DJ HangLoose was born and raised in Hawaii. While living in New York during the early 1980s when Hip Hop was really expanding and he became truly rooted in Hip Hop culture before moving back to Hawaii a few years later. In 1995, while suffering from a skateboard injury, he began DJ'ing again at a local skate rink, taking over for his eldest brother who had just joined the Army. As an Army brat himself, he moved all around the world and was able to experience different types of music, which helped him create his expansive and unique style. Now, with over 20 years of professional experience, he continues to share his craft with others. Although he is best known for his superb mixing skills, a variety of trick mixing and large library of old school hits, he is well known for his amazing ability to read a crowd. DJ HangLoose has a way with performing fresh live remixes to relate to an entire audience. His remixes of the top 40s will always keep a crowd hype and wanting more. He is dedicated, a perfectionist, and a true professional at music history, audio technology, and the art of DJ'ing.
