Bio

During his days as a youngster, Eskimo hosted a “hooky” party in his mother’s apartment after she left for work. People, literally came from every borough, and stayed home from school or left very early to go to the party in the Bronx, hosted by Eskimo. This would be the first of two “hooky” parties. Eskimo, at sixteen years old was honored to help Afrika BamBaataa, one of the founders and members of Zulu Nation, and God –Father of Hip-Hop; deejay at his mother’s birthday party (who, also lived in the same apartment building as Eskimo). Later he would be fortunate to help him spin at The Fever, a club in the Bronx. All of this helped Dj Eskimo to better his skills and see the importance of practice. Rumors of another hooky party started to spread, to his surprise, so at the last minute he decided to throw another one. This time he would be caught by his grandmother and sent to live in D.C.

In Washington D.C he attended Howard University and eventually joined a reggae DJ set called "Kingpin". While in D.C., Dj Eskimo has made his mark as being a highly respected deejay.. He’s noted for his ability to blend the old with the new as well as merge different genres of music within a matter of minutes...and still not miss a beat. Although his foundation as a deejay is rooted in Hip Hop, he grew up listening to a variety of music from funk to country, blues to rock. According to him, the variety makes for a better deejay so he refers to himself as a "Universal Deejay". He first came up with that concept during his days of spinning at one of the most remembered and missed clubs in D.C. (State of the Union). During the mid 90's Dj Eskimo deejayed at Spy Club, Chamber of Sound, Bar Nun, Kaffa House, Republic Gardens and a string of other clubs throughout D.C His credits don't end there...he was one of the main deejays to spin at the "8 hours of Hip Hop" event put together by BET's own ,one9.

he did most of the scratches and produced Royal Alchemist Productions underground banger "Middle Passage" which was loved by the local heads as well as abroad. An Austrian Hip Hop magazine stated, "they f*****n represent on the turntables that's for sure." Eskimo's skills were first captured on vinyl then he added cuts to "Trouble Man" a song recorded by the juggaknots in the late 80's.

Currently Dj Eskimo is the House Dj at Anzu Lounge, located in Ecletic Adams Morgan, Washington DC
