Bio

Born in Denver, Colorado in the northeast neighborhood of Park Hill on May 3rd 1974, DJ Whizlam has always had music in his life. DJ Whizlam was raised on the sounds of the 70's greats like Zapp featuring Roger Troutman, Maze, Bob James, Cameo, Earth Wind & Fire, Parliament-Funkadelic and others. Already a fan of "tha funk", young Whizlam's musical world was turned upside down in 1978 when he saw the rock band KISS on television for the first time.

From that moment on, KISS served as Whizlam's primary inspirational influence. A natural born DJ/Producer, young Whizlam would spin records at parties that his mother would hold almost every weekend. He reveled in the ability to make people change their moods by the music he would play, and also how he had the whole party under his command.

This love for being the sound party provider reached its climax in the winter of 1979 when Whizlam heard the hip hop classic "Rapper's Delight" for the very first time. From that day forward, Whizlam would spend the next 6 years learning more about the culture of Hip Hop. Whizlam cites "Leader of The Pack" by UTFO as the deciding factor in him choosing the turntables as opposed to the microphone.

He saw the DJ as the most important element in Hip Hop just as the founding forefathers intended. Other major DJ influences include; Mixmaster Ice, Grandmaster Flash, Terminator X, DJ Jazzy Jeff, DJ Magic Mike, DJ Sugar Shaft & DJ Quik. After his middle school years, Whizlam moved from Park Hill to the area of Montbello. During high school, Whizlam made a name for himself spinning at house parties all around Denver.

It was around this time where Whizlam took the leap from DJ to producer. It is from the diverse list of geniuses listed above that helped mold Whizlam's unique production style and sound. Over the past few years, DJ Whizlam has quickly become one of the most sought after producers from Denver ever. Whizlam has worked with many of Denver's hottest up and coming acts and his credits include:

"The Unexpected"- Blindcyde 2003
"6 Eleven 7 Five"- Slimbo 2003,
Mr. Goove (rap artist from Texas)2002
and many other local Hip Hop and R&B artists.

DJ Whizlam wants to continue building a solid track record for himself and staying true to the sounds of the streets, not just in Denver but worldwide.
