Nathaniel Valentin was born September 7, 1981 in Detroit, MI to Edwin and Rebeca Valentin. Like many others Nathaniel followed the long journey of musical enlightenment by discovering his talent as a DJ. He began his musical journey at the age of 12 in Orlando, FL where he was obligated to help out with his family’s Radio business. Nathaniel, although obstinate about working with his family instead of playing his favorite game of basketball, soon found himself at age 16 hosting his own music/talk show called “The Afternoon Drive” with co-host Chris “Doc” Donaldson. He continued to DJ at concerts, parties, and youth events. Some of the artist he has opened for at his young age were B.B. Jay, E 40, Kevin Rudolph, Bizzie Bone, Fred Hammond, Gospel Gangstaz, Kirk Franklin, Mike The Situation and The Ambassador. After focusing solely on hip-hop Nathaniel stayed close to his Christian roots during the initial start of his musical career. In 2002, his father decided to close down their radio station. This made Nathaniel decide to put an end to his promising career. Inspired by wife Mary Valentin in 2007, Nathaniel was back in the entertainment business with a new style of music, combining Dance, Electronic, House, Hip Hop, Mash Ups, Country, Modern Rock and Pop. Nathaniel sets himself apart from others by providing a new and improved mix of HHH, Salsa, Merengue, Reggaeton, and different style’s of music from Africa.
