Profile:
DJ Sinestro is one of the DC/Baltimore area's most loved DJ/Producer’s. With over Eighteen years’ experience and countless parties, club nights, and special events under his belt, it is no wonder people are talking. His mixing style is like none other in the US. Combining elements of Techno, House, Electro, Break Beats, and off the wall tracks, he is best known for live performances that span 8 to 9 different genres. Combining the ability to go through records at a fast pace (one of his mix CD’s had an amazing 42 tracks in an hour!) and reading crowd response to enable him to play the right tracks at the right times. This eclectic style is a direct response drawn from influential DJ/Producers like Richie Hawtin, DJ Dan, Jeff Mills, Terry Mullan and Laurent Garnier, to rock and hip-hop artists like Devo, Bad Brains, Beastie Boys, Run DMC, Public Enemy, and a huge helping of underground and pop culture.

Alone or as part of "Archon" with JonnyC, Sinestro always pushes the boundaries and does what he love’s best which is making people dance. Sinestro’s career highlights include his 2nd place finish at the 1997 Buzz/Fever DJ Contest (beating out such talented DJ’s as Wilhelm K, TY-T, J Smooth, and Prime Mover). Sinestro’s huge DC fan base and kinetic skills have landed him as a headliner or support act for some of the biggest names in electronica including Carl Cox, Josh Wink, Richie Hawtin, Mixmaster Mike (Beastie Boys), Superstar DJ Keoki, Bad Boy Bill and far too many more to name.
With so many DJ’s popping out on the scene these days, Sinestro realized the need to separate himself from the competition. One way was to produce and promote his own events. As a promoter, Sinestro has produced and promoted countless successful events and club nights over a 12-year span. Another weapon in Sinestro’s arsenal has been his amazing skills as a producer and A&R man. With continued DIY passion, Sinestro released his first record on his Random Recordings label in '96, Released a collaboration with Frankie Bones on Hard to Swallow records, released another record on the syndicate recordings with Miah and Simon and finally released a new EP through Woody Mcbride’s seminal imprint Communique recordings. Sinestro helped run a crew of top DC area DJ’s to perform as part of The Syndicate, his management company with partner DJ Miah and worked alongside legendary DJ/Promoters Scott Henry and John Tab at the world-renowned Buzz nightclub in Washington DC, frequently rocking crowds there. Week after week he continues to amaze crowds and press alike wherever he may be.
