R.J. Barron (stage name, Whodafux?!) is a Fidget DJ/Producer from Denver Colorado. Since his first year as a DJ he has played a hand full of venues in the Denver Metro area including Cervantes, Quixotes, Owsleys, The Atzlan, miniBar, and Diamond After Dark. He also performed at shows featuring various local DJ's including Jon Sidberry, Soulshocker, DT Tactics, Cognition, Blingfaced, and Trajikk.
He began his journey as an electronic dance music (EDM) performer early in 2008 when he began mixing tracks with Boulder DJ/Producer Filthy Disco in the sessions they coined “Mix ’n’ Matching.” Through this he developed his endless addiction to exclusive and unheard of music causing him to spend countless hours online networking with other major and underground producers alike for the best of their promotional and unreleased content which eventually lead him to the “Fidget” genre; a term used to describe the jackin’ and wobbly bouncing sound of the music.
He’s also known to play electro, minimal/tech, break beat house, indie/nu disco, funk, hip-hop, and dub.
Shortly after purchasing his own tables, he felt DJing simply wasn’t enough to classify himself as a performer so he acquired a copy of Ableton Live 7 and began to go to work finding new samples and sounds for his library. He would later join the Potty Mouth Music forums where he came in contact with many of the industry’s top fidget producers such as James Amato, Aniki, Slade Templeton (Defunct!), Santiago & Bushido, Mightyfools, and many many more, gaining professional insight on his productions and audio engineering.
He was signed to EMP Audio early in 2010 and has since established his own company Got Bass Entertainment which hosts various events around Colorado. He's also begun collaborating with many local producers such as DJ Audius (Velcro City Records) and Electro Bliss (EMP Audio) to diversify his sound and learn from some of the best Colorado has to offer.
