DJ Premier Set for Keynote Q&A, Plus Performance at DJ Expo

Atlantic City, N.J. — One of popular music’s most legendary DJ/producers is scheduled to make an exclusive appearance at DJ Expo this summer.

At 2:00 pm on Tuesday, August 13, hip-hop legend DJ PREMIER will do a one-hour “Keynote Q&A” in the Trump Taj Mahal’s Diamond Room D, where he’ll be interviewed by DJ Times Editor Jim Tremayne. In this Stanton DJ-sponsored session, Premier will discuss his amazing career, his DJ beginnings and musical inspirations—plus he’ll take questions and offer valuable advice to aspiring hitmakers in the Expo audience.

Immediately afterward, Premier will perform a DJ set and do a proper meet-and-greet at the Stanton DJ booth in the DJ Expo’s exhibit hall (at 3:30 pm). Be there to witness the magic from one of the most influential DJs to ever hit the decks or create a record—the one and only, DJ Premier.

DJ Expo—presented by DJ Times and Testa Communications—will run August 12-15 at the Trump Taj Mahal in Atlantic City, N.J. The Expo will offer three days of exhibits, four days of educational seminars/workshops, and three nights of sponsored parties and events, like ADJ’s Pizzafest (with DJ Kool) and Promo Only’s annual Summer Sessions party.

Since 1990, the influential producer behind Gang Starr has created a slew of hits for a wide range of artists—from rap icons like Jay-Z, Notorious B.I.G. and Nas to pop/urban acts like Christina Aguilera, Alicia Keys and Cee-Lo. As an upcoming DJ in Texas, Premier (aka Christopher Edward Martin) was deeply influenced by New York genre pioneers like Marley Marl and he eventually moved to Brooklyn to begin his long and successful professional career.

DJ Premier’s own label, Year Round Records, sports a roster that includes New York group NYGz and Houston-based rapper Khaleel. Also, DJ Premier hosts a weekly two-hour show, Live From HeadQCourterz, on SiriusXM Radio’s Hip-Hop Nation on Fridays.

DJ Times and Stanton DJ are thrilled to have the great DJ Premier at DJ Expo.
