Biography

As a performer, Z-Trip is revered as one of the best live performance DJs in history, by both fans and peers. It’s no surprise fans voted him “America’s Best DJ” in 2009, beating out over 100 other DJ’s in DJ Times highly acclaimed annual readers poll. His worldwide sold out shows continue to set attendance records while drawing critical praise. “One of the great musical moments from Coachella (2002) was the frenzied set by turntable wizard Z-Trip. He had fans howling and bobbing, closing his set with a surprise appearance by Beck,” wrote the Los Angles Times. It’s a fact that many call him the “godfather of mash-ups”, as he is one of the originators of the genre.

His lengthy career has seen him crisscross the globe numerous times, chalking up rave reviews along the way. He returned to Coachella 2010, for his fourth appearance at the festival headlining the Sahara Tent, where the OC Register noted: “Even against two of the biggest draws on the schedule, Z-Trip raked ‘em in, filling the Sahara with over 15,000 revelers.” His 2009 Detroit Electronic Music Festival performance to over 10,000 stole the festival receiving the lions share of press: “Z-Trip lit up Saturday night, first by jamming with RJD2 then following with a Detroit-saluting mash-up set,” beamed Billboard.

At the vanguard of dance music culture, he is at the heart of the DJ Hero™ video game series. Appearing as an avatar and providing several scorching remixes, Z-Trip’s relentless vision even defied the advanced technology. An 8-bar scratch that he wanted to incorporate into the game was too much for the game’s memory to handle.
