Maniac Magee is a DJ, MC, & songwriter. After growing up in and around Washington, DC and spending time throughout Pennsylvania, he moved to Oakland, CA where his career began to take off while working as the resident DJ at the legendary nightspot Mingle’s Champagne and Martini Lounge in Jack London Square. From Oakland, he headed to Japan and spent a year DJing all over the country alongside the PARTYKINGS crew (DJs Taquia, Machivari, & Toshi). When he returned to the United States, he settled in Tallahassee, FL and has been DJing throughout Florida as well as in the Carolinas, Baltimore, New York, Philadelphia, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and his hometown of Washington, DC. In November of 2005, he and DJs Sven and Set started RHT entertainment, later renamed RHT United, and in March of 2006 they launched, which later morphed into, a promotional tool and online store for the Rough House Tactics crew, a multi-genred and multiregional family of musicians and artists dedicated to throwing events and sharing art without the help of the pre-existing and problematic system of major record/distribution labels, radio play monopolies, and traditional music video outlet politics.
