From his first mixtape at age 14 to international tour dates in places like Cancun, Miami, Dubai and Washington, DC, DJ Trayze is no stranger to music. His turntables follow him everywhere as he is rising to become one of the most in-demand selectors in the music industry. Concert stages, DJ battles, international fashion events, and the hottest nightclubs and lounges have all called upon his talents. After a few FM and Satellite radio internships in the late 90’s, Trayze made his way into the DC nightlife scene and hasn’t looked back since. “I was spinning at clubs that I wasn’t even old enough to get in to” he remarks, but that didn’t stop him from working his way up through the scene. As a student of the vinyl era, Trayze has always stayed true to his Hip Hop and Turntablist roots, but explores many other genres of music and new technologies. His love of all types of music proves true in his mixes, which are an exciting and eclectic mix of styles spanning many decades.
Trayze has the ability to move any crowd and seamlessly blend his way across any genre of music. “Party-rocking is my real love in music,” A lost art that he intends to keep alive for a long time to come. His ability to read a crowd and set the perfect vibe has caught the attention of top national and international nightlife venues, as well as garnered him a sponsorship from the Adidas Originals brand. He has provided sounds for companies like In-Style Magazine, American Express, and Nike, and has rocked all types of parties from movie Premier events, to Presidential Inaugural parties, to international car shows. Trayze brings true talent to any party through both technical skill and selection, and he will continue to rise to the top as one of the most innovative and exciting DJs in the nightlife scene.
