“DJ Silas is fueled by the energy of music and he is determined to accomplish big things in the music business.
While he makes his line of work seem flawless, it didn’t happen overnight. It took lot of time and dedication to get where he is. Yet, he is still growing. DJ Silas’ interest for music goes back to listening to records at a young age, around the time when his sister was involved with dancing. “We were always into the whole music thing,” he said. “I always loved it.”
“The dream is starting to become a reality for the 26-year-old disc jockey. He is constantly going out to clubs and events, grinding out every night to gain more exposure as well as seeking the thrill of entertaining others with the art of mixing.
DJ Silas, who uses his first name when performing, is not one dimensional by any means. While he loves hip-hop and is a fan of Jay-Z and Nas, he also does sets featuring dance, reggae and even Latin music. Once, while on A-List Radio, he played a Caribbean music set that caught listeners by surprise. “I like the feeling of playing music and seeing a crowd react to it,” he said. “Going to a club and sometimes there’s 200 or 300 people and they’re vibing to what you’re playing. You get them going crazy, you make them sing the song. That’s my whole feeling. That’s what give me goose bumps.””
Deejay Silas will be having a Grand Opening for a lounge spot in Astoria, Queens on Steinway street called “Static Lounge”. Dj Prostyle will be in the building spinning some hot joints for everyone to vibe to. If your in the area or not, you should make your way out there!
Deejay Silas is also a Dj for Alistradio.net, an online radio station. To keep up with Dj Silas, follow him on twitter @djsilasnyc.
