Mix #217 we bring you DJ DOPEONE from New York. With his unique style of blending today’s chart-topping hits with the throwbacks of yesterday, DJ DopeOne is able to bring high energy levels and his amazing skills to any club or party, which is quite a contrast from the shy kid he was growing up in Western New York.
He may have been a bit of a loner in high school, but DopeOne always loved music, and felt that it could be his key to becoming more open and sociable. This figured in to his decision to become a professional DJ as much as his desire to share his love of music and mixing skills with the crowds in bars and clubs. At 18, he got his first gig as a DJ, but aside from being his first foray into the world of professional DJing.
A truly versatile DJ, DopeOne does not pigeonhole himself in one or two genres, instead creating an “evolved fusion” of Top-40, Hip-Hop, EDM, Throwbacks, Remixes & Mashups, giving the crowd whatever it wants. This adaptability has made him one of the most sought- after open-format club DJs in the Twin Tiers area, so it’s no coincidence clubs and bars just happen to be his favorite types of events to work. “I love the bars and clubs, mostly because of the energy that comes along with it,” DopeOne says. “There’s a rush you get when you see a packed dance floor and knowing in your mind that you’re the cause of that.”
A fixture for over a decade at Western New York events, bars, nightclubs and parties, DJ DopeOne is looking to expand beyond his area in the not too distant future. “I would love to become more recognized in the industry and start DJing some of the bigger venues across the United States,” he says. Make sure to listen and download his exclusive mix that he made for us at DMS.
