representing the ’80s decade: DJ DAVE PAUL

For over 20 years, DJ Dave Paul has been an integral part of hip-hop and DJ culture. In the early ’90s, he launched the now legendary publication, The Bomb Hip-Hop Magazine, and in 1995, Paul transformed the magazine into a record label. The company was named “one of the fifteen independent labels that matter,” according to Rolling Stone, and the label’s Return of the DJ series was ranked by Spin Magazine as #25 in their “The 90 Greatest Albums of the ’90s” (Sept. 1999 issue), receiving a higher rating than Gold & Platinum albums by Lauryn Hill, Pearl Jam, Metallica, Green Day, and Fatboy Slim. Dave Paul has appeared on the front cover of Billboard magazine and is featured in the motion picture Scratch. Mr. Paul has DJ’ed throughout the US, toured Europe, released over 100 projects on his record label and currently produces theme parties.

representing the ’90s decade: DJ MARCO

Marco Rosario has hosted and thrown numerous parties along the east coast. Aside from providing tons of energy into every event he does, his musical knowledge and background makes for an incredible and eclectic mix for any event.
