KDrew is living the DJ dream. Before the emerging DJ/producer was racking up millions of Spotify listens for remixes of Zedd and Lady Gaga and headlining Webster Hall, KDrew was simply Kevin Drew, a bright-eyed kid from the Jersey suburbs with big dreams and bigger beats.

In “My First: A Guide to New York,” an exclusive video produced in partnership with Bulova, KDrew talks about his humble beginnings, from recording music in a house closet to going to New York to meet with record labels

The video vignette features KDrew retracing his remarkable journey from his first gig at Bowery Poetry Club to learning the craft at Eastside Sound and then getting his big break at the legendary Webster Hall
