Multi-award winning DJ, including Best DJ in 2006, 2007 & 2008 for the Omaha Entertainment Awards, named Scion Breakthru Emerging Artist in 2006, titled a ‘Deep House Pioneer’ by The Reader and recognized as a NextAid artist, Brent Crampton has been pushing the boundaries of music and culture throughout the Midwest.
His sound centers around the Deep House and Global Soul movement, yet defies genres, dropping anything from underground disco, credible & conscious hip hop, party rocking classics and world flavors such as afrobeat, batucada and afro-cuban drum sections. Most importantly, his music has a message: Bringing people together – connecting through music – releasing in dance.
He began his love affair of DJing in the fall of 2000 and has since held residencies or played at all of the top nightlife spots in the Omaha area. His monthly event, “loom – Weaving the Social Fabric Through Dance” founded in 2006 has established itself as “the longest running dance party” in Omaha, according to the City Weekly. Guests such as Kevin Yost, jojoflores, Sabo, FLX, Sabine, Raven Fox, Joe DiPadova and Julius The Madthinker alongside Crampton have brought a soulful dance party to a middle-tier Midwestern city that previously had none.
In addition to his Turntable Tutorial DJ class, the art-music fusion shows – ColorSound and Art Reach, holding the Mr. X spot for the Red Bull Music Academy and being the NextAid.org Omaha rep, his promotions and DJing falls within philanthropy, touches on social progression, education, art and elevating culture.
His impression has been made throughout North America, having performed in places such as Chicago, Miami, Montreal, Las Vegas, Boston, Dallas, Hawaii, and has promoted shows or played alongside talent such as King Britt, Alton Miller, Colette, Sierra Leones Refugee Allstars, Woody McBride, Josh One, Tim Sweeney and Adam Gibbons. In all, his driving ambitions have made him one of the most sought after and active DJs in the area. “There is a healing power in music – and I want to get that out to the people.”
