Playing an instrument in any form is not an easy task, especially for
a DJ. Skill and eye-hand coordination is key. The name FATFINGAZ
exemplifies that very notion hand control that equates the resulting
sound. Either cutting it up with precise ease or mastering the
attention of thousands of people at one time, DJ Fatfingaz is the
representation of a pure DJ. For the past 15 years and counting.

the
New York Native DJ Fatfingaz has immersed himself in practically every
aspect of DJ Culture. Making a name for himself as a force in the
industry, his foundation in technical art of party rocking is combined
with a background in technical skills. As a turntablist, DJ Fatfingaz

would say was the best New York regional to date along with Fatfingaz
both featured on the DMC USA 2008 & GONG DJ BATTLE 2006-2008. The name
grew from here as Fatfingaz linked up with the DMC World competition

renowned HIP-HOP promoter Christie Z Pabon, his work extended to djing
alongside A-List Crews such as The Big Dawg Pitbulls, The Heavy

with his root crew Introbass Productions (IBP). Honing his craft on

gaining press coverage on MTV, BET, The Source & XXL. Fatfingaz is
also noted by Royal Caribbean Cruise Line (Freedom of the Seas: one of
the biggest Cruise ships in the world) as their best DJ ever to
