DJ Candeman, has been involved in music pretty much his entire life, in fact, he was born with a headset and a mixer. It’s was a difficult birth, but his mother survived and a new DJ was born. Music has been more than just a hobby for Candeman, it has been a passion, but his dream to be a back-up dancer for Vanilla Ice was dashed after a football injury, so a new dream of working in radio came to life. For the past 16 years, he has been spinning music and chatting on the mic for family, friends, high schools and weddings. DJ Candeman attended the American Broadcasting School and continues to work as a personal DJ for parties and events all around the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex.
Born and raised in Texas I (DjD) has been a fan and follower of Electronic Dance Music (EDM) ever since the age of 13. “I got my first turntables when I was 15 and would purchase records from Bills Records and Tapes. I love the way a record sounds. Hearing the slight crackle of vinyl still gives me goosebumps! I still remember the days when my parents would tell me ‘Turn the music down!’ as if it were yesterday. Now in my early 40’s I get to enjoy all types of music with my 3 wonderful girls who I hope one day one of them will become a Dj! A lot has changed since that time now all my music collections is electronic (MP3) but I still have a pretty large record collection consisting of retro to house to DnB (Drum and Bass). Today I would say my taste is the same as it was when I was 13 but not so focused on one genre. I listen to everything from pop to rap to (EDM) and even mashups. My days of being a club Dj are long gone but I still do private events and the ‘Candeman Show’ and enjoy having an outlet to express my musical side to anyone that is willing to listen.” Join them on Wednesday mornings from 9am to 11am CST in the Grey Bowl on www.fbrn.us , for a few hours of fast music, mad talking, and if you’re lucky nobody will get hurt.
