January 16, 2014

Philip Vanderleest, Starkville resident and MSU graduate with a degree in aerospace engineering, has forgone — at least for now — pursuing rocket science in favor of his hobby­turned­career: mixing music as a disc jockey.

This was an unexpected turn of events, Vanderleest said, though his present position has long been in the making. Better known by the moniker “DJ GLOtron,” Vanderleest said he never could have imagined what would come out of his passion for music.
