About me:DJ Gravy is a rare breed. Connecting the dots all around the pop culture stratosphere, this New York native has created a uniquely successful hybrid of Caribbean Bashment Culture and Downtown's exclusive party circuit.
As founder of the widely popular "RICE and PEAS Party", DJ Gravy formed a recognized brand in a matter of months that has grown tremendously since its '07 inception and has hosted release parties and promotional events for Wayne Wonder, Assassin, Gyptian, Timberlee, Frank151, Okayplayer, Jamrock Magazine, Backayard Magazine, Scion, The Fader, Urb, VP Records and more. Reggae luminaries Sean Paul, Shaggy, Richie Spice, Mr Vegas, Ricky Blaze, Chelly and plenty more have all made special appearances at RICE and PEAS Parties.
In addition to his own events, Gravy has become known as the "it" factor at special events (like Marc Baptiste's photo exhibit at Milk Gallery, supermodel Erin Wasson's Fashion Week Party, Ricky Powell's Book release and Danny Supa's Birthday Party) and as resident DJ of well known weekly NY events like Q-Tip's "OPEN" Fridays at Santos, and Jamrock Magazine's (NBC endorsed) "Rock With Squeeze" Mondays at SOB's.
Then there DJ Gravy's cult like following for his series of "Iration Soundz" Mix CDs and a string of popular Reggae / Hip Hop / Electro Remixes played regularly by countless DJs around the globe and met with a seal of approval from dance floor crowds, complete with the shriek of screaming girls!
On top of all this, DJ Gravy keeps busy collaborating on tracks with noted Interscope producers Adam Deitch and Eric Krasno's "Fyre Dept." and stays active in the live music circuit as well, serving as the live turntablist, sampler / sound fx player in Adam Deitch's project now titled "Break Science".
So if he's not on tour in Europe, doing his Summer residence in the Hamptons, or speaking on panels he put together for CMJ, you can be sure DJ Gravy's crafting his new next release or prepping the launch of his "Large Up" channel on Okayplayer.com
Gravy has played well known venues like The Nokia Theater, The Hammerstein Ballroom, Highline Ballroom, Bowery Ballroom, The Box, Santos, Red Bull Space, Lotus, Love, Manor, Rebel, Joe's Pub, APT, Club 205, Studio B, Negril, Bembe, Kush, Blue Note and Mercury Lounge...
