Growing up, Nessdigital always wanted to play the sax and the piano because he wanted to be like two of his favorite jazz musicians, John Coltrane and Thelonious Monk. Although he never learned to play either instrument, he did the next best thing...He became a Dj!
This all came about quite accidentally back when he was promoting an event at The Sugar Shack in Harlem. One night, the deejay he had booked, had cancelled at the last minute and not knowing what to do, Nessdigital was left scrambling for a replacement. He called every dj he knew but no one was available.
Worried and upset, Nessdigital contacted another buddy promoter to see if he might be able to offer some assistance and that's when he struck gold. His friend brilliantly suggested connecting his laptop (loaded with Napster tunes) into the venue's house system. He tried that, and somehow, it miraculously worked. This was way before the ease of plug and play dj controllers.. And the rest is, as they say, history... And he's been spinning ever since.
Nessdigital sets are crafted to get folks up and going and it takes a certain knack to spin music that can connect with a body of folks, but when it happens, its electrifying. He strives to make this connection each time he plays, whether he's playing at a major event or a quaint spot. Ness spins only the best funk, rock, soul, r&b, house, Latin, reggae, World, lounge, jazz and hip-hop tracks in his set. You can catch him rocking at some the hottest venues around the city, especially in Harlem. On Saturdays, catch him spinning at Red Rooster for their Motown & Mimosa brunch and also at Little Bamboo later in the evening.
