In today's EDM scene, a DJ is defined by his sound &creativity. "Ravers" or "Clubheads" today can actuallydistinguish the difference between a "good" set or just a DJ thatthrows tracks around with no meaning... This said, after studying music theory for 7 years and playing differentmusical instruments such as; guitar, alto saxophone, drums & keyboards justto name a few, Oren D has not only mastered the art of constructing sets fromthe ground up but delivering unique & banging ones each & every singletime.
What ignited the up & coming DJ to start mixing? It all started when he wasin high school and started making monthly mix-tapes that his friends were eagerto get their hands on time he'd come up with a new one. After high school hemoved to Florida where he fell in love with House music. So much that he wouldspend night & day digging for all the tracks that he could get his handson, studying the difference in musical variation of each style and mostimportantly understand the impact each & every song could have on the dancefloor if played at the right time. 5 years down the line, Oren D wanted to takeit to the next step and got himself a weekly residency at one of the newest& hottest local clubs at the time (2008) Oxygen in Panama City Beach,Florida. Every Tuesday for 6 months locals and tourists from all over thePanhandle of Florida would come & enjoy his set and always left themcraving for more...
