Winner of Vocalo Radio’s 2013 “Quest For The Best DJ” battle, DJ Bizzon’s creative turntablism skills, original production and hands-on style has made him one of the Midwest’s most sought- after DJs. He’s opened for or performed with artists including Kendrick Lamar, Baauer, Mac Miller, ?uestlove, Just Blaze, Naughty By Nature, People Under The Stairs and DJ Abilities. From the songs you’ve heard to bangers you haven’t, Bizzon prides himself on rocking the party without compromising artistic music selection. The same work ethic and originality that make him a standout on the turntables carry through to his other roles in music – radio host, music columnist, event organizer and youth work professional.
In addition to DJing, Bizzon co-hosts Those Hip Hop Guys Radio on WMSE 91.7FM, Milwaukee’s only all underground and old school hip-hop radio show. He’s a member of Vocalo Radio’s DJ collective, which broadcasts on Chicago’s 90.7FM and Indiana’s 89.5FM. He created and writes for JSOnline’s Those Hip Hop Guys Blog, the only column in a major Wisconsin publication focused on hip-hop culture. He is also a youth work professional with experience in teaching DJ classes, directing youth programming, creating and leading workshops, writing grants and organizing fundraising events and concerts. All of these projects are inspired by his mission to put musical diversity and real choice back into people’s hands, rather than letting mainstream media dictate what defines good music.
To advance that mission and make greater use of the countless hours he spends researching new, rare and independent music, Bizzon also created his instantly popular and growing mixtape series. What started as a showcase of the best in rare and new hip-hop has been expanded to highlight funky music of all genres as well as his original production, remixing and technical skills.
