DJ Ace Wants To Take The Party Throwing Throne

Published

on

DJ Ace is a New Jersey resident that has transitioned into one of the biggest party DJs on the east coast. Born in Franklinville, his parents helped him grow his love for music. They played jams throughout the house and car. They also gave him his first set of equipment to help strengthen his skills as a disc jockey. Where he is from, it is not easy to stay out of trouble. His love for music kept him in the house and out of harm’s way. In 2014, he knew he was ready to go when he was asked to do a Sweet 16 party. From there, he was able to book gigs all over his area. He used his checks from his gigs to improve the quality of his DJ equipment often.

After taking over his area, he even started getting booked at a local University named Rowan. His popularity skyrocketed there and helped him become one of the first black DJs in Atlantic City. His awesome work ethic led him to DJ for the Platinum-selling artist PNB Rock.   The following year, he once again found himself rubbing elbows with some of rap’s biggest names, including A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie and fellow Highbridge label mate Don Q. He even got a chance to DJ a celebrity basketball game at Temple University. As of late, he was even around for King Von’s 2 AM visual!

As an A&R, Ace is taking an uncommon approach to finding new talent. Instead of scouting social media for unsigned artists with massive followings, he has his eyes set on underdogs in the music producer realm. With this approach in mind, Ace has already successfully signed the first producer, D-Mac, to his More To Life imprint. While D-Mac has composed records for Rod Wave and G-Herbo, he is still widely unknown, which is one key element that Ace is committed to changing. Aside from signing superior acts, he successfully brought together DJ XO and rapper Rap So Wavy for his first production credit, a single titled “Vacation,” which has attracted over 1 million streams across multiple platforms.

In five short years, Ace has crafted a unique lane in the artistry of deejaying, which has afforded him a reputation encased in professionalism and immense talent. As he enters the next phase of his lucrative career, the widely respected crowd-pleaser turned hitmaker ensures that he becomes an international phenomenon along with the signees on his roster for decades to come.

Meet Virginia Beach Native DRE-SKI: An Emerging Artist Ready to Take Over the Rap Scene

Published

on

Up-and-coming rapper DRE-SKI is no stranger to the world of hip-hop! Growing up in
the neighborhood of “Campus East”, DRE-SKI, whose real name is Mondre, would
listen to a lot of rap, including Jay-Z, DMX, Dip Set, Nas and Biggie. After graduating
high school, the Virginia Beach native got into music by writing raps over instrumentals
and would have his friends listen to them. But it wasn’t until he attended college and
opened up for Lupe Fiasco and Fabolous that people, including his friends, started
taking him seriously.


In 2012, DRE-SKI took a break from music and four years later, he hopped right back
in and started his own independent record label/brand, “XB Music Group”. Between
2016 and 2019, the rapper put out a few mixtapes – “Calm Your Taste Budz 2 & 3” and
“Keep The Change 1 & 2”. In 2019, he debuted his first EP, “Long Story Short” and in
2020, he dropped two different EPs, titled “Game 6” & “4 Real Ones Only”. His music is
available on all digital streaming platforms (Apple, Spotify, Tidal, Google Play).

DRE-SKI has always been passionate about music. Some of his musical influences are
Jay-Z, J. Cole, Fabolous, Pusha –T, Ace Hood and Moneybagg Yo. And just like these
artists, he’s looking to influence others with his music, engage with his audience and
build a solid, long-lasting fanbase. His versatility and lyrical ability make him stand out
from others, while his work ethic is impeccable. DRE-SKI is currently working on his
next EP, “Turning Point”, but he hopes to release a few singles by this summer. He’s
also working with a few music producers, one of them being Jay Uncut from Atlanta,
and EK from Virginia Beach. When he isn’t making music, DRE-SKI is focusing on his
next moves.


As an entrepreneur, he would like to sign emerging artists onto his record label and give
them the opportunity to propel their music careers. Outside of music, he is a realtor, a
real estate investor and the owner of a trucking company. Aside from working on his
new EP, DRE-SKI is looking to network a lot more so he can expand his brand.


Check out two of his music videos out now and get the latest on the rapper on all social
media platforms.
