Born and raised in Los Angeles, DJ Spider has worked tirelessly at developing his craft since he bought his first set of turntables in 1996. DJ Spider’s introduction into the mainstream, however, came when he won the Next on the Decks contest presented by BPM Magazine in June of 2006. Although Spider had already cemented his reputation throughout the L.A. club scene, the contest propelled him to national notoriety. As the winner of the contest, Spider was given the opportunity to tour the US with Mark Ronson, and perform with DJ AM at Mansion in Miami during Winter Music Conference. Around the same time Spider was chosen to be the official tour DJ for Myspace parties throughout the country and consistently viewed on the main page as a featured DJ.
Recently, Spider has begun a Friday night residency at Tryst Nightclub inside the Wynn Casino as well as XS Nightclub at Encore in Las Vegas, as well as his continuing monthly residencies at Borgata Casino in Atlantic City, Sub51 in Chicago, Voyeur in Hollywood, Wall in Miam, Lotus in DC, and more.
Spider has been tapped to produce official remixes for some major recording artists with one of his production partners Mr. Best. They have done official remixes for Usher, Far East Movement, Keri Hilson ft Akon, Lil Mama ft. T-Pain & Chris Brown, Ciara ft T-Pain, Michelle Williams, Patty Labelle & Wyclef. He has also recently teamed up with super producer and artist Lil Jon to do 2 mix cds called Rock Box Vol 1 and 2. Spider has also recently mastered the art of djing music videos, and hosts a weekly party in LA called the SURE/SHOT where he spins music videos and movie clips while hosting music video release parties for artists and doing themed video parties.
Currently Spider is one of the most in demand DJ’s in the US for all types of events. He has toured nightclubs in Japan, Europe and Canada as well as constantly being on tour the US. Though he frequently travels the globe, you can still catch him in his hometown at Hollywood hotspots such as Voyeur, Trousdale, Mystudio, Playhouse, Boudoir, Drais, The W, Crown Bar, Winstons, and more.
