DJ LiL' Cee
It’s not easy to get noticed for your talent and to become a household name in the city that never sleeps. DJ Lil Cee’s work ethic and drive has never been caught sleeping though, landing him on not one, but two of the biggest radio stations in the largest media market in the country. Now millions of people hear Lil Cee on the airwaves during their evening drive home on 92.3 NOW FM, not an easy task by any means, but Lil Cee has done it with poise and zeal, always looking for another challenge.
New York City native Ceasar Reznik, aka DJ Lil Cee, knew from an early age that he wanted to be a part of the music industry. At the age of tender age of 16 he had already started spinning records, and passionate obsession with music led him to sneaking into the biggest clubs in New York City. His ardent persistence paid off one night when he got into the world famous nightspot Limelight, and had the chance to spin on the club’s infamous turntables. That single experience motivated Lil Cee even more to make it in the music business.
Lil Cee’s first step in scaling the New York scene and music industry was to become a top radio personality on the #1 Dance Music Radio Station in the world, 103.5 FM – WKTU in the country’s biggest market – New York. While scratching his mark into the dance music scene at KTU, he joined the XM Satellite Radio family on XM’s Channel 81: BPM; This opportunity finally allowing him to not only generate a solid fan base in the Big Apple, but all across the country. He quickly became known for his infectious personality & white-hot mix shows, generating enough buzz to catch the attention of record label executives. Soon he was approached by the legendary Tommy Boy record label to put out a series of CD compilations: His debut CD titled Dance Mix Vol.6 & his follow up CD Dance Mix 7 on Tommy Boy Records both had impressive debuts in the Top Ten on the BILLBOARD Dance/Electronica charts. After releasing two very successful CD’s on Tommy Boy Lil Cee got an offer he could not refuse. He was offered a lucrative deal with one of the biggest dance labels in America and internationally, ULTRA records. His debut CD on ULTRA Records entitled “Ultra Weekend 2″ has become his biggest CD to date, debuting in the top 5 on the BILLBOARD Dance/Electronica charts and remained in the top ten nearly the entire summer it was released.
With his CD compilations’ successes and widespread notoriety, the ears of the radio, music & nightlife industry were fixated on Lil Cee. Soon requests for LiL Cee to become resident DJ at some of the hottest clubs in NYC, New Jersey and the surrounding areas were pouring in, and he soon became a commodity at various nightclubs in the Tri-State area. He’s held DJ residencies at New York’s legendary WebsterHall, as well as vibrant nightspots all over the tri-state and abroad such as: Bliss (Clifton, NJ), Lana Lounge (Hoboken, NJ), Club Xs (Seaside Heights, NJ), Posh (Long Island) ,Club DNA (Astoria Queens NY), CM Lounge in (Woodbridge NJ), & Park Ultra Lounge (Sacramento California).
Lil Cee’s contagious personality has been heard on New York’s WKTU, San Francisco/Sacramento’s Movin 99.7/100.5 FM. He currently can be heard in New York, back to the city of his roots, every weekday from 3p-7p on NOW-FM, 92.3, one of the most popular stations in the market.
He continues to bring zeal and determination to the radio and music industry, setting the bar higher and higher each year, and still bringing the same passion to the microphone or turntables.
