DJ Ekin, of the Bronx, New York, began his craft with a set of turntables given to him by his father. Known widely as “Tampa’s Most Connected DJ,” he has worked with Jay-Z, Beyoncé, Lil Wayne and Justin Timberlake. He can be heard on WPOI HOT 101.5 every morning for the “HOT Morning Mix” at 6 a.m., 7 a.m. and 8 a.m. and again at 10 p.m. for the “10 o’clock HOT Mix.” DJ Ekin is also the host of Tampa Bay’s Flip TV, which is a weekly countdown show of the area’s best talent on MyTV Tampa Bay.
Groomed in one of the epicenters of turntables, Cerritos, Calif., it was a simple task for DJ Five to rise to the top in Las Vegas. With DMC-caliber skills, impeccable mixing, a vast knowledge of music and a love for hip hop that has spanned decades, DJ Five has emerged as a household name in Sin City’s burgeoning nightlife industry. He was voted “#1 DJ” in 2004 by Las Vegas Life Magazine and has played across the nation.
