DJ Sinestro is one of the DC/Baltimore area’ most loved DJ/Producers. With over seven years experience and countless parties, club nights, and special events under his belt, it is no wonder people are talking. His mixing style is like none other in the US. Combining elements of Progressive House, Techno, House, Electro, Break Beats, and off the wall tracks, he is best known for live performances that span 8 to 9 different genres. Combining the ability to go through records at a fast pace (one of his mix CDs had an amazing 42 tracks in an hour!) and reading crowd response to enable him to play the right tracks at the right times. This eclectic style is a direct response drawn from influences DJ/Producers like Richie Hawtin, DJ Dan, Deep Dish and Laurent Garnier, to rock and hip-hop artists like Devo, Bad Brains, Beastie Boys, Run DMC, Public Enemy, and a huge helping of underground and pop culture.
Alone or as part of “SnM” with DJ Miah, Sinestro always pushes the boundaries and does what he loves best which is making people dance. Sinestros career highlights include his 2nd place finish at the 1997 Buzz/Fever DJ Contest (beating out such talented DJs as Wilhelm K, TY-T, J Smooth, and Prime Mover). Sinestros huge DC fan base and kinetic skills have landed him as a headliner or support act for some of the biggest names in electronica including Carl Cox, Josh Wink, Richie Hawtin, Mixmaster Mike (Beastie Boys), Superstar DJ Keoki, Bad Boy Bill and far too many more to name.
With so many DJs popping out on the scene these days, Sinestro realized the need to separate himself from the competition. One way was to produce and promote his own events. As a promoter, Sinestro has produced and promoted countless successful events and club nights over a 5 year span. Another weapon in Sinestros arsenal has been his amazing skills as a producer and A&R man. With continued DIY passion, Sinestro released his first record on his Random Recordings label in ’96, and has continued to produce and perform new tracks to rave reviews. Sinestro has also amassed a crew of top DC area DJs to perform as part of The Syndicate, his management company with partner DJ Miah.
Currently Sinestro is working alongside legendary DJ/Promoters Scott Henry and John Tab at the world-renowned Buzz nightclub in Washington DC, frequently rocking crowds there. Week after week he continues to amaze crowds and press alike wherever he may be. Future singles are in the works for 2001 including; a collaboration with Frankie Bones and Nigel Richards set for release on Hard to Swallow; a collaboration with Peter Tall from Bassbin Twins set for release on Barely Legal Records. Keep your eyes and ears open for this rising star as things have only just begun.
