DJ Royale
DJ Royale
Guided by a unique ability to empathize with the vibrations of any crowd, Royale has mastered the art of bringing together even the most diverse lot. His performance and innovative persona makes obvious a conviction in an American DJ's obligation to not just comprehend Disc Jockeying, but to have a creative passion to bring the obscure, nostalgic, technological, and fresh together in a way that evokes and transcends a crowd. His agenda to execute thru an ear for class, style, and for the sensual has lifted him to a place of critical acclaim in the DJ community.
His talent, skill, and reliability has dawned him a concrete and crisp reputation with brands and venues alike. Having experience with rocking crowds ranging from retro-indie parties to large scale club crowds at Whisper NightClub in Philadelphia and the late DJ AM's Dusk NightClub in Atlantic City, Royale's versatility is evident. With creating a clear professional identity for himself, brands such as Red Bull, Stoli, Sailor Jerry, Coors Light, Adidas, Armani Exchange, and Duke & Winston have selected Royale to musically represent for them at events. All of these experiences have recently lead Royale to being selected as a contestant on VH1's "Master of The Mix."
Royale's creative presence and personality exudes clear confidence, but is not without an everlasting need and hunger for continued growth and knowledge in the musical realm, turntablism, and in cultural style and fashion. His agenda, passion, and ambition keep him distinguished from the others and leaves him the epitome of The American Dj.
