Outstanding display of skill by DJ Day.
Fresh on Mixtape Mondays, we've got the legendary DJ Day from Palm Springs California. His contributions to the various avant-garde music scenes in Southern California run deep and span over two decades. From the historic Root Down parties of Los Angeles to the infamous Do-Over, Day has garnered respect from peers and fans alike for his eclectic, well-executed DJ sets and diverse taste in music. His debut album, The Day Before, rose to the top of numerous notable charts including those of Gilles Peterson (BBC), Jeremy Sole (KCRW) and Philly's Cosmo Baker.
His talent in transitioning between DJ/turntablist, musician and beat maker is best exemplified by his ambitious studio release, Land Of 1000 Chances. He has toured over 20 countries worldwide as a solo artist and performed with artists such as Aloe Blacc, Eminem, Amy Winehouse, People Under the Stairs, Grandmaster Flash, Moodymann, and more. Day was nominated for Song of the Year awards both by the BBC and The Village Voice and his music has been licensed for commercials by DC Shoes, Red Bull Music Academy, Rane/Serato, and numerous full length feature films. He has also been a participant in DJ Jazzy Jeff’s Playlist Retreat since it’s conception.
Currently, he holds a residency at the Ace Hotel in Palm Springs.
