DJ David Lam
Born in Los Angeles in 1986, raised in Austin, as a kid David loved electronic music, Power Rangers, breaking things, real fruit roll-ups, beaches, and all things California… the weather. He always had a fascination with music, the technicalities, and the sounds that go with it.
In 2000, with no musical background, some trial and error, a wee bit of creativity, patience, and some time, he created his first bootleg track (The song also became the first track on another DJ’s mixtape in the following months.) As time went on, friend and DJ, Tien (DJ SmoothT – Who also used one of DAVIDSG’s bootleg tracks on one of his mixtapes) began giving him Tips and Tricks for a better end result. As production got better he began sending them to DJ friends who in turn played them in their sets at gigs. DJing began shortly after thanks to DJ Dis B John, who loaned him his gear. After some practice, he began performing with friends in Austin’s downtown district at Empire, Paradox, and Skyy Bar to name a few. He has also performed in the top clubs with friends in Dallas including, Red Jacket, Liquid, Shadow Lounge, Area 51, and DNA. He also performed in Oklahoma City and Detroit. You can still find him DJing in Austin and the Dallas area.
DJ John Minh Hoang (Dis B John)
John started his musical journey at 5, playing on the piano. He grew up with classical music and played the violin for 8 years. In ’99, he got his first turntables with some buddies and hasn’t stopped since.
John grew up in the Dallas electronic dance music scene spinning trance and breakbeats and now spins all genres including Top 40, Dance, Hip Hop, and Retro. He has held many residencies and performed in the top clubs in Dallas including Karma, Sting, Blue, Che, Wish, Red Jacket, Liquid, 8 Lounge, Buddha 9, Shadow Lounge, Spy, M:5 (Area 51), and Bronco Bowl.
He has also been able to travel across the U.S. performing in many cities including Minneapolis, Wichita, Austin, Houston, New Orleans, Biloxi, Charlotte, Fayateville, OKC, Kansas City, and Atlanta. After 10 years of having multiple residencies weekly, he got burnt out and wasn’t enjoying deejaying as much. He took a much needed break and focused on his loved ones and career.
Now back with a re-invigorated passion, John can be seen spinning at private events, weddings, and local events.

DJ Johnny Nguyen (Phaze)
Born in Kansas, Johnny always had thing for music while growing up. Family was just too poor for him to play any instruments so he just learned to bang on pots, pans and air guitar with a fly swatter.
Johnny started promoting in 1998 with a few friends that went to college with him and shortly after picked up djing and was taught how so by a girl. Started off by playing breakbeats and ran with it by storm from 99-2003. In 2004, Johnny met David Lam and he taught him how to remix and Johnnny dedicated that time to remixing tracks into breaks. Johnny’s music choice now is hip hop, house, and with a little dubstep. He has Deejayed with fellow Dis B John, Devo, and many others throughout the club scene in Dallas from venues such as Red Jacket, Area 51, Blue, Liquid, 8 Lounge, Plush, and recently V Bar inside the Venetian hotel in Las Vegas.
Currently just promoting weekly events with his team and venturing into wedding entertainment. Johnny will occasionally dj at local events and sometimes in Las Vegas. Djing has a very special place in his heart. He tells himself that he will let it go someday, but he doesn’t see it happening anytime soon.
