To say that vinyl records are a part of DJ Prestige’s life would be a considerable understatement. A DJ and vinyl advocate for more than two decades, Prestige has been a vocal champion for all things “black wax” through hundreds of live gigs over the past 20 years, and at the acclaimed Flea Market Funk website. He is the definition of someone who practices what he preaches, and his insider view of the DJ and record collecting game make him one of the most respected names in the blogosphere, as well as the NYC area DJ scene. DJ Prestige, who has spent his life in the NJ / NYC area, has toured nationally as a DJ on the Lava/ Atlantic record label as well as opened for artists ranging from Q-Tip, Bad Brains, and Joss Stone among many others while also doing parties for corporate clients such as Google, You Tube, Adidas, Universal Pictures, Victoria’s Secret, Major League Soccer, and more. He has been featured on ESPN and has also collaborated with Major League Soccer on their New York derby campaign in 2016.
Prestige was a Production Coordinator and Contributing writer on Eilon Paz’s acclaimed Dust & Grooves: Adventures In Record Collecting, the first photo book on vinyl collectors and their collections. He is also an active freelance writer, and is sought after for music reviews and social commentary on vinyl records and much more.
