DJ Bizzon’s creative turntablism skills, stylish music selection and original production have made him one of the Midwest’s most sought-after DJs. He’s opened for or performed with artists including Travis Scott, Kendrick Lamar, Future, Migos, Big Sean, Pitbull, Eric Roberson, Mac Miller, ?uestlove, Just Blaze, Naughty By Nature, People Under The Stairs and DJ Abilities. He co-hosts Those Hip Hop Guys Radio on WMSE 91.7FM in Milwaukee and is a member of Vocalo Radio’s DJ collective on WBEZ 91.1FM in Chicago. Bizzon 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’s also an activist, teacher, mentor and youth work professional who uses music to empower young people and create change in the community.
After years serving as an instructor and program director at different youth organizations, Bizzon founded The Scratch Sessions, a program providing free DJ and music production lessons, career training and mentorship to young people in Milwaukee. He teaches that same curriculum in Milwaukee Public Schools in an effort to expand access to arts education for underserved students. His expertise in designing programming, creating and leading workshops and organizing public events led to a national reputation in youth work and opportunities like the Lead Teaching Artist role at The Residency, Macklemore’s youth music program in Seattle.
