DJ Tantra

the DJ's DJ

Joie de vivre! A NYC born pioneer artist, DJ, producer and manager, dj tantra aka #YourDJnSavior was a cutting and backspinning as an early teen in the 80's. Tantra was blending lovely acapellas with various world genres of dubs and instrumentals (Queens Style), a decade before the term "mashup" was coined or in vogue. Later in life he would manage artists (Teddy Pendergrass Estate, Jean Carne and Dannis Winston) and serve as an executive producer.

A skilled turntablist, crowds are amazed when they see tantra spin and play using vinyl records! Blending and mixing classics of any genre with yesterday's or today's hits. He spins Bhangra or Country with breakbeats, Reggaeton or Dancehall with dubstep and Rock or Metal with Drum & Bass. However, his spirit lies and is clearly expressed in "Four on the floor." Tantra is a devout House head and Jazz aficionado.

Tantra, the "Underground House Conductor" where deep house is truly his lane. He has a deep interest and penchant for World music. As a human that has travelled to more than 50 countries, tantra is compelled to relate, mix and play for everyone and any genre. Mixes are branches that connect with billions of humans so he prefers to craft them using French, Spanish, Hindu, Swahili, Russian and of course English. Often mixing vocals of languages that he cannot even comprehend, yet he fully understands their spirit, rhythm and keys. Then proceeds to exert and mix, #killingit via smooth tempos and/or infectious beats.

Tantra has been known to be "the DJ's DJ," grateful to add his diverse style to any bill. He remixes tracks on the fly or in the lab. From DC to Dubai, Philly to Paris, Rio to Rome, Tel Aviv to Toronto or LA to NY, he been appearing at the Music Festivals and Conferences for over a decade. A Winter Music Conference veteran, playing Miami's top hotels, clubs, lounges including Opium Garden, The Shore Club, Nikki Beach, Body Slag, 357, Love & Hate and Sobe Live. The ultimate crowd reader, DJ Tantra's smooth mixing style is embraced in any setting around the world.

There is a much larger tantric discipline that deals with allowing all feelings to be met with equal acceptance, and for each person to become deeply sensitive to what they are feeling. Subsequently, they are then able to feel others and their needs this mindfulness is his approach to life, and keenly applicable to how he makes and plays music.

Based in Washington DC, home to nearly every country's embassy, he is available for bookings worldwide. Contact get@djtantra.com or 202-238-9011.
