Biography

NORdjs is best described as friends who wanted a way to spend time together. When starting out, we didn't imagine ourselves residents in Chicago's hot nightclubs, producing music, or meeting, let alone warming the floor up for, some of the world's most incredible talent. In the beginning, we just wanted to play some music and hang with friends.

It started in 2003, when as four friends, Kibo, Phatt Ivan, Tima Fei and Tom Bang, we started a Sunday night at Sphinx nightclub. Soon enough, the event got huge! In 2006, we took in M. Sylvia. Tom changed his involvement to start concentrating on other projects, but never left us - if you ever look at our awesome website or some of our other graphic work, it's him. With those changes, the group as known today became complete.

Our world from there on out was a hurricane we never expected to hit us. We started playing at Sound-bar, where we had the true pleasure of seeing what the DJ experience is like through ourselves, and through what we learned from other world-class talent. Bookings poured in for other events, arenas, out-of-state and international venues... During much of the past few years, our understanding of music increased, and so came our next step: music production.

The hurricane is still spinning. Each day brings amazing new experiences, opportunities and blessings. We never expected NORdjs to get where it did, and be as big a part of our lives as it is.

We often get asked about what's next.

The survival and success of NOR is due to each of us being different. Each person has different ideas, aspirations, and a different way of creating - it's a blend of friendship, love of music, business sense, spontaneity and pragmatic thinking. We're proud to announce those dynamics have taken us where we never expected to go. NOR has become an unstoppable train, and we have no idea where it's going. We hope you hop aboard, and enjoy the ride with us.
