Zodiac is an East Coast native born in the 90's. Zodiac works predominantly in the medium of sound recording, but includes visual art and marketing in his large-scale performances. Zodiac was trained in audio engineering and music production at the Institute of Audio Research in 2009 (New York City). While his love of music and DJing started at a young age with making cassettes for the ride to school, his passion was ignited while living in New York where the bar he frequented needed better music and entertainment. He became the resident DJ there for over a year.
After moving to Los Angeles, Zodiac has done various nationwide DJ & EmCee shows to promote his name. His favorite event that he has worked on is a series of solo shows in North Hollywood called “Jammin’ for Change” at Panda Express where proceeds benefitted agencies targeting education and child hunger. Additionally, he works in Leimert Park Village to help expose the community to black art every year for a two-day Juneteenth Festival.
Zodiac’s style is influenced by jazz, blues, RnB, anything electric, and old vinyl records that he finds in Goodwill stores. Furthermore, he draws inspirations from artists such as Afrika Bambaataa, TC Izlam, DJ Soulslinger, DJ Craze, DJ Qbert, DJ Enferno, Mista Jam, and DJ Target.
Currently, Zodiac is the resident DJ at the Exact Science Gallery and Clothing on Melrose in West Hollywood. He is getting ready to release “Killah Breaks Vol. 1,” and is cooking up “Killah Breaks Vol. 2.”
Zodiac is a new age “Renaissance Man” and loves to harness human emotions to translate through sound and visual art. Some future projects for Zodiac include “The Tupac Vs Biggie Mixtape” and the “Nas ‘Untitled’ Killah Remixes Mixtape.”
His biggest goal as a DJ is to compete in the DMCs and, most importantly, to entertain a crowd of people who want to dance and be exposed to new, yet-to-be-discovered music.
