A sleeper in the Midwest, DJ MetroGnome is carrying Indianapolis on his back. Representing the school of thought that quality music deserves being in heavy rotation, you can find him at any one of his weekly residencies dropping gems. Whether it be boom bap hip hop, dusty funk, undeniable reggae & dancehall, feel-good house, relaxing down-tempo and soul, future classics or random throwbacks from decades prior, you will find yourself moving to or inspired by the music. Having established himself as Indy’s “go-to” DJ for many of the city’s best parties, special events, concerts, and countless clubs, both locally and nationally, he is always providing an outlet for the people to experience an alternative to the mundane, copy-cat ways found far too often in the nightlife and music scenes. Spinning records has also taken him across the country, playing in venues in many cities and states, as well as sharing the stage with icons Rakim, Ghostface, Charlie Wilson of the Gap Band, Lupe Fiasco, Bilal, Foreign Exchange, Blackstar, Dwele, Eric Roberson, Talib Kweli, Mobb Deep, Slum Village, Devin the Dude, Method Man, Big Krit, Currensy, Oddisee and many others. Additionally, as owner of Deckademics DJ School and part of Old Soul Entertainment, MetroGnome has conceptualized and created countless special events and themed parties, learning the art of pulling in the people. Likewise, DJ MetroGnome has forged a strong relationship with Red Bull as the primary DJ for Indiana as well as being selected to represent the Red Bull Music Academy. Additional clients include Adidas, LRG, Budweiser, Butler Toyota Scion, Formula 1, USA Track & Field, McDonalds, Indiana Black Expo, Rocksmith Tokyo, and many others.
