Born and raised in Philadelphia, Dances with White Girls has been a musical force in the making since his earliest sonic experiments. The alchemy for this sound happening, could be found in grade school drum kits, fledgling rhyme books, block party hits and a booming late 90s hip hop landscape. As a teenager, sounds moved beyond early curiosities and began to form his identity. After finishing high school Dances headed 90 miles north to New York City. The Giuliani crackdown machine rumbled along and the last gasps of NYC’s storied club scene were sputtering out. This wasn’t the New York of old, but nature abhors a vacuum and something new was already bubbling beneath the surface. Bringing with him a thick Philly musical pedigree and a newfound supply of New York flash, a string of productions and remixes quickly followed. Combining a pounding dark beat with a catchy party vibe; the Dances With White Girls aesthetic spread quickly, far and wide. Likewise DJ sets with heavyweights such as DJ. T, Felix Da Housecat, Busy P and Mstrkft have made Dances a fixture on dancefloors across the City.
