In an industry oversaturated with DJs, talent is often undervalued. But, if you’ve ever experienced a live show or heard a mixtape from DJ Tantrum, you can appreciate the value of true talent.
With a diverse skill set, DJ Tantrum has crisscrossed the U.S. and been seen and heard internationally. In 2005 his face was broadcast to millions as DJ cohost of BET's legendary video show Rap City. In 2006 he caught the attention of hip hop icon Eminem's Satellite Radio Channel, Sirius Shade 45, and produced his own 2 hour show. That same year, he also appeared on BET's NBA All-Star Edition of the Road Show.
DJ Tantrum's live sets have gained recognition from clients like the NBA phenom Kendrick Perkins, to the NFL’s New England Patriots. This same recognition has also helped to him score the exclusive Spring Break South Padre Island DJ Residency. For the whole month of March in 2007 and 2008, he was heard by tens of thousands of beach goers daily at the MTV famed spot. In 2010, he was declared Flavor Battle Champion in front of a sold out crowd of nearly 10,000 people at the MTV 2 broadcast Spite Step Off. That summer, he also became the official DJ for PlayDate Houston and the ever popular Texas Greek Picnic. In 2011 he rocked the crowd of over 15,000 at the inaugural Houston Beer Festival.
Tantrum's mix stylings have been underscored by Houston Chronicle's web site chron.com, the Houston Press, Houston Style Magazine, and Ozone Magazine. From performing with distinguished Grammy winners such as Kanye West, to rocking neighborhood block parties throughout Houston, his versatility has helped earn the respect of industry moguls and club goers alike.
Teaming up with multi-platinum selling artists like David Banner, Paul Wall, Pitbull, and Bun-B of UGK, Tantrum has produced many masterful mixtapes, and pushed over 30,000 hand to hand nationally. Collectively, his crew the Tech-Sons DJ Squad have had more than 50,000 mixtapes heard in iPods and cd players worldwide.
DJ Tantrum began his career spinning and successfully promoting high school parties. As Tantrum’s popularity grew, college parties followed, and clubs soon beckoned. In 2005 he cofounded the Tech-Sons DJ Squad with lifelong friends. Together they continue to maintain a solid presence as a DJ collective, but the scope of their talent is not limited to playing music. Through Tantrum's orche-stration, the squad also manages successful marketing ventures by way of their company, 713LAB. Some clients include Fox Films, Nickelodeon, Rogue Pictures, PlayDate USA, Virgin Mobile, Sprite, McDonald’s.
Whether on tour spinning at trendy night spots, in headphones and board shorts, or promoting the latest blockbuster movie, you can be sure DJ Tantrum is a prime talent.
