As a DJ/Turntablist for almost 20 years DJ HALO's love of diverse styles of music, Hip-Hop to House, Punk to Country, Top 40 to Underground, has made him one of the most unique performers with his creation of new music on the spot with just two turntables. This uncanny ability to run a gamut of musical styles seamlessly in one set helped him to hold many residencies in the NYC area, tour the US and world over multiple times and in Oakland, CA where he lived for the past 5 years and managed worldwide independent hip-hop label Fake Four Inc.
Halo currently is hard at work on his debut instrumental Ep "Still Life with Teapot" which will be out in the Fall. He currently holds a monthly radio show broadcasting out of London, UK on Back2BackFM.net along with competing in Bay Area regional DMC finals the last 3 years. This will be the 5th time Halo has been asked to perform at SXSW.
