DJ Dredd is all about making people dance. His genre-bending style of mixing and uncanny ability to turn any venue into the best party in town has become his trademark which in turn has allowed him to attract a following of people just as diverse as his vast vinyl collection. Both a student and teacher of music, he views his craft as a form of storytelling—carefully curating and mixing each song to create a memorable narrative.
The Washington Post calls DJ Dredd "Washington's foremost Princeologist,"—stating that no DJ in Washington is more associated with Prince's music. Dredd is the architect of the long-running Prince dance parties in DC that have spanned almost two decades.
DJ Dredd is an early pioneer of "versus" themed dance parties such as 1958 (Prince|MJ|Madonna), Purple Stank (Prince|Outkast), Real Friendz (Beyonce|Jay-Z|Drake|Rihanna|Kanye West), Close 2 the Edge (vintage Hip Hop), and annual MJ Birthday Celebrations. He has also held residencies at some of DC's most celebrated nightclubs. Check out the media page for links to mixes.
Dredd has performed at private events for Prince, Stevie Wonder, Bill Murray, Berry Gordy (Motown), Boyz II Men, Fab 5 Freddy, LVCVA, NY Toast, Washington Life Magazine, SAG-AFTRA, NatGeo, and Droga5.
