*RECYCLED FUNK RADIO WITH DJ OBAH
DJ OBaH turned a family legacy into a profession, becoming a rising industry music producer and highly sought after NYC DJ. OBaH stands for OldskoolBeatsAndHarmonies for a very good reason... the son of veteran NYC DJ/Record Dealer, Baba Chico, DJ OBaH had the world's best funk, jazz & soul records at his fingertips. Armed with his father's epic record collection, OBaH quickly made his mark on the NYC club scene, becoming the resident DJ at several nightclubs in his native Brooklyn.
Quickly gaining respect and a solid fan base, his first big break came courtesy of world-renowned DJ, Rich Medina, who invited OBaH to spin at his weekly party at the legendary APT club in the meatpacking district of NYC. Since then, OBaH has spun in well over 75 venues in NYC, across the U.S. and Europe and has DJ'd private parties for Alicia Keys, Lenny Kravitz, Donna Karan and many other A-list celebrities. His talents have also been commissioned by such companies as Louis Vuitton, Vogue magazine, Donna Karan, Yahoo, Getty Images, live performances by hip hop legends Krs-one, Brand Nubian and a long impressive list of international bands and Dj's. In 2010 and 2011 OBaH was invited to represent NY as the official DJ for the "New York stage" of Czech Republic's largest music festival "Colours of Ostrava" where he provided opening, closing and afterparty sets for a host of International artist & bands.
DJ OBaH continues to spin on a weekly basis, produce remixes as well as original compositions for television and film. Several of his tracks have been featured on networks such as MTV, NBC, Bravo, HBO, A&E. NYC based tv/film production company Interloc Films has enlisted OBaH to work as music supervisor for their first film. His remix for ESL recording artist Ocote Soul Sounds landed him a full page feature article in DJ Times magazine (march 2010). OBaH has also been featured on Timeout NY's "homespun sessions" showcase which highlights premier Dj's from across the globe. In 2008 Dubspot records released "Funk Aid for Africa" which was compiled, mixed and executive produced by OBaH. The compilation was highly acclaimed and a great charitable success helping to raise money for Nextaid. OBaH participated in a national coast to coast tour supporting the release and a follow up compilation is scheduled for release in 2011. He can also be heard on the Giant Step jukebox radio, as host of his own show, Recycled Funk. And when he isn't rocking the party himself, he's teaching others the craft as a DJ instuctor at Dubspot, NYC's preeminent music production and DJ school. He takes his "formative education" with him wherever he goes (thanks dad).
