DJ Robb-O is a party rocking DJ, Remixer and Producer from Bay Shore, New York.
Spinning records began in high school during the mid eighties starting at local gigs then moving on to NYC clubs such as Nells, Limelight and early Giant Step parties. His style has invited him to play a variety of places including basement parties, college radio and huge out door events.
From the start of hip hop the DJ was the back bone of the rap group and Robb-O was definitely one of those type of deejays. Coming from the era where you entertained through the turntables and microphone... you had to know your music and selections of "breaks and beats".
This was the start of the production career.
It was in 1994 when Robb started looking for artist to rhyme over tracks he created. His first record was released in 1995 on an independent label and received light rotation on New York's HOT 97 with Angie Martinez and medium video rotation on BET. This led to remix work for other independent labels.
In 1998 Robb-O moved to Atlanta to record a project and ended up staying for three years. Urged by his new friend DjMichaelAlan he started spinning on the A town underground scene under the moniker of DJ Bruce Banner.
He held a residency at the Yin Yang Cafe with Kembo's weekly ELEVATION night and parlayed that into larger events held at Club Kaya and MJQ Concourse. He has performed DJ sets for Julie Dexter, Earthseed, Lyricist Lounge, Jamaroqui and others.
In 2000 Robb ended up in Maryland with the intent to return to New York, but God had different plans.
" I didn't have a relationship with God... but the desire to play music in the clubs was not there anymore. I slowed down with deejaying clubs and focused more on making music just for the love of the game."
Then he went to church and realized that he was failing in his walk with God. "I got saved in 2003 and I thought I couldn't deejay or make music any more. I completely stopped not knowing that God had a plan!"
Out of the blue he received an email about the Holy Hip Hop conference in Atlanta and that opened a whole new world of music that Robb did not know about. He started meeting artist in the DMV area and was recruited by a group named "Spittin Image". He produced two songs on their maxi single that got airplay on DC's Heaven 1580 and WHUR Howard University Radio.
During this time he performed events at Evangel Cathedral, Ebenezer AME Church in Fort Washington and Empowerment Temple. He has also held a residency for Washington DC CHRISTIAN HANG SUITE's FIRST SUNDAY events where he performed alongside Jonathan Nelson, Papa San, Byron Cage and Canton Jones.
In 2006 he started Avalanche Music and became involved with music and radio production for various clients in the DMV area. A few artist that received significant success was "Von Vargas" with his GOVERNMENT OFFICIAL project and Toe to Toe recording artist "ASON". Through networking it eventually lead him to be chosen to tour with Cross Movement recording artist "Da Truth".
During his 3-4 year run on the road he has performed on MTV, BET and The Stellar Awards for a variety of artist including Kenny Lattimore, Kirk Franklin and Lecrea.
At the end of 2009 there was an abrupt stop to Da Truth's performance schedule that left Robb-O with a wealth of learning experiences and time to focus on his responsibilities and career goals.
Still working on tracks and producing a few artist Robb continued to entertain and in 2012 began spinning on internet radio mix shows. In 2014 he formed the music group EYNSTINE with vocalist LaVeda Davis and released "Just A Little Help" on the South African label Lilac Jean.
In 2016 Robb started his own label MDCCCVI Music (pronounced 18 oh Six) and with the same group secured a deal with Seaspray Entertainment / San Juan Music for an EP called BEAUTIFUL LIFE.
Over the past three years MDCCCVI has release over 6 dance tracks that have made a noticeable dents in the soulful house community. Currently he maintains a weekly soulful house broadcast that is appropriately entitled "THE DJ ROBB-O SHOW". It's aired on 2 internet stations with talks of syndication. He also spins an open format of music that includes Classic Rock, Soca, Calypso, Hip Hop and R&B.
In 2018 his production efforts has been to focus on DJ ROBB-O. His first release has proven that with hard work things can get better. His latest single, MARVIN has been placed in medium rotation on various mix shows including international broadcast.
Expect to hear more music from his label as he continues to mix on various radio platforms, clubs and events.
