DJ Halo (Before and Between Sets)
Listen to Bronstibock - The Edge (HALO Remix)
Recently relocated to Oakland, CA from his native Connecticut, DJ Halo has been a DJ/Turntablist for about 15+ years. But if asked Halo would consider it 4 years less as he had significant rehabilitation from a serious accident (run over by two cars) at the age of 22 in which his left arm was badly injured and did not return to DJing for about 2 years. He has DJ’d all over the country while touring with MCs; BrokeMC, Domer, The Metermaids, MINDSpray Crew, Haiku, Swordplay, Sketch Tha Cataclysm as well as booking solo DJ tours in the US and Europe. Halo has performed @ SXSW 4x’s and held residencies at Knitting Factory NYC, Supreme Trading BK, Galapagos BK, and Karma NYC.
Much of his earlier work is thematic based mixtapes (Heart & Soul) that are much different from his live show sets, with many posted for FREE download (Juno Tape pts I & II, Mix for Lovers, DJ HALO’S WOMEN in music…).
Halo is very involved in broadcasting holding shows on WPKN 89.5FM, an internet show on RWD.FM and a syndicated podcast through Rapreviews.com. Downloads are available of episodes of podcasts or archived live shows from the Podcasts and Broadcast Show Archive pages on his website http://www.halodoesntsuck.com
Over the past few years Halo has become increasingly obsessed with creating music of his own, more specifically Remixes, but also original instrumental electronic productions. Coupled with his new obsession is a bizarre need to create specific cover art for each production, whether it be a cannibalization of the original art or a totally original piece, so Halo has also become very involved in creating graphic art both digitally and on canvas.
