushii: Oh, it’s going pretty good. We’re out here in LA during this quarantine. We’ve been all cozy; I’ve been cozy in my house playing some video games and making some music. How about you?

Bradley: Love it. Yep. I’m loving it. This is about one of the only times I get out of my house to come over here. It was a good breath of fresh air. Now, the reason I had you on here is not because you have some amazing Amazon-selling strategies or something like that, but it’s more your life story. Because anybody who is an entrepreneur who sells something got to have the drive, and I think you are the personification of having this special drive. What I always do when I have a guest as I take it back to their superhero origin story. All right. You grew up in Jersey. Now, at a young age, like, eight, nine, 10, 11, did you already have ambitions? Did you know what you wanted to do when you quote–unquote grew up?

Slushii: Yeah, yeah. When I was 13, I was in a really pretty horrible band, but from the beginning, I always knew that traditional education really wasn’t for me. I flunked at every subject in school, aced all my music classes, and it was just something that I was always super passionate about. I did all the studying I could, all the YouTube tutorials and put my head down for long enough until I was ready to get out into the business world.

Bradley: Okay. Then, you actually went from being in the band to deejaying under a different name when you were still in high school. What age were you at¾15, 16¾when you start doing that?

Slushii: I think 15. Sounds about right.

Bradley: When you’re an up and coming DJ at 15, 16, what were the gigs that you were doing?

Slushii: Dude, I was doing Sunday nights at an empty bar because everybody has worked on Monday. Nobody showed up. And battle of the bands in high school, we did that. I was opening up for other acts in the local tristate area, like, Philadelphia. But, I mean, honestly, a lot of my time is spent learning, like, YouTube tutorials, trying to figure out a way to do electronic music and music in general that is fun for me but also hasn’t been done before.

Bradley: I’m already seeing some e-commerce parallels. Maybe somebody’s goal is to be a big private label seller on Amazon, but they don’t have the knowledge or money right off the bat to do that. What do they do? Well, they go through a learning phase. They study YouTube videos or take courses to learn the trade. And, in the meantime, maybe start flipping things on eBay or start buying things at Walmart and selling them on Amazon, like, the arbitrage model, or doing some wholesale before they’re really ready to jump in. Some of these gigs that you were doing, were they mostly for free or you were actually getting paid for it or how did that work?

Slushii: In the beginning, they were free. For battle of the bands, I think you get one Guitar Center gift card or something like that or something like that.

Bradley: How do you stay motivated? You were doing this for a couple years, maybe didn’t hardly get any money, but you were just learning. But how do you stop from just getting de-motivated like, “Hey, I haven’t made it big; I’m not even getting paid for doing this. I’m losing money doing this.” How does one stay motivated and keep that drive to keep going?

Slushii: Honestly, I think it just comes through, again, I never want to speak for others, but for me it’s always been how can I fall in love with music again? And it’s been like that since the beginning. I keep falling in love, whether it’s with a new genre, a new instrument, I think something is cool and new. I always want to quit. There’s always a little voice in the back of my head that tells me to pull the eject plug. When my other alias went down, for those of you that don’t know, my SoundCloud was deleted; SoundCloud’s the audio website, where you can host remixes and their original songs. My account was terminated after five, six years of active use. And at that point, I was just like, “Alright, I’m done. I quit. I give up.” And then, for a last-ditch effort, I thought, “You know what? I’ll throw it all out on the table.” I came up with Slushii. And then, it was just like, “You know what? Since it’s already burning down anyway, I’ll just give it all I got one last time, start from zero, and do what I want to do.” And that’s, I think, why it ended up working; it’s because it’s what I wanted to do.

Bradley: Yeah. It’s something you’re passionate about. It’s funny that there’s actually a lot of parallels in what you said, I think, in people who are selling online. Some people, they start off, “Hey, I’m going to sell online.” And then, they think the first product that they make should need to hit a home run. But sometimes, they don’t; sometimes they don’t make money for a year or two. But what happens is there’s a majority of the population, who not having success in the beginning, got stopped and then there are those people, they’re never going to hit what their original goals were. You had something similar, like, let’s say your first product launch was your first DJ alias. It wasn’t a home run. You didn’t become a millionaire off of it.

Bradley: You even had a big failure; SoundCloud deleted your account. Amazon seller, sometimes they get their Amazon account deleted. Then there are different people; the people who just pick themselves up and say, “This is still my dream. I’m going to do this.” And they keep going. But then, there’s other people who’s just like, “Okay, I give up.” I think it was cool that you kept going through this time. What was your support? Did your family support you in doing this or were they like, “Ah, man, maybe you need to do something else that’s going to get you some more money,” or what?

Slushii: Oh man. I think my mom was really the only one that was adamantly supporting the entire time¾my mom and my uncle. Everybody else just had a whole “have a more realistic life plan” thing, which again, I understand. I put myself in a position to fail, if music didn’t work out. I was failing all my classes in college. I had a job, but it was a dead-end job. I worked at BestBuy; I was probably going to work there forever.

Bradley: You were working at BestBuy; you were 17, 18 years old, freshmen in college. What was your big break? How did Slushii come to be?

Slushii: I remember, before I left for Florida, I wrote two or three songs that ended up becoming a “Make Me Feel” and some more, which are off Brain Freeze. I used to be just a dubstep guy, a heavy EDM guy, and I made those two songs before I left, and I was like, “These don’t fit anywhere.” The SoundCloud stuff happens. I come home and I say, “You know what, this new style that I’ve created; this is cool. I want to roll with this.” There wasn’t any plan for it. It was, “You know what, I like this music. I love anime. I love the Japanese culture.” A lot of people think that it was a very calculated switch over, but I was just some fresh out of high school that was just at the wrong slash right place at the wrong slash right time. It just happened.

Bradley: Okay. Then, did one of those songs go viral for you or how did Slushii come to be basically?

Slushii: I had been putting out songs for probably a few months. I had 2,000, 3000 followers, and I started to build up a following again. And Marshmallow’s manager actually, ended up emailing me. Marshmallow, Jauz¾he managed all those guys. He emailed me and told me to go ahead and send over a few songs and everything. And I didn’t think he was expecting for me to send 30 songs, but I sent over everything just because I’d been stockpiling music. I still do that now. I think it’s always good to have something just in case. I got an email from him. I thought it was fake at first. I didn’t believe it.

Bradley: Had you reached out to him previously?

Slushii: No. No.

Bradley: Wow.

Slushii: Well, I sent a song to Marshmallow, just expecting static. I got an email from the manager who’s now my current manager, and that’s how that ended up happening. It was just because I took a chance. For example, I have a lot of friends that are afraid to reach out to companies and try to create partnerships with brands and companies like that. And it’s like, “You won’t get it unless you go ahead and email and throw the line out there,” unless you’re so and so that has access to everything. I was just some kid from New Jersey who I said, “Screw it. I’ll just reach out.” I have nothing better to do. I’m working at BestBuy. I’m going to school; I don’t want to go to school. I just took a chance,

Bradley: We have had podcast episodes about licensing. It was actually episode 50 where it talks about maybe contacting big companies and maybe getting partnerships in order to license a private label product. And it’s just like you said: Sometimes, you never know. You just got to put yourself out there and don’t think that you’re not going to achieve something or that somebody is too high too to reply to you. You just got to put yourself out there. You never know who might be interested in what you’ve got. And that’s pretty much exactly what you did. Now, in e-commerce, branding is very important. You can just slap any label on a box and you maybe can sell some, but if you really want to build a lasting business, you got to build your brand.

Bradley: And I think from day one with Slushii branding, you guys have had a cool plan. Talk about how the Slushii branding came about for those who don’t know. I don’t know if I want to say “movement” at all, but there’s definitely a visual theme going on, a theme with the sound. Everything is on point, the way you do your social media. And I think that’s one of the big reasons that you could have somebody who’s extremely talented artists like yourself, but if they don’t know branding, they can only get so far. You could have somebody who’s excellent at branding, but if they’re crap at what they do¾same thing in the product world, you can have an excellent brand, but the product is crap¾ you’re not going to have success. Your success, I’m sure you’ll probably agree, is a combination of the talent, the quality, and a great campaign or the branding. How did the slushy brand come about?

Slushii: Yeah. I think when it comes to the actual Slushii logo and everything, I was the one that the went ahead and stitched that all together. I connected the dots, that blue and green gradient, the pink, I just love those colors, so that naturally just worked out. When it comes to actually branding and the social media aspect, that’s just me being me. You could just chalk that up to just me being just the person on social media. When it comes to getting the song dug out there, getting the music out there, making the right connections, I’m not an agent, I’m not a manager. The people that I have on my team are basically the engine that fuels Slushii. I’m the creative mind that comes up with the music that sometimes chimes in with art ideas and stuff like that, but we’re essentially a team. Slushii now is essentially a team. I mean, the branding just came from me liking a color and having an idea and just again going for it.

Bradley: Yeah. More parallels. I knew there would be parallels here because I knew this story a little bit, but it’s cool how, as you’re talking, I can tie the parallels to just e-commerce because not one person is great at everything. You could be an excellent person at developing a cool product, but then, you might not know how to do social media or you might not know how to make an Amazon listing. You might not know how to do your artwork. Well, don’t try and do it on your own or say, “Hey, I’m going to take a Udemy class and learn how to draw. It’s going to be bad. You hire people; you build a team who are experts in those fields and then you all share the wealth together. It was like that meme though, “Well that escalated quickly” from the time you were working at BestBuy to your first festival, which was that Hard Summer, I forgot what year that was.

Slushii: 2016.

Bradley: 2016. That was actually funny. I mean, I think that was the first festival you played at. That was actually the first festival I had ever attended, and I didn’t even know you at that time. I just happened to be there and that was my first ever festival. Now, I’ve been to a million festivals, but that was the first ever festival. I went to Hard Summer. And I guess that was your first one were Skrillex was. What was it like to have Skrillex, one of your idols, surprised you onstage? That surprised me because I was just in the car. I was like, “Oh my God, he’s coming up for this guy I don’t know. I don’t know who he is, but there’s Skrillex!” For you to have an idol just come out and surprise you like that, what was that like?

Slushii: Again, no words. Skrillex was doing his OWSLA radio podcast, a radio show thing. Every now and then, he would have them at his store, and I had met him prior at a festival in Florida, but I just asked him casually one day, I was like, “My very first show is coming up, and it would mean the world to me if you came to the show.” I was completely expecting them to be too busy because he’s the busiest man on the planet. I play the show; I’m just there, just doing my thing, playing super nervous, and some guy just hops on the decks and I’m like, “Oh my God, it’s Skrillex.”

Slushii: And what I didn’t know is that my manager had texted everybody, my tour manager, VJ, everybody, just, “Skrillex is here. Don’t tell Julian.” I probably would’ve gotten so psyched out. Lo and behold, I play Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites. That’s like the best Skrillex song, and he hops on stage, and that’s the ultimate culmination of what is my life like. This is everything. I had so many dreams that I thought were so out of reach, and at that moment, they were all falling into place at the same time. It was just a lot. I remember, there’s a photo online somewhere, for all the eagle-eyed people out there, of me holding a phone up to my ear. That’s right after the set. I’m not sure if I called my mom or if I called my manager¾my momiger, I don’t know. I literally just couldn’t believe it. If you would’ve told me like five, six years ago that that would be happening, that Skrillex would be saying that I was the future and I’d be out in LA, I don’t know.

Bradley: I mean, less than a year before that point, you were in BestBuy making a minimum wage.

Slushii: A lot of people don’t know this, but I actually was in a math exam when my manager texted me about Hard Summer, saying that it was happening. I was in a math midterm when I got the text. That day, I was like, “Okay, I’m putting my two weeks into BestBuy. I’m dropping out of school right now. I’m moving to LA.” I asked my professor, “Hey, can I use the bathroom? I really need to go.” The professor says, “Sure. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Go ahead.” Mind you, this is probably end of winter, early spring. It’s cold. I put my backpack on, which is weird, because you’re just using the bathroom. why are you putting your backpack on? I put my backpack on; I walk out; and I never come back.

Bradley: Another parallel in the e-commerce world. When somebody has finally made it with a product or they get to the point where they can quit their job, that’s like what you’re describing there: the dream moment of when somebody can submit their two-week’s notice to their boss and basically say, “Hey, all right, I’m leaving the company. I’m not working a nine to five anymore because I made it on my own.” It’s very similar to what you had there.

Slushii: I felt this way for so long. I had this dream; everybody told me it was stupid and that it just wasn’t going to happen. Parts of my family wanted me to be a lawyer. They wanted me to take the practical approach, and that’s just not how my brain was wired.

Bradley: What were some of the other big moments of your career? You’ve only been in the game for a few years now, but what were some of the most memorable things? Was it a crowd that you played with? I haven’t been with you through the whole ride, but that EDC Mexico that you played a few years ago, that set was amazing. The crowd, I had never seen so many people, I don’t know how many they counted. I don’t know how many tens of thousands of people were just right there. How does that even feel to be playing in front of tens of thousands of people, just knowing the lyrics to your songs and headbanging all in the same beat.

Slushii: I mean it’s again another one of those things that words really can’t describe. EDC Mexico, EDC Vegas, both are on the same level for me. On a scale of just craziness, sets like that I black out. I start the set, and then, it’s like I blackout, because I know I can’t screw this up. It’s a super important, and then it’s over. And then, I’m like, that just happened; that was crazy. I think Vegas for me was the big one; that was like the big Holy crap. That was the main stage EDC. It was like, Holy crap. This is insane. That was the ultimate because I never even dreamed that I’d be playing main stage, you know? What do you even say to that? That’s crazy, you know? I did it and it was super fun, and I was super nervous. Again, you wouldn’t see it from watching the live stream; it’s online. I blacked out. I just went into autopilot mode, and I just had a job to do.

Bradley: Now, I think the parallel here is when you have a moment like that, like, “I can’t believe this is actually me. This is my life. I’ve really made it here.” It’s when an Amazon seller or somebody who’s made their own product, they actually run into somebody on the street using it or something. I remember when I used to work for a cell phone case company, and I was standing in line at the post office, and I actually saw somebody with the phone case, I’m like, “Oh my goodness! I played a role in that product,” and it was just a regular person who’s using it. It was a surreal moment similar to you being on stage just in front of so many people. But I think that’s the parallel I can draw from there.

Bradley: I think one of the reasons also for your successes is you come across as really genuine, and you’ve mentioned this before, you want to help people through music because music has helped you through some things, and to be able to inspire people. And I think, again, going back to e-commerce, there’s people out there who are talented and they want to make products. And I’m not saying this is bad; they’re just looking for the money and that’s fine. There’s people who make products that may help people, but they don’t even care, like, “What is that that you’re holding in front of me?”

Slushii: Dude, I’m actually a pretty big Amazon consumer. I would say that probably 50% of the things in my house are from Amazon. Prime shipping’s pretty amazing. I think it’s out of battery right now, but it’s a Bluetooth speaker, with an LED screen on it. You can set it up, plug it in, and you can have animations going. I don’t need it of course, but something cool that I could put in my studio that somebody thought of like, “Wouldn’t it be cool if….” I relate to products like that; stuff like that little thing behind you.

Bradley: What is this?

Slushii: Watch this. You spin it on the table, and it spins forever. I got it on Amazon.

Bradley: That’s satisfying. You see, that’s my point. For somebody to come up with these things, you have to be thinking about the needs of the person, and that’s what you’ve done through music. But then, I think people who make products with the consumer in mind, like if you’re doing it from a place where you’re trying to make somebody’s life better, where you’re trying to actually help somebody, you’re going to make money at the same time, but people can relate to that and you’re going to do much better. And I think that’s another reason of your success, because people can see that, “Hey, this guy is making music not just to commercialize it, but he’s trying to inspire people.” There’s this technical term that we call on Amazon. It’s called private label. Basically, somebody has a product, you go get that product, you customize it a little bit to make yourself put your own brand on it¾maybe add some little features here that you think would make it cool and then you launch it as your own product. Now, in the DJ world, there’s something similar. It’s making remixes of songs and a lot of DJ sets are there. Again, there’s another parallel where not everything somebody has to make is just, “Oh, I have to reinvent the wheel on everything.” Yeah, you got to make your own original stuff, but there’s nothing wrong with taking somebody’s song, remixing it. Artists even come to you to do some of their remixes. Who are some people that you’ve done remixes for?

Slushii: Well, the most glaring example, the Skrilla mix that I did; that’s the killer drop. Just I just changed the style. Essentially, that’s what I did. The song wasn’t broken, so I didn’t fix it. I just added my little touch to it and re-imagined it the way that I wanted to play it. I just added a dubstep beat to it and rearrange the notes. Some remixes are more involved, but that one just ended up just working like that; it just sounded cool and it was so simple.

Bradley: One thing I think that is cool is you broadening your horizons. You’re not just saying, “Hey, I’m only a musical artist.” You have a lot of passions and you have a lot of ambitions that come from the passions. And I know one of your passions and you were the one who got me into it, and I’ve probably seen more than a thousand episodes of anime. I buy manga books and things like that. I have you to thank for that. But since you, from a young age, been into that, and now you have this career that you know is opening up other opportunities, can you talk a little bit about what you have planned for that?

Slushii: Yeah, it’s really cool. I’ll just go out and say it. I have a manga coming out; we’ve been working on the first chapter for the longest time. We hope that we can craft an anime out of it, but it’s all definitely still very work in progress. Chapter one is finished. I’ll actually show it to you after we’re finished recording. It’s cool that music’s opened doors for other stuff. I can do scoring, voice acting, creative endeavors whether it be making a manga or I eventually, one day, want to make a video game. Music’s given me opportunities to open doors to avenues that I didn’t even know were even in my wheelhouse.

Bradley: Now, you’ve been able to collaborate with a lot of artists. Obviously, you have a few songs with Marshmallow out there. It was funny, I was watching this brand-new show on, I forgot it was ABC or something, The Beauty and the Baker, something like that. And I’m listening to it, and one of my favorite songs of yours comes out. It’s the one that you did with Sofia Reyes that was featured in that TV show. Hey, of course you’ve collaborated with a lot more and some more that we can’t mention yet, but some pretty big names later on this year. Speaking of collaboration, you didn’t know I was going to do this, but here we go, here we go. There’s music artists, there’s actors, there’s whatever, and they sometimes have side hustles; a lot of them get into real estate, or they start some other programmer or whatever the case is. Now, I have a proposition for you. I know you’re passionate about Amazon, and you have one of the most creative minds I know. What if I help you start a side Amazon business where you can create some products that you can think of, and then what I’ll do is I’ll help you to get them launched on Amazon, and who knows if you’re a 1/10th as successful as you are on Amazon as you are in the music world, you could be pretty big in the Amazon world. What do you think?

Slushii: Well, I know that we’ve talked about this before in Mexico. We have a few, really cool tech ideas.

Bradley: Yup. Yup. A laser one, I remember you had talked about.

Slushii: Oh yeah, dude. I mean, you already know that I’m down. Anything that I can think of the makes my life easier or so, I would love to just start making stuff that makes life for producers and for people just like tech accessories, like desk, desktop accessories and stuff like that. But I would love to get into that world. Just because it’s so accessible and I feel like it makes sense just because of how into tech I am. I know exactly what I need, like what ports and USB hubs and type of display accessories and stuff I would want for my own setup that don’t exist right now.

Bradley: Yup, I think let’s do it.

Slushii: It’s second nature.

Bradley: There’s a very fulfilling thing to it. I mean, similar to like, I can only imagine how you might feel when you see people tweeting about your music or somebody saying something, “Oh man, this really inspired me. I really needed this.” It’s like amazing feeling. It’s a similar feeling when you produce a product and then all of a sudden you read the reviews like, “Oh my God, this product saved my life. It’s so perfect.” It’s that similar feeling. You can get it that way. All right. Guys, so you heard it on the Serious Sellers Podcast; look out for Slushii’s line of Amazon products coming in 2020.

Slushii: Let’s get it.

Bradley: All right, now on this part of the show, we call the TST or the T S T 30-second tip. All right, so you’ve been giving us some of your life hacks, I guess, but what is something that you can say that’s a life hack or just some words of wisdom that you can say in 30 seconds or less that you think would be really valuable for any listener who hears this?

Slushii: Okay. I have some stuff. Don’t overthink, follow your gut; because if you don’t, and you overthink it, like I’m overthinking what I’m saying now, you’ll end up convoluting such a pure idea. Do it first, analyze it later, and have a message, know what you want to say to people, and follow that. Those two things are in tandem. If you do them together, you’ll have success in whatever you want to do.

Bradley: I love it. Love it. That’s great advice. And you’re a perfect example. Like I said, hey, you’re not an Amazon seller, but I think everybody listening…

Slushii: Yet…

Bradley: Yet until the end of this year. But I think what everybody can see is the parallels, and so I hope you guys who are aspiring entrepreneurs take a lesson from the life of Julian and his path to where he is, which is definitely considered successful now. You can have that similar success if you that stick-to-it-ness¾ is that a word? Stick-to-itiveness, like stick to it. Stick to it. There’s a word, something like that if you stick to it guys…

Slushii: Like intuitive?

Bradley: Like it’s intuitive and stick to it; there we go. We’ll make up a new vocabulary word. But anyways, it’s funny, a lot of people see you when you’re on stage and when you’re in social media as such an outgoing, outgoing person and so bubbly, and people see me, you know I used to do the all the Zumba videos, and people think I’m such an outgoing person. They hear me on the podcast, but it’s funny, you and I are the same. That’s what we do for the public, and we’re fine with that. We’re comfortable, but our natural habitat is being introverts and stuff. I think that’s why you and I have gotten along so well, but I just wanted to say, “Thank you for coming on the show, but thank you for your friendship too.” I probably can count on one hand the number of people I really consider friends just because I’m not that outgoing of a person. It’s hard for me to click with people. And you and I like this from day one, your story has always got me in life. I’ve always been inspired by you. I just want to say I appreciate your friendship and thank you for coming on the show and let’s make you an Amazon success now too.

Slushii: Well, thank you for having me. And, yeah man, let’s make the world easier for a lot of people.

Bradley: Let’s get it.
