WeknowtheDJ Spotlight: Our DJs

June 2, 2017

Here at WeKnowTheDJ, we spend a lot of time highlighting other DJs and musicians, but we don’t always spend time recognizing our very own DJs – DJ Tay James, DJ Bonics, and DJ Mo Beatz, but we’re going to change that today! 

DJ Tay James

DJ Tay James isn’t new to the game by any means. Hailing from Baltimore, Maryland (hometown, represent!) and beginning his DJ career in his teens, he hasn’t slowed down at all. DJ Tay James first landed DJ gigs as a teen, and then started DJing clubs while in college. Right before he was to graduate from school, Tay got a call from a friend asking if he would like to be the touring DJ and MC for Justin Bieber in 2009, and the rest is history. While touring for Justin, he’s continued playing his own shows and hold residencies, host a radio show, release mixtapes, and most recently, launch a clothing line. Does he ever sleep?!

Most recently, he has been headlining nightclubs and maintaining his residencies at Playhouse in LA, FLUXX in San Diego, Musik in Toronto, and Prive in Atlanta. In February of this year, the WKTDJ Radio Volume 7 mixtape was dropped. Soon, he’ll be headed on tour with Justin Bieber for dates in Europe, as well as a few in the US.


DJ Bonics

DJ Bonics is a hip-hop DJ, and the DJ for Wiz Khalifa. Raised in Philadelphia, radio and music both have been big influences on his life. He started his DJ career being an on-air DJ in Pittsburgh, and continued to DJ in clubs all around the city as well. Between his radio and live DJ career, he became the most popular DJ in the city. In 2010, he changed direction and started to tour with Wiz Khalifa to become his official DJ, and has been touring since. He also continues to be a part time DJ for stations across the country. DJ Bonics also hasn’t lost touch of his roots – he continues to give back to the community by DJ community and charity events, offering DJ workshops to kids, and advocating for healthy lifestyles. You can catch DJ Bonics on tour with Wiz Khalfia, who will be playing a ton of festivals around the world this summer.


DJ Mo Beatz

DJ Mo Beatz is a DJ, producer, on air-mixer and DJ, and the official DJ for Big Sean. At an early age, his love for music pulled him towards being a DJ, and that’s where the love started. His experience being an on air-mixer and DJ has offered him many opportunities – including becoming a sought-after DJ for concerts and parties for some of music’s biggest names. Besides Big Sean of course, some of these names include: Lil Wayne, Soulja Boy, Bow Wow, Wiz Khalifa, and Gucci Mane. DJ Mo Beatz just wrapped up a spring tour with Big Sean, which stopped at 22 cities.


All of these DJs seem to never stop! Do any of them sleep?! Regardless, we are proud of what they do, and look forward to what is to come for each of them.
