San Francisco – born DJ Eddy D was never a “scratcher”, which is odd for the Bay Area transplant since he came from an area robust in DJ’s (Q-Bert, D Styles, Beastie Boys’ DJ Mixmaster Mike among the more notable ones). He was more interested in the skill involved in the blending aspect of DJ’ing. All of this happened since he picked up vinyl and turntables back in 1988.
Fast forward to today. DJ Eddy D has been a DJ with DefTal since 2011, beginning as a resident at EyeCandy. He’s expanded his role to work in spots such as Rio’s iBar and Voodoo from 2011-2012, Rhumb Bar in 2012, and Venetian’s V-Bar in 2013.
Being surrounded by all the technology and growing up with new and developing technology, he’s applied this to the local DJ equipment store he’s been working at as his day job for the past five years.
DJ Eddy D’s used his experience to spin more than five genres of music, which includes anything from Hip-Hop, to House, to Latin, etc. He’s always on the move to learn more about his passion, and if that means rocking a private event, a wedding, all while handling the mic, he’s ready to get it done.
