Hailing from a small town in North Carolina, DJ AVI-X has come full circle as an artist and owner of Avi'ation Productions/Airstrike DJz. As a youth, he recognized that he had a deep passion for music. As early as middle school, DJ AVI-X began exploring his passion. In pursuit of understanding, he found a deep appreciation for all that music entails; the positive affect it has on people, the way it bridges generations and unites cultures. Music is not just about sounds, but creativity & expression. He recognized that music is an art that needs to be appreciated more and properly cultivated.
Coupled with his passion for people and music, DJ AVI-X began his journey to bring the two together in unity. He began collecting old records from his father and used those to create and blend different elements of music together. This allowed Avi the freedom to hone in on his skill set and cultivate his gift. Mastering the technical aspects of spinning and mixing, he created mix tapes for his friends and family on a daily basis, using any positive feedback or criticism as a way to improve his craft. He also did shows at local dances, clubs, house parties and private events. In doing so, he perfected his skills to fully represent himself as a DJ to the public.
Committed to seeing his gift materialize into a career, DJ AVI-X took the necessary steps to become educated in his craft. He attended the Chatty School of Communication, located in Charlotte, NC, where he graduated with a Major in Radio Communication. His professional journey began as an apprentice for The Incredible DJ Polo. After years of dedication, DJ AVI-X had the opportunity to advance his career by working with DJ Mars (CEO of World Famous Superfriend DJs), a globally known DJ Label. His talents were noticed by DJ Shakim (So So Def, Heavy Hitters and Superfriends DJs Labels), which lead to his addition to So So Def as a Mix Tape DJ.
DJ AVI-X established Avi'ation Productions/Airstrike DJz in 2007. The brand features a team of respected DJ's and similar professionals in the music and entertainment industry.
