VS23 started Djing in the Pittsburgh party scene back in ‘98, affiliated with Candy Gang Productions as well as Rise Up!. Later he moved to Puerto Rico, and was the scratch dj for the group, Slimy Nuggetz. While in Puerto Rico, he performed on several television shows, including “Tarde en la Noche con Luis Gonzales”(The Late Show), “Frente Sonico” (Sonic Front), and the “Sprite Spring Break TV Tour”. Over the years, he’s played shows in Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Philadelphia, State College, Baltimore, Virginia, New Jersey, New York, Puerto Rico, London, UK and on Drum n Bass TV’s radio show on the worldwide web(www.dnbtv.com
). Also his original productions have been played on the Mixdown FM Radio show in Nashville, TN, as well as a several online radio stations.
After taking a six year break from public performances, he came back in 2007 performing at Play 3.0 and Play Breaks Edition, and as a result gained a slew of other bookings, and a new crew affiliation- Bad Moral Character. Already in 2008 he’s played on Drum n Bass TV several times (www.dnbtv.com
), as well Twisted Production’s “Heaven On Earth”, BMC’s “Dance Out Loud” in March, and “Wardance” on May 3rd, as well as a headlining slot at Rehab Records’ “Tantric” in Virginia on May 2nd. Since May, VS23 has rocked out in the main room at two Tru Skool parties (one of them opening for the legendary Dj Dara), as well as one of the headlining slots at “Pulse” in Baltimore. Though Breaks are his specialty, VS23 is known for his diversity in genres, so don’t be surprised to hear some Drum n Bass, UK garage, Electro, House, Techno, Trance, Hip Hop and even Ghettotech. Look for big things in 2008 from this “up-and-comer” who’s no stranger to the spotlight.
