Born and raised in the birthplace of Hip-Hop, Bronx-bred DJ SHOW fell in love with DJ-ing at an early age. He cites his mentor DJ Joey O, along with acts like Kid Capri, Funk Flex, DJ S&S and DJ Camilo as strong influences who turned him to this passion. At the age of 13, after SHOW’s parents bought him his first set of turntables, it became clear that his hobby could turn into a full-blown career. In 2003, advancing his studies at the State University of New York at Albany, SHOW’s run as a DJ in New York at local events expanded. He became the Urban Music Director at the college’s radio station, WCDB. He also split his time between Albany and the Big Apple by DJing sets in nightclubs in New York City, and also spun for other colleges in New York State like Syracuse University, SUNY-Binghamton, Utica College, and SUNY-New Paltz. While receiving his Bachelor’s Degree in Communications and Business, he (along with DJ Playboy) co-founded Money Talks Entertainment, where they worked to produce and distribute two mixtapes throughout the Capital Region: The Takeover Hip-Hop Series and Grown and Sexy R&B Series. Later on, MTE recruited DJ Sunkiss, and together, the trio worked to dominate the Albany DJ scene, adding The Pull It Up Reggae mixtape series and The Art of Intimacy R&B slow jams series to their collection, which has seen regional distribution and international attention. For close to the past five years (currently), SHOW has been at the helm of Albany’s Hot 99.1 FM’s (WQSH-HD2) The HOTness Radio Show, every weekday night from 7pm to midnight, which features the Hot 7 at 7 Countdown, Heat Wave Commercial Free Mix Show and New at 10. To listen, hit up Hot991.com and the Hot 99.1 FM app on your smartphone. One of the best DJs in New York, while slightly reserved and laid back when he’s not on the 1’s and 2’s, DJ SHOW knows how to turn it on to give the people what they want.

“Trip”: Ella Mai’s or Jaquees’?
If you were lucky enough to get a hold of Jacquees' version before the cease and desist, congratulations. You can't find it ANYWHERE on the net. Some say that Jacquees' version of the Ella Mai track was taken down only because "Jacquees' version is better", and not because of legalities between doing a cover of the song and actually trying to monetize it by "making it your own"
