- New York, NY
Art Blakey III was born in NYC into a family full of music, influenced as much by the gigs his Father and Grandfather would play at Jazz clubs and concerts as he was by the diverse musical culture that the greatest city in the world had to offer. After spending years training in piano, trumpet, and voice, his interest in DJing was piqued by the block parties in his Manhattan Valley neighborhood. It was not until he was struck by the lightning bolt that is Drum & Bass that he vowed to actually become a DJ, if only to be a messenger as his forefathers had been before him, spreading the music to all who would listen.
Thanks to Camouflage’s Christian Bruna and Tommy Etzi, Art was able to step forth and play out in the New York Drum n' Bass scene and has been able to DJ with the likes of Raw Q, DJ Paul C, Odi, Dara, Mousky, TankTop NYC and Micah Chockley as well as Total Science, Sub Focus, The Insiders, R.A.W. and Wavewhore. Art now goes forth, bringing Drum & Bass from the Creator, to the decks, to you.MC JAMALSKI
