Dallas would sound a whole lot different if not for DJ Sober.
The deejay, producer and illustrator has left an indelible mark on the city’s music scene over the last decade, from launching the influential soirees The Party and Big Bang! to cooking up remixes and party records as one half of production duo Booty Fade. Along the way, he’s played Cowboys and FC Dallas games, spun private affairs for heavy hitters Erykah Badu and Dirk Nowitzki, thrown birthday bashes and pop-ups with Leon Bridges, and toured the country as the former DJ for rap group A.Dd+. All the while, he’s brought his distinctive taste and curatorial sensibilities with him, opening audiences’ ears to new sounds and ideas.
