BY EVAN MONROE
BORN AND RAISED: Brooklyn.
INTRO TO THE INDUSTRY: As an engineer, working with artists and producers like 50 Cent, Beyoncé, and De La Soul. In 2004, he traveled to Tokyo to DJ and fell in love with the craft. Upon returning to the U.S., he expanded his fan base and became one of the most sought-after DJs in the city.
NOTABLE GIGS: Residences have included 1 OAK, Avenue, SL, and Funday at Gold Bar. Sinatra has also been requested for private events, most nota bly Miley Cyrus’s private Bangerz album release party, the New York Yankees 2009 World Series Championship after party, Louis Vuitton private store events, Robin Thicke’s birthday party, and fashion events worldwide.
OTHER CELEBRITY ADMIRERS: Jay Z, Lindsay Lohan, Pharrell Williams, Leonardo DiCaprio, Alex Rodriguez, and Natalie Portman.
MIX: Ranges from current hits to classics, from house to hip-hop, electro, and disco. The booking company SKAM Artists describes him as having “an uncanny gift for reading any crowd’s musical preferences, which allows him to deliver the best party experience possible.”
UPCOMING EVENT: September 28 at Playboy Club NY. Inspired by the original Los Angeles Playboy Mansion’s multiple venues, this varied space includes a Mansion Lounge, Grotto Lounge, and Royal Lounge. On select nights, its Black Box venue hosts themed events that previously took place at the Mansion, such as “Masquerade Night” and “Hef’s Haunted House.” Private memberships are available, too.
