Solid technical skill, unmatchable versatility, and a true love for music are among the many things that separate DJ Intel from his contemporaries. His unique style makes him a fan favorite. Intel’s ability to spin many genres, including house, rock and contemporary as well as hip hop classics, keeps the dance floor full and leaves the people wanting more at the end of the night.
DJ Intel's interest in turntablism began in the mid 90's. He looked up to such Chicago legends as DJ PNS and Tone B Nimble and soon began the journey of perfecting his craft. Armed with his brother's hand-me-down turntables, a mixer and passion, he would begin to make his name as one of Chicago's premier party starters.
Along with being a founding member of both The Comeups (along side DJ Pickel and Galapagos4 and Now and Again records recording artist Maker) and the DMC and ITF champion Platter Pirates (along side Spryte, Kico, and Vajra), DJ Intel holds down several residencies through out Chicago and has worked everything from charitable events to B boy battles to fashion shows, with crowds ranging from 15 to thousands. He has also preformed at events with the likes of Wu-Tang Clan, Mos Def, Lupe Fiasco, Cypress Hill, Pete Rock, Afrika Bambaataa and Z- Trip as well as headlined major music events such as Lollapalooza and SXSW.
DJ Intel has also taken his show on the road with several tours, most notably a 32 state excursion with Ninja Tune's DJ Vadim. He has also traveled to grace the main stage of many legendary parties including, The Root Down, Low End Theory and the Music Machine. DJ Intel's skill extends beyond his live performance. He was voted “Best MixTape DJ” by WNUR's Time Travel Show and the web community on DJZTRIP.COM. New York Post and Entertainment Weekly have also taken note of his outstanding abilities.
So, when you are headed to a party and you see DJ Intel on the bill you can guarantee that you are in for an amazingly diverse party, full of nonstop dancing and entertainment.
