California born DJ/Remixer RJ Hernandez, aka Darker Daze has been rocking Dance Floors from San Francisco to Las Vegas and beyond for over 15 years. Daze’s diverse taste in music growing up is the foundation for his mixing style. HipHop, Rock, House Music, and more are all genres that fit seamlessly in his DJ sets. His high energy presence and ability to read and control a crowd makes his performances a must see.
Daze’s career started in the San Francisco Underground House Music scene in the late 90’s. Gaining notoriety quickly for his “dark and dubby” music selection, he was given the name “Darker Daze” by his peers and fans in the underground scene. The name stuck. In 2007, Daze made the switch from Undergrounds into the Mainstream spotlight and quickly rose to the top of San Francisco Bay Area's Nightclub Industry.
Now based out of Las Vegas, Darker Daze has established himself as one of the West Coast's most sought after and busiest DJ’s. Holding multiple residencies from Vegas to the Bay and logging over 250 shows a year, you can catch him headlining some of the biggest nightclubs in the states and playing alongside some of the biggest acts in the world.
