On this week’s R.O.A.D. Podcast, the crew talks to their very own, DJ Neva. The New York native recalls growing up in the Bronx during the early park jam era and interacting with hip-hop icons, Kool DJ Red Alert and Lovebug Starski.
Neva also explains how he earned his first DJ residencies in New York City and why he relocated to Las Vegas to continue his career.

A former director of programming for the Wynn, Shecky played a key role in negotiating DJ AM’s groundbreaking deal with Las Vegas’ PURE Nightclub in 2006.
During the convo, the show’s co-host Crooked asked Shecky about how he helped broker the deal. Shecky discusses how the negotiations went down and how it raised the bar for DJs going forward. He also talks about how the death of AM marked the beginning of the EDM era.

In 2001, Fran moved to Las Vegas where he took his career to a new level. After holding it down in Sin City for over 15 years, Fran remains a staple in the scene. He’s currently a resident at Drai’s Nightclub and a host on Hot 97.5.
