Welcome to the R.O.A.D. Podcast. The show that gives you unfiltered opinions from the eyes and ears of 4 seasoned DJ’s from the Las Vegas nightclub industry. DJ Crooked and DJ Neva come to us by way of New York; Manhattan and The Bronx respectively. Both relocated to Vegas in the early 2000’s to open, what was then, Light and Jet Nightclub. Crooked is known for his work horse mentality, and high energy DJ sets, but has never been one for the industry politics. While DJ Neva has earned his OG status due to his countless years of experience in the DJ game. In 2007, they brought a piece of home with them by founding KNYEW (acronym for “Keeping New York Every Where), a successful clothing brand, the first of its kind to be seen in Las Vegas. Similarly, both D-Miles and Jaime Da Great grew up in the LA. Jaime, while making a huge name for himself in the sneaker industry, has shifted his focus into becoming a full time DJ. D-Miles climbed the ranks by opening for the industry’s hottest DJ’s and making a name for himself in the process. This collective group of men are known for being some of the most honest and transparent people in the industry. It is that very integrity, mixed with their backgrounds in music, fashion and sneaker culture that brings a no nonsense perspective to every topic they address.

I take back my previous comment

Great content all the way through, listened to more episodes and I realized it’s not so much hate, as it is devils avocet. That’s my bad. Keep it up

A pleasure to listen to...

As a veteran dj, it's great to hear these seasoned experts talk about the craft but more importantly, all the other components of the biz that may be overlooked. Having just discovered this podcast, it made me greatful that these guys put in the effort of producing quality content. Great interviews and great topics. I'm a new fan for life.
