DJ Poun

Las Vegas, NV

You may have seen him in Jay-Z’s hit movie “Fade To Black”, have heard his music production in EA Sports’ wildly successful video game “NBA Live”, or have seen him rocking a sold-out club in Sin City such as “Rok Vegas”. From the international lands of Tokyo, Japan (Club Harlem) to the diplomatic club vibes of Washington, DC (The Park), DJ Poun’ has just about seen and done it all.

The younger sibling of multi-platinum super-producer “Just Blaze” (Jay-Z, Mariah Carey, Rlhanna & others), DJ Poun’ has been at the helm of many a celebrity parties, including Lebron James & Beyonce’s 19th and 25th birthdays (respectively). DJ Poun’ also has a major nationwide tour under his belt (Roc The Mic Tour 2003) and has shared the stage with some of the world’s best-known artists and DJ’s (Usher, 50 Cent, Kid Capri, DJ D-Nice, DJ Cassidy, Funkmaster Flex).

In 2004, DJ Poun’s exceptional talent for “rocking crowds” was discovered by upper management at music mogul Jay-Z’s flagship establishment, the 40/40 Club New York City. Claiming residency in November 2004, DJ Poun’ transformed the musical soundscape of the sports bar, quickly turning it into one of the hottest nightclubs in NYC.

Following his success in NYC, Jay-Z & the 40/40 Club management offered DJ Poun’ residencies at each of their subsequent ventures, including Atlantic City [2005] and the $20 million Las Vegas club [2008].

As of 2010, DJ Poun’ holds a monthly residency at the 40/40 Club [Atlantic City], creating room for his multiple weekly residencies in some of Sin City’s hottest venues. As one of Las Vegas’ most sought after disc jockeys, DJ Poun’s residencies include “The Foundation Room” (House of Blues), “Eye Candy” & “RumJungle” (Mandalay Bay), “The Heart Bar” (Planet Hollywood), and Rok Vegas (New York Hotel & Casino), all in addition to his corporate accounts at nationally recognized brand stores “Metro Park”, “Guess”, and “Marciano”.

DJ Poun’ continues to rock crowds in New York and Las Vegas, and the “Official Bum Squad DJ” will be expanding his presence to Los Angeles, Miami, and D.C. in the coming months.

With a distinguished passion for music and an incomparable drive for perfection, DJ Poun’ will continue to “raise the bar” for event and club DJ’s for years to come.
