DJ Benz; Turntable Specialist(gov; name Rob Caimitte) was born and raised in Brooklyn NY and is a first-generation Haitian-American. This is where he grew up and he still has family here to this day, therefore Flatbush, Brooklyn will always be his first home. He moved to Philadelphia before his 16th birthday and ended up going away to college at the age of 17. In college is when the vinyl bug bit him. He got tired of the campus parties with the same routine so he started doing house parties and begin doing college radio shows, like BloomRadio in Bloomsburg University. DJ Benz joined the Future Star DJs in November 2007. The Future Star DJ’s gave Benz the real tools to network and they have remained loyal to him in every venture that he does. He has finished college with an Associate’s Degree in Business Administration. After earning his degree he decided to dedicate more time to his passion of DJing full-time. Benz has since shifted to high speed from breaking out exclusives, to top artists and labels, networking with legends like Wyclef and meeting Naughty By Nature, to spinning at multiple stations. He basically covered almost every department of the Turntable. There are times he still considers himself a rookie or a sophmore to the DJ game because he still has a lot to learn. But with his eyes set on the peak of the mountain, He will get there in no time.
As of today, it is very hard NOT to find him. He is part of Gametime Entertainment, led by a very known DJ/Actor, DJ Spontane. He is a Future Star DJ, a Coast 2 Coast DJs and the newly-founded Warrior DJs, founded by Wyclef Jean. In 2010 he also joined the 704 DJs network. In a few short years, he went from dropping exclusives from Wyclef, Fatman Scoop, etc, to rocking out venues around Philly such as LOVE Park, to smashing the airwaves on the 704 DJ syndicated network as well as the Warrior Mixshow. You can find DJ Benz at countless radio stations across the country, surrounded by vinyl assassins. He also has other club dates throughout the week. DJ Benz believes in going hard for his crew, his family, Brooklyn, Philly and definitely for Haiti!
His question to you is Can u ride with the Benz? He is passionate about his craft as well as learning more, all while driving his way to the top. As far as the undecided and nay-sayers, just Get with it or Get Lost.
He will NOT Disappoint your ears.
