DJ Handle: DJ FLASH
Origin of handle: When I ran track in high school, I was so fast friends called me Flash and the name stayed with me because I was so fast on the turntables.
Full name: Rodney Kenan
What I play: Hip hop, R&B, reggae, go-go, Baltimore house and reggaeton
Catch me at: Mondays at Club Menage, some Thursdays at Club Rumba, some Fridays at Club Spotlite and some Saturdays at Lounge 2800.
Got in the game: At the tender age of 14.
Why I do it: I used to carry crates for my uncle who was a professional DJ. I used to watch him closely and enjoyed the way he drove the party. Listening to him and other great DJs gave me the desire to become one too.
Influences: My biggest influence was Jazzy Jeff. I would go to Philly every summer as a youngster to all the underground parties listen and learn from Jazzy Jeff. Also, Cash Money, Lightning Rich, Grand Wizard Rashin, Tat Money and Cosmic Kev.
