DJ Snow-bklyn’s is a soulful house DJ from New York.
In 1977, before cell phones or even pagers ever existed, my friend, Tyrone, and I felt like truck drivers as we used our CB radios to communicate. As kids we admired the two truck driver characters, Snowman and Midnight, from the 70s’ movie series, Smokey and The Bandit. Midnight, played by Burt Reynolds, was the character that inspired Tyrone’s, childhood nickname and old roller skate crew, The Midnight Rollers. Our roller skate crew, we went all over town battling in intense skate tournaments. Snowman, played by Jerry Reed, was the character that inspired my childhood nickname and current DJ name. Just like the original characters, we were partners in many adventures. That was how my DJ identity was born.
About a decade later, in 1983, I experienced house for the first time when my ex-girlfriend’s brother put Tyrone and I on at the Paradise Garage club as his guests. After that experience, I kicked off my skates and began my knowledge an understanding of soulful house music.
Since 1994, I have been working with companies who manage events and production shows. My technician position comprises of working on events, like Fashion week, and video production events, As far as playing as a DJ, I have been a resident DJ for Nightlife parties at Lox Lounge. Performed at, Club XL, LP & Harmony, Franks Lounge and BarMuffin in Osaka Japan.
Larry Levan and Timmy Regisford, have been very big, big inspirations in my life as soulful house DJs. They taught me how to keep my music fresh, exciting, and new. Their way of feeling the crowd’s energy showed me how I could do the same to take that energy higher through my music.
