About

DJ SKY has been translating his musical interests and moods through the turntables since '93, proving to be a strong provider, promoter and representative of the Atlanta hiphop/DJ scene. Throughout these years, he has built a name DJing with live bands, groups and artists as a scratch turntablist, to college radio residencies and party rockin' in clubs, bars, private parties and festivals, including Atlanta's own A3C and Breaklanta series.

From 1999 - 2010 he was heard on WRAS 88.5FM's "Hush, Hush" show every first Wednesday of the month from 8-10PM mixing and scratching the best in down-tempo, hiphop & trip-hop instrumentals. He is also known for this style used in MC battles, freestyle sessions and breakdance shows since day one! SKY released his first solo single entitled, "Depths of My Soul" in early 2000 on a compilation from Elemental Magazine, "The Track Less Traveled". And in 2004, he released his second solo single entitled, "SKY vs. MS" for the 2nd Annual MS Benefit Compilation featuring many of ATL's greatest underground hiphop acts!

DJ SKY proudly represents ATLANTA, Zone 7 artists, NodFactor2, Second Sight Productions, and was a member of Atlanta's group of turntable hustlers, Tastemaker DeeJays. Through years of live shows, SKY has performed with a long list of artists and groups. Claiming as his most meaningful to date, was opening for his long time inspiration since day one, Japan's own DJ Krush. Starting DJing in '93 as a great fan and a decade later opening up for Krush at Atlanta's Eleven50, was a true sign to SKY that hard work, patience and passion truly does lead to rewarding progress!

SKY enjoys sharing his time and talents with the next generation as he has been a guest speaker in grade schools ranging from Elementary to High where he has taught and demonstrated what it is to be a hip hop DJ. A notable moment was DJing along side of Atlanta Hawks Harry the Hawk, Cartoon Network, CNN and the Guinness Book of World Records at Benteen Elementary where a world record was set for the most kids participating in the game "4 Square" at the same time!

SKY can be heard mixing everything from hip hop, dubstep, house, retro '80s, classic rock, soul, funk, top 40 to any decade or genre rockin' for all age ranges! He is even known to drop in reminiscent memories such as classic television theme songs, movie soundtrack classics and even children's story book records! With all ranges of genres, eras and styles as a DJ, his turntable roots stem from that of the "True School Hip Hop Era". In 2009, he picked up the position of resident DJ in JEFFREY Atlanta(a high end women's shoes and clothing boutique at Phipps Plaza in Atlanta) where he resided for 3 years as a payroll DJ with full benefits which is practically unheard of in the DJ community! SKY has been privileged to hold residencies and positions, rocking for thousands at some of ATL's largest night clubs, show venues and bars, to NYE events, to being a "Celebrity Guest DJ" on the Norwegian Cruise Line "Norwegian Sky" in the Bahamas! He has held residency at Atlanta's legendary Smith's Olde Bar every Friday and Saturday since 2008.

SKY has been introduced as one of the 7 instructors for the all new Scratch DJ Academy Atlanta location beginning classes on March 15th 2014 where he is extremely excited to take his 20+yrs of DJing to a whole new level! Just watch!
