Deeply rooted in hip-hop, folk, and electronic dance music, DJ Equal combines his love for music with his world-class DJing skills, mixing genres and influences from every corner of the world.
Equal relocated from hometown Asheville, North Carolina to New York City in 2004 at age 19 and is now an internationally renown touring artist.
Moving tirelessly between the downtown, cutting edge music and arts scene and the West Side's velvet rope dance club circuit, DJ Equal has developed his eclectic style.
A lifetime drummer, Equal's greatest inspiration is his close knit group of family and friends, and artists and musicians, who often call on each another for collaborative endeavors.
From 2005 - 2009, DJ Equal co-founded the event production and lifestyle marketing company Taste NYC, which produced more than 100 events per year and gave Equal a unique perspective of nightlife.
Being called upon to handle top tier private events, like Sports Illustrated Sportsman of the Year Awards, private parties for Tiesto and Y'ves St Laurent, and numerous Fashion Week events, it's no surprise that he is recognized as one of the few young taste makers on the market.
Currently, Equal can be found spinning weekly in New York City's hottest venues, as well as playing club dates and festivals ranging from Austin's SXSW to Norway's Hove Festival, to New Years Eve on the Sydney Harbor, and underground dance
parties in Tel Aviv. DJ Equal participated in the 2011 Red Bull Thre3style Competition where he won a closely contested 2nd place.
With over 30 Countries stamped in his Passport, Equal has headlined club tours, and shared the stage with artists such as Solange, N.E.R.D, Toubab Krewe, Bag Raiders, Miami Horror, Jadakiss, A-Trak and The Rapture.
