A great producer and DJ definitely captures what you want and brings it too life would recommend to anyone !!!
Candi is an amazing producer! Professional and her quality is A1 👌🏽. For her to be a female producer & DJ that’s in the class with the best of them, makes her even more dope!!
Definitely one of the best producers I’ve worked with so far! With everyone calling themselves “producers” now and days, it’s very rare when you can find someone with good quality work but Candi has just that and more! Looking forward to working with her again on some more projects!
Super dope producer and DJ!!!
