(NEWARK, NJ) -- NJPAC's Sounds of the City kicks off on Thursday, July 2nd with a set of hip hop, R&B and house music spun by two DJs from right here in New Jersey: DJ Ran, who’s been keeping parties hopping from behind the turntables since he was a 10-year-old growing up in Irvington, NJ, from 7:00pm to 8:00pm, and DJ Wallah, a Newark native who bought his first set of turntables while he was still in high school, from 8:00pm to 9:00pm. The event will be shown on NJPAC's Facebook Page.
DJ Ran has brought the beat to clubs, campaign events — and he was even the first DJ to spin live in shopping malls, performing at Against All Odds stores around the country. DJ Wallah, a member of the Heavy Hitters DJ Crew, and can be currently heard on New York’s Hot 97 and BET’s show 106 and Park. He’s also been the host of our Sounds of the City concerts at NJPAC since 2013!
