Born and raised in Long Beach, California, DJ Orator got his start in the world of DJing at a young age. Roaming the halls of Long Beach Polytechnic High School with the likes of Warren G and Snoop Dogg gave him the inspiration to try his hand at music and, more specifically, share it with the world. Working for MTV news correspondent Sway and producing the World Famous Wake Up show on 92.3 The Beat from 1999 through 2005 quickly gave him a name in the Los Angeles hip-hop music scene. Following that, DJ Orator quickly moved in on Hollywood dominating the urban hip-hop market as a tastemaker and trendsetter. He is known for having the freshest, newest, and best hip-hop and R&B tracks long before they hit the masses leaving many people shaking their heads wondering how (and where) he got them. DJ Orator is one of Los Angeles’ and Hollywood’s most talented DJs. He is known for rocking Guys and Dolls in Beverly Hills each and every Sunday with a regular quest list that includes Drake, Lamar Odom, The Game, Kid Cudi, Tyrese Beckford, Cuba Gooding Jr., Amerie, Khloe and Kim Kardashian, Keri Hilson, and Amber Rose.
He can also be seen DJing Ecco Ultralounge in Hollywood and recently killed the crowd for VH1’s “For the Love of Ray J” premier party hosted by Ray J himself. Soon after that he manned the turn tables at not one but two American Music Awards after parties hosted by Omarion and The Game, respectively. DJ Orator showed off his skills at the Jay-Z Blueprint 3 after party in Los Angeles and was tapped to DJ Snoop Dogg’s official Malice in Wonderland album release party. He can be seen DJing regularly at Hyde Lounge on Sunset Boulevard, Mi-6, Kress, Opera, Crimson, MyHouse and Area. It is not uncommon to see talent such as the legendary Dr. Dre with him in the DJ booth after the party expressing an extreme satisfaction with his selection and style. Not limited to Hollywood, DJ Orator has also taken the stage at three consecutive Rock the Bells music festivals which are know for showcasing the hottest and most talented artists in the world of rap and hip hop.
