About DJ Sematic:
Coming from the same part of New York as Pete Rock & CL Smooth, the Lox, Mary J. Blige, DJ Suss, and more, his versatility in the DJ booth will flip on you when you most need it, switching between Hip Hop, R&B, Dance, and Rock, as the chemistry of the dance floor dictates. This talent has stemmed from his passion for music that started at a very early age. DJ Sematic has been heard in the hottest New York City Clubs, such as Stereo, Suede, Remix, Fashion 40, The Millionaire’s Club, Manor, Door Lounge, Cherry Lounge and Prey Lounge, on the airwaves in France on 8RDC 95.5, and in your car system through his mixtapes such as The Best of Bad Boy – Press/Rewind Part 1. DJ Sematic’s projects also include hot mixes such as: Gospel Praize Ride and Club 981 Rhythm N Praise Mix.
DJ Sematic grew up on vinyl turntables, developed into CD turntables, and the MP3 Serato player, by bringing it back to the old school turntables again, with the help of his trendy laptop computer. Six professional years into his DJ career, he is a family man that has grown with the times, but is also a DJ who does not and will not forget the true way to move the crowd: blending, scratching, cutting, and wheeling back, making your heart skip a beat every time he throws on your new favorite song.
As Grammy nominated hip hop artist (Fat Joe’s) former official DJ, Sematic has performed in places such as Morocco , Canada , Nigeria , Ghana , Finland , Rome , Belgium , Austria , London , Holland , Italy , Germany , Brussels , Dubai , and Spain. Although capturing global audiences is what DJ Sematic does best, in December 2008, he gave up the turntables for moving clubs and picked it up to rock with the saints in the Kingdom of GOD.
A great DJ will bring you on a journey that will make you smile, dance, and enjoy yourself all day as well as night. Nobody encompasses these characteristics better than New York ’s own DJ Sematic. Although, he has all these skills, Sematic wants little to do with the fame. He is just wants to spread the good news of Jesus Christ throughout the world and is focused and determined on doing such.
