Just as KRS One once said I am the manifestation of study, not the manifestation of money, same thing rings true of DJ Anger. This self taught turntable virtuoso, devoted business man and music aficionado, has vastly spread his influence as one of the most solid DJs and party rockers on the west coast.
Getting his start after the purchase of a set of Technics 1200′s in grade school, Anger taught himself to DJ and his hobby quickly evolved into moonlighting as one of the city’s most in demand DJs. A chameleon in his sound, Anger’s hip hop roots have developed in versatility to keep him right at the edge of the newest styles, all the while maintaining the throwback influences. Delving into sounds ranging from funk to breaks, reggae to bass heavy, Anger’s ability to keep the crowd dancing keeps him in the limelight and sharing stages with some of the biggest in music today. Whether it be opening up for hip hop giants like Blackalicious or bass executioners like Excision, spinning tunes for fitness classes at Body Dynamic, backing up fiddler Kytami or jumping in as Wu-Tang Clan Raekwon’s DJ, Anger’s ability to seamlessly swing between styles, genres and situations is no match.
Not content to stick just with DJing, Anger also splits his time between his business, Party People Sound Solutions; a mobile DJ/gear rental service he runs alongside Jeff Lingwood (DJ Primitive). Besides PPSS, Anger is also embarking on overseeing the investment of one of Vancouver Island’s first PK Sound rigs with Ruairi Matthews. An essential part of the PK Sound Village Stage crew at the Shambhala Music Festival, 2013 will see Anger is prepping to enter his third season with the group, this year as lead carpenter.
Whether you catch DJ Anger behind the decks or in one of his many other specialties, you can guarantee that this professional will keep you dancing and moving regardless of the scene or location. An Antonym of his name, Anger comes correct with style, flair and that trademark smile.
