Who is DJ Beauty and the Beatz?
Its not often, if at all, that you are musically mesmerized at a party, rockin’ to your favorite beats and having the time of your life, only to look up and realize that you are “turn’t up” to the tunes of a 13 year old female DJ. Passionate and professional, young DJ Beauty and the Beatz’s turntable prowess has never disappointed her audience. Her style ranges from Hip Hop to pop to top 40’s to various electronic genres. Hypnotized by her sound, poise and mainstream appeal, most are even more fascinated by her story.
Born in Las Vegas, NV, DJ Beauty and the Beatz was exposed to music by her father long before she could even crawl. Riding in the car with him running errands, she realized her own love for beats and lyrics. By six years of age, she began recognizing samples used by different artists and shouting “air” suggestions to the radio DJ to play certain songs together based on their similarities. It was at this point that her mother introduced her to the idea of becoming a DJ herself (when she got older). Young, determined, and ready (now), Beauty and the Beatz convinced her parents to buy her equipment. Unable to afford it at the time, her parents borrowed turntables from friends and skipped out on meals to purchase needles two to three times a week. A first grade reading level proved it challenging to read “How to DJ” books, so six year old DJ Beauty and the Beatz quickly took to YouTube as her instructor and practiced everyday after school in her parent’s garage. By eight years old, she was spinning at schools, boys and girls clubs, and local Vegas teen gatherings.
Ignoring this rare and remarkable talent was not an option. DJ Beauty and the Beatz’s parents packed nothing but clothes into a rental car, left everything in Las Vegas behind, and drove to the East Coast to pursue a career for DJ Beauty and the Beatz as a professional DJ. Within days of her arrival to DC, her skills were recognized and highly requested. She was featured in, critically acclaimed singer and songwriter, Yahzarah’s music video “Cry Over You” featuring Phonte of Little Brother (Drake’s favorite rapper). She became the official DJ for DC’s Fashion Night Out (2011) and was a hit DJ for spectators at high-end fashion retail store, South Moon Under. In 2011, she was named Betsey Johnson’s “It Girl”.
With a style and sound of her own, DJ Beauty and the Beatz has been featured in several periodicals, including The Washington Post. Popular kid’s periodical, Scholastic Magazine named Beatz one of the “8 Coolest Kids We Met in 2014”. Guest appearances on national news networks include ABC and Fox. Her unmatched talent has gained her national notoriety and even the President and First Lady of the United States took notice. DJ Beauty and the Beatz was invited to the White House and performed for the Obamas during the annual White House “Easter Egg Roll (2014)”.
Now recognized as a celebrity Deejay, Beauty and the Beatz has not only entertained celebs like the First Family, Will Smith, Jamie Foxx, Meagan Good, Big Sean, Doug E Fresh, and Quvenzhane’ Wallis to name a few, but she’s added to her client list companies like Sony, Target, Colgate, The Source Magazine, VH1 Save the Music, and GRAMMY.
Her fans and clients enjoy her versatility, energy, and superstar quality. Her youth, incredible ear for music, and ability to blend electronic, hip hop, and r&b has paved a path for her to tour and promote all over the US. DJ Beauty and the Beatz gained the respect of some of the hottest Deejays and entertainers, both locally and around the country. DC’s Godfather of Go-Go, Chuck Brown, told her that she “is a BIG deal” during a GRAMMY event. Biz Markie told her, over a phone conversation, that she was “dope” and that he wanted to “spin with” her.
