DJ Swift Bio
"When the dream is big enough, the facts don’t count."
These words have been the true driving force for The Untouchable DJ Swift during his past 17 years of DJ’ing. The music industry has truly been blessed with one of the most artistic, energetic and talented DJ’s known to mankind. Born and raised in Winston-Salem, North Carolina USA, Swift began his career at the age of 12 when he fell in love with music and the art of DJ’ing at his middle school dance. His lack of popularity in middle and high school fueled his passion for bringing the hottest music to the streets and being the best at it. Swift started DJ’ing at local house parties, teen dances, wedding receptions and social functions.
In 1996, DJ Swift purchased his first set of Technics 1200’s and began rigorous practicing into the late hours of the night, perfecting his skills to become one of the illest party-rockers. Shortly after graduation from high school, he took his music career to the streets by shutting down clubs and college parties with his style of DJ’ing that was sure to make you dance.
Thru the years, Swift’s showmanship and energy brought him more attention from promoters as well as radio personalities and DJ’s. His expertise and professionalism has employed him as tour DJ for Levi Little of Blackstreet and American Idol winner Fantasia Barrino which has taken him across the United States and worldwide. He has opened for some of the industry’s most elite artists such as the late Big Punisher, Fat Joe, Jagged Edge, Youngbloodz, Bone Thugs, Nice & Smooth, Mad Lion, The Diplomats, Trillville, Blood Raw of U.S.D.A, Shawty Lo, Plies, The Last Poets and Jodeci. Swift has also had the pleasure of sharing the stage with some of the most recognized DJ’s that have also made their mark in the music industry. They include Funk Master Flex, DJ Clue, & DJ S&S.
In March 2001, Swift took over the airwaves as he set the streets of Fayetteville, NC and surrounding areas on fire DJ’ing Friday nights on WZFX Foxy 99.1 FM. While at Foxy 99, Swift landed a spot as a DJ on AOL Radio where his mixes were heard worldwide. With the desire to be more involved in his kids’ lives Swift ended his two-year residency on air at Foxy 99 shortly before the birth of his son. Nevertheless, DJ Swift continued to blaze the streets with his legacy of memorable events. Over the most recent years, DJ Swift has also made a home as a mixer on WIIZ 97.9 for Club 979 Friday nights in Blacksburg, South Carolina and WJMH 102.1 Jamz in Greensboro, NC.
