~DJ Beanz aka “Holla at Beanz”~
DJ Beanz is originally from the North Shore of Massachusetts. Back in Boston, she had immersed herself in hip-hop from an early age, studying greats such as Grand Master Flash, Roc Raida, and Tony Touch. Then in ‘99 she had an opportunity to move to Florida, taking a job promoting shows. And while hip-hop was what she knew, being in Florida, there was a large drum and bass scene and she took the opportunity during her free time to mess around on the turntables and essentially teach herself how to DJ. She would get her chance when, as she puts it, she “was thrown out there in front of a crowd where no one was dancing.” Well, they weren’t dancing, but by the time she looked up as her set was ending, everyone was on their feet moving and she knew she’d found her calling.
Fast-forward 3-4 years later Beanz moved to the DC/MD/VA area (Better known now as “The DMV”). It came as no surprise that she gravitated towards the music scene after moving here. Hanging around in some of the lounges and open mics allowed her to hone her craft and also meet some of the regional celebrities of the underground. Since then DJ Beanz has been doing shows in clubs up and down the East Coast, working with Indies and majors nationwide. She is an active tour, radio, club, mixtape DJ/Host and print model.
DJ Beanz separates herself from other female DJs by being an avid supporter of the “Indie” Hip-Hop scene and a true record breaker “Trying To Keep REAL hip-hop alive”, and working to become a master of the craft.
