ANIMAL


Animal's skills and talents as a DJ/Producer immediately began to shine through with his emergence as a serious presence on the Dance Music scene over 15 years ago. His calling card is his ability to blend genres seamlessly and take dance floors by storm while providing his listeners with an evening to remember.

Animal has racked up tens of thousands of performances and appearances and has held residencies at some of the hottest venues. The Playboy Mansion, The Winter Music Conference, The Groove Cruise, Mynt Lounge, MIA UltraLounge, The Shelbourne, Primal, Havana Club, Tongue & Groove, Eleven50, The Office, Cosmpolitan, Fluid, The Lions Den, Aura, Oxygen, The Koo Koo Room and The Living Room have all been rocked by Animals' beats. He has performed along side such renowned dj's as: Funkagenda, Anthony Atalla, Boris, Darude, George Acosta, Oscar G, Charles Feelgood, Icey, BabyAnne, DJ Dan, Huda Hudia, and Faust and Shortee to name a few. Some of his current and past residencies in Raleigh, NC include Still Life Nightclub, Myst UltraLounge, Solas Nightclub, Spy Nightclub, Dual UltraNightclub , Mosaic Wine Lounge, London Bridge, Kings Entertainment Complex and Cashmere Lounge. He also hosted a successful radio show in the Raleigh market for Curtis Media Group (Pulse 96.9 and 102.5).

Animal has been involved with music since the age of 6 years old and is proficient on several instruments (vocals, piano, drums and percussion). Having originally majored in music education, his main focus has been on DJ'ing and working tirelessly on his music productions and attaining his Audio Engineering Diploma from The School of Audio Engineering and Institute of Technology in NYC which he achieved in 2008. While enrolled, he had the opportunity to learn mixing, recording, and production techniques from some incredible audio engineers, including, Danny Wyatt (Curtis Mayfield, Mos Def, Norah Jones) John Sickett (Dave Matthews Band, Phish) and Mike White (Whitney Houston, James Taylor).

Animal has many successful songs and remixes to his credit and also works with longtime collaborators Jamal Lasha (Rory Breaker), and Jonathan Wagner (BassGate) who collectively bill themselves as the "WundaTwinz". Some of the music artists he has worked with or remixed include Jay-Z, Missy Elliot, Linkin Park, Snoop Dogg, Jada, Jadyn Maria, La Roux, Delerium, Usher, and Wideband Network.
