Chatting With Corrupt (Passionate DJ Podcast #175)

In today's episode we speak with James Caudle, also known as Corrupt. Not only is he a killer performer (as he describes it, a “hybrid” DJ), but he's known for his massive remixes and pounding original tracks.

Corrupt made the hour-long drive from Columbus to visit us in the studio, and tell us all about his life as a working DJ/producer.

Early in his career, he was at the forefront of the music industry around The Ohio State University. While successfully managing four college nights simultaneously, he quickly became the performer everyone planned their weekend around.

Fast-forwardinging a few years, Corrupt's first originals received massive artist support from the likes of Tiesto, Don Diablo, and The Disco Fries. He then followed-up with remixes of The Chainsmokers – Something Just Like This, 3LAU – On My Mind, and Blink 182 – Adam's Song… all which gained him further support from The Chainsmokers, 3LAU, Alison Wonderland, Two Friends, and many more.

With over 1.5M combined track plays, Corrupt's dedicated fan base continues to grow. We truly appreciated the opportunity to gain his insight. Check him out at
