DJ D-Nice        

Disc Jockey, Rapper, Producer & Photographer

With an unbelievable journey taking him from the streets of Harlem to touring and recording with Boogie Down Productions to The White House, Derrick “D-Nice” Jones is not just a pillar of the culture’s history but is continuing to make history while shaping and guiding the culture and industry.

The legendary DJ, rapper, beatboxer, producer, photographer, and philanthropist has moved millions on wax with timeless records, on stage at unforgettable gigs, and online with his revolutionary virtual “Club Quarantine” on Instagram Live. The latter notably set a precedent and built a template for numerous Instagram Live series during the pandemic. His influence is recognized industrywide. The NAACP Image Awards named him Entertainer Of The Year, the BET Awards made him an honorary recipient of the “Shine A Light” Award, while he took home the 2020 Webby Artist of the Year award in the category of “Special Achievement”, and Ebony Magazine recently included him on their 2021 “Power 100” list.

Most importantly, “Club Quarantine” positively impacted the globe, raising millions for First Responders, HBCU’s, CDC, Apollo Theater, and more. In 2021 he teamed up with Issa Rae’s Raedio, he co-curated the Official Playlist of the Biden + Harris inauguration. Shortly after, he performed at the official Super Bowl LV pre-show at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, FL. His timeless blend of hip-hop, soul, and R&B has previously soundtracked President Barack Obama’s 2012 inaugural ball, Academy® Awards parties, the Essence Festival, and BET’s “Love and Happiness” Concert at the White House in 2016.

After spreading hope online, he is back to making records and rocking stages, taking his talent from Club Quarantine Live at legendary Hollywood Bowl to the iconic Met Gala. D-Nice continues to leave an indelible mark on the game.
