DJ Neil Armstrong

Long before he was Jay Z's tour DJ for all of 2008 and 2009, or a Global Brand Ambassador for Adidas for 2010, Neil Armstrong was a humble fan of music. And he has never changed…

Acknowledged as the founding father of the DJ Collective the "5th Platoon", Neil was born and breed in NYC, cutting his teeth in the early 90's during the era of backpack Hip-Hop and the art of Turntablism. His time spent in the trenches battling and mastering the art of spinning allowed him to rock shows alongside artists across the Hip-Hop spectrum—from De La Soul, The Roots, Company Flow and Biz Markie, to Kanye West, LL Cool J, Busta Rhymes and Wyclef Jean; he was also a member of the critically acclaimed 2 time Grammy-Nominated jazz band Russell Gunn and Ethnomusicology, playing alongside iconic musicians Kenny Garrett (a member of Miles Davis' band) and Brandford Marsalis.

Over the last 11 years, he has made an indelible mark in the sub-genre of Hip-Hop known as "Mixtape Culture." Neil's highly-regarded mixtapes represent his eclectic music taste and have generated considerable press, mostnotably in Rolling Stone, Vibe, MTV.com, Theme, URB and Complex.

Neil has traveled the globe for an array of club appearances and events. He has been the NBA's DJ of choice for their Rookie Shootout since 2006 and he has performed in Stockholm, Finland, Norway, Ireland, Holland, Poland, Belgium, Iceland, Nigeria, Germany, Vancouver, Toronto, the Phillipines, China, Singapore, Taiwan, Shaun Burton and Tokyo, just to name a few spots.

2008 through 2009 was an amazing period for DJ Neil Armstrong. He traveled with Jay-Z to Washington D.C. to perform at Barack Obama's Inauguration Ball and when he was tapped by Jay-Z to be his official World Tour DJ, Neil was catapulted into the highest-regard in the Hip-Hop world. He held it down without question.

From rocking in front of over 100,000 fans at the Glastonbury Festival, to anchoring a performance on the Letterman Show, to pumping with ice-cold veins at Madison Square Garden (three consecutive shows no less), DJ Neil Armstrong is now in the highest strata of DJ existence.

And even though he can now been seen in videos with Jay-Z and Mary J. Blige, has spun for adidas at the Olympic Games in Beijing, has shared the stage with Rihanna, Beyonce, Kanye West, Young Jeezy, Swiss Beats, Puff Daddy, Timbaland, Bun B, Memphis Bleek, EPMD, and Method Man, or performed alongside Slayer, Interpol, The Cool Kids, Common, Neil Young, Mark Ronson, Coldplay, NERD, and Linkin Park, Neil is as humble and focused as ever.

DP One

Born, raised, and still residing in Brooklyn, Daniel A. Pinero p.k.a DP One has spent most of his life immersed in Hip Hop. As a DJ, b-boy, and even occasionally lacing the mic with some rhymes as an emcee, he puts an immense amount of effort into keeping Hip Hop moving in a positive direction. Besides spinning at parties and b-boy jams in NYC, he serves as a resident DJ of an internet radio show, and has toured internationally with notable artists such as Estelle, John Legend, J-Live, Q-Unique, and Wordsworth. He is also involved in various high-profile events such as the upcoming Red Bull BC One battle, which will be held in New York City and hosted by KRS One.

DJ ECLIPSE

Nobody plays official hip hop music better than the legendary DJ Eclipse; La Coka Nostra DJ, Rock Steady Crew member, Fat Beats veteran, and former Non Phixion DJ. Every Sunday night, DJ Eclipse balances out the game with the best independent and commercial music, along with surprise guests on the Rap Is Outta Control show on Sirius/XM Radio (sirius.com/HipHopNation).
