My Bio

DJ Versatile "The Riddim Driver" is known for his unique remixes on the fly, blending different genres together to create a sound that is unique and his own. His fans often refer to him as the "One man riddim band" that get iron band members tired from beating iron all night with his non stop mixes and smooth transitions. His passion for Djing began in the mid stages of his life but his love for all types of music began in his early childhood days growing up in Morvant Laventille Trinidad. "I remember listening to old A-Track tapes and vinyl records with my dad every Saturday morning while I did my chores". "I grew up listening to calypso artist like the Mighty Sparrow, Lord Kitchener, Merchant and Baron to name a few and Dj's like King Papa Rocky and Chinese Laundry". "However, I also listened to Casey Kasem for all the top 40 American hits on TV, freestyle house and dance music was my favorite and still is to this day." After he finished primary school in Trinidad, his parents decided to move to Brooklyn, NY in pursuit of the American dream at the age of 10. "It was rough at first with the cultural adjustment but I learned to adapt to my new surroundings. After graduating from Erasmus Hall High in 1998, DJ Versatile began his BBA studies at Baruch College CUNY, which is where his passion for djing began. "I became a member of the Caribbean Students Association which held various concerts and shows at the college. "They were looking to hire Dj's within the association but I was not a professional Dj at the time because I was more focused on my studies, but my friends will always push me to sign up because they heard me play at house parties and family gatherings as a hobby and felt I had what it takes". From then on DJ Versatile was showcased in shows alongside artists such as Beenie Man, Mr Vegas, Bounty Killa, Allison Hinds and Square One. Dj Versatile currently presents himself as a fully insured Professional DJ serving the NY tri-state area and abroad. He is also one of the latest members to the Drocradio.com family of Dj's and 2-4-1 Entertainment company. You can listen to DJ Versatile "The Riddim Driver" each and every Saturday from 12pm-3pm for Riddim Overload Saturday's on Drocradio or via the official app (drocradio). "It's all about having fun".
