DJ A_Dog got his start in the small northeast town of Burlington, VT. The homebase of one of the biggest action sports companies in the country, Burton Snowboards. He began playing small clubs with jazz/funk bands as a set break dj and eventually started scratching along with the bands. He ended up having residencies in 3-4 clubs in his area for his vast diversity in music. With styles that range from down tempo, rare grooves, jazz/funk, old & new hip hop and reggae he created a scene for the Burlington heads to come check out.
After winning URB MAGAZINES mixtape contest in 2000 DJ A_Dog became more of a staple in BURTONS promotional game. After they turned his winning mixtape into a promo mix for the tradeshow in Las Vegas, A_Dog became more common in the snowboard industries party scene. The brand ANALOG that Burton also makes was geared towards music, so that made it possible for more promo parties around the U.S. From Salt lake City, Utah, southern California, Idaho, Colorado & Las Vegas, A_Dog was the DJ for all these events along with headliners like the Roots, Mix Master Mike, Common, Supernatural, R.A. the Rugged Man, DJ Green Lantern, Gangstarr, and Blackstarr to name a few. To this day he attends the the SIA tradeshow in Las Vegas and the annual World Tour Party in New York City.
Besides the action sports world A_Dog holds down a number of residencies in his home town. From his classic hip hop night at The Red Square to his bi-monthly lounge night where his selection consists of soul, reggae and hip hop and then back to the Red Square on satuday nights at midnight to run hip hop & reggae leaning more towards the mainstream. And with 2-3 major colleges in the area A_Dog usually gets called to open their shows as well…some memorable ones being, Jurrassic 5, Blackalicious, Common, Talib Kweli.
Burlington, VT also has a premier concert venue called Higher Ground that has brought some serious artists here as well, and you better believe A_Dog has his foot way in that door.
DJ A_Dog is the man for the job if you are looking for someone to rock your party on some old school vibe, bringing soul, funk ,reggae & hip hop to his set.
