Biography

DJ PRIEST (born Brian DePristo,1976), is a Maryland-born electronic and hip hop musician whose work is often called "breakbeat" or "trip hop". He is a dj and producer that has toured the East Coast crossing electronic sounds and sampled beats with live musicians.

Touring with bands lead to Brian's remix of Drum and Cello that has sold thousands and received FM radio play. His original, Ghettotech, reached #1 on American Idol Undeground only after being on the chart for 5 weeks.

PRIEST has been featured on multiple compilations along side artists like Kraftwerk, Junkie XL, The Chemical Brothers, Dave Gahan (Depeche Mode), and Treach (Naughty by Nature).

In the late 90's, Brian could often be found, with a trunk full of underground mix cd's, on the road playing clubs, festivals, battling dj's, winning competitions, and gaining international recognition.
This lead to a performance at a very influential U.S. electronic music festival Ultraworld.

Recently, DJ PRIEST has been playing to packed venues while performing with popular artists such as Dj Craze, Bonnie X Clyde, TC Islam, Sam Sparro, Quiet Riot, Adam F, Dj Fresh, and Dj Icey.

Lyrics

Drum + Cello (Brian DePristo RMX)

Written By: Remix: Written by Brian DePristo and Jeffrey Chad Palmer

Drum + Cello as performed by Ultrastar* Lyrics:

You always wanted what was yours, and yours alone
But what about me?

The trouble with you [is] The trouble with me too
And when I'm with you
I hear Miles play all blues , play all blues

The time may come when we will find ourselves alone
But for now...

The trouble with you [is] The trouble with me too
And when I'm with you
I hear Miles play all blues , play all blues

You always wanted what was yours, and yours alone
But what about me?

The trouble with you [is] The trouble with me too
And when I'm with you
I hear Miles play all blues , play all blues
