He has now been a Resident Artist at fig media for close to four years and over 350 events, 101 of them just last year. Ranging from small neighborhood bar, the Sovereign to downtown bar Rockit Bar and Grill. His more memorable moments have been audio setups at four different events for Mayor Daley, three years at Old St Pat's, World's Largest Block Party and most recently working with fig Resident Artist Megan Taylor at the opening for the Trump Towers and fig Artist Resident Jonathan Hood at the House of Blues for ZZ Top.
Erik is the Blue-Collar DJ, working 80 to 100 gigs a year and still training behind the scenes to keep his edge. He is a part of the training team that brought the fig DJ crew from 5-6 DJ's to a consistant 11 DJ's for the past two years. Erik is proud of his events and the systems he has built to create a strong, creative DJ team.
