“I’m a perfectionist. When it comes to mixing music I study the crowd. It’s not only about picking the right song, but mixing it the right way. I want to make it seamless, flawless.”
As a child with a solid musical foundation built from the stacks on stacks of records in his father’s collection, DJ Heavy was captivated by the weekend DJs in Philadelphia. Mix show DJs such as Cosmic Kev, Doc B, Jazzy Jeff, and DJ AM ignited the spark he needed to craft his own style and sound, and the mix show DJ in Heavy did not disappoint. In 2009 DJ Heavy’s talents led him to join Clear Channel’s WSNX 104.5 Mixin’ Mafia team. “I’m not about slamming tracks, but striving to keep ‘mixing’ alive.” Heavy’s video DJ-ing also sets him apart from the rest—he is recognized not only for playing but also creating and editing his own music videos.
