At age 11, Beloved was an avid record collector and possessed a full DJ setup. By age 15, he was spinning at some of NJ’s local hotspots such as Visions, La Prairie, Sir Richards, Gregory’s, Club 88. Montclair, NJ’s posh Diva Lounge where the then twenty-something, DJ Beloved held down a six year residency and was the only DJ at Diva Lounge to showcase the club’s first “House Music All Night” affair to capacity crowds. Since then, he has played at such NJ events and venues as: Brokers, Red Parrot, Flava Lounge, Club Sensations, Harlem Club, Club Elevation, Exact Nature Club Movement, ThinkSoul, Humble Beginnings, Key Club and NYC events such as Club Cielo, Brooklyn Nights and Together In Spirit. He held down residencies at both the Starlite and Langston’s in both in Brooklyn, NYC, where he has his own bi-weekly event with Jihad Muhammad at Langston’s. He has played alongside some of dance music’s legendary DJ’s such as Naeem Johnson, Jellybean Benitez, DJ Disciple, Carlos Sanchez, Ruben Toro and Marlon D.
Currently, he is working on DJ Kevin Hedge and Louie Vega’s Roots NYC Live weekly Friday night mix show WBLS-FM 107.5 FM as an Assistant Music Programmer/Producer/Engineer.
