DJ Genesis (born David Omar Rodriguez) is a highly praised and accomplished disc jockey that has excelled in the DJ scene with ambition, style, and professionalism. Born and raised in New Jersey, Genesis was raised in a Puerto Rican and Colombian household that set the foundation for what would evolve into a promising DJ career. Brought up in a family with tremendous passion for music, Genesis had great influence at an early age being the son to an amateur DJ (Angel Rodriguez) and nephew to legendary instrumentalist (Jay Rodriguez). “I craved to do anything involving music. It is something that has always been part of my DNA”, he states. Genesis was an impressive saxophonist for North Bergen High School and continued on to Rutgers University, where he gained his first major crowd exposure as captain of the step team for Sigma Lambda Beta International Fraternity Incorporated. It was then that Genesis had the realization his true devotion to music was in the DJ booth. Spending countless hours practicing and learning the basics, he started from the bottom, snatching up small house party gigs at colleges and universities but quickly gained momentum that flourished into residencies all over New Jersey and New York City. He kicked his hunger to DJ up a notch by attending DJ Creme’s In The Mix DJ School, where he gained profound knowledge that prepared him to conquer all obstacles. With his immense knowledge of music and unlimited creativeness, Genesis impresses all ears with his open format mastery. His unmatched skills and flair has gotten him the opportunity to astound crowds at notable venues such as Pacha NYC, Latin Quarters, Electric Warehouse, and B.B. King’s, which resulted in a demand for his presence all across the United States, with bookings in New York, Connecticut, Florida, Pennsylvania, Idaho, Washington, and California.
