Triad DJ Profile
Stage name: DJ Rob Reeves. “It was given to me at birth. I was very young at the time of my birth, so I really didn’t have a choice.”
Website: www.myspace.com/djrobreeves, www.myspace.com/spindicated06
Playlist: “I love all types of music, but I prefer to play electro and progressive house with a twist of breakbeat.
Equipment: Two Pioneer CDJ 1000’s, Pioneer DJM 800 mixer and two Mackie monitors.
Catch me at: In Charlotte: Wednesdays at Tutto Mondo, Thursdays at the Sunset Club, parties at the Forum on Thursdays.), Saturdays and Sundays at KISS (kisscharlotte.com). “I also play clubs out of town when I can break free from my schedule.”
Upcoming shows: Jan. 31 at KISS with DJ Dan, Feb. 12 at the Forum with Benny Benassi, Feb. 28 at KISS with Baby Anne.
Got in the game: “I decided to become a DJ when I was about 22. I guess that was about 10 years ago.”
First pro gig: “I was living in Florida and was booked to play in Blacksburg, Va. at a club called the Warehouse. It was the first of many road trips with Spindicated. In fact, this booking led me to my next gig in Tennessee for a party thrown inside a Mountain Cave! Those were the days….” Why I do it: “I really enjoyed the dance scene in Florida in the late ’90s and I was drawn into the music quickly. I thought that dancing was the best part, until I realized that providing the vibe was even better. I bought my first set of techniques and lived in my bedroom for a good year and a half, before I finally decided to start playing out and here I am now.”
Influences: “I have so many influences as a DJ, so I will just name a few from the electronic side. Rick Solo with Spindicated Music, Fuzz, Sasha and Digweed, Paul Van Dyk, Rabbit in the Moon, BT, Icey, DJ X, Crystal Method, Chemical Brothers, Prodigy, Jeffe, Tiesto, Monk, DJ Rap, Scott Henry and many more.”
Favorite technique: I love the spinback! It is one of the easiest techniques, but also one of the most effective.
What I listen to: “I pretty much devote all of my spare time to searching for the latest and greatest tracks online, so I would have to say electro house and breaks.”
Favorite albums: Boston Bruins — I Will Be Free, BT — Godspeed
I’d like to add: “My affiliates are Spindicated Music, Elite Management, Reddoor Entertainment and King of Clubs.”
