Some of you may know who DJ Orator is, some of you may not. But for us LA heads, and those who are LBC bound.. we consider him family. One thing I can say for this brotha here is that he’s paid his dues, and I’ve been around long enough to see that come to fruition. He’s been rockin’ crowds for the underground [purists], and now currently taking his skills to new heights with making a name for himself in the Hollywood scene.
To all you purists, before you even think about calling him a ‘sellout’, let’s keep it real here. He’s still 100% committed to where his heart is by being a guest DJ at random low-key spots and underground hiphop spots, but he knows where the money lies. You can’t be in the same place for a long time and not want to move forward. Either way it goes you gotta respect him. You cant sweat the technique. Peep the format:

Last month, he was one of the DJs that was on the bill for the LMNO Album Listening Party [which Ive posted here]. He also have a couple of weekly spots that he spins at, but if you want to check him out, check him out at the Arsenal on Saturdays in West LA. I even posted his events on the Weekend Events [below] if you want to check him out! Dont sleep!
Oh and one more thing.. well there’s two: here are some treats for you to download. The reason for the name of “Guys and Dolls” is because that’s the name of the theme of the club he spins at [ENTREE]. Keep doing your thing, man!
