Colin’s musical journey began early in life – as a toddler, he grooved to his parents’ funk and soul records & as a teenager, he enjoyed the golden era of hip hop through his sisters’ boom box. By college, Colin was well-versed in a variety of musical genres, and he quickly became dissatisfied with what he heard on the radio.
Tired of listening to him complain about the quality of radio DJs on every car ride, Colin’s sister dared him to do better at an upcoming party she was throwing. Never backing down from challenges, Colin quickly learned DJing basics and performed his challenge with flying colors. Realizing his newfound talent, Colin practiced relentlessly and continued his training on both vinyl turntables & digital controllers. Diligently working on his craft and rocking crowds at school functions and local venues, Colin soon earned the spot of resident DJ at GPSCY in New Haven.
After graduating from Yale in 2010 with a B.A. in Political Science, Colin moved to the NYC area and expanded his horizon playing a wide variety of settings requiring a wide selection of music. He has spun top 40 & hip hop at corporate/non-profit events, EDM at clubs, and bhangra at Indian fusion parties. And as a NYC wedding DJ, Colin has played everything under the sun at weddings (often with Chief Remixologist DJ Taiga). Drawing from the diverse musical knowledge from his childhood to his experiences in New Haven & the Big Apple, Colin has acquired the versatility essential to playing to any crowd at any time.
