I think you know by now of the team i’m part of. GAMETIME, wit DJ Spontane as the Capo and my crazy self, DJ Benz. Benzi Musiq. But to bring back Turntablist Tuesday, I want all of you to know more about the 3rd member, DJ Rashaun.
Known for his versatility in electro, house, and hip hop, the highly renowned DJ and Producer Rashaun Andrews is setting new standards for music across the world. Since returning to deejaying only eight months ago, DJ Rashaun landed a residency at Philadelphia’s 3 G Lounge and guest deejayed numerous events throughout the Tri-State area. He recently broke through the scenes Memorial Day Weekend to perform at Revel, Atlantic City’s newest casino. After Radio One called upon him to play for Beyonce’s VIP BeyHive parties, he became branded as an official BeyHive DJ.
“I just feel like my calling is being a DJ. That’s where I started from,” DJ Rashaun said about his motivation and love of the art form.
This legendary 2010 winner of The Philadelphia iStandard Producer Showcase has placed remixes with Biz Markie, Jada Kiss, MTV’s breakthrough artist, Dacav 5, and electro artist UNI V SOL. DJ Rashaun’s most recent works have made him a continuous hot topic on Twitter and many other social media sites. His series of mix tapes, titled, “Electric Playground,” can be downloaded on www.djrashaun.podomatic.com and www.DJRashaun.com. On Tuesday nights, he’s the radio mixer on Real Talk with Raym at www.wifi1460am.com from 8 to 10 p.m. DJ Rashaun also plays on the same station Thursdays from 10 p.m. to midnight on the Love, Lies, and Confessions Show. DJ Rashaun’s mixes have made such a stir that even KayGee of Naughty by Nature called the station to express a high interest in DJ Rashaun’s talent.
“Shout out to DJ Rashaun and Real Talk with Raym! They go hard on radio,” KayGee said via Twitter.
DJ Rashaun was mentored and brought up through the ranks by Scratch Mechanic’s own DJ Jay Ski. It was through this friendship DJ Rashaun learned the art of scratching and mixing different genres of music.
As a very sought after deejay, DJ Rashaun is preparing for an eventful year with clients, such as, Champion, Vitamin Water, Gametime Ent., and a host of scheduled guest deejay appearances. DJ Rashaun can be contacted at DJRashaun@gmail.com.
