DJ YOUNG MUSIC
“The Streetz Representer”
Since emerging as a mainstay in the music industry and on the streets of Metro DC, DJ Young Music has established a knack for being “the youngest to” do whatever he sets his mind to. A triple threat mogul in the making (deejay, producer and songwriter) and the youngest to ever sign a worldwide distribution deal with eOne Entertainment and NSUC Entertainment Group – he is the choice of the new millennium. Having assembled a top notch team of artists and producers at his DYMG Entertainment imprint, while scoring the success of his own syndicated radio show, he is truly an undeniable talent.
Most recently, the 19-year-old landed a deal to become the youngest DJ to ever join the stable of SuperRadio’s massive network. Superadio Network boasts a database that distributes 40 radio programs through 725 stations, 150 of them based in top 50 markets. A mega deal for DJ Young Music, the agreement will boost the 19-year-old’s weekly audience to an estimated 30 million.
Before the ink was dry, Superadio Networks announced an agreement with DJ Young Music to syndicate Streetz! Slow Lane – a daily one-hour mix show targeted to Urban and Rhythmic radio stations that have all but abandoned the traditional “quiet storm” format.
“Being a part of the Superadio family is very exciting and it is a true blessing to be working with a team that believes in me,” said DJ Young Music. “‘People turn up most of the time. You can’t turn up all the time. But we all need to slow down; bump ballads and mid-tempos every now and then. That’s what ‘Streetz Slow Lane’ is all about.”
When he isn’t in the studio, DJ Young Music is either brokering deals or producing hits such as “Pull Up On The Block” with the likes of iLoveMemphis. A glimpse into the lifestyle of a modern tycoon, the visual of the song finds DJ Young Music flexing in a Maserati – now his norm.
“At the end of the day, my goal is to be the next Diddy,” he says. “I’m the youngest to ever do it. You look at the facts. Who else is doing it at 19? Not just 19, but a fresh 19? Who else doing it like me?”
As he continues his ascension, the highly respected talent has his sights set on extending his radio presence across a variety of genres that will include Top 40, R&B, and Hip Hop, among others.
Known as “The Streetz Representer” in radio circles for his music wherewithal and undeniable connection to the streets, DJ Young Music has quickly established himself as perhaps the DMV’s most sought after rising star. In so doing, he landed primetime mixshows in markets that include his hometown (WPGC 95.5 FM), Savannah, GA (E93 WEAS), Rochester, NY (WDKX 103.9 FM), Myrtle Beach, SC (WDAI 98.5 KISS) and Wilmington, NC (Coast 97.3).
Moreover, the recent signings of two of the DMV’s most coveted artists, in rapper Ant Glizzy and breakout R&B crooner SHADE, only add to his growing legend.
DJ Young Music’s meteoric rise through 2016 wouldn’t be complete without the potential to conquer new territory. Since being crowned by Live Nation/Scream Nation as the DMV’s MADD DJ victor, he gladly accepted a one-night invitation to warm up the crowd on Chris Brown’s “X Tour.” Unsurprisingly, that opportunity led to bookings on several dates of Brown’s subsequent “One Hell of a Nite Tour.”
The success therein allowed for opportunities to share the stage with the likes of T.I., Migos, Fetty Wap, Omarion, French Montana, Kid Ink, Sevyn Streeter, Jidenna, Jazmine Sullivan and a host of others.
When he isn’t traveling the world or brokering mega deals, DJ Young Music is all about his community. His philanthropic efforts were on full display at a recent DJ Demonstration at Chidren’s National Health System in Washington DC. There he was lauded for his desire to give back and ability to trigger an undeniable connection with patients and their families.
An understandably newsworthy subject, DJYM is a fixture in the press, having landed television spots on morning news programs, syndicated & mainstream radio interviews; as well as a plethora of print, digital & social media stories that include national and international audiences.
