1
00:00:01,968 --> 00:00:04,642
It's New York Fashion Week and DJ Robbie

2
00:00:04,677 --> 00:00:09,656
Wilde is busy working the exclusive Project
Runway designer reunion Party.

3
00:00:11,173 --> 00:00:13,473
Wilde lives in a world of rhythm and bass,

4
00:00:13,508 --> 00:00:14,948
he just can't hear it.

5
00:00:14,983 --> 00:00:18,142
Ear infections as a child left Wilde completely deaf

6
00:00:18,177 --> 00:00:21,435
in his right ear and with only 20-percent hearing in his left.

7
00:00:21,470 --> 00:00:23,488
Did you ever feel sorry for yourself?

8
00:00:24,637 --> 00:00:27,435
Never, no. Sometimes I'd even forget it sometimes myself.

9
00:00:27,470 --> 00:00:30,967
Although hearing is the most important sense in a DJ's life,

10
00:00:31,002 --> 00:00:33,322
Wilde was determined to make it.

11
00:00:33,357 --> 00:00:35,419
He got his first shot to perform at his father's

12
00:00:35,454 --> 00:00:39,072
restaurant nearly a decade ago and hasn't looked back since.

13
00:00:38,817 --> 00:00:40,969
You know I still consider it as a hobby.

14
00:00:41,004 --> 00:00:43,354
I really do love it. Like I don't see it as a job, you know.

15
00:00:43,368 --> 00:00:45,705
And that's the best part, if you love something, you know,

16
00:00:45,794 --> 00:00:48,484
you don't consider it as a job, 
you know,you're happy to go to work.

17
00:00:48,519 --> 00:00:51,591
Wilde went to DJ school to learn the art of turntablism.

18
00:00:52,747 --> 00:00:55,630
And also relies on his computer to see the music

19
00:00:55,665 --> 00:00:58,483
and feels the vibration,literally. 

20
00:00:59,545 --> 00:01:02,430
He's dubbed "That Deaf DJ" by club goers and promoters 

21
00:01:02,713 --> 00:01:04,581
and it's a moniker even he uses.

22
00:01:04,832 --> 00:01:07,475
But Wilde says it's more than just about his deafness.

23
00:01:07,510 --> 00:01:10,898
You know, I don't want you to see me as
a deaf DJ or a deaf kid trying to DJ.

24
00:01:10,933 --> 00:01:15,138
I want you, I want you to see me as
a great DJ that happens to be deaf,

25
00:01:15,173 --> 00:01:17,486
you know, because, you know, 
I don't want sympathy, I don't want,

26
00:01:17,521 --> 00:01:20,879
"Oh, let's give him a gig, because,
 you know, his hearing is impaired."

27
00:01:20,914 --> 00:01:24,479
His skills got noticed by HP
 and earned him a spot in a commercial,

28
00:01:24,514 --> 00:01:26,615
thrusting him onto the world stage.

29
00:01:26,650 --> 00:01:29,425
It doesn't matter that I can't hear the music.

30
00:01:32,154 --> 00:01:35,381
That he's doing it through touch without being able

31
00:01:35,416 --> 00:01:36,999
to hear the music is a wonderful story.

32
00:01:37,034 --> 00:01:40,114
Besides, some things are better left unheard, he says.

33
00:01:40,149 --> 00:01:42,934
You know, there's a lot of sounds out
in the world you don't want to hear,

34
00:01:42,969 --> 00:01:44,933
I like it muffled, you know.

35
00:01:44,968 --> 00:01:48,172
-It's, it's...you know,
-I like who I am. I'm proud of who I am.

36
00:01:48,207 --> 00:01:51,519
When he's not DJing,
Wilde is in the studio producing music.

37
00:01:51,554 --> 00:01:54,070
What's your message for those who are trying

38
00:01:54,105 --> 00:01:55,164
to chase a dream, just like you?

39
00:01:56,010 --> 00:01:58,054
Just, honestly, never, never give up.

40
00:01:58,645 --> 00:02:01,950
Sarah Hoye CNN, New York.
