Every partygoer that has ever graced the floor of a club has, at one point, looked up at the DJ booth and dreamt about what it must be like to be the focal point of everyone’s night. A few of those party goers have turned their dreams into reality and mastered the skills necessary to control the dance floor and actually be the focal point. DJ Sisco is one of those people. There’s no straight forward path to becoming a success in the world of dance music, and DJ Sisco took the scenic route. Getting his start with hip hop, he held his first residency at the age of 15 at a club called Charlie’s in Muncie, Indiana. His turntable tricks and energy behind the decks quickly caught the attention of surrounding clubs and radio stations, and within a few years he was a regional favorite with steady bookings.
After making the rounds in the Midwest, DJ Sisco was ready for a change and moved to Florida in 2006. It was here that he started to expand his musical horizons and fell in love with the jazzy feel of house music. He didn’t forget his hip hop roots, however, and now incorporates beat juggling, scratching and a cappella overlays into his house sets while still keeping the mixes seamless, on key and in correct time. 2010 was the busiest year for DJ Sisco yet. He’s the official arena DJ for the Lingerie Football League teams the Tampa Bay Breeze and the Orlando Fantasy, performing in stadiums that seat 20,000 people. He was featured at the Ibiza Beach party that was sponsored by Es Paradis at Winter Music Conference in Miami and also performed at a sold out VIP event for the Vinyl Music Festival in Sarasota. In addition, he performed at the Earthdance Festival in Sarasota and the Fish Head Ball and pre-party in St. Petersburg for the Tampa Bay Times. He ended the year as a guest DJ at Tampa’s hottest house music nightclub, Jackson’s, playing a 4 hour set on New Year’s Eve. 2011 promises to bring even bigger and brighter things for DJ Sisco.
