Born and raised in Washington D.C., David Rooks aka DiWrecked has held a long symbiotic relationship with electronic music and lifestyle. His first experience with underground dance music came at a warehouse party during a student exchange trip to Russia in the mid 1990s. This experience embedded itself into his stream of consciousness, helping to create a desire for a new medium. He brought this desire back to the States, and in 1996 DiWrecked made a decision to become a DJ. Within a year, DiWrecked had bought his first pair of 1200s and began to refine his personal style behind the decks. Determined to become the best, DiWrecked taught himself everything he needed to create a solid foundation on which to build his career.
After spending his entire life in the Washington D.C. area, DiWrecked found himself looking for a change of pace, and in 2003 he moved to Massachusetts to settle down and plan out his career goals. Since his migration to the Northeast, DiWrecked has been striving to become a positive driving force in the New England scene. He brought with him a passion for EDM and its culture, looking for any way to support its cause.
DiWrecked is the Founder and Frontman for Beatdown Productions, a crew originating from a close circle of friends in the Washington DC area in 2000. Since then, the crew has spread out and grown in numbers, now with members in MA, CT, NY, MD, and DC. With the ongoing support of his crew, he has helped to support, promote, and throw several events on the East Coast and beyond. In December of 2005, Beatdown Productions collaborated on the newest electronic weekly event in Springfield MA, known as Movement of Sound. Putting his experience to good use, DiWrecked took charge of the booking for MoS, bringing him in direct contact with many of those responsible for creating and maintaining the Springfield scene?s structure.
Since moving to Mass, DiWrecked has taken the Northeast by storm. With over 50 live performances in the last year, including various radio performances and shows in some of the best venues New England has to offer, DiWrecked continues to leave his mark. With an onslaught of upcoming performances up and down the East Coast, be prepared to see more of this artist on the rise.
DiWrecked?s dynamic sound is an aggressive mash-up of Rugged Tech House, Driving Techno, Hard House, and NRG. With his major influences coming from such DJs / Producers as Mauro Picotto, Paul Van Dyk, D.A.V.E. The Drummer, Bad Boy Bill, Nick Sentience and BK, he brings to the tables a refined style of energy built to decimate dance floors.
