We had the good fortune of connecting with Rex Buchanan and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Rex, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
I started Discosapien to bring the joy of music, dancing, singing and entertainment to my life and to the events of my clients. There is no better feeling than working for yourself, so when my pops offered to help me out with my first set of speakers to get my DJ business going I gratefully accepted and the rest is history! Today our team performs at multiple events every weekend throughout the year at weddings, corporate events, photo booth events, nightclubs, festivals and beyond. Couldn’t ask for a more fun profession and it was well worth the effort of getting it going over a decade ago.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
My art is bringing the energy and creativity of electronic music production and performance from the festival grounds to the private event space. By infusing my DJ sets with remixes, mash ups and unique versions of songs everyone loves I keep the dance floor moving all night. I built my company, brand and vocation Discosapien one step at a time over many years and the biggest challenge of recent memory was the COVID crisis but we made it through 2020 so we now know we can make it through anything! Along the way I’ve learned not to take life too serious but just do your best and try to treat people right and everything will work out the way its supposed to. I want the world to know that Discosapien is there for them whether they want to throw an amazing celebration or want to learn how to produce, DJ and record music. Hit us up!

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I would see a show at Red Rocks, Meow Wolf, Mission Ballroom or one of the other amazing venues Colorado has to offer. Grab a bite to eat in RiNo at the central market then walk through graffiti alley before grabbing a cocktail at one of the surrounding bars. Maybe go for a hike in Boulder or take a drive up to Breckenridge if you want a mountain experience. You really can’t go wrong!

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
My shoutout definitely goes to my folks. Without their support I don’t know where I’d be today.
