About the Art of the DJ
We represent a worldwide culture of artists that have revolutionized the music scene for generations. From radio, festivals & concerts, major production suites, and across the independent music scenes on every continent; you’ll find the DJ orchestrating the crowd and manipulating sound right before your eyes. Originators like DJ Kool Herc and Grandmaster DXT paved the way for the world to see the Turntable in a new light forever.
With over 20 years of combined experience, we’ve always led by the mentality each one, teach one. Even early in our teenage years we would take time to teach others around us as we were learning. We have always been inspired how music could empower us and those around us, to the point of even taking individuals around us out of negative paths in their lives and into a newfound love and inspiration for creative expression. That type of power is something to embrace and spread like wildfire and we are constantly looking for new avenues to do so!
