DJ Affect got his first gig at the young age of 15 after standing outside Club Cream begging, as he often did, for a chance to get a set. One night, the owner, in a bind after a DJ failed to show, grabbed Affect and let him spin for an hour…AND HE KILLED IT! From then on, Affect was hailed on the club circuit as the “DJ prodigy” and, while working around his sophomore high school schedule, landed his first residency on Friday nights at the height of one of South Beach’s premiere clubs. As the “hot” clubs in South Beach came and went, one thing remained the same…Affect was spinning. Known for mixing and mashing unsuspecting genres and ultimately rocking every crowd he touched, Affect earned the respect of club owners, promoters and partygoers, making himself a permanent fixture in the Miami nightlife and landing him gigs in Vegas, New York, Austin, Los Angeles, and abroad. Affect also performed with icons such as the late Notorious B.I.G., Big Pun, Diddy, Mobb Deep, DJ Clue and Funkmaster Flex and appeared on shows such as BET’s Rap City and The Basement. He recently co-produced the Pitbull record “Pause” which has become an Internet smash thanks in part to the fitness craze, Zumba, and will debut as an official single later this year. Needless to say, Affect has become one of the most sought after talents in both urban and open format clubs and parties. He also takes over the airwaves on Friday nights on Y100 (9pm-10pm) and is the newest member to the 99Jamz family.
MIAMI RESIDENCIES: The list of venues in Miami where Affect has NOT spun is much shorter than where he has. Over the years, Affect has kept the crowds pumped into the early morning at all of the hottest clubs including Prive, Opium, The Forge, Liv, HedKandi, Karu & Y, The Fifth, and Set, just to name a few. He currently has residencies at Mokai (Mondays), Cameo (Tuesdays and Saturdays) and Mansion (Thursdays and Fridays).
SPECIAL EVENTS/PRIVATE BOOKINGS: Affect was tapped as the official DJ by countless celebrities for their private parties including: Keri Hilson, Jaime Foxx, Chris Brown, Rihanna, Nelly, The Dream, Drake, Fabolous, and Ludacris, to name just a few. He also spun at the New Orlean’s Saints Superbowl afterparty as well as several other high profile parties surrounding this year’s Superbowl and Grammy Awards.
