Raised in New York and from a Hispanic background DJ Finyl Faze grew up with a diverse world of music around him. From the gritty hard rap of Wu-Tang to the danceable salsa of Celia Cruz. He wasn’t introduced to djing until late in his life at the age of 22 by the Turntable Assassin DJ Kutcase. With his help and honest mentoring DJ Finyl Faze began honing his skills on the technics, and slowly started booking local parties and local clubs in the long island area. But just playing music for a crowd wasn’t enough for him, realizing that he is in an era of djing and in NY where the competition is strong he decided that he needed to stand out amongst the rest. He began to study DMC videos from World and US Champions and slowly started learning the difficult art of scratching and turntablism, with which he now uses those skills to take his art to the next level and stand out from the rest of the competition. With the hard work and dedication he has put in his art form he has caught the attention of various veteran DJs in NYC he looked up to when he first touched 1200s such as DJ Degree, DJ Finesse, DJ Cre-8 and DJ Spanky.
With guidance from his mentors and only a few years under his belt DJ Finyl Faze has had the opportunity to spin at various clubs in NYC such as Taj II, Hiro Ballroom, Amnesia NYC, Soiree and LQs just to name a few. He has also landed a corporate gig djing at a Coors Light sponsored event. Aside from clubs DJ Finyl Faze also does a weekly web radio show Crooked Radio on www.LatinLoungeRadio.com where he gets on avg 75+ viewers weekly. This is only the start of his career and with his obsessive desire to learn and stay productive he has a successful future ahead of him.
“I don’t want to be just another DJ, which is why I work hard and set my goals extremely high, so that one day I can be recognized and respected amongst the best”
