We head to Canada for our firth Team Brisk Streamer Of The Week, with none other than DJ Little Fever!
Where are you from and where are you living now?
I am Dj Little Fever From Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, but I was born in Sudbury, Ontario, Canada.
How did you come up with your DJ name?
Well the long and short of it I use to go by DJ Little B for the longest time. When I moved to the Niagara region in 2006 I met a DJ at at a venue I was a resident at and he asked me what my DJ name was, I replied “Little B” and he replied with “I’m Little A, we could go by the Little Alphabets!”. Suffice to say, I shut that down pretty quick and changed my name from Little B to Little Fever. This combined the old with the new using a part of my former radio moniker, “Johnny Fever” (when I was presenting on WKRP in Cincinati), so the best of both worlds per se.

Where did your musical journey begin?
Honestly, started in my friends basement making mix tapes for friends, the old school way. Enjoying sharing music with my friends was what got me started.
What made you decide to take up DJing?
It was the perfect mix of social and nerdy at the same time that really scratched that itch (that I still have to this day). Being able to take a person on a musical journey and have them feel something is truly awesome and to see someone shocked at a cool remix or live blend is a constant high that I still chase!
What are some of your interests/hobbies/passions outside of streaming/DJing?
I’m a dedicated family man, certified coffee fanatic and a bonafide bad movie enthusiast!
When did you start streaming on Twitch?
I stared taking it seriously in August of 2020.
Is there anything you really hope to accomplish in your life, whether it be related to music or not?
In all honesty, I would love to tour and dj full time. Being able to travel the world and share music all over the globe has always been a life long dream of mine since I started my music journey (and still is).
Also I would love to own and run a coffee shop (small pipe dream)
Who are some of your favourite streamers? Why?
Each one of these artists has some thing special that inspires me, but one thing they all have taught me is to be true to the music and vibes that you love. When you do that, people really gravitate towards that, they LOVE what they do.
What is your favourite genre to play? Why?
My favorite style of music to play is mashups, anything and everything mashups.
I love Ghetto Funk, Baltimore Club, Top 40 Blends, anything that mixes and mashes up the original, that’s my jam.
What are some of the most memorable events you’ve participated in or streamed?
I have done some streams and some festivals that have been truly fun but I have yet to have that WOW factor moment, Well maybe one, I failed gracefully out of the Redbull 3style about a decade ago (LOL), that was an experience!
What does Team Brisk mean to you?
Friendship and variety, I have met so many cool people and different styles of DJing because of it and I am truly blessed to be on this team.
What’s your favourite thing about DJing on Twitch?
The world wide community and making new friends from different parts of the world. Getting their feedback and input live in the mix is amazing..
What is a challenge you’ve faced as a DJ/streamer?
Honestly, visibility. Even though Twitch is global I truly believe my passion and talent should be shared and enjoyed by more.
I know I have the skill set and the drive and should be out there more, butI just don’t know what that missing piece or secret sauce is. That said, I will continue to strive to be out there pushing my love of music
Do you have any special projects, streams or events you would like to tell us about?
Nothing as of yet. I am slowly building my unique catalogue of remixes mashups and soon original music coming soon.
Is there anyone you’d like to shout out and/or thank?
There are so many first off not to sound cheesy, but my Mom as without her constant playing of music in the kitchen of our house I would not have experience the music that help influence me early on in life.
My wife who puts up with my drive and excitement and help put me in a proper direction creatively.
My graphic designer friend Dean Cole, that single handily saved my DJ career with a logo rebrand. One that saved me from quitting and inspired a metric ton of creative ideas from his one MILHOUSE style drawing!
And a endless list of djs that have help elevate my drive each time;
DJ Starting From Scratch
This Is Jester
DJ Baby Yu
DJ PPL Move
