Dj LORD is a key member of the iconic group Public Enemy, a legendary turntablist and a multi-genre Dj. His style is a unique combination of precision cuts, lots of bass and unexpected mixes that keep crowds worldwide rocking.
While growing up in Savannah, GA, LORD was exposed to the 80’s Philly Dj scene by a cousin and set his sights on learning the craft. Heavily influenced by hip-hop Dj pioneers, his own style rapidly developed.
By 1999, LORD’s expertise as a battle Dj as well as an all round performer was noticed by Professor Griff of Public Enemy, who was looking for a new Dj due to Terminator X’s retirement. A month after meeting, LORD was on Public Enemy’s 40th World Tour. Since joining as a permanent member, he’s been an integral part of the group from production to touring. The rest is history.
As a DJ, LORD has done it all. He has performed at all types of world class events from Grammy Awards to legendary festivals such as Coachella and Glastonbury. He has played at the top clubs in USA, Asia, Australia and Europe and has numerous battle titles including U.S. Finalist in I.T.F. and DMC. He has even been called the Bruce Lee of turntables.
LORD is one of the most versatile Djs in the game. No matter the genre, his high-energy shows seamlessly fuse turntablism with impeccable music selection that keep crowds screaming for more.
Having mastered the art of Djing, LORD is now also pursuing his second love, producing. He has produced tracks for Public Enemy and with Dubstep groups TrillBass and HULK—and he’s just getting warm.
LORD is currently touring with 2013 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees, Public Enemy and his solo 2MP album.
