Still working on that hot first release.



Though his journey originally began as a hobby in 2015, Vance B (formerly known as Vance Brinkley) has recently emerged as a prospect among DC's dynamic DJ scene. Known for a mixing style that includes infectious loops, an ear for sound, and surprising turns, Vance built a catalog that showcases his work through Grooveline Radio on the Mixcloud Platform. In 2016, he began DJing professionally at house parties and various bars before catching a break at Layla Lounge later that year. In 2017, his budding relationship with Layla would grow into tremendous opportunities like mixing for Devin The Dude's album listening party, maintaining year-long residencies for Meltdown and Budz and Bass meetups, and opening for great DJs like Choppy Oppy and Alex Noize. In 2018, his mix shows Grooveline Radio made waves in Annapolis with socialite group We Are Conglomerate and local store ArtFarm to host The Kickback, an intimate party that attracted a diverse group of people from the city's local community. In August, he hosted his first live show Grooveline Radio Presents, opening for Farrah Flosscett and Malcolm Xavier with the help of Theory Booking Agency. In December, he once again DJ'd along Farrah Floscett for the H Street House Party at Red Rocks.
Outside of the DJing life, Vance also documents the world of music, sports, race, and politics as a journalist. He wrote for a plethora of music publications including Okay Player, REVOLT, Bandcamp Daily and AllHipHop. Vance also interviewed a slew of artists in the industry including Lupe Fiasco, Schoolboy Q, Big KRIT, KEY!, Sango, Monte Booker, Flamingosis, and many others. He also rocked the sports world as a writer for ESPN's The Undefeated and SB Nation. He recently appeared on PBS as a guest on OZY's limited series Take On America.
