Years Pro: 14 Age: 33 Real Name: Aaron Parent Home: Manchester, NH
A seasoned veteran DJ and producer hailing from Manchester, NH.
Aaron Parent came onto the local music scene in 2001 as DJ VICIOUS and was directly represented by legendary New England Rave crew, Netwerkone Productions where he plated his roots and was given the opportunity to play with some of the nations most legendary EDM icons like Bad Boy Bill, Ireene, Craze, Donald Glaude, Louie Devito, Richard Humpty Vission, DJ Hardware, Carles Feelgood, and many more as well as well known venues like THE ROXY, THE PALACE, Club Axis, Avalon Ballroom, House of Blues, and a long list of others. Vicious, through his formative years had always had a deep passion for music in all forms, which is where he gets his signature varietal and unique mixing style, which during a live set can at times take the listener all over the map but still retains an heir of control and flow that gives DJ Vicious the reputation of one of the best that the New England underground has to offer.
Since his inception, Vicious has formed 2 different side projects that in some ways describe the many different aspects of his own personality.
The first born of these is "GRIND SYNDICATE" which has had great success in the Northeast Festival Scene and in the New England local and underground Nightlife Scene, which has allowed them to play at some of the most well known festival events and small venues all over the New England as well as some distant love from other east coast states.
The second and newest of his projects, known as GHOSTCODE, is a complex format in which Vicious not only mixes and arranges the tracklist but also utilizes a heavy duty commercial visual program known as Resolume to manipulate video in real time to create a visual ensemble that parallels a message and the emotions that are conveyed in the set.
All of this is controlled through a massive stage setup composed of 3 custom mapped MIDI keystations, 2 APC20 Midi control surfaces, 1 APC40 Midi control surface, and 1 Novation Twitch DJ Performance conrtoler. The visual delivery package consists of multiple projectors all run in sequence to create massive images and huge screens that allow for the maestro to step back into the shadows and allow the experience to be the focal point of the show. All this along with a host of computers to control it all, Vicious has clearly made it his mission to exist outside the realm of the average DJ and instead makes him likely to be the most versatile, tech-savvy, and knowledgeable performer that is active right now in the local circut.
Vicious has also made a name for himself as a Operations Management specialist that serves the needs of some of the biggest and most powerful venue owners in the local nightlife community which through his many successes as such has given him the respect of his peers and employers and he is "The person that you call for literally anything, and have a near positive rate of success." Weather it be restaurant service, VIP Services, Event Coordination and Development, bartending, etc., this man does it all, there is no job that he will turn down if he can do it, and he does.
Keep your eye on Aaron Parent aka DJ Vicious, the moment someone discovers him and sees what he can accomplish, there is no doubt that he will go to the top.
Vicious is a self-employed artist represented through his Entertainment company, "3AM PRODUCTIONS" located in Manchester, NH.
He is also a producer on "Tight Groove Recordings" out of NH and has over 30 unreleased tracks in his catalog as well as many recorded mixes spanning almost every sub-genre.
Vicious is represented in the music industry by a small agency in Maine called Quantum Artist Management, on which there are less than 10 other artist alongside him.
