DJ BIG WIZ started DJing in late ‘83. Since that time, he’s worked as a DJ in various capacities including community and college radio shows as well as at one of the biggest commercial radio stations in the US. Big Wiz was also down with two of the original 3 groups on the Rap-A-Lot Records (home of the Ghetto Boys) in the mid to late 80's. WIZ has spun at clubs around the world and has DJ'd for various musical acts.


Moving from Houston to New York in 1996, WIZ quickly made his name known in the battles scene during the golden age of DJ battles with his crew the SteelWorkerz and he has appeared in several DJ/Turntabelist videos. As the in-house DJ for the independent hip hop label Def Jux, he’s mixed for EL-P, Cage, Mr. Lif and everyone else on the label. He is currently DJing for Aesop Rock and just finished touring this past year in the US and abroad. Making appearances on MTV, Fuel TV and rocking festivals such as Coachella, Sound Set, Treasure Island Music Festival and more, WIZ has earned his moniker, proving to be a true wizard on the tables.
