Raphael Valentino (Cupid), born and raised in New Jersey, has always had a passion for music. Receiving his first turntables at the early age of 14, most of his free time was dedicated to learning the art of turntablism and making mixes for his enjoyment. The passion grew into a hobby, and then into a means of paying for college. Gaining an interest also in music production, Cupid also creates remixes and mash ups that are widely used.
Working for local clubs and lounges in the NJ/NY area, Raph earned the title DJ Cupid for having a birthday hours from Valentine’s Day. You can find Cupid at all types of venues in the tri-state area spinning Hip Hop, House, 80s, and Mash Ups.
