Half of Proxxy & Lantern
DJ Lantern has been playing for over a decade. Raised in Northern Virginia he’s risen to the top of the D.C. Baltimore club circuit. Having a number of high profile gigs, he has gained much respect in the local surrounding DC area. A master of mixed genres, his best skills are displayed in Breaks and Drum & Bass but has been caught playing just about every other genre in the EDM dictionary. Lantern is currently holding residency at Transit in VA, where he has been pushing the nuschool funk sound of breaks and has been getting more than a favorable reaction from the dance floor. Over the past few years, DJ Lantern has locked down a huge number of gigs in many different cities. One look at his gigs list should offer a glimpse at the high level of dedication Lantern puts forth towards his craft.
DJ Lantern has played along or opened with such acts as Stanton Warriors, The Crystal Method, Krafty Kuts, DJ Icey, Donald Glaude, Aquasky, The Breakfastaz Josh Wink, The Freestylers, Richard Humpty Vission, Dj Micro, Jackal and Hyde, Dieselboy, Hive, Dj Craze, Sharaz, AK1200, DJ Fixx, Deekline and Wizard, The Rouge Element, Tom Real, Dj Mutiny, NAPT, Paul Oakenfold, Sandra Collins, John B, Lisa Lashes, Mauro Picotto, Lee Coombs, Scott Henry, Baron, DB, Dj Dan, Elite Force, Reid Speed, High Contrast, Mampi Swift, Charles Feelgood, Rabbit In The Moon, Baby Anne, Keith Mackenzie and many more.
He’s dropped his science in various cities on both sides of the Atlantic, such as New York NY, Chicago IL, St Louis MO, Seattle WA, Nashville TN, Pittsburgh PA, Philadelphia PA, Baltimore MD, Richmond VA, Charlotte NC, Dallas TX, Fort Lauderdale FL, Miami FL, Atlanta GA, London England and many more to come.
DJ Lantern is one of the rare few Yankees who (alongside DJ Proxxy, the main man behind Essential Breaks), were invited to play at Herbal, Medicine Bar and The End nightclub in London. Without a doubt, DJ Lantern is a true Breakbeat enthusiast for the D.C. area and beyond…
