ABOUT D-NICE:
Derrick “D-Nice” Jones, with a multi-decade music career that has taken him from the Apollo to Singapore, and seemingly everywhere in-between, can proudly say he’s earned it. At just 16 years old, D-Nice was a founding member of the iconic ’80s rap group, Boogie Down Productions. By 1990, he had a Billboard No. 1 single off his self-produced debut album, “Call Me D-Nice.” As the landscape of Hip-Hop, and New York itself, began to shift, D-Nice recognized the need to transcend. A proven talent behind the turntables, D-Nice sought a creative outlet in famed downtown clubs, such as Lotus and Table 50. The venues were pioneering DJs who were blending old school tracks and dance classics with the latest rock. It wasn’t long before he made a name for himself with a deejaying style that set him apart from all others. From Oscar night galas to the Super Bowl, or from Essence Fest to the legendary private parties thrown by Diddy, D-Nice could now be heard in places like Cannes, Singapore, South Africa and Miami. D-Nice discovered he not only possessed an ear for a mix, but an eye for capturing stunning images as well. Strapped with a Leica camera, from his expanding collection, he began documenting his life and travels through the lens of his camera. D-Nice moves seamlessly between gigs, whether he’s rocking the Apollo Theater’s Spring Gala with Stevie Wonder or shooting the campaign for Dave Chappelle’s Netflix comedy special. Currently, he is a brand DJ for Hennessy and holds a DJ residency at Atlantic City’s Borgata Hotel Casino. He has also had the distinct honor of spinning multiple times at the request of President Barack Obama, including President Obama’s 2012 Inaugural Ball. Positive and always creative, the father of two continues to evolve his BrandNice agency into new territory.
