DJ CARVER THE GREAT BIOGRAPHY

After deciding to leave his job as an engineer to pursue a career as a full-time DJ, Carver The Great has spent the past year rocking crowds in Atlanta and New York City.

Since then, Carver has become one of North America’s most versatile, passionate, and professional DJ’s. Layered with many talents, Carver has worked with nightlife industry leaders and corporate clients to DJ weddings, corporate events, clubs, happy hours, and house parties.

In the summer of 2012 Carver re-located to New York City to study under the world’s most skilled DJ’s at the prestigious Scratch DJ Academy founded by the late Jam Master Jay of Run D.M.C.

Known for being a quick learner and possessing a talent for building relationships, Carver used his network to earn DJ opportunities at prominent New York City establishments. During the 4th quarter of 2012 Carver displayed his talent internationally as the celebrity DJ on a Royal Caribbean Cruise Line ship that went to Bermuda and used his notoriety to DJ at the local club (Snorkel Park Beach Club) in Bermuda where the cruise ship docked.

Along with DJ’ing Weddings & Corporate Events in New York City, Carver’s Barbershop Friday’s mixes are posted on the popular relationship blog Single Black Male on Friday mornings. His New Joints of the Week can be found on the pop culture blog site Chan-Lo on Tuesdays, and in addition to that, Carver’s podcasts & mixtapes can be found on www.carverthegreat.wordpress.com where he posts several each week.

When he’s not behind the turntables you can find Carver teaching classes and workshops at Scratch DJ Academy in New York City
