With over a decade of experience playing to the masses, And2 is no stranger to the nightlife scene. DJing turned from a casual hobby into a passion during his college years as a local in-demand DJ, producer, and Vice President of CU Records - Columbia University Records, a student run record label. The passion deepened during his graduate school days at Cornell; he became the official resident DJ for his school and also a regular DJ at a number of clubs, bars, and fraternities around Ithaca, NY.
The thought of turning the passion into a career took form during his college years in NYC. There, he became a local in-demand DJ, began his venture into music production, and also helped run a student record label - Columbia University Records, or CU Records for short - serving as vice president of the organization. The "And2" name was officially created during his graduate school days at Cornell; he became the official resident DJ for his school and also a regular DJ at a number of clubs, bars, and fraternities around Ithaca, NY.
And2 hit the club scene hard after returning to NYC, starting out with a number of sets at Cielo, Hotel Chantelle, and the legendary nightclub Pacha. From there, he soon gained residencies at high profile NYC venues including The Windsor at The Gansevoort Park Hotel and the FC Gotham Club, Beaumarchais, and VIP Room venues in NYC’s elite Meatpacking District.
These days, you can usually catch him at one of his residencies at 48 Lounge, Ascent Lounge, Quiet Events (New York's premier "quiet clubbing" party provider), or as the resident DJ for Live Music Pros (NYC's leading full-scale band and event organizer). During the live shows, "open-format" DJing is And2’s trademark style. Expect to experience a curated sound across multiple genres, anything from hip-hop to throwback dancehall, trap, reggaeton, funk, house, dembow, top-40 pop, EDM, soca, and beyond. Also be on the lookout as And2 returns to production mode, scheduled to release a brand new mashup project soon.
