Currently residing in Atlanta, Georgia and coming from what many consider a very trying time in “music” today, he tries to insert some variety, some difference. Business and art are diametrically opposed forces and music has become a business. DJ 1derful attempts to bring the art, the expression to anyone who will listen. With a lifelong love of music, 1derful has chose mixing underground music as his instrument of musical expression.
The Mission is to be a convenyor of music regardless of the genre. With this in mind, 1derful’s sets feature soulful sounds to satisfy the both radio listeners and those who delve deeper into the obscure and the underground. 1derful presents sounds and spins down and up-tempo soulful and deep house, classic and current hip-hop and R & B, classics and neo-soul, acid jazz and rare grooves all with 1derful’s personal twist.
It is through his desire to showcase the music he loves, he creates mixes in the hope to bring to the forefront unique and talented artists that are often overlooked and/or lesser known by mainstream audiences. He is, indeed, dedicated in helping artists perfect, produce, and succeed effectively in order to share their gift with the world.
It is his dream and hope to continue to spin and create mixes everyone enjoys. As his style evolves he hopes to eventually create his own remixes following the footsteps of his favorite DJ’s. He also would love to create a 24-7 radio station to create an avenue of the music he loves.
