About DP ONE

Born, raised, and still residing in Brooklyn, New York, Daniel A. Pinero p.k.a DP One has spent most of his life immersed in Hip Hop. As a DJ, b-boy, and even occasionally lacing the mic with some rhymes as an emcee, he puts an immense amount of effort into keeping Hip Hop moving in a positive direction. Besides spinning at parties and b-boy jams around the New York City area as an active member of the Heavy Hitters and Turntable Anihilists, he serves as a resident DJ of two internet radio shows, and has toured internationally with notable artists such as Lauryn Hill, Estelle, John Legend, J-Live, Q-Unique, and Wordsworth. He has also been involved in various high-profile events such as the first Red Bull BC One battle in North America, which was held in New York City and hosted by KRS One.

Born in 1977, DP One began to hone his DJ skills at the young age of fourteen, in the midst of what many consider to be the “Golden Era” of Hip Hop. As a DJ he credits a lot of his foundation to the Alava family, who had the first DJ setup DP ever laid his eyes upon. It was with the Alavas that he deejayed his first house parties, which served as his first glimpses into life as a DJ. Additionally, DJ’s Enuff, Vandal, and Tchak Nasty introduced him to battle videos, taught him his first scratch patterns, and inspired him to enter his first competition. He was later exposed to b-boying by A-B-Girl of the Domestic Apes Crew, which proved to be advantageous to his career as a DJ. He became familiar with break beats and the type of music that brought out the best in various dancers, and applied this knowledge to spinning at b-boy jams and battles, establishing his name as one of the premier talents in the scene. DP, an active member of the Universal Zulu Nation and Supreme Beings, served as the resident DJ of the well-known Braggin’ Rites battles, which have been re-established as of October 2009, and also held down the wheels of steel at notable battles such as Kings of NY, Bboy Massacre, the 2007 Zulu Nation Anniversary, The Battle On Shaolin, and the Skill Methodz 10th Year Anniversary.

While he was making a name for himself amidst the b-boys and b-girls of New York City, DP was still making sure that he was making moves in other realms of Hip Hop as well. As his DJ career progressed, he had the opportunity to DJ for the likes of Miri-Ben-Ari, Lauryn Hill, The Fugees, Estelle and John Legend. His cuts and scratches have been featured on a multitude of tracks, including those of artists such as Pumpkinhead, Jadakiss, Marco Polo, Immortal Technique, Kurious Jorge and Statik Selektah. He also teamed up with DJ’s Blowout, Xplor, and GI Joe to form a crew known as Turntable Anihilists, who have been living up to the name for quite a few years by releasing various mixtapes that have received positive reviews, including the Fire Your DJ and Underworld series. He has also appeared on TV shows such as MTV’s My Super Sweet 16 episode about Star Trak recording artist Teyana Taylor. DP even performed in a Broadway play entitled Soular Power’d, produced by Kwik Step and Rokafella of Full Circle Productions. This opened the door to another Broadway opportunity in the form of NY Hip Hop Legends, produced by Rennie Harris. Both productions ran successfully for three weeks at the prestigious New Victory Theatre in NYC. Besides performing in New York hotspots such as SOB’s and the Nuyorican Poets Café, DP One has performed on various continents, rocking shows in Colombia, South Africa, Japan, Iceland and in nearly every country in Western Europe. Currently, thanks in part to the growth of technology and the internet, DP one showcases his talent for free to the world, in the form of two internet radio shows. He is one of the resident DJ’s for The Wax Cafe on from 5pm to 7pm (EST) Fridays, with host Social Ebonics. He also appears every Wednesday night on The B Side with DJ Enuff & DJ Quiz from 10pm to 12am on

Although DP One places emphasis on showcasing the positivity that Hip Hop has to offer to the world and making sure that he is contributing to the progression of the various art forms that it encompasses, he takes this same approach to a smaller scale and strives for progression on a personal level. As a person who is constantly seeking to learn different scratch patterns, perfect a new routine, and dig through crates for hidden gems, he continues to grow and expand his knowledge and skills as a b-boy, DJ, and emcee, as styles, music, and technology evolve as well. The sky is the limit for DP One as he looks forward to nothing but bigger and better things to come in the future.

NEO-SOUL,SOUL,HIP HOP- ‘Wake Up’! The John Legend Aus Tour Mixtape By DJ Trey (

John Legend Australian Tour Mixtape By DJ Trey

Hello folks .. This is Dj Trey here .. Just giving you a little bit of insight to my latest John Legend – Wake Up Everybody Mixtape! … It’s nothing too fancy, just a good mix of some of my favorite JL tracks and some of his best features and also some good remixes and live performances – all just to get you geared up for his upcoming tour. I think any hardcore JL fan will appreciate this mixtape. Even if you aren’t a major fan of his work I guarantee – if you love you some good, wholesome soul and a lil’ bit of Hip-Hop .. this will definitely get your head boppin’.

I’ve started the mix off with JL’s acapella version on ‘Rollin’ In The Deep’. The track itself is amazing and what he brings to it (on an ACAPELLA level) is just immaculate. Not only does he sound crisp and intense – there’s also a gentleness which is ironically fitting to the song. It’s a good introduction to people are unfamiliar with him and .. it’s a great rendition for people who are familiar with the original.

The mixtape goes on exploring a lot of his earlier work and a lot of album filler/B-side tracks. There is way too many Kanye features on the tape but I think that these two compliment each other too much to ignore. Especially on their latest track together – ‘Blame Game’ (I would’ve included Chris Rock‘s monologue – but it would’ve killed the vibe.. even though it’s HELL funny!) … Also on the mixtape their is some of their very first work together – the track that I first heard John Legend on – ‘Selfish’ by Slum Village. I love this track! Classic cut! I remember watching this video clip over and over and for AGES had no idea who the singer was… for that fact I never had any idea who Fonzworth Bently was (dancing around in the clip the whole damn time!) .. Only when the single ‘Used To Love U‘ dropped did I finally find out who the singer with the receding hair line was! Jkz!

Here’s the clip for you to check out:

Slum Village – Selfish Ft. Kanye West & John Legend:

There’s a lot of good features on the tape .. Common, Consequence, Mary J, Estelle, Pete Rock & CL Smooth .. I tried to get enough good features on there and still allow every song to run it’s necessary coarse. The mixtape ends with what I believe is one of his ultimate .. all time tracks .. ‘Ordinary People‘. It’s the only slow jam on the mixtape (even though he has a undeniable collection of them) .. I didn’t want there to be too many slow jams .. I wanted this to be a feel good mixtape, to really get people looking forward to his concert. I actually wanted to end the mix off with George Benson & Al Jarreau’s cover of the song .. Just because it is such a smoooooth version of the song .. and really this is one of those songs where everybody already knows the words – this version allows the music to speak for itself.

If you haven’t heard it before, it’s definitely worth a listen:

George Benson & Al Jarreau – Ordinary People:

BUT! after hearing this Live version with The Roots .. I couldn’t let this not be on the Mix .. especially because this mix is promo for the upcoming concert – this is exactly the kind of performance we can expect from the man when he arrives !! but you GOTSTA be patient for the track :p

I remember going to see John Legend live at The Metro in Sydney for just about $25 .. that was in 2004 or 2005 .. the show was AMAZING.. I barley knew any tracks (because his album hadn’t even dropped yet) .. but it was one of the BEST concerts I’ve ever been too – EVER! .. I also remember after one of his tours here .. there was an after party at Mylk (now known as Nevermind) .. I went up to him and shook his hand! Such a humble guy he was happy to talk to anyone – I really hope he’s still that guy .. we’ll have to wait till the weekend to find out!

Hope you enjoy the mix .. and if this is going to be your first time seeing John Legend live .. I hope you have same amazing experience I had way back when..
