About

With over ten years DJ’ing, DJ Impulse has achieved more than most in his field. From the age of 5, music, and specifically the rhythm of music took a hold of Impulse and he started playing the drums. His love for the beat drew him to Hip Hop early on and it didn’t take long before he began to take notice of the man behind the beat, the DJ. Watching Yo! MTV RAPS, Impulse saw Jam Master Jay, Kid Capri and Jazzy Jeff and knew that he wanted to be a part of what they were doing. At age 14 he asked for turntables and he began his journey as a DJ himself. He started DJ’ing house parties and did his first club gig before he was old enough to legally get in the door. After that it was a steady journey as he did parties and concerts at an alarming rate. He’s opened for and DJ’d with numerous artists including Mos Def, Talib Kweli, Wu Tang Clan, Common, Lupe Fiasco, 50 Cent, Juvenile, DJ Qbert, DJ Craze, Funkmaster Flex, Rakim, Nappy Roots, De La Soul, Q Tip, T Pain, Mims, Rev Run(Run DMC), Pete Rock, Ludacris, Flava Flav, Cam’ron, and Kia Shine, to name a few. His proficiency for rocking parties speaks for itself and many times his reputation for doing so has been the fuel for his fire, securing him gig after gig. Currently working with Scratch Academy out of New York City, Impulse has been at the helm, commanding parties for corporate sponsors from Red Bull and Scion to Bloomingdale’s and Saks Fifth Avenue. Never one to be pigeon holed, he has a chameleon like quality with his sets and a knowledge of many forms of music allowing him to know what record to drop when. He has done sets ranging from 70′s and 80′s classics to mash up parties with rock and rap, to funk and R&B, to rock and alternative, to his home town’s native music, Baltimore Club, and of course Hip Hop. You name it, he can play it, and he can make it blend perfectly. As he looks to the future Impulse isn’t content. He wants to do bigger parties, play at even more over the top events and continue to network with the worlds top artists as he makes his mark on the DJ culture.
