Biography

The creative forces that drive Whitty are his performances and human connection between him and his audience, and his audience with each other. The giving and receiving of positive energy through music. The ritual of dance, body movement and social interaction with all cultures, races and religions, leading us to try to forget the perceived differences that divide us.

He feels that we in the western world are losing sight and sense of what is really important in our lives! The elusive simplicity of love, connection and unity as one human family rather than what vacant celebrities glorify.

Whitty believes the meaning of his life is in trying to make a difference through music. To grasp the attention of people in one room. An audience connected through positive music to help create a reaction that helps release our natural positive energy flows. A natural reality check to the tribal human animal and instinct.

Whitty credits his family environment in Ireland for beginning and nurturing his love of music for the first years of his life. Music of all styles and genres holding to a belief that if it makes you FEEL, then it can’t be bad. He began DJ-ing in local clubs while still a young teenager, earning himself an agent who gave him his start playing in Ireland’s capital city of Dublin. He played consistently throughout his college education on club tours in Ireland and along with slots in England where he gained a degree in Electronic Media.

Through his frequent visits to the states to perform he developed a love for Florida and in March 2004 moved there permanently to pursue a career. He feels that the diversity of people and their cultures challenges him all the more. He now calls south Florida home. Since the move Whitty’s career has developed nicely. He’s had sets at LoveParade04 in San Francisco, Ultra 2004 and 2006 Miami, newtimes readers choice club dj of the year 2006 and 2008, and residencies at Pearl Miami and Capones Ft Lauderdale, Discotekka+Forbidden room Miami, Pawn Shop Miami, AMF 07,GEMINI music fest, St Patrick’s day fest, HeavenMF, Char Ft Myers, Nocturnal, 90 degree Miami, Voodoo Lounge Ft Lauderdale, Residency @ voodoo bar South Beach Miami, as well as a long running residency with SPANK SUNDAYS Ft Lauderdale, and his “Twist-Ed Underground” Radio show on Vybe radio.
