What was your high school life like?

I was a bit of popular but also a nerd. In the first year of high school I was part of the “popular” group. The second yea everything went left and lost friends. No friends and no one to rely on. My length was also and issue, I got teased because of my height(was 1.82 meter at the time). I learned from it. I learned that I am stronger than anyone’s words.

Have you ever experience racism?

I did. So many times! People made fun of my skin color and called me a monkey or gorilla. I still experience it as we speak. Especially in some Facebook groups.

What talents do you have and what are your hobbies?

Being a DJ is my hobby and also my passion. Also do I sing but only for myself. I am way too insecure to sing in front of others.

When did you start being a DJ? Do you have a sample of your first mix? Can u let us hear it?

Last year May I started with DJ classes at DJ Boot camp Rotterdam by Sir Edward.  He is a famous eclectic DJ. I released my first  Sound Cloud mix-tape in April this year.
Roses and Rozay!

Who supported during your journey of becoming a DJ?

My family. They first thought I was joking LOL. But when they saw how happy the DJ classes made me, they supported me through it all.

Mimi deserves all the blessings that are coming her way.

Who is your favorite black or colored person in the media?

Rihanna is amazing. She is one of my idols. Why? Because Riri is very down to earth and pays a lot of attention to her fans. Her hustle is also very commendable. She is not just an entertainer. Owning several businesses is also somehting she does well besides singing. I admire that tremendously.

Do you think more females should DJ? Or is it more of a men’s thing?

It is definitely not a men’s thing! I think there should be a female take over to show that not only males can be a DJ but females are here to slay too.

What do you want to achieve?

I want to play at Big Festivals and produce my own music.

    DaChoyce Rapper the one to watch! Fun New Single Out! Spanish

    Who is DaChoyce?

    Dachoyce: Hi, my name it’s Joyce Santos and I am originally from Brazil but raised in Spain 😊 I live between Barcelona and Amsterdam

    Joyce and her momma

    What inspired you to start music?

    To be honest being in music was an unexpected decision. It was not planned at all. I have started “freestyling” while drunk with friends “haha” they invited me to a studio to give it a try just for fun. It apparently went well so I kept going and found my passion.

    How did u come up with the name DaChoyce?

    Actually, my friends started calling me DaChoyce in high school as a word-game/wordplay and I think it was meant to be because I’ve been chosen for this 🥺 I have been using this nickname ever since!

    More and more people are starting to understand and accept that black is beautiful and powerful and they love it.

    What are most of your songs about?

    ‘Livre’ is my latest song, and it is about freeing yourself from any situation, person or even yourself that brings you down. About overcoming it after fighting this negatives. That is what ‘Livre’ is about 🤍

    Is there colorism in the Spanish or latino community in your opinion?

    I think in Spanish and Latino community colorism is getting more neutral as time passes by. More and more people are starting to understand and accept that black is beautiful and powerful and they love it. The even wanna copy it. That’s what I’ve experienced and seen so far, but we’re getting there!

    Baby Joyce and her mother <3

    Have u ever experienced racism in life or in the music business?

    Not in the music business but I have in life, and not directly me personally but to my family members and melanated friends while being with me so that hurts the same or even more! I cannot bear to see how they get treated sometimes.

    What do u think of platforms who do not support a darker skin artist because they already have one ?

    I think they should go f*** themselves, and us melanin people should keep focusing on creating our own platforms and spaces where we are Kings and Queens. This gives us a chance to be loved and appreciated in our own way and by our own people!

    We saw some amazing pictures, are u model?

    Yes! Modeling is part of my job as well. I used to do it as a teenager and now with the music thing it came back. I picked it back up! “haha” I mostly do photoshoots with @tomclark.visuals but I also do jobs for agencies!

    Joyce by Tom Clark

    What is the main message u want to put out as a person and an artist?

    Never give up, don’t be a victim. You should rest if you need to but don’t quit. When things are hard, trust me, they will get better!
    Try to be positive, trust yourself and the process, be a bad ass 🤪🤪 that’s what I’ve learned and wanna inspire so far 🤞🏽

    DaChoyce

    Where do u see yourself 5 years from now?

    Travelling the whole world with my music and working on different other projects that I am planning and working on! Helping people and creating a positive impact! Eventhough this sounds typical, just watch me 🤍

    What advise would u give an up and coming artist?

    Trust yourself and the process. Do not trust anyone out there. Just trust God, and you’ll be good!

    NEW SINGLE ALERT!

    I’m releasing a new single I hope y’all love it 🤍 No voy a volver
