DJ Evil One

In the DJ world, it is important to embrace new technology while still honoring traditional methods of djing. Having started on vinyl, DJs previously learned how to put together the perfect mix and seamlessly blend through endless hours of practice. This type of dedication and persistence created a school of DJs that can successfully program in any situation. Starting off the old fashioned way as a bedroom DJ some twelve years ago, Evil One has carved out a career that sees a minimum of two hundred shows per year. The past five years in particular have seen hundreds of thousands of miles of air travel and packed, sweaty shows from Miami to Toronto to San Francisco. Born and raised in Portland, OR, Evil One built his reputation as a tastemaker in the DJ scene. His impeccable music taste, matched with the ability to rock any type of party and music genre, have set him apart. This level of versatility and talent garnered him press coverage by Forbes and The Oregonian, as well as corporate sponsorship from Macy’s, Scion, Nike, Red Bull, and Adidas, who sponsored his 30-city tour. Recently, Evil One participated as a camp counselor at Camp Spin-Off, the first youth DJ camp. After moving to Los Angeles in mid-2009, Evil One established one of the most successful nights in LA, Twin Tuesday at The Dime, with Steve1der. This weekly classic hip-hop event has hosted guests like Adam 12, DJ Eleven, Spider, Morse Code, and Fashen. When in town, he also regularly spins at AFEX, hosted by Adam 12. Evil One’s permanence in the DJ game is founded on his ability to rock for the masses, with anything from rock to classic hip-hop to indie dance, and leave his imprint on every crowd he encounters. He has mastered the art of working a party into a sweaty, dancing frenzy and knows how to adapt to make sure everyone is having the time of their lives. The original King of Portland has expanded his talents past the great Northwest to hold residencies in such diverse cities as Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle, Portland, Kansas City, Chicago, Milwaukee and Iowa City. With this type of expertise and proven record, Evil One has shown that he is a true classic in the game, only growing better with time.
