Playing in a tearing, Hi-energy style of drum and bass, DJ Seen has proven, hands-down, that he can move any crowd. Whether it be his airtight mixing, his wicked throw-ins, or the pure quality of his selection, Seen is all about business. Due to his frequent appearances and dramatic response at top parties, the name DJ Seen has become synonymous with NYC drum and bass. Seen began co-producing with Pish Posh in 1999, bringing his dance floor expertise and fresh ideas to the studio of the American pioneer. Making a rumble from the get go with tunes released on Rawkuts/Rawkus, set the stage for DJ Seen to team with Pish Posh and Chris Thomas as The Burner Brothers. The Burner Brothers have set the pace for Stateside drum and bass, with a stream of floor stormers getting instant approval in their own DJ sets, and play from top UK and US selectors. In the year 2000 DJ Seen added the title of Label Manager of Rawkuts to his credentials, as he attended to the speedy revival of the imprint as an international force until its demise due to corporate take over of the mother label Rawkus. In a city so full of talented DJs, Seen stands out with his hard work, skill, and his infectious festive spirit.
