Orlando, United States
Musically influenced by the early Hip-Hop pioneers and the innovative sounds of Michael Jackson, Prince and James Brown, at the early age of 5 Infa-Red fell in love with many genres of music, particularly Hip Hop. Originally from Brockton, Massachusetts, Infa-Red learned to DJ in Brooklyn, New York when he was 14 years of age where he spent his summers with family. Not necessarily wanting to breakdance or rap, his affection for Hip Hop and listening to the genius of Jam Master Jay, DJ Scratch, and Kid Capri was his driving force to learn. After he heard the likes of radio DJ pioneers such as Red Alert and Funk Flex and DjEnuff on the radio, he knew he wanted to dedicate 110% into the art of DJ’ing as his career.
Infa-Red made the move to Orlando, Florida in 2001 and began playing small parties in 2003. By 2006, he had consistent weekly bookings and playing in the clubs a minimum of three nights a week. In 2007, Infa-Red was selected to do an internship with Power 95.3 and was named as the official concert DJ for all of their sponsored events. In 2010, he was added as a full-time DJ for their mix show and is officially part of the Power 95.3 family.
Infa-Red has played in several major markets including NYC, Boston, Miami, New Jersey, and Rhode Island and L.A. He was an honorary guest at the 2009 BET Hip Hop Awards in Atlanta. He has played at shows for Nicky Ramero, Fabolous, 50 Cent, Dirty South, Ne-Yo, Jadakiss, Styles P, The Lox, Fat Joe, Allen Iverson, Pitbull,Trina, Madcon, Ace Hood, DJ Khaled, Ray J, T.I., Green Lantern, Biz Markie, DJ Enuff, DJ Camilo, Dirty South, De La Ghetto, Speedy, Joel y Randy, Jazmine Sullivan, Kevin Cossom, Joe Budden, Joell Ortiz, Yung Berg, YC, 2 Pistols, Baby Bash and many more.
