DJ DAY – in 10 Records


Despite his incredible production and DJ-ing skills, California’s DJ DAY is in our opinion still under rated. He’s the type that fits the expression “your favorite DJ’s favorite DJ”.

In 2014 artists and labels often resort to gimicks and shouting louder than the next guy. Not DAY. The man is just too busy working on dope records and gigs.

Dj Day has worked with Stones Throw recording artist Aloe Blacc and Clutchy Hopkins, done official remixes for Quantic, Alice Russell, People Under The Stairs and more. He is a representative of Red Bull Music Academy and the world famous Do Over. He has released various singles as a solo artist, most notably “Four Hills” which was nominated for “Track of the Year” by Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide show on BBC Radio 1.
