It's Complicated
Bio:
Man, who the hell isn't a DJ in the Bay Area these days? Every other person you bump into is on the tip. Just being a DJ isn't good enough anymore. It has to be, "I'm an intelligent down tempo booty rock electro-clash mash-up glitch-IDM DJ. Oh, and I also play Duran Duran."

When was it decided that any jerk with 10 records (or 100 MP3s and Serato) is a DJ, and when was it decided that just being a good old-fashioned hip-hop DJ is passé?

DJ Platurn is way beyond all of that. He's a real deal hip-hop DJ who rocks the party the original way: nothing but top-notch track selection and skills to back it up. Give the man two turntables and a mixer and stand back because you're going to witness some classic DJing. He'll not only serve the crowd what they're hungry for, he'll keep 'em dancing with all kinds of tunes they didn't even know they wanted to hear. Cutting up breakbeats, doing blends live and on the fly, scratching, mixing…the guy's got the full skill set to be a fully-rounded DJ, and he's good at everything. Not only is that increasingly rare in today's "instant DJ--just add water!" world, it's a strong and important tie to the Hip-Hop tradition Platurn comes from: In order to get on and really do a good job as a DJ, you have to be well-rounded.

Being a good and well-rounded DJ also means being a top-notch selector. Platurn ain't fakin' the funk when it comes to his record collection and what he plays for the crowd. Well-known cuts, obscurities, remixes, hip-hop, funk, rock, disco, soul, and pop all expertly woven together. You want B-boy breaks? He's got you covered. Slow jams? Awwww yeeeeaaaah. Do you want old-school hip-hop? Break out the Gazelles, fool! Wherever the party needs to go, he is prepared to take it there.

Word certainly spreads quickly; besides having been voted Oakland's best DJ by the East Bay Express and winning Scions’ Free Up Your Mix competition along with fellow Oakland Fader DJ Spair, Platurn has devastated crowds from coast to coast and internationally. In doing so, he's shared the stage with folks like Z-Trip, Krs-One, Mixmaster Mike, The Beat Junkies, DJ Premier, Slick Rick, Maseo(De La Soul), ZionI, Jazzy Jay, Quest-Love(The Roots), M.F. Doom, A-Trak, Afrika Bambaata, Pete Rock, and a whole bunch more. Not too bad for that tall skinny white boy from Iceland.
