Biography

“You may have heard of him before. He gigs in the states as Kid Danger, and Black Dominoes is his nomme de remix. His first remix was Vampire Weekend’s “Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa” and it somehow found its way onto the airwaves of NPR and the BBC.

Only a year in the business and he’s already shared live bills with Diplo, the Black Lips, DJ Klever, Flosstradamus, Explosions in the Sky, KRS-One, the Toxic Avenger, Man Man, and the Black Kids to name a few. He records with a busted old Toshiba laptop he bought with student-loan money. Everything gets fed through an old Gemini mixer and an old head amp that has some interesting effects on it, he also borrows sounds from the internet, rips stuff off of old vinyl, and use some old looping and effects pedals he and his roommates have lying around to help create sounds."

His remixes for the bands Vampire Weekend, Yeasayer, Fleet Foxes, and dance edits for the Bag Raiders DJs have been played all over the world.

A Black Dominoes live DJ set has the multi-genre tracklist of a DJ like Diplo or Girl Talk with the energy of a Black Lips show. He’s done sets all over Atlanta (the W Hotel Midtown, MJQ, the Drunken Unicorn, the Masquerade, Lenny’s, the Local, 97 Estoria etc.) and Athens (the 40 Watt Club, Little Kings, Farm 255, Go Bar, Rye Bar, Tasty World etc.) and currently spins at three serial events: Striped Socks in Athens, F’N SOCIALS’ TOPLESS at the Glenn, and the Magpie Vintage Party at the Young Blood Gallery, both in Atlanta. In 2008 so far he has done DJ events in New York City, Boston, and Las Vegas among other cities.
