DJ Rockin Rob
Rob has been spinning records since the early days of Hip Hop, perfecting what has been a very important element to DJing, the art of showmanship! While spinning the music that he loved, Rockin Rob learned to entertain the audience with tricks and special moves as a DJ such as the incredibly difficult style of needle dropping. Rob’s warm personality, turntablist skills and extensive rare record collection have been an inspiration to other DJs from all generations, within and outside of the world of Hip Hop. DJ Rockin Rob is a legend in the art form of Hip Hop DJing going back to the days when he would lug his turntables to Clark Park in the Bronx to get his neighborhood moving to his beats.
A Native New Yorker of Afro-Latin descent and Sanskrit name lends to her cultural ambiguity, global perspective and universal sound. Heavily influenced by music at a young age and endowed with a rich musical legacy as a daughter of Jazz tenor and soprano saxophonist Carter Jefferson, Kamala also credits her multi-cultural Chelsea-Manhattan upbringing and years of downtown night-clubbing for giving her a flavor-full edge in her music direction.
While Kamala is best known for her deep soulful house music sets, her musical ear and music programming spans decades and covers many genres from Nu-Soul, Global Lounge, Electro pop, Trip Hop, Hip Hop, Dub, Afrobeat, Dance & Soul classics, Salsa and beyond.
For over a decade Natasha Diggs has been digging deeper to provide the soundscape for events across the globe in cities such as Berlin, Tokyo, Sydney, Beijing, Prague, Los Angeles and New York.As resident of New York City's premiere all-vinyl 45 party, Mobile Mondays, Diggs has become a force to be reckoned with and one of the most sought-after DJs in the 45 game.
She's played alongside artists such as Kenny Dope, Dam Funk, DJ Spinna, Cut Chemist, Spinderella, DJ Scratch, Just Blaze, DJ Muro, Da Beatminerz, Break Beat Lou, Prince Paul, Boogie Blind, and many more.
