Diz is a resident at Fabric in London and has been since its inception. He has also been voted as Los Angeles' favorite out of town DJ for 6 straight years, and he is the resident at Boom Boom Room which is N. Americas longest running house weekly and is celebrating its 15th year. Diz also hosts a weekly in Chicago that is in its 8th year and is a partner in the celebrated Dynagroove parties in Los Angeles that have run for the last 6 years 5-6 times a year. Diz a frequent guest on Loveslap's Xm radio show which averages 200K listeners in the USA weekly. He travels as many as 50 weekends a year and plays and average of 4-5 nights a week.
He is adored by the legions of chin-strokers who expect him to show them what will be next, yet he is regarded as the most accessible of the Chicago superstar DJ's because his style is fun, butter smooth and as tuned into popular music as it is old funk and soul.
Diz is the lead singer of the band The Freaks who have completed their second album and has released more than 40 records through labels which chase him around the world because a connection to Diz is a stamp of approval like getting an a on a report card. Diz and his steady as they come co-producer and friend, Iz, have been asked to do a mix cd for the Fabric series as Iz and Diz. Diz was also asked to prepare a mix for the Ministry of Sound Sessions series but had committed to Loveslap. Diz enjoys bowling and hold's a third-degree black belt in Xbox 360.
He has world class pedigree and has been an important figure in the global DJ community for more than 14 years. He was voted 4th most popular DJ by undergroundhouse.net. But is likely his mother knew he was destined for all this. His favorite toy as a child was her record player, and he enjoyed jumping up and down and singing along to Dizzie Gillespie records so much, she called him Diz from 3 or 4 years old. And not much has changed in the last 30 years.
