DJ Halo produces a nasty remix for BADBADNOTGOOD’s track, “Six Degrees” featuring Ghostface Killah and Danny Brown.  Even though unmixed, it still hits with his unique production style. We expect more to come from DJ Halo.

DJ Halo Biography

I have been a DJ/Turntablist for about 15+ years but I would more say 4 years less as I had a pretty serious accident happen to me when I was 22 in which I injured my left arm badly and did not really get back to DJing for quite some time.  I have done spots all over the country while touring with the MCs; Brokemc, Domer, The Metermaids, MINDSpray Crew, Haiku, Swordplay, Sketch Tha Cataclysm and others in addition to booking solo DJ tours in the USA and Europe.  I have performed @ SXSW 5x’s and held DJ residencies at Knitting Factory NYC, Supreme Trading BK, Galapagos BK, Macri Park BK, Big Easy ME, Legion BK and Karma NYC.  I have recently relocated to Oakland, CA so I expect that list to grow in the next year. I have released alot of thematic based mixtapes (Heart & Soul) that are much different from my live show sets, with many posted here for FREE download (Juno Tape pts I & II, Mix for Lovers, DJ HALO’S WOMEN in music…).

I have been very involved in broadcasting most of my life having regular shows on WPKN 89.5FM, WVOF 88.5, an internet show on RWD.FM and a syndicated podcast throughRapreviews.com.  I should be popping up on a station in Oakland soon so look for info on that when it happens.  I had worked in commercial, non-commercial and college radio at 10+ station by the age of 25, when I finally settled in Bridgeport, CT to have shows on WVOF (Subways & Sidewalks) and WPKN (Mornings on WPKN).  You can download episodes of the podcast or archived live shows from the Podcasts and Broadcast Show Archive pages.

Over the past few years I have become increasingly obsessed with creating music on my own, more specifically Remixes, but also original instrumental productions of my own which you check out more on my Producer and Remixer page.  Coupled with this new obsession is a bizarre need to create specific cover art for each production, whether it be a cannibalization of the original art or a totally original piece, so I have also become very involved in creating graphic art both digitally and on canvas.  Holler: GarageBand, Ableton, Reason & CS4 Suite!
