A superstar deejay for the better part of a decade, twenty-two year old DJ Ruckus is now emerging as one of the most dynamic talents in today’s entertainment world. Ruckus, the cousin of rock icon Lenny Kravitz, was given turntables on his fourteenth birthday and took little time to establish an undeniable musical style and understanding.
By the time he was fifteen, Ruckus was a resident DJ at Crobar Miami playing to thousands of revelers each weekend at one of the world’s most exclusive clubs. Ruckus quickly garnered a celebrity following and the Atlanta native was soon traveling around the country spinning at hot sports on both coasts including New York’s Bungalow 8 and Los Angeles’ Sky Bar.
Ruckus’ career has blossomed far beyond nightclub events. Personally called upon by celebrities including Adrian Brody, Christina Aguilera, Diddy, Magic Johnson, and Steven Tyler to deejay their private parties, Ruckus also provides the music at exclusive parties for corporate clients including Calvin Klein, PlayStation, Prada, and Virgin and fashion shows and flim premiers around the world.
A rising star as a producer, Ruckus produced “Sexhibition” – an upcoming single from the Janet Jackson album to be released in March 2006. Ruckus has also remixed tracks for the likes of Macy Gray, TLC, Ice Cube, and Outkast. Signed to Ford Models, Ruckus is currently the face of Calvin Klein fragrance CK One. A budding actor, Ruckus can be seen on the big screen playing a leading role in the smash-hit drama “ATL”.
