It all started back when the 1990s big hair bands ruled the airwaves and MTV was actually showing music videos; Hip hop and house music was still relatively underground and DJs weren't yet considered rock stars. This is when Nomad was out searching far and wide for a pair of turntables and a mixer to get himself started amongst some of the soon-to-be hottest DJs in a most competitive market - NYC.
While sneaking into the hottest clubs in NYC, Nomad witnessed some of the biggest name DJs rocking spots before they were known across the world. Nomad spent his time studying the newest techniques, searching for the hottest records, and enjoying the phenomenon starting around him. He linked up with Scotty Marz, during the boom of the North East rave scene, and soon became part of the KingSize Crew. At the time, KingSize was most known for their flavor” parties and Westchester’s hottest after-hours spot - Bounce. Bounce brought in top DJs, including: Dimitri from Dee-lite, Justin Johnson, Kelly Reverb, Micro, and Crystal Method, and Nomad was there to witness it all.
Then in 1996 while Nomad was still working with the KingSize Crew, he met a new business partner - the up-and-coming super promoter - Lenny Venice. These two teamed up and threw countless parties throughout Westchester, New York City and Connecticut, but became most famous for the White Plains club - Emanon. Thousands gathered each week to hear the top names that Emanon brought in, including: Amber, TKA, Pink, Deborah Cox, Sugar Hill Gang and many more.
With a successful event throwing background, along with his amazing DJ skills, Nomad started to get booked at many other elite NYC clubs, including: Limelight, Tunnel, and Sound Factory, where he landed a 7 year long residency. The legendary Sound Factory allowed Nomad to be creative and experiment with different types of music while playing to thousands every weekend. His following continued to grow with each event, and soon major corporations realized the impact that a DJs would have within their events. Nomad was booked for parties by Tommy Hilfiger, Hustler Magazine, Armani Exhange Vibe Style Shows, BET, CBS TV, and NBC TV. Nomad was seen on the Area 2 tour with David Bowie, Moby, Busta Rhymes, Tiesto, Carl Cox, John Digweed and many more.
Nomad then joined Satellite Records, where he worked next to many DJs and producers. Here, he met his production partner Quentin Harris. These two produced many hot tribal beats and vocals. Shortly after their music was heard, NoQue Recordings was established.
In 1996, Nomad put another spin on his career when he established Second Generation, LLC. This company installed and maintains lighting in many major nightclubs around the tri-state area, some including: Sound Factory, Shelter, and Cielo. Second Generation has since flourished into one of New York City’s top lighting companies.
You can catch Nomad rocking beats in a major night club or lounge, or break dancing until the wee hours in the morning. Nomad also enjoys snowboarding, surfing or skating the mean street of New York City. Nomad lives his life to the fullest every day, and as he says: “You can sleep when your dead!”
