New Residency: Club Crave – Palmdale CA

Sunday, March 9th, 2014



Last night I had the pleasure of rocking Club Crave in Palmdale CA.  The night went great and I was offered the opportunity to return every other month for the foreseeable future.  The crowd is fun, the staff is friendly, and the drinks are stiff.  I look forward to continuing this new relationship, and rocking many more parties here!  Look for another date sometime in May 2014!

Power 106 Who’s Next in the Mix Contest!

Wednesday, August 14th, 2013


Power 106, Los Angeles’ #1 hiphop station; known for it’s exceptional DJ sets, is hosting a mix contest this month.  They describe the competition as follows:

Power 106’s Who’s Next? In the Mix is out to find the next big DJ! DJs, this is your chance to showcase your talents and skills. It’s not a DJ BATTLE of just scratching or mixing beats, it’s finding the DJ who displays their talents through unique, creative, stylish mixes that people will talk about!

This type of contest is right up my alley, as I pride myself on creative wordplay, toneplay, and smooth mixing.  I’ve entered a set, which I’m quite proud of.  To vote for me, simply head to and click the yellow Vote button, which will change to “Voted” once you have, but an hour after you vote, it will change back to “Vote” and you can vote again.  You must register an account to vote, but once you do, you can vote once an hour during the entire voting period, which spans from Friday, 8/16/13 at 5pm to Wednesday, 8/28/13 at 3pm.

Here’s the mix:

Guitar Center Spinoff – 2nd Place!

Thursday, June 6th, 2013

Tonight I participated in a DJ Battle at Guitar Center. Guitar Center used to hold a bunch of DJ Battles, but it’s been a few years since they’ve held one. I was lucky enough to get to participate tonight, and even luckier to take 2nd place out of about 20 DJs. The prizes for 2nd place included a Blue Encore 100 Studio Microphone, (which is great because a microphone for my new studio is something I’ve been meaning to buy) a pair of V-Moda Crossfade LP Headphones, and a Traktor Kontrol Z2 Mixer…totaling about $950 in value.

Big shouts to Sako (DJ Toxic) at Guitar Center for putting on the battle, and the judges DJ Dynamix – who recently took 5th place on VH1’s Master Of The Mix, and said of my set “If Kid Capri were here, he’d be standing up right now.”  Vick One – DJ on Power106 and Nick Ferrer – Dope DJ and tour manager for Eric D-Lux.  Also to Nick Hogan for hosting!

Opening Day – Crush Sundays – Baja Sharkeez Hermosa Beach

Sunday, May 19th, 2013

Today is gonna be awesome! Once the weather starts to warm up (yes I know we’re in Southern California but people think anything below 70 is freezing here) Baja Sharkeez Hermosa Beach throws a weekly party called Crush Sundays, which starts at 4 and rages into the wee hours of the morning.  I’m fortunate enough to be doing the closing set tonight, and DJing alongside some great DJs who also happen to all be good friends of mine!  The cast of characters includes DJ Scotty Boy, DJ Ricky Jay, DJ Bling, and DJ Fam!  The boys from up north are bringing a party bus from Santa Barbara.  This is not an event to be missed!

Crush Sundays with DJ Splyce and DJ Hardy

Tuesday, June 5th, 2012


I’ve been a resident DJ at Baja Sharkeez in Hermosa Beach for a couple years now, and it’s been great!  Every summer, Sundays get MASSIVE at Sharkeez since the beach crowd is out in full force.  They set up a stage, co2 blasters, the works! This coming Sunday will be a very special one, as my good friend DJ Splyce headlines an event that will include both myself and another friend of mine DJ Hardy from Ann Arbor Michigan.  House music by the beach, amazing tacos, stiff drinks, a beautiful beach crowd, what could be better!  Hope to see you all there!  Check out the event by clicking here!

New Promo Video

Friday, July 29th, 2011

Here’s a new promo video the homie DJ Jimbo whipped together for me out of some footage from Friday nights at Saddle Ranch – Universal Studios, Hollywood.  Saddle Ranch is always bananas, one of my favorite gigs!  No cover, big cheap drinks, plenty of people, what could be better!

It’s My Birthday!!!

Monday, July 18th, 2011

What a week! I’m turning 23 for the tenth time this week, with some big events to ring in the festivities!

Starting off with my Bi-Monthly residency at Sharkeez Hermosa Beach Taco Tuesdays…our slogan is “We’re partying on a Tuesday like it’s the F@#%ing Weekend,” and that’s the truth. Always a packed house, people come out in droves to party on a Tuesday night. The tacos are amazing, the energy is incredible…what a night!

Friday, the homies Dee-Rock, Edrick, Kane, and the rest of the crew are having me at their new spot in Pasadena, 72 North.  I’ve heard great things about this Friday night spot, and I’m looking forward to rocking it!


For Saturday, I was booked at Kress, but now Kress is closed, so I got moved over to Icon in downtown LA.  Looking forward to sharing the decks with long time power106 mixer and all around amazing DJ – E-Man!  If you’re coming out to this one, get here early, and dress the part!

All in all, it’s looking like a great week!  I’m ready to party!!!
