We are "DJ dRAN" and "DJ Reno", we've been DJing together for the last 9+ years. We've DJ'ed 100s of Weddings, Corporate parties, and private events. We've also played at a number of clubs throughout the city, and we currently have a DJ residency at Cactus Club on Stephen Ave.
Its our strong belief that Music is one of the most important things in life and it brings people together. Music is everything, it makes the event!
If you're looking for professional, experienced DJs who can create a customized service that will keep your guest on the dance floor all night long, we're the guys for you.
My DJ life started in 2010 when I was invited to an event where DJMIA (DJ for MTV America’s best dance crew) was spinning. I didn't know who she was at the time, but after hearing her play and seeing the way she controlled the crowd with her music, it inspired me. From that moment, I wanted to "rock the party" the way she did.
Shortly after, I bought my first turntables (yes vinyl records) and mixer and started learning the craft of DJing. After a few months, I got my first chance to DJ front of people at a friend’s house party and the adrenaline rush I got from playing got me hooked. I wanted this to be more than just a hobby of mine. Since then I've been Djing semi-professionally doing DJ events such as corporate parties, weddings, fashion shows and private events. I've also DJ'ed at a number of night clubs around the city and I currently have a DJ residency at "Cactus Club Cafe" on Stephen Ave on Saturday nights.
I play a wide range of music genres, but my personal favorite genre is "old school hip-hop" music. I grew up listening to hip-hop, and I still enjoy spinning to it to this day.
My passion for music started with me following my older brothers to a local barber shop where they had a DJ spinning real vinyl. Being young I never considered the skills and techniques used to mix music, but I sure enjoyed it. As I got older, I started to appreciate the showmanship I saw from DJ’s on TV, @ the Bars and Clubs, etc.
I would see the way the crowds would look to the DJ’s for direction on how to move on a dance floor (“Where’s the DROP? I can’t move until I hear the DROP!”). It wasn’t until dRAN asked me to help out on spinning in the next song at a house party where I saw this is something I enjoyed doing.
Going from club to club, Listing to DJ after DJ, I have been able to hear all types of Mixing and Styles. What I love is that there is no wrong style, everyone has a style that fits their personalities. I became a DJ knowing my taste in music will bring an awesome style to the industry.
I have been fortunate to DJ for a few promotional companies and clubs along the way. I have been hired as a contractor for many private events (Corporate, Weddings, and Social gatherings).
I enjoy playing Top 40, Hip Hop Classics and RnB.
