I will definitely hire DJ Jav again, he was on time, dressed nice, played the right music at the right time. Even with several people giving him all these different mixtures of music, he pulled it off. He did a great job!!! Thanks so much!!!!
As a Staff Sergeant in the US Army, DJ JAV returned in 2008 from a year long tour in Iraq. In his capacity as a Medic, he helped heal injured soldiers in combat. But he also used his DJ skills to heal the homesickness they felt by spinning hip-hop and salsa twice a week. “The soldiers loved the break from the daily rigors of life overseas,” says DJ JAV. “And they appreciated the feel, if only for a night or two, that they were back home dancing in a club with their friends!”
Since returning stateside, DJ JAV continues to make his mark on the hip-hop club scene in Washington, D.C. He is part of WPFW's “Decipher”, a show widely recognized in the city as being the source for authentic, non-commercial rap music. DJ JAV is known as the go-to DJ in DC with party-rocking credibility for a wide range of audiences. Spinning at every hot venue along the historic U Street corridor, including The Howard Theater, DC9, Red Lounge, Amsterdam, Busboys & Poets, LIV, Bohemian Caverns, Jin Lounge, DC9, he's also the resident DJ for the wildly popular Ben's Next Door spinning Top 40, Hip-Hop, R&B, Reggae, House, Classics, as well as Salsa/Bachata/Reggaeton.
Born in the Bronx and raised in Silver Spring, Maryland, he lists Pete Rock and DJ Premier as his main influences. DJ JAV's tools of the trade include Technics 1200's, a Rane mixer, and of course, Serato. He's released four mixtapes: El Mix-O Primero, El Mix-O Segundo, El Mix-O Tres, & El Mix-O Cuatro, both a subtle blend of mellow rap tunes, custom remixes, and the best features from local artists."
