Heavyness (adj.): “A deep stream of consciousness causing a person to lose themselves in a moment.”
It was his destiny to become a DJ, It runs in his veins…
If there was something consistent in Heavyness’ life it was music. His father, who had a great sense of musicality, introduced him to Djing as a child. His passion for the art took off from there. When Heavyness takes his place in the DJ booth he becomes one with the crowd. His goal is complex, but is consistently achieved: to concoct a stream of consciousness that causes people to lose themselves in the music.
Heavyness’ journey as a DJ began in high school but flourished when he went away to college at the Rochester Institute of Technology. He began taking over the local parties and became one of the top DJ’s in the area. He was often called to do local events and soon extended his reach to other cities, becoming a premier college DJ in Upstate New York.
