DJ Amen is not only one of the West Coast's hottest DJs, he is also one of its premiere event producers and promoters. He started as one of the first DJ's on his local Hip-Hop station in the Northern Bay Area from which he grew up, and is now on Real 92.3 in Los Angeles 6 days a week as well as one of the all-star DJs on San Francisco's 106.1 FM (KMEL). Both of which are known globally as two of the biggest and most influential Hip-Hop stations in the country. This year Amen also inked a deal with the San Francisco 49ers and Sacramento Kings to be one of the official in stadium/arena DJ's for the 2015-2016 season. With a knack for discovering hot new talent, building influential brands and always being on the cutting edge, he has been instrumental in the resurgence of West Coast Hip-Hop in recent years. Acknowledged as the creator of the Young California platform, he has teamed up with Dj Carisma (of Los Angeles) and other key influencers to help spotlight emerging content from the Golden State. Recently he launched his latest and most successful collaboration his internationally respected "BLESSED" clothing line.
DJ Amen had an amazing 2015 and 2016 is shaping up to be even bigger. Constantly spinning/hosting major events all over the West Coast (San Diego, Los Angeles, Phoenix, Seattle, Vancouver, Honolulu, etc...), some of the key highlights included being officially involved with the annual SXSW music festival in Austin, BET Weekend in Los Angeles, and of course opening up for iHeart Media's annual Real Show/B-day Bash in LA and Summer Jam back home in the Bay Area. He released many critically acclaimed projects including his collab with TheFader.com (showcasing Northern California's HBK Gang) as well as constantly elevating his "BLESSED" clothing collaboration with partnerships like Def Jam Records for Big Sean's Dark Sky Paradise album.
DJ Amen is nationally recognized for breaking the hottest talent and new music first. From local rising stars like Sage the Gemini (whom shouts him out in his platinum selling single "Gas Pedal") to established national acts like Dorrough Music (whom Amen discovered on Myspace and went on to go platinum as a result) and OT Genasis (known for his viral hit "Coco"), he is always searching for the next hottest thing. Whether it's an artist, song, brand, or product, Dj Amen understands the value of a credible and organic co-sign. Continuously looking to create winning situations for those who share his passion, he is a trendsetter, influencer and curator of contemporary culture.
