Sought after for his internationally-acclaimed mixes and dynamic club sets alike, Run P. sincerely respects the craft of DJ’ing, and is guaranteed to move every crowd.
A widely respected DJ, Run P. is also an on-air personality (radio) and music supervisor at the forefront of NYC’s future bass movement. Founder of QUENCH, a monthly dance party at the intersection of progressive soul and future bass, Run P. champions the electronic sounds and thorough basslines of house, R&B, hip-hop, funk, dancehall, afrobeat, and more. Sought after for his internationally-acclaimed mixes and dynamic club sets alike, Run has garnered a reputation as a seasoned crowd-motivator who respects the craft and values the legacy of the DJ.
For the last four years, Run has offered fans a more in-depth experience of their favorite albums and artists via his Samples Mix series project. With rare samples uncovered coupled alongside exclusive artist interviews, Run sheds light on the creative process and underlying themes of the album. Since 2013, the samples treatment has been given to Kendrick Lamar’s DAMN., Beyoncé’s Lemonade, Kanye West’s The Life of Pablo, J. Cole’s Forest Hills Drive, A Tribe Called Quest’s We Got it From Here…Thank You 4 Your Service, and more. Built for the producer, fan, and casual listener, the series continues to expand the palette of audiophiles worldwide.
Righteous Jones, another concept mix series by Run P., revolves around social justice, weaving socially-conscious music alongside thought-provoking audio from the most prolific voices of the past and present. Through this series he gives a platform to the voiceless while providing insight on the shortcomings of society, especially those of injustice and inequality.
Simply said, what began at 11 years-old after his mother bought him his first Numark turntables persisted and evolved Run P. into an artist on the tables. Run would cop vinyl from the local record shop and quietly hone his skills — practicing, perfecting his craft, experimenting with sounds from all across the musical divide. It’s this unwillingness to be anything other than himself, coupled with a high level of artistry (and deep knowledge of music) across multiple formats, genres, and platforms that resolutely separates him from the pack.
So whether it’s his Samples Mix series, SXSW, Le Pompon in Paris, a dinner party for Kelis, or curating music for UnitedMasters, Run understands that style and showmanship must come first. His distinct approach to creating unforgettable dance experiences is unparalleled because your experience, his experience…THE experience is paramount.
