DJ Bobby Metro, the All-Star of DJ’ing, has roots in the boroughs of both Brooklyn and Queens. The 36-year-old turntablist had it tough growing up; but, when he first laid his hands on two tables and a mixer, he realized the path he was destined to follow. He began taking it seriously around the age of 17 – and hasn’t looked back since.Metro has noted that his direct Influences were not specifically DJ’s, but rather famous singers, dancers, songwriters, producers, average musicians – even Broadway performers. His wide-ranging tastes are what drives his eclectic and diverse crates. You can catch Metro spinning just about anything. He truly musical genre borders, and his DJ passport has the stamps to prove it.
As Metro became a more aggressive working DJ — constantly on the road — he studied experts from his era. Names like Kid Capri, DJ Red Alert, DJ Delano from Rennasaince Sound Systems, Funk Flex, DJ Spinbad, DJ Skribble, Stone Love Selectors, DJB, DJ Jazzy Joyce, DJ Spindarella, Tiesto, Junior Vasquez, and others, have all provides inspiration and motivation to excel in the field.
Metro has spun at private parties and major nightclub hotspots around New York. He hosts his own radio show and has produced some notable remixes, such as “Memories” by Beenie Man and “Saddest Day” by Wayne Wonder on the Showtime Riddim, not to mention his live remixes as heard on his Compilations. It’s performing live, though, when Metro is truly at his finest. As he remarks, “Most of my best DJ’ing is done live for either small or large crowds, including live-on-air at a large event or radio station.”
